n’t think there have been any/many complaints about the 3 points, they were badly needed.
I never said they were, people are complaining about how they were gained.
The worrisome thing for me was that we could easily have lost that game if it wasn’t for Watson. It’s good Watson had a stellar performance, but we can’t rely on the goalkeeper winning it for us in most games.
Sure but a goalkeeper is one of the team’s 11 players and is allowed to play well. Even better to see Rory Watson finally show some real promise and deliver a match-winning performance. That should be a positive for me.
cassidystash is right. Most see someone like Eisa, for example, as one of our best players and I think it would be rather contentious to say otherwise, so when he’s left out and the replacement/resulting performance is no better then there are bound to be questions from fans. Sure, we’re not privy to training and ideas of the coaches and managers, but we’re allowed to form an opinion based on what we see. We’re supporters of the club, but that doesn’t mean we need to shut off our own critical faculties for blind cheering on of whatever the manager or players do. We should strive to be measured in criticism, and sometimes many aren’t, but I don’t see harm in holding an opinion if argued politely and reasonably enough.
Presumably, you think Cox is not an idiot? So shouldn’t we trust him to make the right decisions for the team? Sure, if things go badly for a long period of time, then by all means question him but doesn’t he deserve the benefit of the doubt for now?
Look, I do get it, we’ve had a succession of managers who’ve been, at best, conservative and at worse outright negative. But people carping on about “attacking football” when we’ve just won one game, the first in 8 matches and only fourth in 16 league games this year, is just a bit premature in my opinion.
I hope you’re right in that things do change, but try to be a bit more forgiving of some who vent, especially after the emotional time of match day. Yes, we don’t have to watch, but given I pay for the games on ifollow, I feel like I should, and I want to pay because it helps the club in these times.
That’s fine but that patience & forgiveness needs to be shown to the team and its management too. Give them a chance.
