Our selection process has been chaotic this season, just as it was last.
Players are being played out of position, ie Clarke used as a striker, worked for a bit but lets face it, he just is not a striker, seems he is being chosen just for the sake of it, even as a left back on a number of occasions I believe. If Keeling is fit then he should be played; for me, he brings the whole aspect of our attacking play into reality.
Kennedy is far better used wide of midfield not centre of; Kennedy just does not function in the centre roll.
When we have a fit young pacey defender in our squad, why is he out on loan; we have a defensive problem, that’s for sure, then Jay Conroy should be back with us and given the chance to show his worth, especially if those in choice now are not doing it for us.
Basic skills, I wonder what the success rate of our so called ‘passing’ is, I bet the percentage is pathetic. My belief is that if a player is fit than he can execute his basic skills (learnt at an early stage) without a problem, lose that fitness and your skill levels start to fall. We all have to admit that the team has looked very lack-lustre, slow to the loose ball, poor passing, disjointed and out of shape.
I haven’t seen the last two games, I have read the reports and all of your comments and of course I have been to most games this season.
Its no surprise to me about the position we are in, most people that I speak to feel the same as me and could see this happening months ago.
Some years ago, if we had a weakness in the side Jeff would be onto it straight away and get it sorted; that’s just not the case nowadays.
So what can we expect, I hope I am wrong but I suspect that unless we see a complete change of ability and commitment in our players, then we are facing relegation full in the face.
