URZZZZleon I’m not for sacking the manager.
I’ll repeat what I said when Bowen got sacked. Continually sacking managers is not a way to build a sustainable team with an identity and a plan.
He’s got to have more time to at least try to achieve the above. Can Pauno do it? is the question for me.
Struggling to see an identity/plan here currently. Can’t build something that doesn’t exist. Most teams have a defined style of play, would struggle to define ours
Time isn’t necessarily the contributing factor, just look at Mowbray under Blackburn for example, three successive seasons where they’ve got worse, Johnson at Bristol etc etc. They became pretty stale after too long. Not that Paunovic is at that stage yet mind, just finding it strange with comments of “should be given at least three years” for example
Personally like to see the manager learn from mistakes primarily. Currently, he’s too inflexible and too slow to react and most likely we won’t be going anywhere until he fixes it because our in game adaptations aren’t of the required standard. 0 shots on target up until the 80th minute and he’s made one sub? It ain’t good enough
Yep give him three years isn’t going to happen. The first three months of next season will be crucial for him. He has to be more flexible. We only played one upfront last night in a must win game. Only Joao can play that role. Puscas really struggled.
Even then he waited far too long to make subs leaving it to the final twenty minutes.
I also agree we lack identity. We have literally gone backwards. Too often we go back and sideways taking an age to get the ball into dangerous positions at which point we then become too intricate.
Lots to work on but let’s not forget the guy has had no money to spend. He deserves another crack at this.
