The players reach a point where they visibly stop putting in the appropriate level of effort, results go south and the clamour for change of management becomes irresistible. Yesterday’s game against Southampton was painful to watch – no urgency to press and regain the ball and no concerted pressure in the last twenty minutes. Our opponents are in pretty shocking form at the moment yet they came to OT and looked thoroughly comfortable with their manager making substitutions in the last ten minutes geared towards winning the game – there is no fear factor left. Shocking attitude and lack of hunger amongst our squad, who have basically downed tools since the derby defeat. The players are rotten.
