Frankie explains Sinclair & Murphy situations

Hull and Brentford our back 2 were Storey and Lindsay. Bauer and Hughes are a much better more balanced partnership. Wouldn’t work every game, but have plenty to be able to do the basics and allow the rest of the squad to play
Yeah, good point.

Jesus wept reading that is grim.

He needs to be replaced and soon. I genuinely believe we have a decent squad of players. Not enough to challenge at the top end granted but we have enough to give anyone a game in this division and by give them a game I don't mean spend 90 minutes having 10 men behind the ball just trying to cling on to a point.

Its fucking awful to watch. I cannot stand the tactic of having every man back to defend a corner, especially when we had Riis and Barkhuizen on the pitch, players made for counter attacking.

Its like scoring goals ourselves isn't even on the agenda, its all about trying to stop us conceding goals.

I want a manager that's not afraid of losing a game, someone that wants to set the side up to go out and compete for the 3 points. Someone needs to sit Frankie down and explain that winning one then losing one gets you more points than two draws.

I think that’s a good post. We may not be a team that’s going to challenge at the top end, but what have we got to lose by having a go? Surely we’ll win more points than we’ll lose?

I remember united fans saying that about someone called Alex Ferguson. And Burnley saying it about the hopeless boring Dyche.

I think you need to be realistic, Realistic. Frankie didn't even really want to be a manager. He isn't up to it. Dyche and Ferguson are both hard as nails characters. Frankie is a lovely guy by all accounts, I get the impression he's scared to lose games so he's reverted to trying his best just not to lose rather than setting up to try and win.

I get the impression he's scared of Ledson, so drops/subs Whiteman.

Least they both had experience and ambition to be a manager. Meanwhile FM is talking about how Murphy hasn't been scoring or defending well enough when he's had about 60 minutes of football. How is he meant to find his feet like this?
