Afraid I'm with the majority. He can't see we are too exposed in midfield the way we play and as a result, the defence looks even worse. Time to change and get someone in who can get the most out of a talented squad.

Personally, I'd offer Benitez as much as he wants to come here....

Absolute no brainier if possible. Can’t see it though.

Thought I’d change agenda this week and not dwell on the obvious negatives. We’ve heard them before and hopefully things will change quickly. Now.

I went to St Mary’s today, the in laws are season ticket holders and had a spare so I thought I’d keep them company. They played WestHam and lost 1 nil but our boy Ryan Fredericks played. I also watched Seri twice over the last few weeks and thought I’d feed back briefly how both got on.

Ryan Fred’s. Actually was surprised by how limited he was today against a very poor saints team. Saints were dreadful but Ryan was largely pegged back in his own half ans didn’t make many of his signature pacey get in behind runs. He also looked a bit shakey oarticually second half against Djenpo. He was also up against a really tame Bertrand who barely got into final third. All in all, quite a mature performance but not the Fred’s that was busting box to box all game. Happy for him doing well though.

Seri. This is brief but I must say, I was really surprised at how lazy he was. So many times he just let his men run past him and he just didn’t track runners at all.

The only thing I took from the saints game was, we actually play better football even in these rubbish times than they do....pretty damning stuff, I wouldn’t be surprised if we’ll be playing them next year in championship.

He is a 6’2”  division one level defender at this moment in time.
He just doesn’t seem to do anything to suggest otherwise at the moment.

You are bang on and to make matters worse we have had some of these players for some time now so know full well their limitations. It is a disgrace that the defence is this bad. There is just no excuse. Bad buying and ultimately poor management which has been unable to install any sense of togetherness or mental/physical resistence amongst this dysfunctional crew.
I want to list the players that are surplus to requirements but the list is now too long and it's far quicker to focus on the retention list. That list however is probably now in danger of being a "get me out of here" list !!
Just for the record but its obvious:-
Decordova-Reid (i appreciate its early days but he has shown enough to me despite being played out of position)
Rodak (still think we need a GK but showing great potential)
Arter (still think he could be good for us)

As for the rest either the the best is behind you (Odoi/McDonald) or you have always been crap (endless list ......

I agree with your list apart from

Arter. imo a liability and not every talented. I would bring through Harrison Reed but give him the ball more. But that is down to the poor tactics of Parker.

Apart from when we play the easier lower or midtable games, can anyone really see things turning round?
So why carry on as we are now with a manager/coach who repeats his selection/playing tactics week after week with little effect.
However,if a change is made it has to be someone who has a record of Championship promotions who can change of organize/motivate our players.

Rodak, he made several good saves no-one else was worthy of it.

TC has been class for us for years. It's the jokers that have arrived in the past 2 seasons.

Cav and Knock are on loan from their clubs. For a reason.
Beginning to wonder about about TC tbh. Not sure who would want him. His commitment is not there for me to see.

Stephjo and Mitro, yes. Awesome week In, week out.
