Where Have Our Standards Gone?
at 20:12:36

Re longtimefan. Carayol said himself that he could have played for another 15 minutes. McCarthy couldn't wait to take him off. And he replaced him with Hyam which was the more troubling thing about it.

Has Mick Found a Formula?
at 11:35:48

Re TR11BLU I am totally in agreement. Unfortunately Mick's biggest problem is that Skuse will come back in. I think he has to go, but I'm prepared to wait until the summer and enjoy the rest of the season.

Mick, What is Your Next Move? Or Are You Out of Ideas?
at 20:11:51

Re Mullet- I don't personally think that Mick could have led Swansea to eighth in the Premier League. Being brought up at that club means he knows how to play football in the right way. He has only just taken over at Leeds knowing his neck is always on the line, and is getting results.

I'm not suggesting they are similar as managers, just that they both are early on in their careers. I definitely don't think Mick and Monk are similar - Monk did a very good job on the whole at Swansea, and has taken a very difficult job at Leeds, and is doing pretty well.

I don't want to criticise Mick, but I struggle to see how you can't at the moment.

Re Mullet- I know it is a generalisation to clump the top 11 clubs together, but I don't think it is a coincedence that a lot of these managers are cut from a similar cloth, one which is different to Mick. It should not be a criticism of Wagner that he has rubbed off Klopp, it can only be natural to him having been his assistant. Mick's methods just don't work as well as they used to, and he needs to accept it,and quickly.

Re Currie10- I absolutely do understand how Mick operates, but I just felt this quote from him was symptomatic of his problems. It was nothing new to me. You are right that Mick rarely criticizes the players in public, but even if he considers changes, he rarely actually makes those changes.

A Plea to Mick: Don't Hold Us Back
at 18:29:42

Re southnorfolkblue If you had actually bothered to read on and then read the comments, you would see what I said about Murphy. To say he had a great game on Sunday is just totally untrue, he went through on goal twice, both times failing to get a shot off, and that was it.

Re stevieiriswatti Thank you for your positive feedback. I have felt for a long time that we simply will not get promoted under Mick, but he does well enough to keep most fans happy. Agree that it is a shame people don't read on but what can you do?

I accept defeat on Murphy, but I did find him very frustrating at times in the last two games. It may be because he needed more support.

A Plea to Mick: Don't Hold Us Back
at 15:45:00

Re rickw Again maybe 'weak link' was the wrong way of describing him, Murphy brings a lot to the table, but I don't see the point of having flying wingers getting crosses in if there is no-one to hit.

Bamford wages may be stumbling block, but he would transform our team. Agree that Chambers is bedded in for good: F-M is slightly wishful thinking.

A Plea to Mick: Don't Hold Us Back

Re artsbossbeard I knew that would be a contentious point, but I just found Murphy so frustrating to watch, both on Sunday and at Wolves. It could have been worded better, I admit, but I stand by what I said in that he is not fulfilling everything a lone striker should do, like getting on the end of crosses in the box.

Luke Chambers Will Be a Town Legend
at 08:46:44

Thank you for the mostly positive feedback!! To make things clearer, I don't actually think Chambers is good enough to play right-back for us, but there can be no doubt that he has improved a lot there. I am praising his leadership a lot more than his footballing ability.

What Do We Expect of Our Club?
at 19:42:27

Thank you for your nice comments about my blog- I personally think that Mick would hunt me down if he read my blog, but hey! I just think that while Mick remains stubborn in his team selection, we simply cannot progress. Mick has to choose between his own principles and the good of the club and its fans.

Too Many Players Are Too Comfortable in This Team
at 00:36:38

Skuse hasn't reached the level we know he can, and I'm not sure he will until he knows that he can't just walk into the team every week. I agree with what you say about Sears, I just think McGoldrick does it even better. That point came across slightly wrong in the blog. I admit to not being totally in-the-know about Oar and Malarczyk's fitness, but after Oar started at United, I thought he was fitter that perhaps he is. Thanks for the feedback!

RE MarcusEvansReborn Chambers is consistently battered by left-wingers, and is clearly so much better at CB. It would be less of a problem if we didn't have a obvious replacement, but Parr would do a way better job.

Looking Ahead: 2015/16 Season - Where Do We Need to Strengthen?
at 22:34:00

Great read. Lawrie Wilson is another potential right-back after his release from Charlton- works his socks off and loves to bomb forward. Rodolph Austin is a player I would love to see come in- he would add strength, leadership and, most importantly, goals. Martyn Woolford would be a good winger to bring in- better than what we have at the moment. Completely agree about Dean Cox- a player I have liked for a long time, and sure to leave Orient.
