  1. We have had a few world class players at Wednesday, Chris Waddle was one, technically excellent, what a player.
  2. They either want a change in the dressing room, that would explain a lot after a decent start to the season, Monk just simply can't motivate them. or They have given up on the season, from being in a decent 3rd place seems a bit strange. This is when I think maybe the off field issues have affected them mentally without realising it. The performance against Man City wasn't bad, they are one of the best teams in Europe, easy to say but if you can turn up for that one then why not Brentford away. Simply, Brentford wanted it more and they were willing to run further and faster, that happens a lot to us.
  3. I can accept players being played at a level they aren't ready for, most notably the younger players. I can accept players being out of form. With the 2 scenarios above you would expect a manager/coach to be fully aware of it and try to work through it. What I will never accept are players who are happy to lose, you will lose games, the best teams in the world lose games but we have to have a reaction. Both coaches and fans need a reaction from the players, Monk isn't getting one, we aren't getting one, the players are doing the bare minimum.
  4. It's very difficult for a fan to look at this and see these players for what they are. Many of them are getting paid very well to play a sport, but to them it's a job. A couple of poor seasons to them is nothing, they still get paid and more often than not there's another club ready to give them another contract. It's like with anything, when things get too easy you stop working for it, human nature. Hats off to all the lads at the highest level, delivering the goods every week.
  5. Reaching the play off final is a pretty successful season, you don't have to agree. After dropping into league 1 and then scrapping for survival for so long the 2 seasons in the top 6 were great. Again, you don't have to agree. Our signings after the play off final were poor and we are still paying for it. That's manager business though, is it not? Signing of players and tactics are not Chansiri's fault. In terms of manager support Chansiri's done his best and all the managers we have had have been supported, some too long. I can't hate Chansiri because he doesn't sack a manager every time we hit a poor run of form. Some of the off field issues, ie ticket prices haven't helped and is why the fanbase are turning. imo. He's still being blamed for many mistakes the managers have made, thats just a bit simple.
  6. Chansiri is trying, he's just struggling, he is genuine and wants what's best for SWFC. bought the club and invested heavily on the player budget. had our 2 best seasons under Carlos only to fail to gain promotion. Carlos signed experienced players to get us over the line which now proves to be a big mistake. we had no real long term plan, we are paying the price for that now. Luhukay was a mistake. Bruce was the right choice but at the wrong time. Monk started well but he looks to be struggling with arguably the best group of players we have had since the prem days. FFP is strangling us, when so many clubs have got away with it in the past. The time we do have a bit of money to spend we are being told we can't spend it. Typical. Truth is we are in this position because of poor management.
  7. So if Monk is isolated within the group, what is Bullen there for? Maybe Bully fancies another go at it and is quite happy for Monk to fail. Surely Bullen is the link from players to manager, is this where we have issues? Hutch and Westy dropped by Luhukay, brought back in by Bullen. Can you see where I'm going with this?
  8. Senior players that don't care then: Palmer, Fox, Borner, Iorfa, Lees, Lee, Bannan, Fletcher, Harris and Forestieri. Performances suggest, Fox, Borner, Iorfa, Lee, Bannan, Forestieri Harris and Fletcher care. Palmer isn't a kid anymore and should be banging people out in the changing room, however, he's very laid back. Tom Lees is a weird one, performances are weak but he retains the armband, surely if he wasn't getting vocal or angry then he would lose it. Windass, Wickham, De Cruz and Murphy on loan. Dawson a youngster really. Not having it. Now if Rhodes, Westwood, Winnall and Hutch are the players not caring then it shouldn't be impacting results. However, Westwood and Hutch have always given 100% even when not in the best form. None of it makes any sense. The only option is the players have lost faith in Monk and are collectively trying to get rid.
  9. Probably not, why do good keepers cost a lot of money? Karius?
  10. You haven't got a f'kin clue about football. Bored of reading your posts, dull.
  11. Wouldn't it be brilliant if we could find a keeper that kept a record number of clean sheets 2 seasons in a row. Probably cost a bit because those types of keepers win you points.
  12. He did brilliantly to get in that position, it should go down to a very, very good stop from Lee Camp. Most of you couldn't run that distance in a week, never mind with a ball and a keeper to beat.
  13. If Hutch and Westwood are the problem then why have the rest of the squad downed tools, its doesn't make sense. If they were the bad apples and Monk drops them then the rest of the players should be supportive and grafting for the gaffer. Truth is, they are coasting through games and doing the bare minimum.
  14. Man management or lack of, means another manager being sacked.
