Plastic Head Posted March 8, 2008 Share Posted March 8, 2008 Thought we should have a dedicated thread to gauge opinion on the manager. I'm starting to think now that the Hughes era might be coming to an end. There are 2 ways to look at it. Either: a) He is doing a fantastic job to keep us in the division, never mind the top 8, with a poor group of players. or B.) He has a decent group of players (which admitedly he has had a big part in assembling) and the football his team produce is negative and uninspiring to say the least. It depends how you personally rate the squad I suppose. I happen to think we are where we should be with this group. The keeper is worth 4 or 5 league places on his own. I will always stick up for the guy because his transfer dealings have been excellent, but man has it been grim at Ewood this season. I think needlessly so. The posters who are unable to get to games may think that season has been another triumph, but I think all season ticket holders and regulars will agree that while our league position is very creditable, a trip to Ewood has been a torturous time for all but a couple of games this season. I would be very intersted to know the views of others. Changing manager is always a traumatic and dangerous time and it's usually better to stick with the devil you know. Maybe Sparky is disillusioned with the lack of financial backing and is ready to take on a new challenge, I don't know. But I do know one thing, the team needs freshening up, some new ideas, maybe a new number 2 ??? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
