I'm hoping that as soon as all our players are fit and he has options that Dean can build on the progress made to date. But he's really not met and overcome every challenge so far. There are still questions marks over his ability to change the course of a match through a change of approach (pretty sure we have one of the worst records in the PL for points gained having fallen behind), we have been over-reliant on Jack for a while (see our win record when he plays v when he doesn't) and the team has seemed disjointed in previous seasons when Jack wasn't playing, we also have a habit of going on long runs of bad results (partly linked to Jack being injured in the past). Just three challenges that I don't think Dean has met or overcome yet. We now have a much stronger bench and (in my opinion) a broader variety of options (so we aren't reliant on bringing on Trez or Davis to try and change the course of the game which would be a tough ask of even the best managers in the game). Our progress over the last 3 seasons has been excellent but there are elements where improvement is required (from players, coaches and the manager). Last year was a bit of a classic case - on paper it was nothing other than a great season of consolidation. But for a good 2 - 3 months we were pretty shocking and we didn't seem to try anything different to address that. As I said maybe we didn't have the options available but this season (unless we are hit by several injuries) we can't use that excuse. I know managers are always judged on results but I feel that this is a big season for Dean. I think he needs to show that either we have a tactic other than pass it to Jack and that if Plan A isn't working that we now have a Plan B and / or a Plan C. Hopefully he now has the players to do so. If not then questions must also be asked why we don't.
