Garry Monk deserves HUGE credit

But every team doesn’t though. That’s my point. Hull ran longer & harder than us. Cardiff ran harder & faster than us in the first eight minutes. Stoke worked for 97 minutes, we didn’t. The 3 games since we went 3rd. 
Before that, we were trying harder than our opponents.

Ah, the secret to winning, TRY HARDER!  

 

Top drawer stuff here.

You measured all this empirically then?

 

Sounds like 'proving' the sun comes up because you locked the front door the previous night.


Saw it with my own eyes, if that’s what you mean?

GM deserves credit for yesterday too.

 

Got a performance / reaction out of his team, got the tactics right, and successfully chanced his arm on young Urhoghide.

 

Well done Garry Monk.

Not having anyone slag Monk off, hes working absolute wonders with an ageing, boring team. Anyone actually takes their blue sunglasses off will see we are punching well above our weight in the league. All this without any of his own players in and no pre season

Some of the posters in this thread that lavished praise on Monk at Christmas have now completely turned and want him gone.

And why would that be ?  Mmmmmm  let.me.see.  

 

Ah yes. lol

Great now how's about something enjoyable to watch. Effective as in score goals tighter at the back. Let's have Bannan pull the strings but have others doing something too. All going through Bannan too much. Don't count our chickens yet Jos had us in play offs playing this style but didn't last. We have been lucky so many times this year yesterday too. That's okay but you need to learn and improve or it falls apart. Been here before, need to take control of games need to score earlier more often and go for more plus holding possession more. Change things up not all through Bannan. Keep Fletcher and Rhodes together as much as possible. Don't get too excited if Monk is going to get us up there is a lot to improve still. We have had great results yes but not reflecting most of the games. We have been boring and slow most games punctuated with goals. Let's improve out of the effective dross please..... So we actually can go up. 

 

Nail on the head and got slated for it.

Whilst on the surface it seems this thread has not aged well, another interpretation could be that it shows just how many mistakes have been made in two months. It could also suggest the players have well and truly thrown their toys out of the pram.

Praise where and when its deserved, and criticism where and when that’s deserved too.

 

Called being balanced and objective.

 

Think of Rolf Harris pre and post Two Little Boys

And if we have an upturn, opinions will probably swing again. 

 

He’s started a process, to which I, personally, am prepared to cut him a little slack with. 

 

He’s gone off the beaten track with his squad selections, probably to fill the voids where we have our shortcomings. 

 

I'm all for a bit of experimentation, but we've paid the price. However, even a prat like me can see there's a solid tactical genesis in the making. 

 

Upturn starts Saturday. 

 

UTO 

 

Oh, and stick Eratt-Thompson at RB GM.

Just wish there where any signs of things improving. There just aren’t any though. Very worrying times. Players are a disgrace, feel a bit for Monk but some of his decisions, tactics, playing players out of position and more importantly results and no where near the standard required.

What are you basing that on?

 

We were abysmal in the 3 games between Christmas and New Year. The manager then slated the squad after Wigan, we were supposed to see an upturn after that, then we signed some new players, they were supposed to bring some much needed energy and focus to our attack......we have failed against sides in the bottom 6 games after game, I can't hold out much hope for an upturn.

 

I was open minded about Monk's appointment, certainly willing to give him a chance and you can't argue against the OP in this thread at that time. Monk has failed to adapt to the loss of a couple of key players since then though and has chucked in some baffling tactics and selections along the way. 5 points from 10 games against some of the worst teams in the division is worrying and the performances don't fill anyone who has witnessed them with a great deal of optimism.

Saturdays game was recoverable, till Urhoghide got sent off, coupled with ref and linesmens ineptitude.

 

Should still have beaten them with 10 men all said, but there was something in the play, particularly in the first 15 minutes that were inspiring. Pace going forward, slicker passing, just got marked out of the wing play eventually, instead of utilising the open space. 

 

Monk will have picked up on it, and address it accordingly.
