Yes it is


come on - be honest

It would be speculation without any circumstantial evidence, but we have some facts to go on. Therefore, it's an educated guess/opinion.

I thought it was a bad idea to bring him back - I was wrong.


Like so many others. Easy maybe for fans to say but Players should only be judged on their performances, regardless of what may or may not be happening behind the scenes.

You don't have ANY facts about what's happened in the changing room or during training etc


So it's a total fabrication - not any sort of 'educated guess'

Agreed.  

 

As much as I didn't like Monk, I was actually starting to warm to him, especially after that performance against Leeds. Then as soon as Monk started banishing players from the first team, I knew there and then it was the beginning of the end for him.  

 

As you say, he could have kept Hutchinson in and around the team until the end of the season when his contract expired, but to do that mid season was absolute madness. 

Plenty on here agreed with him though. Thought it was the right thing to do to banish him and Westwood. Never play for the team again. Bad eggs etc etc.

Been a big factor in our improved recent form. No surprise as he always makes us a much stronger team when on the pitch.

Welcome back Hutch, he must be enjoying his return so far.

Yes, well done Westwood and Hutch.

 

Many of us wanted the inept Monk gone and not you two.

 

Monk hould have gone last March after the total surrender at Brentford  but indecision let it drift on.

Did both Jos and Monk stop playing them? YES

Are they both better than their replacements? YES

Is it prove by results their absence was to the detriment of the team / results? YES

Did other managers get them on the pitch and contributing? YES

Are they both known to me more vocal/larger characters than your average squad member? YES

 

From the facts above, I can take an educated guess that they both struggled to manage Westwood and Hutch.

 

Not sure why you're struggling with this Think you're just being pedantic and stubborn now.

Like Roy Keane?


Kind of, put i think Keane should be a cautionary tale for him - he never learnt to accept those with lower standards

 

If he had, I think he could have been a wonderful manager

Exactly the kind of assumption Mr Owlstalk is referring to.


We don’t know either way what happened. But given their impact on the team performance and the fact they have been brought back into the fold twice now it is a very strange situation.

 

What I do hope is that people will quit sniping at them, indulging in myths about them and appreciate the impact they are making on the pitch which is extremely  positive.

 

 


Well said mate

Proper simple tho. Hutchinson wouldn't have not been allowed to resign and play for us

if he had been a "bad egg" with his previous stint with us, surely.

 

It's quick maths to me.

 

The reason they didn't get picked before is pure football reasons, there's no facts at all to say otherwise.

Bad judgement by previous managers sure but I think thats all it is.

Monk was a fk ing idiot 

 

To be fair to him, he still will be.   Just one that's not currently employed.

 

Still wouldn't mind being a bob or two behind him though.

I agree with this that I've quoted - but I have another slant.

 

I am pretty sure Jos thought he'd be in the job longer and be able to get better results, and because of that he had one eye on letting the older players, or at least some with perhaps a sell by date approaching faster than others fester on the sidelines with a view to bringing on younger players 

 

Just think he got the mix totally wrong and was too defensive minded which got the fans on his back faster than if he had played attacking football but still got the same results.

This is all it is, his face didn't fit.

Obviously easy to say Monk and Jos got it wrong now but it was for football reasons alone.

Hutchinson already said this in an interview...

I'd agree, the monumental turnaround in our form is no coincidence to Huch returning.

 

Both on and off the pitch

 

Agree 1,000,000x

I was super sceptical with the signing, so far it's a masterstroke.

@Salmonbones yeah....

when I put his face didn't fit it was towards

 

"I am pretty sure Jos thought he'd be in the job longer and be able to get better results, and because of that he had one eye on letting the older players, or at least some with perhaps a sell by date approaching faster than others fester on the sidelines with a view to bringing on younger players

Jos was totally going for a younger overhaul, Hutch face didn't fit in what he was trying to do

 

The rest of my post wasn't towards your comment, no biggie

The written word sometimes comes across bad.  

 

My apologies.
