Vital 1st Team Regular
Whilst accepting that we have weaknesses which have to be fixed if we are to get back to anywhere the top four, is the squad we have really weaker in terms of ability than Shef Utd, Wolves or Burnley, all of whom are likely to finish above us. I don't think so, and that for me says that Mourinho is not capable of getting the best out of his squad, either through lack of motivation, or tactical approach, probably a combination of both. If the player power argument is valid, it doesn't alter the fact that he's not the right man for the job, because he clearly is a significant part of the problem. My argument is somewhat negated insofar as we will in all probability lose some of our best players shortly, and will no longer have a stronger squad than the teams mentioned. That being the case, Mourinho is not the manager imo to rebuild a squad on a limited transfer budget, and a requirement to bring out the full potential in academy players.
I know I’m in danger of joining the sack the manager brigade , I know the sensible thing is to give him time , but I just want to see some glimmer that he can be the one .
