If you watch the highlights you will see he looks quite shocked/surprised and embarrassed. These were his emotionsAbsolutely nothing. No emotion, good or bad. No despair, no protesting, not even guilt. Nothing. He has personally lost us points. A single player has cost us points.
Remember Cresswell made a couple of mistakes and came good. It was just one of those things and highlighted because we’re not doing well and looking for a scapegoatIf you watch the highlights you will see he looks quite shocked/surprised and embarrassed. These were his emotions
Great post and spot onFor those who are tearing JE a new one and think bringing in a new manager is a good idea, along with comparing him to GR's record: Up until this point, there is very little difference between the two this season, other than JE has had a terrible time with player injuries. Off the top of my head, more problems than GR had, I think.
When JE did have a settled team, he put a good run together. Even in defeat, there have been some good performances, although the team couldn't sustain it for most of the game. Of course, as usual, some shit as well. But once again, so did GR. Norwich springs to mind.
I was one of those who didn't want GR out or gone and he surprised me when left, but at times, I have seen some much better Football under JE than most times with GR. For me, he needs support and more time.
Below are both records this season so far. Not much in it really, and certainly not enough to think JE is some kind of fucking inexperienced, Football numpty, who tactically doesn't know what he is doing.
GR - 17 points from 15 games F15 A19 (-4)
JE - 16 points from 16 games F16 A21 (-5)
If JE continues his point per game ratio that should be enough this season to stay up. If the chairman has faith in JE and his attempt at changing the playing style/culture at the club, I should think Cooper and a couple of others, although great servants, won't be in his A team plans. It looks like he want's younger players, probably with pace, if that's the case, it could be good news for some of our younger talent at the club in the under 18's and under 21's. And of course, those out on loan getting experience.
Professor of the bleeding obvious rant over.
Not a right back either I don't think.When tango made his name at spurs it was roaming forward at right back.maybe right wing back might be an option.hes no centre half
Spot on, wasn't laying that at JE's door, as you say this happened under Rowett too, The buck stops with the players , the core of the team are all still here from that game, Hopefully we can limp to end of the season & stay up then look at moving some of these lads on, clearly the fight isn't there for a lot of themYou are right to worry. Everybody is worried about that, and oppo teams must all know by now how it is.
Just, please don't run away with the idea that this is a Joe Edwards problem.
We were like this before he arrived.
I have one word to offer in evidence...BLACKBURN.
I rest my case.
Not saying it wasn’t mate but, at the kop end probably everyone would have said clash of legs and over reaction dive. It was us, ref couldn’t point quicker no second thought.
