    Disappointing 2011/12

    So what has gone wrong for us. Always in the top 4 until Christmas, and then relegation form since. I was at the cardiff match on Saturday gone and felt the players did not know how and where they were supposed to be playing in the first half. Mcdonald and the other scot were just arguing with everyone and spent more time with their hands in the air in frustration than playing for the team. We need team players and solid tactics with plan a, b and c already in mind before each game. Scouts need to watch the opposition and understand their strengths and weaknesses, it doesn't seem to be happening from what I have seen(which i will readily admit is not much since I live abroad). Mowbray was a revelation, when he first came, but seems to have gone stale. Remember Tony, you are only as good as the team you build around you, so consider changes in the summer and dont rely on old mates all the time, football is a business not a chariety adn the fans deserve more attractive football.
