Lost The Dressing Room

We dont need top players to beat shite like killie away ffs, we just need a manager to be dynamic and change things as he sees a game changing, 

The reason i brought up what eck done is because he was a new manager who had a different approach to the game, he changed the same players failing under advocaat and won 5 trophies in 18months,

People seem to think a new manager needs a whole new squad, they dont, hell gerrard has even shown that by the improvements in the likes of jack and morelos

I await a new manager to work wonders then.....the manager is taking the majority of the flack but there are too many players out of form to completely lay all blame at his door

The club have some stability for the first time in a long time.  Removing the manager and coaching staff would undo that.  I don’t even know who we would replace them with.  The job is no doubt seen as a poisoned chalice by many who won’t touch it.

3-4 quality additions midfield to front could completely change this team.  That’s what Gerrard needs to go and get.  Brining in Jones, Barker, Hastie, and Stewart last summer was a waste of time because he won’t play them.  

Aribo and Helander aside most of last summers signings have made little to no impact.  

Aribo hasn't done much to be fair..

Who is too blame for constantly playing players who are not performing? How long did it take to realise Ojo was terrible. Why does Aribo keep playing??

I'm not so sure he's lost the dressing room, I think he's unsettled a few with the rumours of certain people leaving at the winter window and coupled with poor performances it seems like that.

Listen if those shitebags can't take criticism from the manager then talk of them not playing for him really looks bad for them. It's a disgrace if that's the case. They are pro footballers and need to get the finger out, roll their sleeves and get the big boy pants on and start fucking playing the game.

Who does he bring in?

Our squad is very limited for depth hence the reason he keeps playing the same players who are out of form

I have no idea what the fuck is wrong with us but something so clearly is.

Could the players be as scunnered as the fans are of all the shocking decisions against us time and time again? Could it be something to do with Dubai? Maybe the overall squad simply isn't good enough and too many of them simply can't handle the pressure. I'd find it hard to believe that some players can't handle hearing Gerrard tell them they're shite but who knows. Ejaria certainly couldn't handle fuck all up here for example.

We were a well oiled machine before January, home and away, with a distinct style of play and now we're truly unrecognizable and struggle regardless of who we're playing. 

Gerrard saying he doesn't know how to stop Hearts from happening again which was a bit worrying, Beale saying something like it doesn't matter how we win as long as win, it's just bizarre what's happening/happened to us. It's not just one or two off form, as a whole unit something has changed.

You can point to all the excuses in the world, the ref's, the dressing room, fatigue but the simple fact is the good ole tactics need changed. The tims were on the ropes before the winter break. Switched to 3-5-2 and won the league 3 weeks later. 2 up top for me for the rest of the season.

They won today after changing from their 352.

4312 for me. Haji in behind Morelos and Kamberi. Full backs are providing all the width anyway so losing the wide men doesn't really make a difference.

Very limited for depth, he's brought in 28 players 😂😂, if its limited in depth then its his fault,

If anything that shows Lennon knows how to change things up to win games, and tactically has different plans for different situations, something Gerrard seems to struggle with.

What do you do with Kent then? Whether we like it or not his price tag means he plays every week.

The distinct style of play has been sussed and countered, teams are more than happy to allow our fullbacks to throw balls into the box all day knowing we only have one player up there, opponents are more than happy knowing no one in our team looks to take them on, so all they need to do is defend their zone from a forward pass and we inevitably pass it sideways

Fuck that 3 deep midfielder shite, 4141 for me, hagi and arfield in behind morelos, kent and aribo/any other winger out wide, stretch teams, run at men, take them on and beat them

Agree but fact is we’re now playing him in the hope that he can have a good game not expectation.

Why would there be a big line of world class managers desperate to take over from Gerrard now, when at the time Gerrard got the job out of nowhere the list had the likes of Alex Neil, Steve Clarke etc. on it?

I dunno thankfully its not my job but I think we need change

How has the manager taken the majority of the flak, the same players that went to parkhead and went toe to toe and beat the tarriers, the same players that have lost only once in 14 euro games and now are in the last 32 are being called shitebags, cowards, lacking in pride, attitude etc 

Gerrard is getting off lightly compared to the guys he's sending out to do the same stuff on a game by game basis even though it doesn't work now

Is that not the director of football's job.....granted I genuinely think Gerrard has had certain targets but don't be kidded thinking they are all Gerrard signings

Strength in depth allows him to. He brought on internationalists. Our squad doesnt really offer the same options and whilst Gerrard needed quantity as well as quantity since he came in theres been too many failures.

So they dont play the same way every game? Wonder if we could try that, see if it throws other teams off

We should play Kent as a winger imo.  That's the solution. Except when hes rank and rightly getting subbed.

We don't overwhelm teams anymore, or defend from the front in packs like we used to,10 men behind the ball every week or not. Played a massive part in our success. Out of possession we're night and day. We don't tend to play off Morelos as much as we did near the start of the season either.

Again not the point, jones for example has played this league before, yet cannot get a sniff while others are toiling, 3 right backs in the squad yet he continued to play tav through his bad spell, 4 centre halves yet doesn't drop goldson no matter how many fuck ups he has, 

Little depth yet we have 3 players out on loan playing at decent levels
