To be honest blonde I think he's looking somewhat more long-term. Staying up is the single most important thing. If we drop out of this season's UEFA but qualify for next season via the Carling Cup by winning on Sunday all well and good. If he fields a weakened side on Thursday and we do win - all well and good especially as we're creeping up the table.
Not sure if that actually makes sense to anyone but me but what I'm trying to say is this seaon is basically a wash-out. We need a good start to next season in the EPL and qualify for next season's UEFA cup on Sunday.
C O Y S !!
I get that, it's the attitude he's giving. The way he's phrased things makes it really clear that he's making excuses, he expects a pounding Thurs and to get beaten Sun, and that's what annoys me. It's like he's sending the players out, and just as their about to run onto the pitch, he's tapping them on the shoulder and saying "by the way, you see that fella you're playing against? He's better than you. But don't worry, I'm sure your mum's proud of you".
I just don't think it's sensible for a manager to make it so clear that they think they'll get beaten; my boss would never say to me "why don't you put a bid in to that client? I'm sure our company's not up to it and someone else will do a better job of the bid then you, but give it a go" because it'd just piss me off and I probably wouldn't do it as well as I could.
Good job I'm not a chairman - as that is tantamount to saying that all the buys over the last two years were cr*p.
We spent what in the last transfer window? Is that more then Villa,Everton,Hull.........etc combined? And that was spent purely to avoid the drop?
Look at the squad thread. I know there's the issue of being cup tied - but if our squad isn't better than just 'avoiding' relegation - then I give up.
'arry should be saying - 'look you bunch - you get paid a kin fortune, get out there and sweat lard'. 3 games in a week with a squad of 30? When all you live for is to play football? What?
I bet Daws would say that he'd relish the chance to play all three..!
