The last 26 games now in all competitive games where we’ve conceded 1st….we’ve lost, the last time we came back from going a goal down was December 2019 vs Brentford

And since that same date (Dec 2019), we’ve dropped 38 points from winning positions

So in summary, we're not very good if the opponents score first and we're not very good if we score first! Sounds promising.

Not surprised, we are mentally weak and cave whenever the pressure is lifted even a slight bit. No leaders in the team from the board room, all the way down to the players on the pitch. A ship without a captain.  Completely rudderless.

A lot of people said earlier in the season, when we were top, , lets see how good we are, when we lose a couple of games.

Well now we know.

Those stats are absolutely appaling. How can several lots of teams representing SW be so mentally weak?!?

These aren’t good stats granted but what it shows is that the problems we are seeing now aren’t new ones and have been around for a long time.

 

Some will say it’s the Chairman’s fault, others will blame the manager and then the players cop the flak from the rest.

 

Some are saying the ship is rudderless. This should be sorted from the top so criticism of the Chairman is understandable. He’s in some way setting the tone with his apparent lack of leadership? He’s gone to ground but if he popped his head above the parapet to say his piece, history shows that this usually goes down well with the fan base? Haven’t a lot of fans said he should stay in the background and let others run the show? He does this, he still cops it. He’s in a thankless position and let’s face it some fans won’t be happy until he sells up?

 

The Manager. He’s struggling. Despite the overhaul of the squad of players in the summer to fit his particular system, the same old problems we had to towards the end of CC’s reign and subsequently the reigns of JL, SB, GM

and TP remain. Ponderous play, a lack of a goalscoring threat and a mixed bag of defensive strength and an apparent inability to nail down their strongest eleven. How does this get solved? I couldn’t say with any certainty. Perhaps their needs to be more churn in the playing squad before this changes and this season is going to be a season of consolidation which the first season back at League 1 level invariably is?

 

But we won’t have that as a fan base and I still believe we are a big part of the problem. 2 decades in the EFL have made us angry, bitter, and jealous of other clubs particularly elsewhere in the region? If we have learned anything from

this period is that there are no such thing as a quick fix to our problems.

 

We need to build from the bottom up and we need a manager who is prepared to work hard and do this. I think

we already have one. Will he get the time? Probably not and the Circus will probably continue to have more clowns than other more notable acts at the forefront of the show?

 

Will it ever change for the better? Maybe but it’s going to take a while, hard work and more than a bit of luck.

Because all the managers have had us playing defensive minded negative football ever since Carlos' second season.

Hard to turn games around when the team is drilled to just keep the opposition out.

Good managers get teams promoted by scoring goals and showing zero respect to the opponent.

Leeds and the blunts got through just as many managers as us until they finally found the winning scratch card.

Time for us to try again.
