That’s a disturbing thought, that he might have only just noticed 

Think he noticed, but after this week the benefit of doubt must surely have gone from his thinking.

He looks like most of the faces leaving Hillsborough after the game today - he knows the character and resolve of the players isn't there. I suspect he's worried that this could be the norm rather than a blip.

Agreed 

He’s always talked about clever players that ‘get it’ - that they’re the footballers he wants.

Dont think there are many of them ...

Since K Lee has come back hes looked like that ornament that the wife has broke and every super strength glue you try doesnt work except that last one you used.... but every time you pick it up you dread it's going to part in your hands ..

It's too fragile to touch ...

It's got to go right at the back of the cabinet.. 

In football terms that's Salford FC .....

 

Ay up Al...

Who in the squad has been unfairly frozen out? He's given just about everybody a fair chance to stake a claim. For sure some options may be better than others, but I don't think it's fair to say he hasn't tried different things.

 

It seems a lot of people are pinning their hopes on us being active in the transfer window to rescue the situation. But we are in a dire financial position with little prospect of funds being generated by player sales. I'd be surprised if too much happened.

I’m not saying anyone’s been frozen out. What I’m saying is it’s the same old same old every time. 
We played Stoke who have big Centre half’s and we lump it up. Really? 

We play Cardiff with Flint and then also Bamba. We lump it up. Really? 
All I’m saying is try something different. Lee has lost pace but older players adapt their style. Perhaps he can. Try it. 
Try someone with pace through the middle running at Shawcross or Flint? 
We just lump it, lump it lump it. 
Bannan and Hutch in a two man midfield. Why? Should that be our four Centre halves. 
Same old same old and it’s getting worse game by game.

None in our team have a football brain. Never choose the right option.

Never give each other a simple pass when things aren’t going well.

Westwood, Lees, Hutch, Reach, Nuhui, Winnall, Rhodes and Forestieri can all go for me. They have had their chance here and now need to be moved on. None of them justify their wages.

 

Palmer and Fox should be backup full backs, we need some top notch upgrades here.

 

A full squad refresh required. Sick of being let down by the same players. This festive period has confirmed what i already knew. 

 

Monk has a big job on his hands.

Get Tony Toms in - he’d have them training over Stanage for the next week.

Even at his age I bet he still has more fight and fitness in him than the whole flipping' team!

A midfield 2 of BB and SH is struggling to have an impact on the game and is being bypassed with long balls down the channel to strikers not suited to running the channels. 
 

Bannan is always looking for the Hollywood pass out wide as there are no runners from midfield and no pace up top. 
 

We need 3 back in the middle whether that’s 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 which is surely worth a shot?
 

The last 3 games have absolutely made my eyes bleed and resembled something from an FA cup game on an allotment of a pitch in mid January. Grim beyond belief.

 

Only Iorfa scores above 7 today.

Is there any coming back as a slacking player when you’ve been found out by both the fans AND manager?

 

I think Monk has to make a statement, has to sacrifice one of our supposed big names, to regain the squad’s attention. It has to be done! 

 

 

Jos tried that

Has Monk been able to bring in his own coaching staff?

Still really undecided about Monk. 

 

Same.

 

His football is dire but until the last 3 games, the results were decent enough to paper over the cracks.

 

Never been automatically promoted as manager though, or even made the playoffs.  That probably isn’t going to change at Wednesday unfortunately.

How many more managers are his set of players going to get sacked before the fans realise that it is the players fault?

Monk spot on. Players just dont seem hungry enough and don't have that burning desire to succeed.

Only an observation but he has been sat pondering on the bench rather than on the sidelines. Almost like he realises it's like talking to yourself. 

 

Hull fans sang it was just like Wembley and it was, lacking the energy, pace and power today as we did that day. 

 

Frankly watching us is boring, it is too slow and predictable. Bannan is left to do everything in the midfield and harsh as it sounds he is part of the problem. However he needs players in front of him that he can feed with either a short ball to feet or one for them to chase

 

The bit in bold is the ironic bit. Must have been 4 or 5 times today where Bannan and Hutch were passing between themselves just in front of our box. Only for them to then look up searching for someone to pass to in the middle of the park where they were both supposed to be. 

 

The Hollywood balls from both of them today were because they were not actually in midfield to be passed to and in turn pass to the forwards. You cant have a deep lying playmaker in the same midfield as a deep lying defensive midfielder. By doing that We just force ourselves into stupid long ball football and leave the forwards to either come deep or be isolated from play. 

 

As good as he is, Bannans play style is hard to accomadate and its at times a big part of the issues we have. Its likely the reason why hes not playing international football too. 

 

Nobody in this team is irreplacable and we should not fear selling any one of them. We need a freshen up big time.

How long do we persevere with the same group of players who have failed to us out of this division for the last four years before DC realises they are never going to get us promoted.?
