Don't believe the negative hype!

We have a good team in the making. Still learning, still getting to know how to get the best out of themselves, still developing. 

Don't believe the nonsense spoken about players not being good enough either or not as good as last year or the year before, because apart from Maddison who was always going to be sold, we have some very good players.   Name me one poor performer from Sunday - Krul? No. Klose? Hanley? No. Lewis, Aarons? No.  Leitner? No - a mixed bag but some quality through balls and a goal.  Tettey? No. Pukki? Looked good in spells but wasn't poor overall. Hernandez?  Always capable of causing trouble and his play set up the goal. Rhodes - always works hard even when things aren't going for him.  Buendia showed his inexperience, but anyone can see he has potential. 

So overall, the season moves on, a difficult start with a whole new front to the team and getting the youngsters involved. The whole club from top to bottom is healthy financially, healthy on the football coaching side, healthy with good players - and with a plan and the determination to see it succeed.

So don't believe the negative hype. It is just that - negative and hype.

After the note to Daniel maybe one to the players is necessary?

It's the fun part of his trolling how many times he says the same thing over and over and over again

You'd know all about trolling of course, being the expert you are at it.

Re: Don't believe the negative hype!

This thread has no credence because Lakey says the same s*** with every manager, player, season, scenario etc etc.

Wishing and hoping it’ll get better will not magically make it so.

And in many of the situations where these lectures have cropped up, we’ve gone on to be relegated, the manager sacked etc.

The theme of this was probably the same last season and there was hardly any improvement, concluding in a 5-1 hammering at Sheffield Wednesday.

Sometimes you have to accept things aren’t going to improve; it’s my believe Farke is not getting the best out of this squad and we’re in for a season of struggle. This isn’t me being negative or moaning for the sake of it (as many other posters label it when the club, players, coach etc are being criticised); it’s based on what I’ve seen with my own eyes during the Farke era.

Now Lakey, about this two week break you were talking about in another one of your threads.

Dammit, take the whole of September off!

Exactly this. I feel like nephew Tom could appoint himself manager and LDC would tell us how great an idea it is. There are some on here who have an unflinching position that whatever the club is doing at any one time is the correct thing.

It'll take a nation of millions to hold him back.

So no one played poorly but we were still only able to draw against the team with the worst start to the season in the entire league. And only manage two shots on target in 90 minutes against them.

Blimey, how bad is it going to get when some of them do have an off day?!

Yep, good idea.  Trying to balance out all the negativity on here with a bit of realism is a bit tedious, but someone has to do it! Probably feels more so as I've actually been to a few games this season and seen and heard the ridiculous booing and the chants for myself  - and how social media tends towards the negative at the expense of reality.  

Truth is a football club is always a work in progress and to answer Hoolahansolo - imo Hughton needed the three years to re-develop the club and simply the task of staying in the premier league and doing that was too big. Neil - again imo - would have seen through a clear out successfully and rebuilt along the lines we have done with youth a key part - something he was strong with at Hamilton - and in the two and a half years he had with us, he was under huge pressure to either stay in the PL or get promoted so couldn't do that. The third year would have been his chance to show what he could do.  I know the problems and issues with them - of course I do, but the premise is the same - a manager needs time to develop a club and imo it is at least three years.

I do so hope that Farke is given the time to really fufill what he has started and not either be forced out by unrealistic fans who expect Lambert style success as a right - or indeed feel like he's not welcome at CR and chooses to ply his trade elsewhere.

If all you have to do is wait and be patient for a manager to improve things, should we have not sacked Roeder and Gunn then?
