5 Questions To Ponder Over!

5 Questions To Ponder Over!

It`s always hard to control the emotions when the club you love is in a downward spiral.

The initial reaction is to lash out, lash out like a wounded lion, but sometimes it`s better to let things fester for a while before putting a few thoughts to paper.

Hopefully, by waiting for ninety minutes since the final whistle went up at St James Park, I`ve done that.

So here goes;-

1 - Why are we so keen to get rid of Frank Lampard? Surely the loss of experience in Essien / Ballack / Meireles shows that you need someone with experience around. Building for the future is one thing but we mustn`t fall into the trap that Aston Villa have and swamp the team with youth!

2 - Would it be a brave thing to do to get rid of the square peg in the round hole, namely Rafa Benitez? It was obvious from Day One that it wasn`t going to be a marriage made in heaven and so that has proven. So what if we get ridiculed by the press for getting rid of the man, we`re currently going nowhere and at our current rate of demise we are not going to finish in the top four!

3 - Does luck even itself out over a season? Decisions went against us today, we could have had a couple of penalties but it wasn`t to be!

4 - Who the hell thinks calling for Roman to go is a sensible shout? Without Roman we`d be nothing, probably gone, probably the first of the big clubs to go under. Without Roman we`d have won feck-all!

5 - If Benitez as manager is bad, what about his side-kicks Holland and Zenden?

Your thoughts, on anther sad day would be most welcome!

Thanks Tommy, I'd probably be not that good but the compensation package when I'm sacked would bring a smile back to my face!

Benitez was brought in 2 improve results as RDM dismissal statement said; even his best of supporters will agree that he has failed in dat aspect. Loss against Corinthians in d club world cup who no disrespect ain't Barca/Bayern nor is Swansea exactly Liverpool/Napoli. He has failed n every1 including Roman knos dat. Look at d number of points we have lost dis season against below botton opposition den u kno we re done 4 with tuby.

returning to question 2 and Springy's response - are we keeping Rafa on just because there's nobody else out there?

if you are in charge uncle merlin , play Lamps as striker , he is a better striker than Fernando .

Roman wants Lamps out cause of the AVB thing. We need a good/pacey/strong ball distributor for the Pivot. Mikel can't pass forward Mata has to drop deep so that Mikel can pass the ball to him.

Capello. I think he'd be the only one interested in doing it on a short term. Takes no crap, would lift the atmosphere for everyone and is a hardman. As roman pays the Russian managers wages he's effectively on our payroll anyway.

The answer is simple in my view, Steve Holland surely has the requisite coaching badges and should be handed the reigns straight away. Then we cross our fingers and hope that Jose is out on his ear in Madrid soon enough.

And I disagree with point 4: roman should get rid of those who advise him.

not sure the Crewe fans who hounded him out would share that view!

Point 4 - bring back Peter Kenyon then?

He's a better fit than Rafa at the moment, for the sake of morale at least, and we don't exactly need a 'tactical genius' to pull us out of our current malaise.

fair enough point - I wonder if Roman wishes he could turn the clock back!

He's probably too proud to admit that shafting Robbie has well and truly shafted our season.
