Carlos apologises to the fans

Recommended Posts

I have to wonder who is actually managing the team. Is DC perhaps instructing Carlos to play in a certain way? It seems impossible to me that after playing the exact same last season and failing that he would repeat the exact same manoeuvres this season? Should it be Chansiri not Carlos out?

Like many others I called for Carlos to go after the play off farce last season.

Despite the fact that he seems a very charming individual that does not put points on the table and I just think todays performance or should I say total lack of one was inevitable as nothing pre season suggested he would change his tactics/style of play.

I truly believe that the lack of transfer activity is down to players not wanting to come to us to play Carlos's negative restrictive style.

How anyone cannot utilise the strike force we have is beyond me.

Please Carlos release the shackles or do the honourable thing

We have had all summer to get pace, power and strength into that side and we have not addressed any of those areas of weakness!

 

If he can't see those areas need strengthening then he may as well walk now!

A dynamic, proven goalscorer?  Good luck with that, esp with us on the FFP edge.

That's why I'm saying we need to shuffle the pack- i.e., sell one, maybe two strikers and probably someone else to give us some flexibility in the market.

It's quite frankly a joke we have this abundance of riches up front yet we play so negatively and create nothing. Alright it's one gAme in but it seems nothing has changed in our approach. Bringing Jones on at 0-0 sums Carlos up.

 

I didn't mind bringing Jones on, because we were getting absolutely pounded on in our own end.  That was to try and salvage a point.

 

Bringing on an extra attacker would have been suicide, we were getting completely outclassed in our own half.

Then we are back to building a new squad over the one that took 2 years to build. Just get rid of the manager who's ideas don't suit all the talent we currently have.

This high level recruitment and shuffling should have been done and dusted a month ago.

First time I have said this but think it is time too change, looks like a repeat of the friendlies, no attacking threat. 

We have 4 good strikers so why don't we play to our strengths,

Yes sure we will lose a few  games but will win far more and who cares as long as we give it a go.

Got to be a better tactic than passing the ball and no shots on target.

Don't play Hooper/Rhodes and FF up top and play long ball from Lees at their heads, then apologise afterwards.

 

Take the preventative steps and don't do it you incredibly stylish cretin, what did you think was going to happen? 

 

0 shots on target, not good enough

It's not the defeat. That hurts.But  it's how we lost. No pride no positives. It's like we haven't had a pre season and just carried on from the loss to Huddersfield

I'll take the apology but none of us should expect the same performance in the next league game.

 

New season is supposed to be about creating a proper buzz about the place, summer has done nothing from top to bottom in the club to do that.

 

Ultimately CC isn't solely responsible but his tactics and the players buying in to those tactics, he carries the can for.

 

The whole performance was a pisstake for the 5.5k that made the journey up today - sort it out fast.

You're probably right, but I think today has conformed what some were fearing in pre season- that we're out of ideas once we're over the half way line. Something needs to give.

Agreed.  This isn't working.

At one point today we had 10 of the 11 players that started the play off final on the pitch.  We haven't built on anything for 18 months.

Sadly for us to sack CC now would highlight a huge missed opportunity as opposed to having parted the ways in May/June time. NOW it would / will be much more dificult to find the right replacement to take Wednesday forward.

Here's hoping CC will see the light !

If he understood he wouldn't play 2 defensive midfielders 40 yards away from our forwards. If he understood he'd utilize our wingers effectively and not make the team rely on our fullbacks to cross the ball and slow the attack down. If he understood he'd just walk already.

 

Sorry didn't understand how to plus you, didn't mean to neg you

Carlos should have his chance to sort it out but we should have done more pre-season

 

we should have got the team settled with new recruits in early

we should have used the friendlies to try something different

 

It now looks like a completely different strategy will have to be formed in-season. Meanwhile dem bl***s are gaining momentum
