Agree with Cars that we don't need a Plan B as such – as it's good to pass well and dominate possession. But we DO need a Phase 2... ie, do something with it by crossing more often and moving off the ball. I also agree that we MUST do more to win the ball back and prevent crosses coming in.

My biggest worry is that RM is not looking willing to change, and wants us to play our way out of this slump/crisis – and the players don't look convinced.

Best chance of a win tomorrow is if the crowd get behind them. We'll know after 10 mins if the players are up for it... if they're not, we're screwed... and the chance RM does or doesn't deserve will be getting slimmer.

I'm going there to support my team... whatever happens to the manager

Spot on analysis by Lee Carsley. The shrewd voice of experience talking. We have never really replaced him.

Trouble is though Cars, who is going to be the man to stand up and be counted?

We don’t have Lee Carsley anymore or a massive character like Tim Cahill or even the likes of Gravesen, Stubbs, Weir, Watson or a Richard Gough, a man to start a argument on the pitch and not be scared of disagreement.

The manager has already stated no change at any cost to our style so I’m afraid there you have it...

We are not going to improve any time soon.
