I’ve seen it mentioned on Facebook (I know) that it’s exactly a year ago today that we last went in for HT at home ahead.

No idea if it’s true or even been posted already

Our home form is atrocious. Away from home we look decent. If we don't start winning at home, our home form; lack of goals, inability to kill teams off and conceding of late goals could be our undoing this season. Some of the home games this season have been a slight improvement or closer, yet we're still winless. In our situation being still in negative points, we can ill afford to play so negatively at home or to have such a weak home record. Draws will kill us, especially at home, we should go for it more at home and play 4-3-3 or something similar at home and 3-5-2 away from home.

That’s also the only time we have led at Hillsborough at HT in Monk’s entire tenure.

Exactly, we cannot afford to rely on away games to pick up the points We are much improved away from home, but hardly sweeping all before us Although it’s not my cup of tea, if you’re gonna recruit players whose attributes are all about how horrible they are to play against, then get in opponents faces Go at sides from the off, test them out by getting in amongst them 

If it doesn’t work, at least you’ve given it a go. Why bring in those type of players and then start of in such a passive fashion It doesn’t make sense

This home record is a stick to beat Monk with. How can it not be? We don’t improve this record quickly, we’re down. Simple as that. 

 

Interesting that one one or two poor stats when Monk was supposedly conquering all before him are starting to emerge?

Brings back memories of the 1974/75 season all over again.

I've just had a look at our Home results for that season and we dint win for 11 games from Dec 74 through to Sep 75 ( 2nd home game of the 75/76 season) .

We have now gone 9 games without winning at Home , Charlton in February, so 2 more winless games and we equal that run.

Unless anyone knows any better I'd say this is as bad as it's been in my living memory , I'm 56 btw !

An amazing statistic shows his tactics/management isn't working at Hillsborough.

We're still bedding in a whole new coaching staff, a brand new squad etc?

I know a wins a win and all that but if hadn't been for Fletchers late, late goal against Charlton we would have been adding another 7 games onto that winless home run.

Yes 1 win in the last 15 at Hillsborough !

I reckon this has got to be the poorest form we've ever had at Home in living memory

The thing is .. and its tough for a lot to swallow .. a lot of fans, myself included

 

But this current form, this turgid style, this grinding out games is indicative of what Monk did with Birmingham and under very similar circumstances, refreshed a bloated squad, debts, points deduction etc.

 

Its all just to get us to safety. We can't expect amazing football and pumping teams week in week out. Monk will just do enough and it's not gonna be pretty.

 

We're gonna be languishing around mid to bottom table and we have to either accept that or ... well what else can we do apart from moaning about it and want change (then who knows what will happen)

 

The football isn't the problem, the results are.

 

The football was bob under Gray, but he delivered the points.

 

He saved us from certain relegation, whereas under Monk we're going down.

I’m not going to argue because there is a case to say that.

 

Personally I don’t buy into the new players excuse much because he’s still relying on a fair few that were responsible for the failures of last season?

 

He’s talked about having players available for 40 games or more yet he brings in Brown who has a track record for being injured and lo and behold he’s missed half of our championship games already.

 

He won’t get a full season out of Luongo. Does he bring in a decent understudy? No he re-signs Pelupessy then picks a young playmaker ahead of him first time he’s missing.

 

He wants to play 3-5-2. Most of us know we haven’t got the players to play wing-back. Does he go out and get one or two? No. He brings in 2 more centre-backs and re-calls Van Aken.

 

He also continually picks a keeper who is non-league standard at best. Even opposition players know our keeper is a weak link. We know he is but we all know who doesn’t?

 

If he keeps us up he’s done a good job. No doubt about that but he doesn’t mean he’s the right man for the long term? I think the current home run tells you everything you need to know about Monk. He doesn’t have a clue on how to get on the front foot and the situation we’re currently in requires us to do this more often than not?
