Back to The Future
« on: October 18, 2020, 08:35:55 PM »
The results are nowhere good enough at the moment,but should we expect anything different from the current squad?Culverhouse has remained loyal to his players with the majority of the  players from last season still with the Club.
If the last 5 results from the 19/20 season,when we played at a lower level,are compared to the 5 results we have played this season then it could be that our current league position shows a more realistic picture than when we were promoted by default as Champions.
If the 5 results we have had this season had been played as part of the curtailed 19/20 season,then far from winning the title we would have missed the play offs!

Last 5 games from last season  4 points from 15.
First 5 games from this season   4 points from 15.

I don't think there's a lot to argue with on this one.

With the current squad,Henderson leaving is a massive lost.The additions of King,Brown and Loza only gives us players of similar quality as we already have.Playing at a higher level means you need better players than the previous season to be able to compete.More of the same just won't cut it.
Messing around with the goalkeepers position has left me completely bemused and has no doubt caused concern amongst a shakey defence thats playing at the extremes of their ability.If on the one hand the squad is tight and all one unit and fighting for each other,how does that make the other players feel when they see the ever present and consistent Alex Street being dropped for reasons unbeknown to everyone other than Culverhouse,Back,Bastock and Cleeve.No disrespect meant to any of the players named,I'm just trying to bring matters into context.
Previously its been the case of congratulations for all the great work that's been done on the playing side of the Club with supporters hoping that the non playing side would start to catch up.The on field success is now history.The non playing side shows no sign of improving or even wanting to improve.Communication appears at an all time low.
Cleeve must take credit,or maybe that should be responsibilty,for getting the Club to it's current position.It's no secret how that has been achieved.If he is not in a position to continue to play exactly the same role within the Cub as he has in previous seasons this can only go one way.
It's so easy to blame the Pandemic,The Government,The NL,The FA,The EFL,The PL.The hard fact is that what we are now experiencing at the Club has its origins long before any current crisis,but the picture has only recently come into focus for many of the Clubs supporters.
