Dean Holden Post Match

Saying something but then saying I am not using that as an excuse!

To be fair the injuries are ridiculous. Towler being 6th choice left wing back for example.

But even with the terrible amount of injuries I expect a team to have some kind of cohesion. On and off the ball clueless.

We have injuries no doubting that , but we could have acted for LB or LWB cover, and defensively we’re short. However , we had Nagy , Palmer, Bakinson & Marippa on the bench today, we have options but seem unable to find a work around (I haven’t included Wells as clearly doesn’t want to be here)

Because there's only one man in the world who would appoint any of them! SL is dangerously stupid. 

Could say the same about Woodgate- at Middlesbrough though he's holding the fort at Bournemouth, Tindall? Bowen at Reading?

Probably more if we look further and wider.

He's gone. If not tonight, it won't be long. That is the face of a man who knows it's all over. 

Dead man walking. 

It was, no answers at all. 

Not good enough ? No shit.

 

Hard work, look in the mirror, we go again.

But no actual insight into how to improve, what we need to do and how to implement it. Everyone who read the team sheet at 2pm could see that the midfield was wrong, Lansbury holding was wrong, and Moore at LCB with Towler at LWB was going to be exposed. Surely one of the 3 coaches could see that?

I think we are well past which players should be playing here and which should be playing there....it doesn't matter and makes no difference. 

Nothing will improve until we get a quality manager in to sort out this embarrassing mess of a team.

Genuine question - can we expect the team to have any sort of cohesion when the coaching staff have had so little time on the training ground in between games to work with the squad, players returning from injury and of course the academy players integrating into the first team part way through a season? 

I just really feel for him. The ridiculous injury count plus the uniqueness of the season in terms of frequency of games has made his position next to impossible imo

I agree , but we can’t keep hearing injuries as an argument. The only position we’re genuinely short at is LB / LWB. 

We currently have no structure , style or identity but people use injuries as an excuse.

Why is it that many other teams have cohesion?

Dean Holden was a more or less unknown member of LJs coaching team. No track record with City fans at all...compared to Jamie Mac. 

Personally, having been given the boot myself in the past, I'm sympathetic to anyone in this position. But I barely know Holden.

Absolutely, his interviews are entirely free of any insight at all. Personally I find his cliche ridden platitudes as irksome as LJ's jargon.

An uninspiring character. I find it hard to imagine him communicating tactical insight to the players or motivating them at all.

Way out of his depth and needs to be cut loose as soon as possible.

The fact he said he isn’t a quitter a few times, says he deffo isn’t gonna walk !! And as upset as he was with the performance I don’t think he acted like he was someone worried for his job either ...

He could always jack it in 

I don’t believe he will. He’s had to suffer huge tragedy in his personal life which would’ve given him enormous resolve and resilience.

I don’t believe him resigning is realistic at all. He will do everything he can to improve our position, I just don’t think it’ll be enough.
