Amazing how things change day by day.
Why didn't monk just say this? Why the dodge tactics when he was asked about the situation at weekend? All this cr@p about knowing what a successful dressing room looks like. If Westwood is out of the plans and Westwood himself knows that why didn't he just say so? What's left to lose? Don't get it.
All this has done now is make Monk look foolish and play into the arms of anyone who wants to prove he's lost the respect of the dressing room if he ever actually had it in the first place.
Just don't understand why a manager would say to a player "sorry mate, you're not in my plans and I'm not going to be playing you. But don't tell anyone aye, let's just keep this to ourselves. I'm sure nobody will notice so I don't expect there to be any questions"
