The result wasn't that much of a shock though was it.A lot of pundits, ex players and even bookies were giving Millwall a chance, so to use that result as a reason to get rid of Silva is a bit stupid.The most concerning thing for me is the lack of leadership on the pitch, not off it, there's no one playing for the badge and seemingly no one really caring whether we win or lose. Millwall just fought harder than us for the win, and it's happened a few times this season.I'm hoping that maybe last night was the result that reignites some of that back in to our players, the manager can only do so much.
What does Zonal marking mean. If a player comes in to your zone then you mark him, simples, will someone tell the players that.
Name me one top club that doesnít zonal mark.https://twitter.com/carra23/status/1089247342765711360?s=21
Agree here. Itís this type of aggression that we lack. Who will plow through people to head it away?Mina Iíd presume but heís still off the pace. Zouma isnít dead aggressive and Keane is actually more of a passive defender. We donít have a DM grock and bigger players like Sig arenít like Cahill/ Fellaini. Digne and Coleman probably are ok but being smaller limits ability vs massive grocks.
Hes the manager though. He manages the players and the coaches. I wouldnt think hed do all the coaching himself.I imagine the manager sets the objectives, in this case to zonal mark and be good at it. Id prefer not to zonal mark personally but other clubs make it work, so either the players arent doing what theyre told to do or the coaching isnt good enough. If hes not going to change the objective he needs to change the players or the coach, and a new coach is probably easier to get.Or, maybe he does take the set piece training, and he needs to recognise its a major weakness of his. And bring in a first team coach that compliments his shortcomings.Either way he cant just keep banging his head against the wall.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

When Silva was first appointed by us, I was neutral towards him, his past managerial history wasn't that spectacular but at the same time it seemed like he had potential to get our team playing good football whilst also getting results.I would keep him as manager for now even if it meant we were to finish 15th at the end of the season - unless of course we deteriorate further and were to lose our next 5-6 games and edge towards the relegation zone. I'm just a little tired of all this chopping and changing of managers every so often and I'm willing for now to go along with the line that Silva will make reinforcements in the summer to make our team much better than it is now.However if it becomes clear that Silva will be a failure and we have to sack him - so he joins 3 other former managers possibly still on our payroll - then I think Farhad "Museum" Moshiri has to shoulder the responsibility for this and also reassess how much input he has towards football matters. Through his pursuit of Silva, he has risked damaging significantly relations with another Premier League club regarding our approach which could see us at worst be docked points by the Premier League if this dispute is not sorted out between us and Watford. With Brands being promoted to the board, then this could potentially see our director of football have more influence and maybe take away some of that big decision making on football matters including which managers to target from Moshiri and Kenwright.
