  1. It was much better - but people need to remember that we’ll need a quite significant improvement in results. Over the last 20 games, discounting the Shrewsbury cup games, we’ve only picked up 7 wins. The squad is capable, but I feel Saturday really needs to have been the turning point.

    I’m by no means his biggest fan but he’s spent a lot of time out wide in recent games. He’s always been far more effective playing more centrally IMO.
  3. At least we appeared to have some structure about us today and a bit of a game plan. Wells leading the line makes a difference, he presses more and has a decent first touch. As much as I like Diedhiou, he stands off too much. Massengo was frustrating again, wants far too much time. Always getting out muscled and never able to recover because of his lack of pace. There is a player there I’m sure but he’s finding it tough at the moment. Some decent performances too. Kalas getting better by the week and Benkovic looked better than has. Thought Maenpaa, Smith and Wells were reasonable too.

    Loose first touch I thought but much better than he has been, which isn’t too difficult tbf.
  5. It's part and parcel of many environments isn't it, not just football. Part of me hopes there has been a falling out because it means that..... 1. There is an acceptance that performances have not been good enough 2. They care. Because if they didn't care, they probably wouldn't be falling out.

    I like him, not good enough for a team with Promotion aspirations but I still thought he was decent enough. A better footballer than I thought he would be and he used to really get under the skin of the opposition which I loved seeing. Good luck to him, Oxford seems a really good fit.
  8. He also played 90 against Shrewsbury in the cup and was the only decent performer that day. Nahki Wells?
  9. - He calls players out too often in interviews when things go wrong. - All to often, if a player has one or two bad games, they seem to disappear for weeks. - He often takes credit for things when they go well e.g - "I told him to do that in training and now its paid off" Just give the player full credit. I haven't gone into what ex players have said because I always believe there are two sides to every story but there's not usually smoke without fire. I would say all of the above are bad management traits, and if that's how it is in public, it's difficult to imagine it will be any different behind closed doors. Just my opinion on why his man management leaves a lot to be desired......
  10. Obviously quite a few managers I'd like us to get but trying to be realistic...…. Sensible and fairly experienced choices: Alex Neil at PNE, Warburton at QPR or Paul Cook at Wigan - done a good job on a rubbish budget, play some decent football, been unlucky this season and I think they'll stay up. Young up and coming/inexperienced choice: Always think Liam Rosenior comes across really well and I think he'll go on to be a good manager.
  11. No I don’t think so. Massengo and Nagy are both of the right calibre to play for us and be successful IMO. I agree they have underperformed, of course they have, but so have so many of our team. And that’s the point I’m making. Not many of our players have done themselves justice this season or performed at the level they are capable of. And I put that down to the way they and the team have been managed. Just my opinion though.
  12. Well they looked decent enough in there first few appearances. Perhaps players find it difficult to adapt to constant changing of system, changing of personnel, roles, in the team, out of the team. Then confidence becomes shot and we all know just how big a factor confidence is in football. for all the players who have supposedly improved under LJ, there are equally as many, if not more that you could argue have regressed under his “management”.
  13. Not half as embarrassing as the arrogance of others.
  14. Luckily for us we prefer the ball in the air!!
