    nottingram got a reaction from LittleEatonRam in Cocu in or out?   
    There are only two consistently good teams in this division.
    An incredibly well funded WBA (who we made look very very poor) who also have a great manager and Leeds who somehow persuaded one of the greatest coaches of their generation come and manage them.
    Consistency is not an easy thing to stumble upon

    People have short memories over how bad last season performances were at times. I think it is startling how differently last season would be viewed if Roos hadn’t had a stormer away at Bristol City. The good succeeding performances inc. Leeds away are thus the most recent recollections of that season.
    Bolton, Blackburn, Ipswich, Rotherham, Leeds, Millwall were all utterly horrendous and no different to this year

    Kind of emphasises what a difficult position he is in, when the people who can make his life harder with their criticism are so conflicted on the best course of action

    I am very much Cocu in.
    However, I really don’t think he is helping himself at the moment. To a very large extent his hands are tied but some of his decisions are confusing to say the least.
    Maybe I am being an idiot and don’t know what I’m on about. But surely it is now obvious we aren’t going up or down. Surely it is better to decide on some sort of system - be that 4231 or 433 or 352 or a diamond or whatever, and make it a complete priority to start having players in the team who will be here next season. If that means a Bielik, Sibley, Knight midfield so be it - surely those players will be all the better for 6 months of being allowed to make mistakes while we’re not going anywhere. It’s not like by next August they’re going to be much better. Sibley is the best player on the pitch pretty much every time he steps on it, so what is he learning? Let him curb his aggression in the first team when he’s got Ben Pearson or Kalvin Phillips winding him up, if that’s his issue. What that does mean is an attitude change would be needed from a large proportion of fans. 
     
    Anyway, I like Cocu. Find him interesting to listen to but I would like him to go back to what he was doing at the start of the season. The West Brom game stands out to me. It’s become clear they’re going to get promoted and we were the better team comfortably, with Knight and Buchanan playing.

    I for one am very surprised that a poor starting XI has been chosen. It is almost like it’s a poor set of players Cocu has to pick from isn’t it

    Why are Dawes and Ramage blithering on about 5-3-2?
    Unless I am very mistaken at no point was that a 5-3-2 today. Just because they decided it was at 2pm they just go on about it. Complete pair of *********.
