Young team needs support right now

Recommended Posts

  The Jos out brigade need a serious reality check. How can anyone else in this situation really do better. Against top teams on another day we could have beaten them even when playing below par.  Experienced players have played very poorly recently and the injury curse has reappeared which I now consider proof we have lightweight players not up to the fitness required for this league. None of this is Jos fault. He has stated only young players will be signed when possible and nobody with injury history.  We constantly have a team of up to  11 injured players. The situation has gone on so long now it's really affecting the club badly. The young players have been thrown in quickly and much quicker than Jos wanted and they have done remarkably well. After a few bad results inexperienced players are more likely to lose confidence. This is why at such an important time in the season we get behind the manager and players. Hopefully we can help turn our fortunes around as results can become terminal very quickly at this stage.

I can see what his plan is. Young players, young squad future.

 

but are fans willing to wait 3-4 seasons for frutiation?

Fans are probably willing to wait but they are paying a premium price due to complete naivety at the top.

No is the answer. But the fact is that we have no other option with the mess cc left us with. Aging injury prone highly paid players on long term contracts is cc legacy that Jos has to sort out.

Even more reason to get behind them. We are all up against it

Some of the youngsters need taking out of the firing line or they will end up like Spurr, Palmer n McAlister!! All the potential but they will buckle in a poor under performing squad.

To be fair, from that team tonight I’d only class Dawson and Baker as ‘young’. 

 

Its hardly Jossys Giants.

At least come up with a plan that uses the senior players that are available. They will learn a lot more from them

There’s giving the kids experience next to senior players and then there’s throwing them in at the deep end and expecting miracles.

... And while our nearest and dearest are progressing along nicely, adding to their squad with shrewd signings, and continuing to get results while playing an entertaining brand of attacking football and at a competitive price. Success can be delivered as well as being a work-in-progress.

DC did what CC asked as he convinced him that he would get us promotion.  CC failed and spent alot of money on the wrong players on long term contracts. Until the club can get rid of these Jos options are very limited. Jos is doing as well as any other manager would do in this situation

I agree but the team was selected with recent performances in mind and the core of the team is going to be youth from now on

Its all so easy to just sit here and blame Carlos, but D. C signed the deals and allowed Carlos to get us into this mess. He also left him to carry on digging us into the hole, then blamed us for it all insisting we made him sign Rhodes and that we were to blame for his buddies short comings.

That's my point. The experienced players loss of form will be affecting the young players confidence. Even if their own form is ok atm. The young players are our only hope for a decent season as none of the established experienced players except reach, bannon  and dare I say pelupessy are really promotion material

That's not true. DC said at the time the fans wanted Rhodes too. DC put his faith in CC for right or wrong. Rhodes would have been a fabulous signature if the team created chances for him

The manager’s put them in there, it’s his job to protect them. If he can’t, it doesn’t say a great deal about his qualities as a manager.

On one leg that is difficult. Youth learn by playing in training against good players.

I think 2000 Wednesday fans there is showing full support.

Too many swaps and changes are killing any sense of teamwork dropping Lees tonight was a big mistake
