    People on this forum reflect the way society is these days......I want and expect it NOW......Before the season started their was a thread asking where we would finish at the end of the season. Most said they would well happy with mid table. Yes its shite when we lose but chill everyone. we will be stronger next season.

    Exactly.

    Every time we do okay this thread disappears and then pops its head up again when we wobble.

    If anyone wants him gone can they not at least have the conviction to stick by their guns and keep the thread going whatever?

    Yep and I too still think he talks sense in his post match interviews. Don't always agree with what he says, but on the whole, yes. He makes sense and I understand why he does things.

    Today for instance, many on here were annoyed and angry that he took Enobakhare off and thought the decision to be madness, buy MR explained that he felt he was slowing the play down too much and he wanted a faster tempo. Sounds perfectly logical to me.

    Many question as to why we keep losing it straight after half time, but then no-one from CWR asks him the question, so you can hardly blame Mark Robins for that.

    I see the same lack of tactical sense in robins whether we win or lose I just don’t bother writing it

    Sounds a bit of an easy cop out to me, that. ;)

    Rather than still say 'I want Robins out' after a number of wins in row and have posters say 'what the hell are you smoking', I'll just say I could be bothered to write it. In fact, I am never bothered to write it unless we go on a bad run'.[​IMG]

    Okey dokey.

    All I want is for MR to get hold of the right centre forward (I think Max would have made a real difference as a target man this year, but we'll never know, or what sort of player he will come back as - fingers crossed) and then he needs to find adequate replacements for Sterling and Luke Thomas (going to be difficult). He has already started preparing for Centre back positions, which I applaud (albeit they could turn out to be a Gary Gillespie or a Peter Rammage !!) Will be an interesting summer recruitment.

    He does try and play quick one two's and both me and my mate were saying Enobakhare was hanging on to the ball too long.

    Unfortunately his execution isn't the best at times though, he looks like Hazard so should play like him

    The point is, personally I'm happy with where we are in the division, given that it's our first season back in L1. What I'm unhappy about is;
    1. losing games from winning positions
    2. being out-thought tactically
    3. the lack of fight I have seen recently when we go behind
    Maybe we are missing Doyle more than we realize regarding point 3
    We have had two good runs, winning 5 and 3 in succession so we can beat almost any team in this league.
    Nobody expects to win every game but this season is turning into a missed opportunity IMO.

    He won’t be going anywhere mate
    evrry time I see Chaplin run I think if Doyle played up front that’s how he would play he’s so slow in everything he does

    This is what I think (other than the Doyle part). Are we in a decent position? Yes. But I don’t think robins is a very good manager because of his shocking in game decision making. I’m not totally sure that him going would be the best thing for us at this moment, but at the same time I don’t like the idea that he’s going to be man responsible for leading us to the championship in the near future

    It would have got bumped if we had lost today and it would have been within about 12 seconds of the final whistle to boot, so may as well bump it when we win.

    Did you feel the tactics were much different today? Or same old?

    Same strikers missing chances but at least one went in, so tactics were all good.
    In Robin's we trust.
