Maybe he sees it in training. Bout time we trusted him, he's got us this far against all odds. I was his biggest critic, but its precarious now, make wholesale changes...lose a couple of games cos we do and it's over. Personally think he's dragging every point he can out of his first choices in the hope itll get us over the line. Yes that's a gamble, but atm its working.
Nobody is asking for wholesale changes. Just sensible use of the squad available to him rather than reverting to the same nine or ten players every week. Asking why Morris barely featured during his time here, why Manning has started less than half a dozen league games (and naturally gets dropped again tonight) or why we're sending on a just back from injury 36 year old instead of a pacy young forward we just spent £700k on is only natural.
Possibly fair questions to ask, but perhaps he feels wer hanging on for points with the best he thinks we have and is reluctant to change it. We are still picking up points so in effect he's getting it right. As someone has mentioned there are at least 4/5 other sides with stronger squads. His gamble may not pay off....but so far its working.

I think Lowe has been worth the investment, but like we all know he's not the striker we're seeking, if we go up and he plays on the left or right and we use the promotion money to buy a proper number 9, he could be something else is all im saying, but what do I know

we shouldnt be hanging on though saint, we're pretty much second and playing like this against lesser teams ffs. We dont even set up to try and win a game? We dont even try and play. Everyone on our bench is good enough to be at least rotation level in this divison. Manning is lightyears ahad of Bidwell and he plays how many games?

i agree, i think he s brilliant but he'sfucking knackered. This is what im saying, he gives us nothing from 70 mins onwards due to fatigue, why are we not even trying whittaker/ariola? There is no rationale to it.

There is to me, coops has said they're not ready, maybe they weren't his choices , maybe they were, sometimes it doesn't work out

The midfield has to be grimes/ Fulton/ smith.
The front 2 offer us nothing. So if you give Whittaker at leat 20/25 mins he can’t be any worse BUT you might just find an answer.

Ive enjoyed watching Grimes Fulton develop this year, but theres no creativity, but there is defensive safety, tough call
