I’m just content when we win. We were great against Burnley. Watched Watford too that was shite
Surely the truth is this really isn’t any more entertaining than last season if you remove the 2 or 3 exceptions and that’s with investment and results are worse.
Do you not agree this is far from good enough and there’s been very few good performances
Watched Liverpool too that was quite good until the end. There’s really not been much to be happy about this season
I don’t know why you keep going on about investment. Brands was tasked with the job of reducing the wage bill.
We’ve spent big transfer fees on players but they were only allowed to come in at the expense of players going out.
Brands and silva inherited a very unbalanced, ageing squad and had the tenor of reducing the wage bill, reducing the age, whilst also improving the quality of the players.
It’s not a remit that brings immediate results. Adding six players alone brings its own problems and the manager needs time to find the right blend.
I’m not interested in comparing this season to the one just gone. We were a complete irrelevance, treading water waiting for the season to end and start a completley new process.
Results could and should be better, but when you take over a team that has finished 11th, 11th, 7th and 8th over the last four season I fail to see why people expect anything much better.
If results are the same this time next season and we find ourselves in the same position, then that’s the time to ask serious questions.
Until then, give the manager time to work out the squad, find the right blend of players and bring in some more to hopefully improve us as a unit.
