If you were invited down to training tomorrow morning, and had the chance to lead a team meeting what would your team talk consist of?
Would get them on the team bus and take them for a trip to Ringway and stop outside the job centre and make them realise how lucky they all are and where they may end up in a few weeks time.
Some of the players need a reality check, flash houses and cars and £100 hair cuts are for winners, not mediocre lazy bit players.
Once did a course on motivation in industry, it was stated that 2 things motivate a work force, money and pride in their work/company.
Clearly money motivates this lot as there is no pride on display.
Money is surprisingly unimportant as a motivator - the majority of people just need to think they are being paid fairly compared to others. More important are things like feeling appreciated for your work and feeling you are part of a team....

If I was Ferguson, I would say to the players:
"OK, things obviously aren't going well. What do you think we should be doing? Where have I been making mistakes?"
He needs to get the players on his side - they don't seem to be at the moment.
