No if Coates can't look at the BIG PICTURE of the last 18 months performances then a loss tomorrow will make little difference.
A win probably will though.
Well that is the problem . One win papers over a lot of cracks with Coates where as lots of defeats somehow don't do anything.
I don't usually do figures but shouldn't a manager be rated on his win percentage and cup success ?
I'll never forget the crap about the best squad we've had in a blatant attempt to cover the total lack of spending season on season. Now that statement is biting his arse.
Doesn't matter where we finish this season, even if we rally to a top ten position the piss poor performances of the last 18 months will not be forgotten in a hurry.
If I hear once more that we're a well run club :-[ ...... well run clubs don't get tonked 4-0 every five minutes then ship seven goals followed by home defeats to supposed lesser opposition when it already was a six pointer. Nor do they continually piss about with formation as a fashion statement despite not having ANY proper players.
I've almost forgotten what a twat Lineker is as it's been that long since I've wanted to watch MOTD.
What desperate ploy will it be this week, Shawcross as centre forward? Sobhi as right back sound stupid I know but you just can't bet against it with Hughes at the moment he's lost the plot.
