Ok we have had a couple of poor results and performances but I honestly believe from what I know is going on behind the scenes that we will be ok. I would even dare to believe that with the positivity I have witnessed that this season could still be one that we will be celebrating come May. 👍🏼
A couple of poor performances🤔??

I wish you were right - I just can’t see anyone in the current squad being capable of grabbing a game by the scruff of the neck and turning it round.

these are his players and there isn’t a leader amongst them.

NC has had more money than any manager I can remember and he’s brought in this lot.

I really can’t see How On earth can he turn this round ??

Good to hear, and following my capitulation after the disappointment of todays performance I agree with your sentiments but do feel the squad is unbalanced and lacking experience. But this is a long term project not a knee jerk reaction.

Unfortunately you won't find any points behind the scenes. We'd like to see things going on on the pitch ideally.

So what's happening? More signings?

I have seen Pool suffer some home thumping and fully deserved too.
Outplayed and outclassed. Today though was not the case.
They were just better at finishing and on another day the 3 chances they had and took in the first half could have ended up in the North Stand.
Yes I am concerned but I believe we will come good.

I spoke to an Ipswich fan after the game on Twitter. That's literally what he said. Tbf, I thought we were poor but when you go through it, they were lethal today, we really weren't.

4 bad games......
A shame the players are looking anything but positive..
Football is played on grass not behind the scenes....

With a good memory as well.
Maybe you'll post something on here one day that is just as fan and not with an agenda or to make you look important.
You mean like the night before I told you the bailiffs were turning up or my posts about how Valeri was going to do what he did? Get some perspective in your life sad boy...... without Simon, Brett and their families we wouldn’t even have a club for sad muppets like you to moan about 🙄

Without Simon , Brett and their families? You were slagging everything they did when they first came in 😀 You must really want to get your feet under the table.

Might not gain promotion this season, but if I remember correctly SS said 2/3 years as a realistic target. It’s a completely new regime, it needs time for everything to come together. Too many fans of the ‘ I want it now’ persuasion bleating and panicking! Dearie me.
All fans want success yesterday......
Utd want Solksjaer out 3 points from 9.....
He ended last season on a roll

Try and find a post where I slagged any of them off.... you won’t be able to!!!! My problem was with the interim board (TAM excluded) and their hangers on and I think looking back that the comments I made back then were pretty spot on 😘

Behind the scenes positivity is all well and good. Everything SS has implemented so far has been outstanding, apart from the key ingredient, the team. For me, the one element you can’t guarantee to be successful,is the team on the pitch. Every appointment is something of a gamble and this gamble is looking like a bad move already. NC looks like a coach trying to be a manager, which rarely works.
NC has recruited mostly young and inexperienced players to work with and hopefully improve, that’s what he does, but unfortunately he has no leaders on the pitch and standing there arms folded consulting with a fellow youth team coach for an assistant won’t solve anything.
I don’t think this ‘project’ is going to work.

I keep reading about Ipswich taking there chances and we didn't, apart from Madine scoring from a goal mouth scramble and shooting straight at the keeper with a snap shot I can't remember us testing there keeper. I think our problems are much deeper than not taking our chances.

The keeper didn’t have a save to make.

I’d still love to know the behind the scenes activity which has filled MM with positivity???
That’s not a dig by the way, just curious as on the pitch it’s hardly encouraging?

What do you want me to elaborate on? I, like many others, know people at the club and whilst they’re positive so will I be 👍🏼
People at the club have bought into the Liverpool love in with NC and have been sold a dream

We are a million miles away from where we need to be

The squad is shocking with no leaders

I can't think of one team in the history of football that has ever been successful without on pitch leaders a strong spine to the team

Most of these players have less than 5 games at BFC, Did we always used to be so impatient or is it only since the Premier league?

But (has) he brought in these players?

There's no clear evidence to support any positive thinking. A coach with no knowledge of league1 has brought in a bunch of mid 20's league2, released and young reserve players. I would add that Mansford and Johnson have to share the blame for the bizarre recruitment policy.

Someone of your age really should have a bit more patience and be able to see the bigger picture, not constantly seeking the negative in every single decision the club makes.

Someone like you should take off your tangerine spectacles which appear to be blurring your vision in relation to the current state of affairs on the field.

I can see there are problems Nigel, but whereas you have spat your dummy and decided that we should yet again be changing everything despite not seeing the players fully fit and settled in to a team and formation they're familiar with, I'm able to see the bigger picture.

We are awful ...
I don't think we've all bought into the Liverpool style but like it or not that is what we are playing so if you talk about football that's what you have to analyse. Anyway don't panic I got an e-mail from the Club yesterday They want me in as sweeper. Oddly though they've told me to report to Bloomfield Rd and not Squires Gate.

The recruitment process is ok by me, there’s nothing wrong with identifying young and hungry players with pace. My issue is that we need a couple of experienced heads in there, which seems to have been ignored.
We also don’t have one decent and proven striker at the club and they have 4 days to sort it.
It also can’t be underestimated how much this team need a crowd behind them.
