Just been listening to radio.

 

New manager comes in at Barnsley.

 

8 clean sheets in last 14 games!

 

This is a team that have been in bottom 3 all season.

 

But he's managed to get them defensively organised!

 

What has Monk done on training pitch with them!

 

If Barnsley manager can do it with Barnsley's players, why can't Monk do it with ours?

 

This 100%

 

Monk constantly falls back on how the players are making mistakes.  It just doesn't wash with me, at all.

 

There is just no excuse for the consistency of poor performances, constant inability to see out a game, to constantly have slow starts.

 

Monk , in essence, is now 100% relying on every single player coming in to hit the ground running, to perform week in week out and not make mistakes - or we'll be back in exactly the same position as we have been with the current bunch who he blames for everything.

 

Does he have a plan? Has he shown despite the results that he has a methodology that we can see what he's trying to achieve? Or is he simply muddling around hoping something sticks?

 

It's very true that there has been a dangerous culture at the club for a couple of seasons now. Some players have let themselves down.  Too many are dangerously overpaid and under motivated which can be toxic. 

 

But you have to take a step back and question why he wasnt able to get players to play for him. Especially players who HAVE been able to perform under different managers. 

 

For me, I just dont think he's the man for the job. Many of the players have left, as intended  Let this transition happen under a different man with fresh ideas.

Stark reality, we either get someone in who understands the game and players, or we stick with this bullshitter and end up in league1 or even 2. I've no confidence in this bloke to run a programme stand, let alone the team. 

 

An abject waste of space, wage stealing, bullshitting, egotistical pile of crap.

 

Jos was like Mourhinio compared to this fella.

i said before the game yesterday that in reality he should be gone today or tomorrow.  Despite the issues with the squad that he might have inherited the results since Christmas haven’t been good enough or acceptable. 
 

Will Chansiri do the right thing today? I hope so, but expect he will release a statement that will depress most Owls fans.

Chansiri will probably do it just to pee us off.

What did you say to the players in the dressing room afterwards?

 

GM: I thank everyone for their efforts. It has not been down to a question of effort.

 

 

So he's blind as well as fekkin useless.

I’m flabbergasted he told the players this, more so that he mentioned it in an interview😳

Monk came into a very difficult job when Bruce left suddenly. I think everyone agrees that. He did well until Christmas, mainly because Fletcher was very good as a focal point and the others played around him. For whatever reason the wheels came off at Stoke and the rest has been dire.

 

If Bruce had stayed we would have challenged for play-offs.

Under a proper manager like Pearson or McCarthy (or even Warnock god forbid) we would have been competitive.

Before and since lockdown we have simply been poor. Last night under one of these proper managers we would have beaten Boro who were there for the taking.

 

i have a bit of sympathy for Monk for what he inherited but, given our terrible second half of the season, we can't trust him for the rebuild. We need a proven operator.

I fully expect he will be gone within the next 48hrs.

Personally I wouldn't give him 48 minutes.

So true, I’ve got a horrible feeling we’ll see a statement later from him saying he’s “committed as ever to make us a success and will work with Monk to build a side we can be proud of but it won’t be easy.”  Yayyy

Sounds like he's here to stay with some of his comments 😬

 

He is until told otherwise. It’s down to the Chairman now?

 

The disconnect between him and the players is clear to see. Players seemingly saying goodbye publicly to Nuhiu but Monk saying otherwise? He realises that there is a disconnect with the fans but he’s living in cloud cuckoo land if he thinks he’ll ever reconnect there?

 

In my experience as a fan here no manager has ever turned it around from the position the current manager finds himself in. Every word he utters, every decision he makes is ridiculed by the fan base. The only thing that has saved him up to now is the pandemic and the subsequent resumption behind closed doors?

 

If football had operated as normal he wouldn’t have seen the last 6 games IMO?

I honestly think that ship has sailed mate. After a terrible season plus the pandemic, money will become tighter than ever for a lot of people. People have found other things to spend money on. Plus keeping Monk will have an effect on sales.

Comments of a desperate man. He has to be sacked for the good of this great football club. Today. 

But we all know DC likes to back a failing manager.

I genuinely can't figure why anyone would want to keep him as manager. His track record before joining us hardly inspired confidence (Swansea fans loathed him by the end) and I have literally nothing in terms of organisation, tactics, or motivation that makes me think he is right for us.

 

There have been managers who have gone before (Lawes, Megson, Carvalhal, even Jones) where they have come to the end of the road but you can see real positives. Monk....just nothing.

 

Yes, the problems at the club run deeper, but this perseverance with a broken manager is actually a symptom of those deeper problems. Indecision and a reluctance by the chair to admit to problems, or that past decisions haven't worked out. 

 

Who instead? No idea. Ok, the Cowleys. I would far sooner have them.
