The way we’re playing, we won’t finish in the play offs. We’re going backwards - slump in form (it’s now 4 points from 18.) Injuries have played their part and I’m not sure if the squad (and Carlos) can hack it. On the evidence of what I’ve seen, it’s difficult for me to have any sort of faith. There’s a lack of fight from the players and you can’t teach that. There’s a weak mentality in the camp and that comes down to the manager.
No pressing, passing is really slow and no movement. Although when you take your creative players out - in our case Fernando - you’re always going to find It hard. We've got away with it all season and now it's starting to show. We're easy to play against and boring to watch. Apart from a select few games, we’ve not looked exciting.
Carlos has 8 games to sort it out and prove me wrong or he's out of a job. I just can’t see him being here for another season if we don’t achieve top 6. DC surely won’t be happy given how much he’s put into the team. If we do make the play offs and not go up then it’s 50/50. It all comes down to DC and patience - he’s backed Carlos heavily with money. Will he want to do that again?
There’s still time but it’s running out. Making a change now isn’t the solution. Reassess in May and take it from there. If he stays I'll back him, if not I'll be gutted but will move on. I love Carlos and for everything he’s done but weaknesses still haven’t been addressed from last season.
