Turned radio off half way through. The timewasting by the ball retrievers issue was his way if distracting JT from questions about his tactics and weak signings. Hanson clearly not ready to start so we lose Windsor's free role effectiveness. Throw ins and free kicks still 'garbage'. And he wants to talk balls about balls. Hanson , Rose, Scannell, Bennet Mohsni and Green look like goners.
If we are going to struggle, at least play the young 'uns who want to build a career rather than merely extend it. 'Fitness' should not have been allowed to dominate selection to this degree.

Fed up of the BS and blaming lack of fitness. He signed the players that aren’t fit!

I stopped listening to him post match a couple of weeks ago and if I’m honest pre match I’m not that interested.

Tbf between all his ranting about the balls he does make some opaque references to some players underperforming, not doing what he wants and lacking belief in themselves. Think it's just the standard thing managers do after a bad performance where they'll highlight the good aspects (we had a lot of possession) while avoiding digging out the players directly to the media. I expect he'll be pulling them up on it in the dressing room and on the training ground though.

As previously mentioned, as much as I’d love to be wrong, this is going to all end in tears. Talks a good game but not much else

I’d have hoped so but I wonder if he’s actually got the time between training, travel, game schedule etc.

This is a squad that seems to need lots of 121 time with a lot of players either on their game, fitness, attitude or confidence. Can he do all that mentoring at the sane time as the “on the training ground” but?

It feels like he’s got a lot to do on his “to do” list.

Don't think it will all end in tears as there will definitely be two worse teams than us.

He's gone a different way in trying to solve our problem with all these loan players, it's not quite working yet but looking at some of the players he's signed I'm still hopeful.

What's the problem well it must be the budget, several managers have alluded to various budgetary issues over the year.

Frankly we are bottom division cannon fodder, we've not troubled the top half of division 4 in well over a decade  now, shamefull for this club quite frankly. Not all these managers over the last 15 years can be this shite.

I’d love to think you’re right but we’ve got a hell of a lot of players who are either unfit or incapable.

Don't see the issue with having a big squad personally. There's a wage cap in effect so it's not like we're blowing out the budget Bignot style. I imagine a load of the ones signed from non league will be on relatively low wages anyway and Holloway has mentioned we're not paying very much towards a number of the loanees. The only thing that is getting on my nerves is him rotating players out of the starting 11 (or the matchday squad altogether) after they've played well. Don't think it's any coincidence that Hendrie, Waterfall and Pollock have been three of our better players in the last few matches, and that's because they've started every game!
