Fans Criticism Debate
Some of the rubbish I read about Town and our new manager makes me so angry
Why? It's just folk being passionate about their game and about their town.
Being stupid more like. Buckley was criticised for not talking and poor old Lawrence is criticised for talking too much. what do people want?
To have their cake and eat it I suppose. Lawrence has said a few things but they haven't happened yet, like a premiership loan striker. I guess a few folk will only listen when the words become actions
So what about tactics. Seems like half the crowd against Gillingham know how town ought to be playing, yet the only person that's got a win out of them in 6 months has been Lawrence. Is he credited? No he's criticised for his tactics.
So they're worried he played too open a defence and we'll get stuffed by better teams.
That is twaddle. Never mind the better teams, we play one game at a time. Perhaps against the next team he'll play a different tactic still. Give him a chance, he isn't daft. Buckley was slated for being boring and now Lawrence is getting it in the neck for being adventurous.
People wanted a change from Buckley. Not a change every week. Just a different and more purposeful attacking style.
And I'm sure Lawrence will end up with one. He's still waiting on Handyside, R. Smith, Gally and Donovan you know.
So what is it you want?
For people to give the new manager a chance. So far he's won one lost one in the league which is mid table stuff. Knock him once we've been hammered back to the bottom but until then show a bit of belief and optimism.
And if we start winning a few more games?
Then get your arses down to Blundell Park. A four and a half thousand crowd isn't helping anybody either. I've almost come to the conclusion that this town deserves a second or third division team at best.
Strong talk. But you may be right.
