Passionate discontent
at 09:03 2 Dec 2018

On the bus on the way home, there was some very interesting debates going on about our team, the manager, specific players/ formations as you would expect.

As debates go it became good listening and the general feeling towards our season along with recent results and performances are negative and frustrating with no positives, this is the first time I’ve heard the focus move away from the yanks and HJ & previous owners, with Potter and the players getting plenty of stick. The main points of discontent were:

Team selection
Team formation
Motivation of players
Substitutions
Lack of goal threat
Clueless defending
Potter - a yes man?
Investment in squad
Continuation of firesale in January
Bony? Finnished?
Downturn in performances of Players who have signed new contracts recently
Potters signings
Worrying home form

It seems incredible to me that Potter should be under such pressure given the circumstances he has inherited, however thoughts were his scatter gun approach to team selection and constant in game formation changes ilk of someone without a solid plan/structure in place and recent performances question his ability to motivate the players. Do we have the experience at hand to adjust constantly like this? Can we not have a settled team anymore? With a system of play? Players are looking confused.

The general feeling was picking Fer as captain has been a massive clusterfeck - his laid back, unfit, strolling around has effected the work rate of the team, give the armband to someone who can actually start a game, questions of wether Bony needs game time in the u23 setup before being thrust into the 1st team? Is Potter under pressure from above to play him unfit? Where is Yan Danda? CBR? Obvious Goal threats not being used...

A strong debate questioned - why does Celina (who is obviously scared of his own shadow) get continually picked? He has no physical presence or battling qualities needed for this league. Also was felt that Declan John has played a few games now and has been shocking...

The Trust took a bit of a bashing too with some stating they thought that previous personal agendas of previous board members & cosy relationships during the tackover, allowed HJ & Co to complete their sell off with ease, no honest, open communication at that time to the fans has upset some irrevocably who genuinely dismiss the Trust as a fans voice at board level.

General feelings were the short term future is looking bleak for sure...
Can Potter reverse this? Or can anybody shed some positive light our way?
