fiasco is a great word. It's just looking more and more like we need a change somewhere in our management/boardroom to me. As Plastic mentioned about trust being important - I personally don't have faith in Monk as a manager at the moment. I didn't want him when he was given the job, but he had started to make me believe he was the right man. However, down to selections, tactics and substitutions, I don't see any improvement from him. Yes we are in 9th place, but I can count on one hand the number of games where I've been satisfied we've played to the best of our abilities. I'm also losing trust with the board over the way they are handling the contracts they are handing out. Players are like any celebrity - they crave to feel wanted. Especially the strikers. Clubs know this - if we want to keep Gomis, then we should be sorting this out before he feels the need to go on TV saying these things. We are not Man U or Barcelona where they can say "No big deal - you can leave - there's plenty more to take your place", because they don't have to work too hard to get the top players to come to them. We do - we are apparently promising players certain game time to get them to sign, because we can't offer the money others can. We are then allegedly going back on these promises. The knock on effect is that any new player who signs, and is given a promise of game time will simply not believe it as this is the second time this issue has come to light ( Gomis, Ki). We can easily slate Gomis for not scoring 6 against Chelsea, because surely that's all we needed to do to win that game. The reality is that we should be truly judging him after 5 or 6 more games leading the line. Touble is it looks like he'll be gone before we get to see if he's any good.
