Were Roma second bottom and utter fucking dogshit though


I don’t know, should he only be given a head coaching job at a team in precisely the same circumstances as his previous job? What sort of reasoning is that? 
 

If he’s got enough about him he’ll set the team up for success based on what he’s got to work with. We’ll find that out soon enough if he’s appointed. The club are interviewing multiple candidates, these things will be discussed I’m sure.

We need to get someone in who can organise what we have and to stop shipping goals. This season is all about staying up, get a centre half, central midfielder and goal scorer in January and hopefully survive.

 

If we keep shipping goals nothing will really change, we’re just not going to start winning games 3-2, 4-3. We need a Rafa type manager, no point in getting in an adventurous manager and getting spanked early on. We’ll be adrift in no time.

This is my worry too, January is going to be so huge in our season and who we buy or don’t.

Imo we get the manager we want to achieve the progress we desire. No good looking for a short term appointment who they think might keep us up then end up having to stick with him until he doesn’t achieve the aim we have then we have to sack him mid term next season and start all over again. Start at the top and aim high straight away.

We’re letting in far too many easy goals. If we do go for an attack minded manager they’re going to have to reign that in for the rest of this season. Get organised at the back and play on the counter attack, keep Wilson and ASM fit.

I suppose this is what 14 years of Ashley and two and a bit of the lard monster has done to us

 

After watching the doco on PF at Shaktar it obvious he is meticulous in his approach and would tweak what we have to improve performances and fitness levels (the early stages of games have proved we can actually play a bit….but fitness is shot)…..I am astounded that some are saying maybe we shouldn’t  aim high yet as we need to survive….shit let’s get another PFM relegation battler in then….err no fuck that!

 

Look what Rafa achieved when we got Rondon/Migs in (small changes : big improvement) and WE WILL spend in January and PF will get us playing a game that will win games, if the players can’t do this then they have two months to adapt or they will be on the Bruce highway. If it fails then the plan is put back one year, the media and others will gloat….but they will know that our day is coming

 

in PF we trust 🤗

I’m all in for Fonseca. Improving ball retention can take the pressure off of our defence for long periods in games.  Buy him a new spine of the team in January and he keeps us up no problem.

This is the thing, we are so bad defensively because we literally cannot keep hold of the ball for more than 2 passes, and so the opposition always have so much possession they just end up bullying us the whole game and pushing us further and further back.

 

We also cannot ever press the other team for more than 5 mins in a match it seems before we then just end up standing there watching them will they pass the ball comfortably and drift around us like it's a training session for them.

 

These are our two biggest issues regarding our defensive problems, rather than a general inability to defend, and so we really need someone that is going to encourage and organise the team to both press the opposition more, and do far more with the ball when we have it. Both would make a huge difference.

I’m of the KK school of you defend first by attacking… 

He does play attacking football but its not like the defence is unorganised. Its highly organised and requires a lot of coaching of the centre backs to make it work. The centre backs are probably the most important players in his system.

Fonseca game is short accurate passes with speed how many of our current players have this in them,

the Portuguese players have this gift in abundance. he had six Portuguese players in his team,

when shakhtar beat Manchester City in the Champions League in 2017.

 I can see us going straight in for at least one new CB in Jan if he comes in.

People need to remember this. 

 

I'm calm and relaxed now that Bruce has gone. It was the one thing that needed to happen right off the bat. There was far too much poison and vitriol around him and keeping him as long as we did was pointless and only added fuel to the fire. Especially as it looks like we don't have a direct replacement ready to step in, so keeping him on for those 12 days seems a little baffling.  Anyway, the fucker is gone now, so it's full steam ahead.
