Surely if this bloke is considered to be a 'dead ball specialist' he has to hit a dead ball well. All I saw yesterday was corners either short to the nearest opposition player, straight to the safe arms of their keeper or so long that a groundsman had to retrieve it. Time to let a more talented 'specialist' have a go. Couldn't be any worse than Ward. Oh and teaching Ward how to mark and defend might save us a few points. He's a 'specialist' at clapping his thighs after we concede every time he gives up chasing.
Trump voters are predominately stupid and masochistic and got what they deserved. When I see what joys Ralph has brought to Saints and the blind devotion shown by some 'supporters' I wonder what Ralph has to do to get the sack.
Yesterday I saw the longest back pass ever performed by Ward Prowse to Forster from the opposition half. I saw the ball given to the throw in appointee with 2 minutes to go rather than throw the bloody thing in and lump it in to the box like any normal team.
This team makes these stupid errors in thinking and back passing and sideways passing due to habits. These habits are instilled by Ralph (or not). The longer we hang on with this manager the longer it will take the squad to re train their minds.
He should have gone after 9-0. He should have gone after record points lost from winning positions. He should have gone after appointing Ward Prowse as 'Captain'. He should have gone after our worst run in the Prem. He should have gone after another 9-0. He should go after yesterday's nervy, toothless, disjointed debacle.
