  1. That is total crap. 

    I don’t understand why managers think they can get away with this poo. 

    Most supporters are not naive. We’ve watched football for years. Many of us have played - some to a pretty good standard. When we’re not watching Wednesday we’re watching other teams on the telly, managing/coaching kids teams or Sunday league. 

    We’re not stupid. He can’t expect to get away with talking testicles like that. 

    That was an awful display. We were chaotic in defence and toothless in attack. We were tentative, tackle shy and timid. 

    The “team” was composed of players out of position and playing a “formation” they are not equipped to play. By the end of the game I’m convinced no one knew what on earth or where on earth they were supposed to be playing. 

    I was hopeful for this manager but I honestly don’t know what on earth he’s doing and I’m not sure he does either.  His attitude is awful. He’s terrified of every opponent, though if he’s going to set up teams so badly I’m not surprised! Maybe he thinks that every team In this league is fantastic cause his teams are always as bad as this.

    You’re the one who brought up “typically he’s been sacked after less than 18 months” as some kind of yardstick to measure him by. After all your posturing about providing “evidence” which I duly did you then just shift the goalposts again so it’s no wonder he’s a poor manager if every time you get proved wrong you just shift the goal posts to suit your agenda.


    I don’t particularly like or dislike him, he’s just another run of the mill efl manager the same as many others.
    What I do dislike however are the constant baseless throwaway comments by the same posters that have nothing more to say other than “Monk is a terrible manager” or “worst manager ever”

    The same posters who then just disregard any evidence that is contrary to their opinion, The same posters who were spaffing their pants when we brought Pulis in as now we had a “proper manager” then we’re suddenly less excited once results didn’t go our way which is starting to look like a familiar pattern.


    This will be my last comment on this thread. I've spent far too much time on Monk than he deserves.


    Monk's history shows that when things are good he can achieve results. He did that here, at Swansea and at Leeds. Unfortunately when things aren't good he doesn't know how to change things positively. He was sacked from Swansea after a run of one win in eleven. He missed out on promotion with Leeds after a terrible run in the last 8 games. Same here - a good run followed by 6 months of purgatory.


    He can't seem to get the best out of players - freezing senior plyers out of the team which he did here and at Birmingham is not good management.


    So I think he's a poor manager because he has shown in most of his managerial positions that he can't manage effectively consistently, and when the pressure is on he doesn't know what to do.


    You might think I'm being unfair. I don't care.
