I think we have to be a little philosophical here.
We were never realistic automatic promotion contenders as some thought two weeks ago, nor are we genuine relegation candidates (EFL notwithstanding). Monk said it right when he talked early on about us being part of a lot of teams that would be hopeful to make a mark this season.
It is true that the results have been pants and the performances dull, and no one is happy with that - neither the most optimistic or pessimistic wednesdayite.
The fact is that Monk needs time. Our managerial merry go round needs to stop at some point and Monk is as good as most that we could expect to attract.
Although everybody understands the clear out concept, it is neither reasonable nor logistically possible. The idea that we could get a brand new squad and they would gel straight away is fanciful at best.
Real, positive change is gradual, considered and collectively driven.
Quick fixes nearly never work and certainly not for a club in our position (throwing £500 million at the problem has been shown to occassionally fix things quickly:D).
So I for one will be backing the manager and the team through the next two windows, with a completely unjustified optimism that we can still do something in this league this season.
Im not sure we have too much choice! UTO
