    A valid observation and very worrying indeed. I feel the change in approach is intentional. I think Smith realized the obvious deficiencies with our defending, and tried to fix it by totally changing the way we play. Problem is it isn't working. Then again, I don't think his earlier gung-ho approach was sustainable in the long run either. We just don't have the energy for 'gegenpressing'. He needs to find a solution fast, that much is certain. I just can't fathom why the exact same thing seems to be happening to all our managers.

    Agreed, and an equally big contributing factor is missing Axel. But just look at Brentford, there is your answer to the original point. Smith signed that team.

    Honestly I dunno. Obviously I'm not happy with what I'm seeing at the moment. Then again the squad is just shit. At the start of the season, I really didn't foresee them being this bad. With hindsight it now feels like a huge mistake loaning out all the youngsters, since there isn't really much DS can do to change it around.

    I can recall this exact situation too, because I was fuming at the fact he just let him "slip by". Any other footballer, on any level, would've seen to it that the ball goes out of play, at the very least. He's just so incredibly passive it's almost unreal. I do remember him missing a golden opportunity at 0-0 second half too, that could've changed the game.

    Well yes we do need a 'nutrition specialist' too.

    Seriously mate I don't want to hear another word about this Allardyce nonsense, not while Dunga is still available.

    And when that fails, we can always rehire Bruce. He'll probably have a few more promotions to his name by then.

    I hear Dunga is also available.

    I do, because I'm certain DS will turn it around given time. We already got a glimpse of what it may be like in the beginning. There was never any such hope with Bruce.

    This pretty much sums up why we are where we are. Pathetic.

    You have to earn the right to win.

    They are coming at us hard at the moment, but at least we are fighting.

    Yeah I agree, DS is surely having a bad influence on him.

    This might be true, but Elmo is simply a total liability as a full back, even more so than Hutton.
