Its time for the players to earn their money.
We are so lucky that this season there are several other clubs who are struggling too, there's plenty of points to play for and we could scrape it IF the players play their hearts out and grab us crucial points...For this to happen Southgate needs the full support of the dressing room and thats doesnt seem to be happening at the moment, either get rid of GS or cut loose the rotten wood and bring in some fresh blood...be that from other teams or the reserves.
We desperately need our experienced defenders back in the side, Poggy & Huth. Taylor & McMahon are too inexperienced as was proved against West Brom when McMahon gifted them the first goal. Wheater & Riggot havent the experience to lead the defense yet. Selling Luke Young last year is looking to be a big mistake when its now we could do with him most.
yes we certainly are not firing at the back or front this year and a young niave middle and back room staff just tops it all off..we have a handful of premiership players but not premiership tactics and coaching....The solution..a goal scorer (scoring goals changes games even when the opposition is on top)..more solid midfield..o'neil is not good enough to play there, digard has shown some great touches but gives far too much ball away(the first thing I tell the boys I coach..if the opposition haven’t got the ball they can not score....!!!
I do hope we can turn things around for everyone at the clubs sake especially SG and GS…come on boys play your hearts out…come back room staff just your brains….come on board use your wallets….
Up the Boro....!
