The Harwood Yankee Posted February 2, 2010 Share Posted February 2, 2010 It's not just an issue of Sam's teams playing 'ugly football' (though God knows its depressing as hell watching Robbo/Samba/Nelsen punt the ball forward in the hope of winning a set piece, and that's our sole tactic!), it's also his waste of the resources available to him: Stubbornly continuing to play one striker, even when its clearly not working and in effect takes that player out of the game. Weird substitutions which sometimes seem designed purely to remind the fans who's in charge. Bringing in players we don't need (Salgado) or offering them new contracts (Andrews) yet still complaining he has no funds to work with! A pretty cack-handed January transfer window, which has weakened the squad (unless Basturk proves to be more Tugay than Vogel). Of course he's better than Ince - that was a nightmare appointment from day one - but in comparison to Hughes it's an almighty step backwards. And Sam is so infuriatingly stubborn & arrogant he never seems to learn from his mistakes, which just intensifies the frustration. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
