The shine is wearing off rapidly

Recommended Posts

After last seasons amazing season when most of the regular squad played out of their skins and were now looking forward to displaying their considerable skills in the PL to enhance their careers with lucrative moves.  Now comes the reality that these players largely hav been proved to have feet of clay. Which may explain why our performances are so poor.

The most dramatic of a fall from grace is Emi Buendia who I am sure we all believed would readily perform in the PL and excel there has been a huge disappointment. His creativity has evaporated and has failed to make any significant contribution.  The big bucks are ebbing away in double quick time.

The German contingent are proving to be unable to adapt to the PL.  Leitner who appeared most suited to the PL is certainly not at present.  Stiepermann is not the player of last season.  Trybull has not been the proficient DM in his limited games.  All the hopes are rested on the not inconsiderable shoulders of Zimmermann hope he rises to the occasion.

Cantwell of the first 5 games has now failed to shine and in fact is proving to be a liability to the porous defence with poor distribution.

Defensively what can you say truthfully they are abysmal the prodigal son Ben Godfrey is now starting to make errors leading to goals.  Max and Jamal the rising stars who have the excuse of youth are struggling manfully but are falling short as defenders but might find themselves other PL homes.  I expect Ben to find another home but moves to the big boys as Spurs or Man U may not materialise and end up at Brighton or Palace.  Take notice and learn quickly lads.

Certain players are not to be criticised Krul has been a revelation, Pukki has not been given any service and Tettey not a CB has performed well in DM role.  These are unlikely to be offered mega deals owing to their age.

However the most disappointing performer has been Farke himself not adapting to the PL tactically or making changes when needed especially when poorly timed substitutions.

How long will Webber want to rule over Delia's subsistence existence.  The team is rapidly eroding the goodwill he has built over the last two seasons much more and his stature in the football world will disappear.

Can we save this season perhaps with Zimmo providing the inspiration however unlikely but don't expect the January transfer windows to provide any imports to save the day still no money we'll go with what we have.

Considering you are a wind up merchant on here, you have made some very good points. Farke is not to blame for this, neither Webber though. But this can be discussed on the umpteen other threads you post when we lose

Remember Sky give each club quite a bit of pocket money that helps buy new players.

Look at the overall financial picture. Even with Sky money it's still not that rosy.

It's always a question of risk reward. We tried to get hold of at least one £10m+ player this season, so we were prepared to gamble a bit (note: never gamble what you can't afford to lose).

And it's not solely about money. The player's got to be enthusiastic about the club & he's got to be able to fit in with our plans.

Otherwise you end up with the wrong players on expensive contracts. We've been there before ...

I respect your opinion but we needed to invest in  new players to help the squad improve. Still time to get points on board but it’s looking more unlikely by the week .
