I've said it is a combination of things - poor manager decisions - players not delivering as they could.
the manager chooses within his budget - which hasn't been great - so I'd hesitate to blame Coyle too much for the squad.
I still think the squad we have is good enough to survive - that'll be down to them AND coyle AND other clubs doing worse AND us not having too much shoite luck AND no more major injuries... - as it pretty much always is.
not really sure what your point is....
2 weeks ago it was argued that it was NOT the players - JUST the formation. My point has always been that it is just never as simple as that.
do you disagree or something?
yeah - coyle chose pratley - but at the time - even BWFCi was saying that having Pratley would mean that Holden was not such a big loss... on the budget we have you have to take gambles on players - Pratley was one - there will be others... sometimes it'll come off - sometimes it won't.
PS - not sure where you get the idea that I think Coyle is not performing poorly
PPS - saying we are opunching above our weight is NOT the same as "accepting our place"
PPPS - I was personally one of the people who delivered that challenge to Lawro and subsequently watched live (along with DSB) as he had his tache removed - where were you???
Some people are like Slinkies … not really good for anything, but you can’t help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.
