Still got alot of faith in Kenny and find it mad that some seemingly want him out but at the same time i have alot of questions and alot of things i dont understand.
I cant remember the last time i've seen so many decisions from the manager and the club as a whole that have left me completely baffled. Kenny just like any manager needs time, we need to back him and give him time to properly put his stamp on the team iron out the mistakes and get this team not just playing how he wants them to but getting results from it aswell. I've seen us play some brilliant football at times this season but our main problems were not addressed when it was necessary and it has in my opinion cost us dear. Chance after chance has gone begging and i've lost count of the amount of times our side has looked about as solid in the centre as a rolo, for me this could have been dealt with but there could be a number of reasons why it was not so i have some understanding towards the management team.
Some people need to learn that it takes time to build a successful side, its not something that just instantly happens overnight, yes mistakes where made in the transfer market in the summer but surely we should be looking to what will be done to remedy that this summer rather than just dwelling on something that cannot be changed now. I wasn't happy with the january window atall but this is just me, there are problems in our side that i have been frustrated about for some time and they haven't been dealt with but i am willing to wait to see if we will actually see to them before i fly off the handle about them. Patience is key and of course its incredibly hard, after the game today i nearly threw my laptop across the room with rage, losing to wigan was infuriating and i hate seeing bad results from us as much as anyone but still we need to support the manager.
I really dont think Kenny should go and i find it mad some do, i would hate nothing more than to see my team become another chelsea who sack managers the instant things go wrong. How long do i think he should get ? I honestly don't know, how do you just put a timescale on something like that so simply ? so many factors come into play throughout the course of a managers tenure that can affect decisions. Granted we see some positive changes made and the club is going in the right direction i am happy. The recent signings have brought mixed results but im interested to see how Kenny will look to rectify this rather than just focusing on all the negatives.
I'm rather pessimistic when it comes to our team, i don't seem myself as a bad fan and i tend to avoid making kneejerk comments as soon as something bad happens. I'm mainly pessimistic because i think we make too many mistakes over and over before realising it and actively seeking to change the problem at hand. The amount of times we've needed the exact same kind of player for certain positions and im still yet to see a single one of them signed is the kind of thing i mean, it makes me want to rip my hair out but i don't see it changing and so far i've been right, i wish i wasn't but this kind of thing draws immediate pessimism from me in certain situations.
I fully support kenny but as i've said many times i will never be the type to just agree with anything and everything a manager says and does regardless of who they are. Some of his decisions baffle me and in my opinion they need to change if we are to see more reward on the pitch, without even going into the whole buying and selling players debate, focusing solely on our current players there are a few things i feel are doing more harm than good on the field.
Henderson playing on the right, it clearly does not work. It doesn't suit him, it doesn't suit the team. He should never be out there, just as Lucas should never be out there, just as spearing should never be out there.
Gerrard at centre mid in a 2 man midfield, again it clearly doesn't work. He needs to either be in a midfield three or playing attacking mid, simple as. He has the discipline, i disagree when people say he doesn't, but it does not suit his natural game atall.
Suarez upfront alone, play him from wide. He looks like a different player coming in from the wide positions and links up with his teammates so much more effectively when he's starting out wide. If he was finishing more consistently then by all means he would be great to start upfront as a lone striker but he seems to be more effective in the wide areas.
CB's at fullback, it hinders us going forward and dropping back. They should only be used there if it is the ONLY option available. I mean only if Enrique, Aurelio, Robinson, Kelly, Flanagan and Johnson are all unavailable should there be a CB at left back. Or only if its an injury and we have no more substitutes available/no fullbacks atall on the bench.
Theres so much more to touch on but people are being too extreme right now in my opinion, Kenny shouldn't walk or be fired but at the same time Kenny isn't above all kinds of criticism because constructive criticism does exist and not everyone with a difference of opinion to the manager is being disrespectful.
Kenny can take us where we need to go but as much as he needs to look at his team and whether they are doing enough to get us there he needs to look at himself and some of his decisions (and i dont mean one off decisions).
