The sad thing is, there's certainly an element of that happening. Some of the players are clearly not doing what they're asked to, and that is hurting us.
But he's used this excuse so many times and refuses to take any part of the blame so stubbornly, that people just dismiss it. And of course it's generally the same players that let us down, and he keeps picking them, so the idea that it surprised him is ludicrous, unless he's incredibly thick.
As you said before though if you’re constantly changing players then there’s a good chance that errors will be made.
We know that it doesn’t take much at PL level to get walloped if things are wrong.
We’re making it more likely by changing attack, midfield and defence game by game almost, even when we’ve done well in the previous game.
