    Much will depend on the reaction of the support to a potential heavy defeat against the RS. It could turn destructively toxic in the aftermath of such a failure which is why appointing a man who lacked sufficient depth of goodwill to survive a poor run of form was madness.

    Tackle the ball not the man. Or have you run out of excuses for your man?

    Farhad Moshirì

    Although you say you disagree you finish by pointing out that Moshiri (and by extension Usmanov ) are at the top of the currently malfunctioning pyramid. Which actually mirrors my position that he/they are the ones who carry ultimate responsibility for the debacle we are now witnessing.

    So there’s no downside then?

    Couple of points, If a business fails ultimate responsibility for that failure rests with the owner who appoints and directs the staff below him. Moshiri has been here for something like six years now and his administration has so far failed to improve the teams standing. We have little right...

    An increasingly unpopular owner supports an increasingly unpopular manager…..this could end well.

    Actually , being pedantic , you are only partially correct , Mercia comes from the Old English ‘Mierce’ which meant ‘Border People’. It was retrospectively Latinised presumably by monks and church trained clerks.

    I have always thought counter attacking football puts a heavier physical workload on the team. Spending long periods without possession means that you are reactively chasing the ball and when you do regain the ball you have to quickly accelerate from 0 to 60 to exploit the space your tactics...

    Counter attacking football is rightly labelled anti football by many. People in general will accept the limited entertainment value if you are grinding out trophies or even battling to survive , but it quickly palls if you are stuck in mid table purgatory. Football is meant to be an escape from...

    And there in a nutshell is why I never wanted this manager at the club, little to do with his past associations but everything to do with his dead end style of football. If we end up building a club based on his footballing DNA we will only continue our malaise in my opinion, it is a brand of...

    Starting what exactly? Starting to look remotely like a professional footballer perhaps? If so that’s a bold claim based on what we’ve witnessed so far.

    Conversely I feel sorry for you accepting the nothingness of mediocrity as the reward of your support. However revealing your passion for mediocrity at least solves the conundrum of your determined defence of its deliverer. But surely football should deliver more than endless tedium even if it’s...

    At this stage it really doesn’t matter who the manager is as long as he is capable of coaching these players to gather enough points to be safe from relegation because our current trajectory is securely downward. We don’t have the financial ability to make wholesale changes so whoever occupies...

    Match Thread Man City v Everton - Sunday 21st November 2pm. Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Hoping we can grind a 0-0 draw out of this today. Our current position along with the run of games ahead of us means we can’t afford to squander points regardless of the quality of the opposition.

    It seems to constantly irk you that some people hold a different opinion to your good self. Don’t let it bother you ,it would be a boring world if we all thought held the same views.
