Truly staggering that a team safely tucked up in a mid-table position, with nothing to play for, doesn’t play. I’m pretty sure this is the first time this has ever happened in the history of football; I’m behind all of these people demanding we change a manager because this should never happen again. It would have been so much better if we had been battling relegation for the entire campaign so, clearly, yet another manager has to go.
I can’t begin to imagine what goes through the heads of players who hope to pass a transfer medical in the summer, out there playing like “ooer, I hope I don’t get injured or anything”. Has any other team ever played like their heads were on holiday? I very much doubt it. This is Puel’s fault entirely.
I’m surprised at the muted response. We should be organising demonstrations in the car park and refusing to accept any further free items (bar beer) until the situation is resolved to all of our satisfaction. Finding someone that makes everybody happy might be tough but we can do it if we actually try. I think we should get Paul Ince in.
People are morons.
