If you are going to change it....change it

Recommended Posts



Agree, not as a reaction to  today but before the appointment, it would’ve made more sense for them ALL to start 1 Feb, Bullen had d9ne a great job. 

 

Bizarre, and I think most people thought so at the time.

Yeah.  Seems Steve Agnew played instead of Bully.  Must have missed that.

 

Obviously not the players fault at all.

Its in the eye of the beholder mate isn't it....

Same players, different manager....

If you want to find a fault in something surely you look to a time when yer "Toy train" was working, and when it stopped...What was different, why did it stop?

Seems some f.ookers can wind a toy train up better than others

We can never gauge "how many" ( "most people") but there were voices on here saying it. But generally people were relieved the chairman seemed to have made a good appointment and it got glossed over. It was clearly hard on Bullen, I think that was obvious, but who knew whether Aggers was any good at being a caretaker manager?

Bully had some shockers last time he was in charge.

 

I'm still leaning towards the squad weaknesses prevalent for the last 3 years.

He did last time but not this time

One point I would like to make about all this is that I cannot understand why we have a change of management and delay the services of the Boss, but still bring in his understudies.

Seems peculiar to me.

Is it for Agnew to turn it around though? I watched today’s game in the Hull end with a city supporter and felt slightly embarrassed by how negative we played.  It felt like Westwood was wasting time from the first time he touched the ball and Fletcher looked completely isolated. 

As a team we seem to really struggle against high energy pressing opposition and we had no answer to Hull today. 

It seems inconceivable that Hull were bottom of the table in October, because they looked a very polished side today, although we were so passive it just gave them more and more confidence as the game went on.

When you look at today’s performance I agree with the OP that it looks like a flawed decision to relegate Bullen. I just hope that by the time Bruce takes over it hasn’t worsened into a fire fighting situation for him.

I think it was a brave decision, certainly a bit unusual, but still might prove beneficial. Just maybe it will set things up for Bruce to make an immediate impact, with a squad already starting to get used to his methods.

 

Most of what I've read on Owlstalk tonight sounds like a massive over-reaction.

Sometimes you can only play as well as the opposition allows, sometimes we are poo.

Today it was both.

Bruce is the man we wanted. He has commitments which he insisted in sticking to and will have insisted his backroom team come in to start his work. We need a big clear out of the playing squad because it simply isn't goid enough.

Its one of many peculiar things that continue to happen at our club. This has to be a first that a club appoint a manager who is not gonna be there for a month yet give the job in the meantime to somebody who definetly would not have been given the managers job in the first place.
