Where has the identity gone?

Recommended Posts

The fact is that there are few managers out there that have a better track record for getting more out of players than anyone thought possible. 

Either Farke finds some more in these players or we go down. Nobody should be deluded enough to believe that a change of manager will leave us better off than we are though.

I agree with the sentiment of the thread title, but not the knee-jerk demand for a new manager. 

We have totally lost our identity. I think we've tried to change too much (personnel and tactics) too quickly and it's spectacularly backfired.

The new signings, and especially the loan players, have no understanding of the shape and style we're used to playing. We are significantly worse than we were last season and there are no signs of recovery.

I think we need to revert back to the exact system we played so well last season just replacing Skipp with Normann and Buendia with Tzolis. Not one of the new players has shown that they are any better than what we already had.

Rashica is no better than Cantwell or Hernandez. Sargent is no better than Dowell. Williams is nowhere near as good as Giannoulis. Kabak is no better than Omobamidele. Gilmour is nowhere near as good as any of our other midfielders.

Let's put as close as possible to the Championship winning team out there. Then the places have to be won from them if the new players think they're better.

I forgot about Lees-Melou. He's that anonymous I completely forgot he existed until he demonstrated just how awful he is. Rupp is a much better player.

I'm realising just how bad the summer transfer window was. The signings haven't improved the first team at all. The only thing we've achieved is to tear apart the title winning team and leave a total mess.

I genuinely can't see how the club can recover from this.

Well listening to Rodeo North Folk, they have said how well PLM has played in the second half.

I only notice PLM when he is getting booked every week

Yet last time around they didn't spend on the argument that the team had earned the right to compete in the Premier League. 

It's damned if you do and damned if you don't.

Someone should write a song about this to the tune of "Where have all the flowers gone"

Some line suggestions:

Where have all the players gone/ we have sold them every one 

Where have all the Farkeball gone/long ball passing/ Can you find it, any one? etc.

How about 'Pierre Lees-Melou, where are you' to the Scooby Doo theme tune?

The problem is that in response to basic defensive errors/issues that ought to be resolvable on the training ground we have just abandoned our established style and patterns of play. I agree we need to revert to last seasons shape and (in the main) team and try and get ourselves going.
