Quoted from chaos33
It’s hard to understand fully what was meant by the slightly clumsy overstatement that is the title of this thread, but, nonetheless , I think it would be unfair to be over critical of MJ after 2 disappointing results.
We need to stay balanced I reckon.

Lots of people favour a settled team selection and it’s chicken and egg when your results are up and down like ours are. Most people are now advocating changes to last weeks starting 11 and will be vocally critical if he doesn’t exchange some starters, but then others will call it more ‘tinkering’. He’s a bit stuck if the players don’t deliver, like they didnt last Saturday, with basic errors everywhere. And.....how many would, of course, benefit from a ‘run in the team - just like Vernam. Difficulty is - you’re only gonna get that after successive good results, you play well when you get the chance, and it can only really be achieved  if you don’t pick up injuries or suspensions, like we have.

Our basic problem is - we have better players this season than last, but too many of them are not performing to the standards they’ve shown/set on a regular basis. We have too many changes in selection and two many playing ‘out of their best position’, much of which, in fairness,  is enforced, of course. And, we are palpably and frustratingly short of a natural, wide attacking player or two, only having one, who’s now injured.


True to an extent but I don’t think people are advocating the same 11 for every game, more that fans would like to see a settled way of playing and tactics that get the best from our players.

That might stop this daft worrying about the way other sides like the Mighty Stevenage will play and concentrate our players’ minds on doing what we want but better and better as time goes on. Let other sides do the worrying while we just pick the best form players in natural positions with tactics they understand and have trained for.

Just simple things like playing a left footer at left back, particularly as he's done very little wrong in the games I've seen.

Im not going to panic, we are well placed inn the league with a decent enough set of players
Couple arent performing but every player cant be on song every game, whitehouse and green been poor but they are good players but like most league 2 players they lack consistency.
Midfield has been my biggest worry and need to strengthen.
