Interesting link but I think there is something in the notion that our players are just not very good.

A manager certainly improves his team's chances of success by getting the tactics right but the even the best tactician in the world is not going to get a group of poor players to consistently win. Tactics can only take you so far. You also need to get other things right like the personnel at your disposal, attitude and belief.

I don't disagree, I was just pointing out that decision making based on 'gut feelings' rather than rigorous analysis is foolhardy and ignorant. There's a good analytical post over on Grim Outlook which shows Hurst cannot get his squad to play well anywhere near consistently enough to get us promoted - http://s2.excoboard.com/GrimOutlook/45999/2437747/2

The frustration for me last night was the fact that I think we have some good players who can play clever attacking football and they have shown it in some games to good effect. I am at a loss to understand how those same players then lose the ability to do the basics like controlling the ball, passing accurately, closing the opposition down and playing at a high tempo. Also why did it affect all of the team in the same game? It was almost as if Saturday had taken a lot out of them, they were so lethargic, thus making Southport look like a decent side who wanted it more than us. Even the usually vocal Doig on the touch line gave up and sat down. No-one on or off the pitch seemed capable of changing anything.

Exactly true. It really is baffling that they could all be so bad in a single game.
