Five defeats on the bounce, six earlier in the season. Kind of suggests the team is rank. However I don't buy it. I'm under no illusions we are the best in this league, or even anywhere close to it, but I don't think we are that bad.
Good goalie and back up keeper.
Defence could be improved but I think is reasonable for this division.
Lots of options in midfield and on wings.
Three decent strikers.
In an ideal world we should be looking at say three key signings on top of the core squad we have and then no reason we shouldn't be challenging around play offs next season.
So if the players are good enough then you have to look to the manager and his coaching staff. Ollie has had more than enough time to get to know his best team. Give one or two players a chance I get that at this time of the season but the overriding job of any manager is to win games. Sorry but his record is very poor since his return. A new manager often gives teams a lift. To be fair it did for the first 45 mins against Norwich!
Another poor appointment and I can honestly say first one I haven't supported and understood. It's like getting hammered and saying to your mate 'wouldn't it be nice if Ollie came back and we won the Champions League, hic.' You have sobered up by the next morning. Only this time no alcohol was involved so no real excuse.
He will stay. I have no doubt about that. However my expectation levels are rock bottom.
