  1. The players shouldn't take responsibility for their own fitness levels at all, that's not how it works in professional sports. The person responsible for the players being correctly conditioned is actually still at the club. Would you expect any football manager to know each of these metrics for all of their squad players, or would you expect someone to be employed to monitor their performance...? I was done with CC a long time ago, last season we got lucky i felt and the football was terrible, but lamenting the poor fitness on CC when it's not his job and the team in place is still there is just aiming at the wrong guy.

  2. Jos post-match interview

    Proper salty ladybit. Chill out. Instead of swearing so much, you could have just answered the questions and points i raised.
  3. Jos post-match interview

    What do you base that assumption on? are you saying that fringe players, like joao has been up until January, need more than 8 weeks to be able to play more than 1 game per week? Pretty sure that pre season is about 8 weeks long and most would agree that the returning players aren’t in a much worse position than they would be at mid season point.
  4. Jos post-match interview

    Deary me, i guess i shouldn't be surprised at having to spell it out, but anyway... we are not in Bundesliga 2 he never had to deal with any such constraints at the clubs he's managed that even get close to the one's he's currently having to deal with, namely: injuries, players fitness, lack of transfer activity I wouldn't call him a charlatan, far from it as a football manager, but his selections thus far have been very concerning. He's been in this job nearly 2 months and is still struggling with the players fitness levels too, at what point do we stop blaming Carlos for the players poor fitness levels, to me it should be soon. I'm not knocking his achievements either, but rather than look for a quick insult, you should probably do some proper research and try to apply a bit of logic to an overall situation. He's out of his depth and the team selections and tactics are clearly showing that. Hopefully he can start showing what we hoped he would bring from past achievements and soon.
  5. Let’s say that assumption is correct, it will be difficult for him to justify with logic some of his selections. Those discussions will soon lose any confidence the players and staff have in. as per the post match interview, he’s struggling somewhat to justify his selections after the game to the press. Staff lose confidence when they no longer believe the manager knows what they’re doing.
  6. Good man management would be to bring them on slowly, amongst seasoned pro’s playing in a balanced and settled team, this would enhance their progression. Not throwing them to the lions and playing them out of position and then dropping them for no real reason when they’ve done a good job. Its absolutely bonkers man management.
  7. Jos post-match interview

    This manager is out of his depth, but it’s not his fault, he was out of work and offered a cracking job on what is probably very good money compared to others he’s had. Everyone would fake it, hoping they make it. More of these strange team selections to come. Then we’ll get rid and bring our 3rd unknown manager in on the bounce.
  8. Much more significant is the fact that when nuihu Has poor stats, we were finishing 6th and then 4th in the league.
  9. Luhukay Out

    Let’s be honest and optimistic too, say we get all our first team players back for the summer and have a fully fit squad for next season, does anyone think this guy gets us promoted? Now say we are just realistic and say what this really is, it’s a massively left field appointment of a guy none of us had heard of before and he’s not been allowed to sufficiently strengthen the squad in key areas in the transfer window. Maybe he just came for the cash because on paper this is a strange job for him to have taken.
  10. there will be a mass exodus in the summer, all these top players with injuries will leave and we'll bring in freebies for Jos to work with. The chairman is skint.
  11. Me neither, if that's what it takes to get them all back, i dare say i'd take it! Actually, nah i just couldn't ever accept that! What i would like though is some form of communication from the club as to the current status of many of the players who are injured.
  12. We've had FFP rammed down our throats since before we signed Rhodes, that's always been a concern for me, in that it's been used as a smokescreen. Now with the lack of credible info coming out about key players, it's pretty worrying, especially on the back of a very unsatisfactory transfer window. If we had long term injuries to key players, we should have signed a couple of players on loan at the very least.
  13. They're probably on appearance fees and we cannot afford to pay them. Hence the second string.
  14. I like this but with Van Aken instead of Pudil.
  15. No more of the Nuhiu nonsense

    This is a thread about Nuihu though, thus we talk about him, his contribution, the team with him in it, etc etc. It's not singling out, it's called staying on topic. More than happy to discuss the stats for fox, wallace, butterfield et al another thread though, because they are horrific too! You are correct in that the numbers do not offer up evidence that causation sits just on Nuihu's high up shoulders, but i think there's a strong case for identifying correlation, as for Nuihu to achieve those numbers requires a longer and more consistent run in the team, which almost always coincides with a downturn in form. Basically if he's playing a lot, we've too many out injured and likely we're not doing so well. Him playing shows our inept performance in the transfer market and medical room.
