Efete, McAtee, Sousa, JMD, Crocombe, Taylor and Fox are my four, five or six by the way.. and I'd like to have a better look at Longe-King sometime.. the rest.. hard-working, but meh, never get us out of this division..

Towler, Hunt, Bapaga and maybe Bell would have been added to that list..

Quoted from Bigdog


He seems to have crushed the confidence and put doubts into what looked like a cohesive and happy squad. Very early in the bad run,he started moaning about one or two players not performing and then at least six games before the transfer window began threatening the players with change very publicly. Now I'm no psychologist but I don't think outbursts like that helped with squad confidence. Maybe a bit more of "I've got belief in my players" or "we've got a talented bunch here", might have got better desired effects than digging them out in public. It was like, "my tactics are perfect" it's the players who aren't good enough to carry them out" kind of thing. Never goes down well with pro-football squads. The bizarre dropping of Towler and Hunt at times can't have gone down well either internally and it obviously affected both players. I thought Bapaga was growing into the season and then he disappeared without a trace.

I mean, look what we've been left with at the moment, a shambles of a squad with probably four, five or six with the ability to compete at the top end of Division Five. Massive transfer window for Hurst coming up.. and for the owners too imho. I said ten games in we were in a flattering position and I've gone from giving PH time to now giving him until the end of February to turn this around or else he doesn't deserve to be the one to build our club's playing side off the pitch. His record over the past three or four seasons speaks for itself. He's no longer holding a winning formula on his cv..


Interesting points BD.  PH can be quite harsh sometimes, maybe he is trying to get his players to do too much.

I was thinking earlier actually about tactics, not sure what got me thinking but i was i like if i was a manager what sort of tactics would i employ.  I remember watching a football documentary and some players struggled with tactics or understanding what was asked of them.  For me i would be keep it simple and show the threats of the opposition to the players, i'd let them decide how they want to play.

I'd add Clifton to that list you always need a yard dog, and HC has still time to improve.

I think it's as simple as this. In modern day football it's the manager's job by his own actions to maintain and/or build the squad's confidence as a whole and individually. PH has clearly failed these past three months. Whether he can't do it anymore or he's suffering from a lack of confidence himself after his last 100 games or so in management, I don't know, but he's going to have to get his mojo back sooner rather than later. A dour, critical and pernickerty Yorkshireman isn't going to turn our season around and get us into the play-offs..

As for footballers, changing tactics can be relatively easy for them as long as they believe in the tactics, believe in their own role in the tactics and also that the said tactics work..

Waterfall was has been consistently good this season. Plenty good enough with a bit of pace alongside him.

Agree to a certain extent, but not good enough to get us out of this league or make the footballing link with the ball cohesive enough between defence and midfield. Need better to get promoted..

No, they're good players who'd play even better with better teammates..
