What would you have expected monk to say?
"There are some positives to come out of the game. We were unlucky to lose Fox so early. The rest of the lads worked their socks off?"
What sort of reaction would he have got from the fans?
It was better that he said it wasn't acceptable and didn't name any individual/s.
They know who they are and either ship up or ship out.
If it is player power and they are trying to out Monk then I think they will fail. It's not as though like Jos everybody was against him. Monk has good support from most of the fans and most can see he is doing his best with what he inherited and without help from any of his previous assistants . Probably DC wouldn't cough up any extra for more staff.
With the financial restrictions and possible punishment hanging over the club's head then it's not an easy time for the club or it's supporters.
No excuse for the players who are priveledged to pull on a Wednesday shirt to under perform as they did last night and against Blackburn.
