Personally I think we missed on Weidwald and Lassoga (loan anyway) but the rest look promising
The contracts arent down to TC though, thats Orta's fault or Radz, cant blame TC for wasting money there.faaip wrote: ↑Tue Feb 06, 2018 2:59 pmYes I know I've said Barnsley are one of the worst team I've seen and that does come down to the coach. But I've never said he's the one and did say that a change of scenery can work wonders...
I know that you and Weasel liked TC as a coach and think he just needs the right players to turn it around but you've no evidence for that ...plus how much would it cost us to ditch a few 4 year contracts (That everyone was raving about as good business sense earlier) and get in the right players plus who are the right players?
Personally I think the players are a top 6 squad and just need a good coach to bring that out but that's for another thread
Certain players should have never been given those contracts, but again not down to TC.
You are correct, i do think TC would have got us up with Wood, Taylor and Bartley, but we shall never know.
As i have no evidence for that, there is no evidence to suggest Hecky can get anymore out of a depleted squad missing key players either.
Anyway, as long as he keeps Alioski in the first 11 im happy
I meant to edit the last paragraph of Faaip's post as I don't think we have enough to make a challenge for the top six. What with all our suspensions/injuries a play-off place is out of our reach I feel.
I just hope Heck can make us competitive & stops the rot
Orta's signings have been generally poor in the main
A lot of good things being said about him and the hope is that he can come in and is able to fit the players into a formation that gets the best out of them and that as the players return from injuries and suspensions he manages to get the best out of them. I do feel that on paper we have a decent team but the huge thing lacking is the consistency and a real playing identity (we go fro looking like a great passing team 1 week to being unable to pass 5 yards the next week). The promising thing is that at the very least it doesn't seem as sh*t an appointment as it first looked (the impression being we were getting a manager that was probably on the verge of the sack at his underperforming club). They seem to have identified him and with them being willing to pay compensation, rather than just hiring another manager from on the managerial scrapheap, they must rate him. Time will tell!
