At my age I can get the same effect just by standing up too fast.

Listening to the interview it seems that is a lot of issues all coming into play thatís caused all
Our issues.

Hughes.... players not fit poor recruitment

Cleeve .....off field issues

Ground staff.... pitch not up to it

Players...... not enough experience/ letting him down.

Club......  being full time is now an issue.

What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

Have to say that the article seems a very one sided view of our current situation and much as I don't blame AL for everything you might hope for a more balanced article from an established journalist. 

Where AL is talking about "...we're trying to find different ways to get points.", you could equally point to a pretty mixed message in terms of team shape and makeup meaning players possibly don't know what their role is from one game to the next or how we are meant to attack or defend as a team

Also, I just wish he would stop with the fitness thing, maybe we were unfit, maybe we weren't but surely by now as professionals they should be 'fit enough' and the bulk of the contact time with players should be working on shape and ball work rather than just more and more running?  Trotting out that players are 'running their socks off' for him really isn't much to crow about when talking about full-time players.  Maybe someone should show AL a video or two of the football IC's part-time players managed to produce and I would bet that as a side they had lower 'stats' than our current crop but the old saying of 'letting the ball do the work' has maybe never been more applicable.

As for more new signings, at some point SC will have to ask himself if we are genuinely adding quality or are we just changing names on the backs of shirts for the sake of it.  Not saying that is true of all the recent additions and very hard to judge anyone based on Tuesday night but sometimes you are better getting the best out of what you have rather than disrupt things further.

If his team had been as defensive as that article they wouldn't have let 4 goals in on Tuesday night! :banghead;

Never had the pitch looking this good at the end of January and with all the rain

Have to agree with you the pitch is the best i have seen it for a long time and played true. Think it is time for AL to take a look at himself and consider what he is doing wrong and what he needs to do to put thigs right.
