We can all see when Farke changes the team to address particular issues - the trying of Marshall at right back, then Pinto, then Aarons? He hasn't wasted any time there this season has he? Or are we saying Aarons coming in doesn't represent progress?
So we've had a tough start to the season - but it hasn't been disastrous - and it's still early days. The strikers are all up and running and have scored - and we have a good squad. The head coach has adapted tactics so we are a bit more direct - and the balance in the side was better against Ipswich, after the naivety against Leeds, difficult a match as it was on Sunday, playing against what looked like a league 2 side.
I don't know why people can't anticipate improvement, it's not really my problem, but if I could get to the Middsbro match, I would be anticipating seeing an improvement after a two week gap in which the players can get a better understanding with each other.
Progress isn't going to be consistent, there will always be up times and down times in a season, but from what I've seen the potential is there and can see that Farke is aware of the issues and is addressing them.
