My biggest concern in the summer was the lack of PL experience and it is showing, a couple of experienced heads could have made all the difference. I know he left on awful terms but how much did Everton pay for Delph? I would have taken him in a heartbeat...We should have pushed more to keep Tuanzabe and actually signed a striker. I love Smith and it's sad but he's not turning this around. This league is brutal and it destroys promising managers who can't cope with the pressure when things get tough and I am afraid that is what is happening to Smith. We can't afford to let the club go down with him....once that pressure really kicks in, there's a one in a million manager who can get his players to turn it round. We talk about the players having no fight, and no cohesion but don't underestimate how much that has to do with psychology, intense pressure week in week out, if you've never experienced things going horribly wrong, you don't know how you will cope with it and a lot of players will crumble, not want to play, start to hate the game...it doesn't matter how much you are paid players will never perform well if that mindset kicks in. And that is why PL experience for both players and manager is so valuable. It's not just the physical side of it it's the mental pressure of being in a losing side when you are physically under the kosh being able to cope with it and fight....and bizarrely out of all our players, given his background, I would have thought Wesley would have been the one most able to deal with it, but then maybe he is simply not good enough.
