you want me to go over how poor our financial results are?
you want me to repeat how piss poor M*yes record against the top teams is?
you want me to go over the list of injured and doubtful players for the game?
let's just do the players shall we?
Lukasz Fabianski is nearing a return from a thigh problem.
Robert Snodgrass is battling to overcome a knee injury.
Ryan Fredericks, Felipe Anderson, Andriy Yarmolenko, Arthur Masuaku and Jack Wilshere are still sidelined
we're supposed to be picking up some player no one has ever heard of on load... and Diangana is supposedly staying with WBA until May...
probably the most worrying bullshit I've read in the build up to the game (oh yes dear people... I do research for this shit - admittedly not much, but I do do some)
"Mark Noble knows the Club inside-out. He is questioning all the players, he’s digging them out, but that’s what good leaders do. You don’t want it to always be the manager. He’s doing everything he can to get the players rallied and focused.
We’re all well aware of the difficult period we’re in at this moment in time, not just in terms of difficult results, but with the games we’ve got coming. He’s helping me do my job well.
[I’m pleased by] the team spirit within the squad and also their willingness to dig each other out as well. They’re not letting anyone get away with it – they’re trying to make sure everybody’s responsible for their jobs.
There’ll be times when players don’t play well, there’ll be times when players make mistakes, but I think collectively, for me they’ve shown a positive attitude. They’ve been really honest in their work, and they’re trying their best to get us results."
This is the stuff I hate... as we know... all along the lines of 'we know we didn't play well... yada yada... we need to come together... etc... etc"
So what's all this:
"the team spirit within the squad and also their willingness to dig each other out as well. They’re not letting anyone get away with it – they’re trying to make sure everybody’s responsible for their jobs"
so exactly how do you square that with how piss poor we've been since October...??? The craptastic performances from EVERYBODY (with the exception of Antonio and on occasion Fornals and Snoddy) but nothing has changed in that time. NOTHING!!!!
so exactly what are the players and noble digging into? what exactly are they not letting each other get away with???????
Because the performance are getting worse... game before last was the worst passing accuracy I can remember seeing... no one is playing well... so do they all 'dig' at each other and then just mutually agree to do bugger all about it?????
Because I ain't seeing any improvement on the pitch.
