Shock horror, football fans sensing a gradual decline of their club wanting changes to be made in the coaching set up.
Naughty boys and girls. Know your place.
They must be made to write out one hundred times:-
"We must settle for second best."
"We must settle for second best."|
I would summarize it as a lack of patience and a lack of respect for what is trying to be achieved. We all get angry and frustrated by poor results and sub-standard performances but it seems as if some people just don't want to give any time or credence to anything to do with the club - and they make a dis-proportionate amout of noise that can only fuel the idea everything is up the creek.
So it goes to Farke for the blame, then it goes to Webber, oh and then the blame goes to the board...then it goes to the owners...then the whole club is seen as in disarray, everything is wrong, nothing is right....and the circle is complete. The doom mongers are happy because they stirred things up, the binners are happy - and there are quite a few binners on here who love hiking up the rhetoric against anything that is against the club.
It's the easiest thing in the world to be unhappy with something that doesn't seem to be working in the present moment and wish for change so things can be better, much harder to stick with it in the knowledge that in the long term things will work out. Hughton never got a chance to - his luck ran out before a third season in which imo he would have found solutions to our problems. Neil would have sorted out the squad rebuilding well imo and set us up well for the following season, but his luck ran out.
Farke will get his two years and if he doesn't do well this season, his luck will run out - but given time, his methods would work, as with Neil and Hughton. Football is cruel, it often doesn't give a manager the time he needs to really get things sorted. I reckon that to change a whole club's culture you need three whole seasons, but manager's often can't be allowed that time to finish the job they started. That is why the Bruce's and Warnock's keep getting jobs - because they often produce results quickly, but are they good for their clubs' long term?
We have a long term project and I think it is important to recognise that and support it. By the end of two years we should be seing some progress. We have only just started the second year....
