    Not a good look...

    I personally feel if there's any blame to dish out, then it's purely down to Harry and the coaching staff....I like Harry, and he's done a great job when he came in, to settle the club, and getting the player's confidence up, but in truth, the player's were already there, so who ever had come in, we would of been good enough to get top 4 or 5 IMO...Harry's whole career has been getting the best out of struggleing club's, which he managed more often than not by shrewed buying of good solid player's for lower PL club's...but at a higher level, although you need to be able to still buy player's they have to be of a lot higher quality, then you have to manage them. To me, it's poor management when you let player's play where they want, ( and of course Im talking about Bale in particular }, when it's obvious when he wander's, it affect's Modrics and Ekotto's game, and unsettles the ballance of the whole team.I cant think of any other manager who would allow such a thing, and then sit there until 10 minute's from time to change thing's, and if Harry cant see it, then you would expect Jordan and Bond's to make more effort in trying to get him too. Walker has come on well this season, but he's beginning to look tired now, and what do we do? allow player's who could cover him for a game or two, go out on loan, crazy.Im not slateing him just because we're struggling now, because I said the same thing's on here during the pre-season...As for could we of challenged for the title, then if you go by where we were in January, then yes, but it would of meant bringing in 3 or 4 top signing's, but of course the club had no intentions of spending what was required, so the squad we have is not nearly strong enough to maintain a season long challenge...In any single game, our first team is as good as any, but A squad wins the league...but ever the optimist..COYS give us the cup...
