Monks Game Management

It’s a mentality of the players.

 

Getting ribbed about it by youth team players at SWFC Christmas parties tells you that much.

 

Dodgy subs however, are down to Monk. 

This^^^

oldest average squad age in the league aren’t we? No excuse for playing like headless chickens. As soon as they said they had found 6 minutes of added time it was deja-vu time.

Yep.
 

And you see it happen on the pitch.

 

Board goes up and pretty much the first thing that happens is Palmer scuffs a routine clearance on the edge of the box and puts us back under pressure

 

Bit like when he did that in another game we conceded late.

 

Mentally weak.

I'm not one to have a go at the manager/team, chairman much, but God Monks game management is awful. What is that, 11/12 points we have thrown away in the last 10 minutes since he took over?

It’s not Monk, it’s the 11 dickheads on the pitch. We clam up and spend the last 5 -10 mins in our own half, just hacking it out! They need to realise that they have to play until the whistle.

Lees slices it for a needless corner, Bannan starts sliding around, Palmer kicks it out of play etc. Feel sorry for Dawson.

wondered when Lee did that, why isn’t he just shepherding it out?

According to Monks interview just now on P & G he was telling the players not to sit deep and allow pressure on to us but to get forward, seems like the players didn't listen.

When the ref is clearly being biased, we should be much smarter. Instead we have Bannan sliding round on his arse, giving away needless free kicks all over the place

If that is the case, shouldn't the manager be the one drilling it into them? I mean, I assume that the manager is paid to identify issues and fix them, while accentuating the positives.I mean, we have had pretty much the same squad for what, 4 years, and we have never thrown that many points away at a late stage as we have under monk, with the same players. Which points to the manager.

Think it is to do with the players tbh. 

 

It is their mindset. 

 

A few years ago, they were good enough to grind out narrow wins (2016/2017). Now they are not. 

 

We can't manage games for sh*t when we are winning by only a goal.

Fed up of seeing this bloke stand on the touchline like a dork while we sp*nk away another 3 points.

 

Once we scored our second goal, the ultra-defensive hoofball comes out - sorry but Monk been here long enough to sort that.

 

Awful.

Yep 

 

This group have a very soft underbelly, and it’s the reason why it needs breaking up in the summer. Can you imagine this lot going into the playoffs and having the mentality to see the job through and get promoted? I can’t

Why doesn’t Monk get out of his seat and tell Murphy or Reach or whoever to get up the pitch. That drags two of their players away from our half. It’s not all the players fault. In the heat of the moment he should be gaffering them from the sidelines. Put one either side of the pitch. Not that hard.

Absolutely pathetic. Blame Monk or the players, not good enough again.

Not as many points as this season you are right, but I honestly just think this team are a bunch of chokers. They choked at Wembley and against udders and they were throwing away points under Jos, when we couldn’t buy a win. I think even under Bruce, they threw away points when we had a sniff of the playoffs. As soon as there’s something to play for they melt.

Its football...

How many times over the years have we scored in the last minute to snatch points off teams.

Get over it

No way is that Monks' fault.

Brain dead idiots on the pitch who are ineptly captained.

Dunno about Monk's game management, think it is most down to spineless performances by those on the pitch when we get under real pressure. It is not like Monk told them "get into your box and keep passing ball to opposition'.

I was thinking this earlier - imagine leading 1-0 against Fulham at Wembley going into 6 mins of injury time. I think the team and fans would simply implode.

Systems, substitutions and tactics are largely irrelevant here. Professional players should not throw away as many points in the final minutes as we have this season.
