Lions Led By Charlatans.
This site has been saying for some time that there was an enormous rebuild ahead,with an entire team needing signed-either as first team ready or as back up. The early weeks of the transfer window were spectacularly uninspiring,but we have certainly upped the ante in the last fortnight.
There is no doubt that the signings yesterday of Hart and McCarthy are a recognition that projects are not the answer,not in the here and now. These guys ARE the here and now,and I’m getting slightly more hopeful-although I believe there is still a long way to go. As we all know.
We are in real trouble here,folks. It is plain for everyone to see. There was a ramping up of the refereeing last season to Stop The Ten-although,as it turned out,it was hardly necessary. There will clearly,from Saturday’s evidence,be a further ramping up due to the automatic place in the CL next season.
Although it too hardly looks to be necessary,does it?
We are a shambles on and off the pitch at the moment. I have no idea why AP decided to leave out our best two performers in midweek,the centre backs,to play a recent arrival and a proven failure. I have no idea either why he continues with one up front when that one up front canny be arsed. I mean,look at that header,bouncing off his head to Gordon,bugger me backwards.
It is easy to complain about our midfield,I get that. But they know that they are meant to be the providers-but to whom? That means they have to take the responsibility for the goals onto their own shoulders. And that too often means that they are caught out of position-which means that they can’t do their other job. The one of protecting the defence.
And bloody hell,does our defence need protecting !!!
We are in deep shit,and we know where the blame lies. This will not be a simple fix,this is us thirty years ago-but without even the same quality of players,and we had some real quality even then. And we can’t blame AP and Dom when the quick fix doesn’t arrive,we simply can’t afford to chop and change. They need time,and they need support. From us,and from the board.
And also from the players.
In fairness,most of the players on Saturday gave their all. The usual suspects did not,so no surprise. AP will know by now who he can trust.
On and off the pitch.
SOLKITTS said the other night that it’s gonna be a long season. He’s not wrong-except I think there may be more than one. I pointed out last week that Rome wasn’t built in a day-but it burnt down in one night.
That is what we are dealing with here,what AP and Dom are having to turn around.
What a legacy to leave for “a well run club” and “a Champions League club”
Lions led by charlatans,indeed.
