Maybe it's a long term job and JFH should have been given more time?
Nah I wouldn't go that far.

Now? Well, depending on if he'd want to come my first choice would be Roger Schmidt, ex-manager of Leverkusen and RB Salzburg.
Ray, more realistic would be as I've mentioned a few times today get the Lincoln management team of Danny Cowley and his
brother in, give them 3 years to get us up.
I'm not sure Holloway has any kind of plan, he changed the formation 2-3 times today, next season ain't gonna be any different it seems.
Isn't changing the formation during a game the sign of a good manager, especially if the current system isn't working?
I think people are frustrated that Olly doesn't seem to know his formation and tactics before the game :shock: That is a bit concerning. It's going to take time and endless patience, and days like these to turn us around unfortunately.

If it's remotely successful yes, but we only had 3 shots on goal today, simply unacceptable!

By the way why not get John Terry in as a defensive coach, remember our defence ain't no defence! sofahide

Interesting point and has some validity but not when it happens every game.

The changes themselves were not the problem. The problem, as someone else has allured to, was the bloody stupid 5-3-2 formation with sub-standard wing backs, two makeshift centre backs and a sh*t sweeper. Ergo, we gifted them possession in our half, unsurprisingly gifted them two goals, and much like previous weeks, changed to 4-4-2 after the proverbial horse had bolted. Carry on like that and we'll be making our way to Gillingham, Charlton, PLymouth etc in 2018
Come on you Sooopa ........

It's funny, Harry tried the 5-3-2 formation for awhile and it failed miserably. Changed back to 4-4-2 and we started performing.

I don't recall us ever performing under Redknapp in the PL. Tbh, given he'd recruited specifically to play 5-3-2, giving up after a few games was part of the problem.

As we run back to take another kick-off? Isn't the pulse on us as fans, maybe if we'd supported our team regardless there would have been an upturn in results.

I always support the team, but the manager is optional, I'll be here paying my money long after the managers come & go.

Poor today. Route 1 again. Constant diagonal balls to nobody. Wszolek should've started - at least he can beat a man. Ollie needs to sort out what he really wants from the team and get them functioning. What a buncha Lee J. Cobblers.
