Mind boggling - "We've only played one bad game"

Recommended Posts

If, as reported on another thread, Worthington feels we''ve only played badly once this season then what else do you need to know.

We haven''t played well for 90 mins once this season as far as I''m concerned.  The standards and expectations set seem ludicrously low.

After the Birmingham game, we were apparently back to the way we have performed 99% of the time over the last five years (which presumably is something he is happy with) - this being a period in which we''ve won 11 games out of 55 and failed to win away all season.

How are things going to improve when those at the helm don''t even recognise there is a problem?

Things will not go unless the Manager goes, let''s face that. If he does go, it will take something drastic - perhaps another 6 - 0 hammering on the final day of the season and a spell in League one following that?

I''m actually bewildered that people who are running this football club have recognised the plethora of problems we have, which 25,000 odd fans who pack into Carrow Road have worked out.

Our standards, like you say, have been low all season - so what did the board think when we were 4 - 0 down at h/t at Luton? They were probably content.

You know I thought I read that quote when I posted this morning but it was so outlandish that I decided to check the quote then couldn find it and thought I had imagined the whole piece!

It is that sort of inane ludicrous head in the sands comment that encourages fans to think that Worthy HAS lost the plot.  If he genuinely thinks that there has only been 1 then why do we keep going back to basics?  If he thinks that then can he not see the faults, to be able to put them right?

A bit of honesty is all we need - there have been numerous bad games and it will not just a little luck and lot of shouting from the fans to turn things around.

I think you''ll find that the stats ''over the last 5 years'' are not those. Can anybody explain why the benchmark for form is now ''the last 55 games''. Seems an odd number to me... unless you''re using that stat just to back up your argument? Plus, I must have dreamt the away wins at Ipswich and Brighton then!

Can we start using ''the last 100 games'' or something, just to give it a different perspective? Or the last 8 games, as is more normal. And I agree, over the last 8 games we have been rubbish.

Following on... whoever said the Board have their heads in the sand must themselves have their eyes closed and their fingers in their ears singing ''la la la''. The Board/Delia etc. have said on numerous occasions that they are not happy with the results. I don''t think anyone disagrees that the results are appalling.

We, the manager, the Board, etc. just all have different opinions on what we do about it. Some fans say make the manager a scapegoat and sack him. Others say support the team and give him a chance to dig us out of this mess, even if he did create it.

By all means let''s have this debate, but please don''t suggest that just because I disagree with how to resolve the problem means I don''t think there is a problem.
