    GIVE TONY TIME

    how's the club shaping is a good question

    clearly relegation hurts
    clearly results turn heads

    but here's the shape for me

    1) Good manager in spite of the results
    2) Good entertaining football being played
    3) Lots of buys in two close seasons, expect more this time, and watch for the youngsters coming through (though i would like to see more home grown)
    4) transfer policy seems to be focussing on the young could be's of the future
    5) Tony would like a consistently good centre back. I think Leon Barnett will be better with another season under is belt but will look at martis/olsson partnership with interest
    6) Tony would like someone up front. I would go for Bednar/Miller but would look for a good alternative
    7) We know the midfield can play, we know they can score
    8) England international goalkeeper who has made more saves than any keeper this year. As he grows so he will become more consistent and cut out silly errors
    9) Not a bad disciplinary record. We know who lets us down and we think we might have a better footballing alternative

    I dón't think the shapes that bad.
    I would like to see better results
    I would like us to win the championship again next year (i think we're down) and would like to be better set for the year after with more settled youngsters, more confident players, more interesting buys.
    i would like to see more confidence in the manager and less knee jerk reactions
