Neil Thompson's post-Luton reaction


Recommended Posts

Thompson should now know the following are not good enough and should be nowhere near a matchday squad;

Palmer

Wildsmith

Dunkley

Reach

Penney

 

Seems like we will have to persevere with Wildsmith in the short term, can the phsios strap Westwood up? Had he played today we don't concede 3 goals

The threads about the post LUTON reaction.....  not the season. There are hundreds of threads on how hated Chansiri and Paxo are.

Yet, you try and stay on topic and discuss THIS game...and all of a sudden all phooking hell breaks loose.

Love this forum lol

we know the mess we are in comes from the top but surely everyone involved today and in other games should be accountable. Thomson with his team selections, tactics and substitutions, the players certainly with their lack of commitment and playing to the best of their ability but what baffles me is surely Bullen having been in the position himself and having worked with these players on a daily basis up to last season should be able to help Thomson out more than he appears to do

doing a job he never applied for with coaches he didn’t select. A bit like Bullen I feel he cares more than most and yet he’s judged at same standards of people that applied, were selected, were paid more, were better assisted. 
 

 

I don't think Thompson is up to it, he should step down and tell DC he can't get the job done with these players and that we are effectively relegated already.

 

I don't think there are more than 2 or 3 managers who could save us. Colin is one but the fans wouldn't have him. McCarthy might,  Pearson might but neither are available. None of the 3 would work under DC.

 

I don't blame Thompson for his failure, he's done his best but the squad is rotten to the core. Thompson has been forced into the job and he's been brave enough to try to help in our hour of need.

 

While ever there is a mathematical chance of survival fans will hope.but in our heart of hearts I think the majority now accept the situation.

What specifically is Bullen not doing/doing wrong in the work he's doing with Thompson or what he's saying to him?

Trouble is now he keeps making them. He’s being exposed sadly. 

Exposed for what exactly! He's ******** youth team coach! Is he being exposed as not a manager, well whoop did ******** do. What a surprise! He isn't a frigging manager. Never has been. Never will be. He's NOT asked for the job! I'm fuming with the amount of people who keep writing this poo . Yes he's making mistakes. You would make mistakes. I would make mistakes. We frigging might well try not to. The bloke has been sold well short to put it mildly. Sick of this club and even more sick of the ******** that have a go things beyond the control of a man who is probably simply like me and you doing all he can.

This is what I don’t get. A few times today I saw the 3 of them barking instructions. I mean collectively surely they have enough to know our best players and the best formations for them? What makes it even easier for them is they’re not even technical players. Just play to their bloody strengths!!

I don’t blame Thompson one bit for our demise. 

No-one is.
Just at 2 - 0 up at half time. It proved he could get it right, and then, change of shape and panic decisions. And we lost THIS game.

He can't say much can he - he's not a manager; the rest of the management team aren't up to it. They've been thrown to the wolfs by DC on a cheap option.

 

The players DC's assembled are like him, mentality weak and general absent when it matters.

 

6 years of DC and we are a empty shell of desperation and apathy across the club. 

He probably was looking for a new manager in January then Thompson went and won 5 out of 7 so he thought ‘oh might as well leave it now and it will save me some money’. Now it’s gone wrong there’s not enough time to make a difference

So you'd agree Hutch was knackered

You’d have to ask him, I’ve no idea if he was knackered.

 

I thought, initially, he was injured in our penalty area when they scored, replays suggest he wasn’t. So what do I know.

But you said you'd watched the game ?  It was clear to everyone he was. His play was slow, laboured, he was making mistakes and his passes were going astray  as well as his tackles.   he should have clearly been substituted.  And this is the thing, we all realise how and why it's come to this. But honest and real mistakes being made by any of the stand in staff are now protected under an understandable  CHANSIRI OUT melting pot.

Changes made today at half time and after conceding weren't the best. And to say that wouldn't be wrong.

it doesn't mean I or anyone else is kicking Neil Thompson who has done a superb job after being thrown in at the deep end.
It just means things were wrong TODAY and then only the second half... that's the annoying thing.
