Season given up on too soon?

Post by radebe88 » Sun Mar 18, 2018 7:36 am

I have voiced my disgust in other threads about Heckingbottom not playing Lasogga and on other occasions leaving out the likes of Saiz, Hernandez and Alioski and it makes me feel he gave up along time ago.

However, I think we did more than enough against Reading and Sheffield Wednesday to get 6 points. Playing Lasogga (the one player that can find the back of the net) would have helped that cause.

If we had won those games we would only have been 7 points from 6th place. I know that is still so doing but still would have given us something to play for.

Maybe just heart breaking that our season ended the second PH took over

He's not been here long enough to have given up, I'm not happy with the way things are though but I suppose in reality we're not good enough to go up.

On current form we’re not good enough to stay in this league :cry:

PH was a sign of giving up imo, no club serious about promotion appoint the bloke who has 1 win in 16.

Or who has taken only 27 points of the last 90 available.

We gave up too late if anything. For anyone without rose tainted gasses it was obvious after the second good run ended by losing against lower positioned sides that we had fucked up.
We got a bit lucky with those two very good runs...without them we would be battling to stay up.

I’d like to know what PH was told at his interview. “We believe we are a top 6 side and we’re not playing to our full potential” is my guess. If this is the case surely he cannot be at the helm for the start of next? Rads needs to make the hardest decision of his short football career, sack Orta and PH or get the next yes man in for more of the same.

Did anyone seriously get carried away by the good start? The test was responding to the first hiccup and we failed miserably. As we did to the second. Now we are in detention. If there were more games left we would be looking at expulsion. As it is we are in special measures.

Not seriously but I admit to hoping, until the Millwall game and aftermath.
To December and another hope, but nowhere near seriously by then - just awaiting the drop of the other foot.
