Question for Nutty Nigel

Recommended Posts

What did you make of Jerome''s interview yesterday? I know you berated Martin for his honesty after the Brighton game. Wonder if the honesty and reality of Jerome''s interview was too much for you to stomach to? Thanks in advance. All the best. Keith Scott. Binner.

Did I berate Martin for his interview? I''m sure you''ll point me to that but in the mean time all I can remember saying was that I didn''t agree with it because I felt it compromised the managers team selection for the next game. As it was the only player left out was Jacob who made way for Brady. On the face of it that then appeared that Jacob was the only player who downed tools at Brighton but the manager obviously managed to keep Jacob on side because he came back and carried on his good season for us. Including scoring the goal against the binners in a game you started a thread saying you hoped we''d lose.
I don''t have the same issues with Cameron Jerome''s interview not least because he''s not captain. 
Keith, I don''t know if you''re a binner but I can''t stomach the idea any Norwich fan would start a thread titled "Come On Ipswich!" in the week leading up to the derby. So binner it is then.
You''re welcome[Y]

The Canaries’ embarrassing defeat at their

one-time play-off rivals Sheffield Wednesday triggered the striker to question

his team-mates’ respect for each other – but the manager should not be going

anywhere for now.

“He’s going to come under scrutiny again

because he’s managing a team that’s expected to get promoted,” said Jerome.

“Ultimately he picks a team, he’s got a talented squad at his disposal and the

11 players on the pitch aren’t doing their jobs.

“The manager and his coaching staff go

thorough thoroughly all our work in the week and in depth, tactical analysis on

the opposition, we know how the opposition are going to play and we train that

way in the week, we set up to combat that – and ultimately it’s simple mistakes

and it’s costing us.

“So what can you do? He’s on the sideline

getting more and more irate, and the goals are going in one after the other.

So it’s going to be that sort of pressure

on his part and on the club’s part from fans and people who are going to be

calling for his head.

“But there’s no need to make a hasty

decision now. There are 10 games to go and who knows what’s going to happen,

but I’m sure the club’s got every faith in him and the lads still believe in

him.

“It’s a decision what will probably be made

at the end of the season. Nothing too hasty. A 5-1 result’s not going to

suddenly change things and sack the manager. I think the club has been more

than sensible enough with the patience they’ve shown with the manager this year

and rightly so, because if you look at what he’s done for the club, he has

actually done a good job.

“But ultimately it’s the players who go out

there week in, week out, that haven’t performed. So his hands are tied from my

point of view.”

 

City are back in action as quickly as

Tuesday’s trip to bottom three side Bristol City, and Alex Neil’s men can’t

afford to let Saturday’s recriminations linger.

“It’s difficult to get around those issues

with another game so quickly,” said Jerome. “As a team, you don’t want to dwell

on disappointment too much. The manager will have a debrief and I think

everyone has just got to be honest with each other – as a person and as a

human, you need to sit there and be able to accept criticism.

“I think it’s the way the game has evolved

over the last five to 10 years. Certainly before I was playing, I remember

being a young lad coming in to play in this league and you’d get slaughtered by

some of the senior players even if they were having a nightmare and you were

having a good game, just because they were the senior player and that was how

it went.

“But people are too precious these days and

that’s just how football has changed over the years. People aren’t willing to

accept criticism and people think they’re above it.

“As a player, you sit there and no one is

exempt from it. Myself included. I’ve not been doing my job fully if the team’s

not winning. It’s a simple as that. It’s not just a certain area, the midfield

or defence or attackers. It’s us collectively as a team, as a group of players

on that pitch, we’re not doing enough to win football matches and that’s the

bottom line.
