Chickens coming home to roost

Chickens coming home to roost

Post  cyprussyd on 2018-01-13, 9:49 pm

Today in Wales we all watched,listened or became aware of years of mismanagement coming home to roost in a big way and if Coleman had any doubts about the job in hand it was laid out in front of him in a clear way.

I find it hard to blame the players and certainly cant blame the manager, the blame goes back,IMO to the day Short decided to replace Quinn with football advisors who could only give bad advice. De Fanti found bad footballers and our then CEO gave them ridiculous contracts. Managers came and left leaving more underperforming players and a core of senior professionals who saw managers off.

Today we started with probably the only team Coleman could put out, a defence held together by a player who was never meant to be a regular starter in John O'Shea. A midfield made up of Wilson, a centre back who is not good enough to be a centre back. NDong who wants out and kids who we are in danger of ruining.

The sad thing is that I think we finally have the manager who can solve the problem and lead us back to respectability but he is being forced to do it with both hands tied behind his back.

So I understand the anger, depression why many are walking away. The future may well get worse before it gets better but all I can do is hope.

Hope that we can get the strikers in who can give us the muscle needed, a mid field creator who can rule midfield and above everything get some confidence into the team.

I dont expect Short to spend so no long term plan, just a simple plan to keep us up.

The only person who can help in the short term is short himself by spending at lease a couple of million to get us out of the mess he has caused surely the thick skinned arrogant yank can see that

The only problem with our current players is they are not big enough, not fast enough, not strong enough, they struggle to control and pass a ball, tend to be only one footed and cannot shoot or head the ball very well.

Despite these shortcomings they are paid more in a week than the supporters earn in a year.

An influx of quality players is unlikely but we can hope at least till the window closes.

This with knobs on.
I've been saying all season we are far too small & lightweight.

Fair points syd and agree with most of it although some have been saying the players we have brought in just weren’t good enough from day one.
Not sure if Robson was injured today but as a CM he had to be a better shout than a CB in midfield. Having said that I think we would still be beaten as the team as a whole is just not good enough. Too many loanees who don’t do the business too many old crocks who are still playing and far too many players who would struggle in League 1 never mind the fizzy pop league. As you say Short out is the only answer but, that does not guarantee instant success as we are that far gone. Coleman is still IMO not the man to get us sorted out far too naive with his tactics. Tactics which pan out at International level do not work at club level where you play twice a week.
Will we survive? that is the big question personally I think we can pull out of it only just mind.

I looked at the players coming out of the tunnel and they in the most were much smaller than Cardiff players
