|Does 4 points in 2 games... |

mean we're not sacking Warburton now? What's Paul Hart doing these days? Blimey. 28 points after 20 games.
Despite a bad patch we were odds on to get relegated and although we are a way from being safe we probably need 7 wins and a draw from 26 games to be well and truly safe. Perhaps even 6 wins and a draw. 28 points from 20 games with one of the lowest budgets in this league.
Yeah, but let's sack him. God how I hate sh*t online supposed sports sites.

For Everton anyway. Sacked!
Not really surprising. Never quite got him to be honest as a manager.
Would be refreshing if instead of clubs saying
We'd like to thank Marco for all his efforts over the last two seasons...
They just said
It's like we got him as a prize at a funfair, except a f*cking goldfish would have been more useful.

We appear to be zonal. Has to change surely.
We need good old Danny Maddix and Shaun Derry style shadowing on target strikers and playmakers. Stand on them until they give up.
Go man to man, kill the supply line and the target.

The frustration for me is that it is clear that he sees the problem but there seems to also be a bit of denial creeping in that we need to have a drastic rethink about how to defend when playing this system.
You can't say we don't block crosses, we don't pick people up without somehow thinking perhaps it's something to do with the way we are defending. For me it feels zonal all over the park. Zonal rarely works. Especially if you can't do that either.
However, if MW and staff can solve it then we start to win games again.

19 attempts on goal, 7 on target to Fulham's 11 and 4 on target. 50% of the possession.
Yet it is pointless, quite literally, if you can't defend properly as a team and we can't defend as one.
There is no crime in a goalkeeper occasionally lumping the ball 80 yards if it is not going to put you under pressure.
You have to defend against players on and off the ball, not be in a 'zone' where they may or may not be. Kamara is a big lump so put a defender on him as his shadow Danny Maddix style. Don't give him the space or time. Put a player on Cairney in the middle. Kick him up in the air and keep doing it until he gives up.
We are so soft in the way we defend. I was hoping two weeks would have sorted some of it out but it is the same mistakes being made again and again.
Don't get me wrong, this is not me turning on Warburton. It's just that there has to be a moment, with a side that is capable of winning these games to take drastic action in the way it defends and have at least 2 players who go man to man and nullify feed from the midfield and shadows the target man.
Has anyone got Clint Hill's number? Our management staff need him in to help do this. Get some kind of defensive system working that doesn't go zonal and concede two goals a game and we may just rediscover our mojo because my god we create a lot going forward but eternally leave the back door open.
If you create 19 attempts with 7 on target away from home with a solid defensive system you should be winning most games, home and away.
