Its not rocket science

It really isn’t that complicated , the prinicipal problem is that we don’t have enough Championship quality players.
The problem is compounded because most of our key foreign imports /new players haven’t played this many games in a season ever before .As a matter of interest if you look at the playing records of Ben Haim , Bikey, JBG, Vitokele, Buyens , most of them haven’t played more than 30 club games in one season for either a long time or ever. We are only half way through a season and they are virtually all reaching a record number of appearances.
You might say they get paid £10k a week and they are young and fit , so who cares , but it is evident from watching them that they are mentally tired , which is just as problematic.
As SCP used to say you need 2 experienced players for each position. We haven’t got anywhere near that.

It doesn’t really matter who the manager is . As we all know , Bob Peeters who knew nothing about the league or its players did pretty well with the resources he was given by Doctor Evil. SCP, who is an experienced and successful manager at this level did pretty well whilst the team was being dismantled around him.
This new bloke , Guy Losing might be a great manager , but unless he gets (at least) 3 or 4 experienced, physically tough ( preferably already British based) players , the results will continue to disappoint.
Airy fairy , tippy tappy , non heading ,non tackling, glove wearing, network club, unfit underperformers need not apply .

Maybe what Doctor Evil and Vanessa Kensington really want is a rocket scientist in which case they should have reappointed Dowie.

    Cannot agree more, but only a few of us were saying that much earlier in the season when many were applauding the trianglar on the ground passes around our own half as being a prme example of the modern game. .

    Unfortunately this isn’t a true reflection to what I witnessed yesterday as the players who didn’t tackle, chase or challenge were not only the “network players” but players who were also here under Powell or was brought in by Powell for Championship level football.

  3. On our turnover we can’t afford 22 championship quality players. We have enough that are good enough but they need to be playing a different way. I’d do it myself for whatever wages Guy Losing is on and I am certain Albury Addick could do likewise though to be fair he may be a bit more expensive than me but might be worth the extra.

    The problem lies with the coaching and motivation. Nobody is going to provide funds for squad building!
