That's Ralf the consultant. He's not told us exactly what's wrong. He's said the club needs many players. The outcome of his consultancy will be known in the next couple of years so we have to hold the praise or criticism for now.swampash wrote: ↑7 months ago I think we need a bit of a reality check here.
When the hobbit got sacked, we were seventh.
We are now sixth.
Ralf has spelled out, in no uncertain terms, what is wrong with the club and the current squad and what needs to be done.
He has shown what a shambles the scouting has been and presumably had a hand in its reshaping.
He has shown that the current squad are incapable or uninterested in playing modern football.
He’s been totally candid in interviews about the mess we are in and how to fix it.
What’s not to like?
This has been an absolute train wreck of a club for years. Carping on about the results in this context utterly misses the point.
Ralf has given the board and the owners a blueprint for the future. He can’t force them to action it but if they don’t, after the candid way Ralf has spelled out the issues, then it will be clear for all to see where the blame really lies. For that I, for one, am extremely grateful.
Staff are leaving. Idk if this is normal attrition or something more, but it looks like people are being fired, which is good.
His performance as a manager though has been crap. Perhaps our worst ever since Fergie. We can judge that. We can't judge his consultancy yet.
