Default Mentality Issue

Keates suggestion in his interview is that we must get more solid at the back to stop conceding goals to get us out of this mess. Surely that’s the wrong mentality...

0-0 no goals conceded = 1 point
5-6 five goals conceded, six scored = 3 points

Basically the ‘we’re going to score one more than you!’ scenario has got to be the only mentality to employ to pick up points and get us out of this mess?!

Also the best form of defence is attack so why the huge focus on shut up shop and invite pressure when actually we need to be assertive?!

Its the Darlington effect coupled with Keates lack of ability to do anything else.

Keates is never going to go for us going all out attack, its not in his nature.

As it stands we hardly dominate a match and just sit back. All it takes is one bit of bad luck or one error and we loose because we struggle to score more than one under our current tactics.

The only thing Keates has going good for him at the moment is that Leighton is back in goal. Im wondering if Dibble hadn't dropped all those blunders if Hughes would still be in the job?

Exactly. When they appointed Keates the board must have been aware that he’d be playing dire, dour football rather than actually attacking.

Every players confidence will be like our league position Rock Bottom. Somehow the management team must try and build up the confidence in the squad to change the losing mentality which has set in. I wonder if they have thought about bringing in a sports psychologist / therapist to look at the situation it could be money well spent. As we all know when you are down the last thing you want is everyone having a go at you. The reasons why it has all gone wrong can be looked into later and no doubt a number of changes will be made in all departments of the club.

Weve been soft as shite for years. Way too nice. We need some proper hard players, Jay Harris, Mark Creighton, Gary Bennett, Peter Ward types. Who in our current team is hard? Jennings maybe, thays about it.

Jennings is all mouth he would shit himself in a fight. Pearson is pretty hard but has clearly downed tools this season. All Hughes signing are lightweight, poor footballers or have attitude issues. What a gross waste of our money.

Pearson, yes. I find it hard to criticise him, as hes lost form due to carrying the team for 3 years. He needs some more leaders around him.
