Can somebody please explain......

Recommended Posts

what "captain" Palmer was doing for the first goal? Just seen the highlights and once again Palmer abdicates his responsibility.....he had a clear view of Meites run and failed to track him. As usual, he no doubt thought, " f--k it, leave him for the centre backs". This player is a fraud, no passion, no commitment, no belief, nothing, zilch, not one commendable attribute. Yes, he has been here years and worked under numerous managers.....but when was he ever a regular first choice player? A stop gap, Bruce saw this towards the end of last season and bought onionbhaji to replace him but he's no better.

In fairness Palmer was playing quite well until December, hence his Scotland call up. Its another part of the enigma as to why his form has dipped.

Pinpointing players constantly is part of the problem. If we have an ‘in it together’ or ‘work for the guy next to you’ attitude in the squad we’d see far better performances and you could forgive a loss if you see the effort and togetherness there.

I'm not a fan of Palmer. But to put him at fault for that goal is lunacy. Should a left back assume a player running into the centre of the pitch be picked up by the centre backs so that he doesn't leave his own wing exposed? Yes, he bloody well should. That is literally the centre back's job. If we hadn't stood off the assister and let him play the pass through, it wouldnt have been an issue.

 

To claim that a player who has been here 10 years, supports the club, came through the academy and played under various managers has no commitment or passion is just mindless scapegoating and complete garbage. 

 

He's not the best player in the world but a fraud? Give over you melt.

"doesn't leave his own wing exposed?" look at the highlights, there wasn't a reading player anywhere near him only Meite who just ran past him

Can someone explain what Palmer was doing at captain? I think that is the question. Have things got that bad.

Been a great servant for us but he is no captain.

Ahh here we go - it’s palmers fault again.

 

glad someone reminded me for a second I was starting to think it was the complete car crash of ownership, manager, overpaid, underachieving, unmotivated, lazy squad of players.


but someone reminded me it was the lad that’s played at wednesday all his life and always done his best and captained us for the first time today.

 

thanks......

The question is who else??

 

None of the other back 4 or keeper 

 

Lee? Nope

FF?? Da Cruz?? Harris?? Nope 

Nuhiu?? Nope 
 

JP is the only one that would be close to it

That’s my point 

 

We have no leadership anywhere in the club

Exactly.   Not a leader on the pitch and we haven’t had since Loovens.  There is no wonder Bruce said it would take a number if windows to sort out.  But hey, on we go blaming the next poor sucker who inherits these underachievers

Didn't do any worse than Tom Lees anyway.
