We appear to have a decent squad, six weeks ago, we appeared to have a bit of a clue but now, we look like a bunch of strangers who don’t know what the hell to do. Summed for me when Akheem Rose had a clear run on goal and didn’t seem to know what he was supposed to do next.

Manager has a lot to explain because on this evidence we’ll be in our usual looking behind us mode again soon.

I’ll give Rose the benefit of the doubt and put the missed chance down to not knowing if he was offside or not but agree that was poor.

A good striker puts the ball in the back of the net and lets the ref decide if he was offside or not.

And I said the same thing at the time but understand why he delayed the quarter of a second which allowed the chance to pass by.

We just happen to be in the bad patch stage of the good patch / bad patch cycle we’ve been on since Jolley arrived.

In my opinion, it’s not that he lacks tactical ability (he can come up with a good game plan), it’s that he lacks tactical agility. As soon as other sides work out a way to play against us, we’re screwed as it takes six or seven games to find a solution and so the cycle repeats.

I don’t necessarily disagree with the way he set up the squad this year, but the reality is that we’re generally not that pretty when we win; we’re Jackie Stallone-level ugly when we lose and that doesn’t do much in terms endearment from the fans.

He’s learning and that’s fine, but he needs to learn fast if he’s going to build a meaningful, long-term career in the game.

There haven’t been any any tactics or strategy visible for months. What’s the point of having a manager if all we are gonna do is aimlessly, hopefully punt it forward? I think the least we can expect is a visible method of play. Even if we get beat. Where is it? It’s absolutely cr@p.

I think he’s turning into Hurst Mark 2. Stubborn and spends too much time planning for what the opposition can do to us rather than what we can do to them.

He’s had plenty of time. These are his players. We are making no progress whatsoever and the stats underline that point. A manager has to produce. They need a fair portion of time of course but he’s had that. For me , his time is all but up. It’s not good enough.
