Have to agree with a few others that I was expecting/hoping(?) for more from SM. But I want to be fair too. It’s 5 games. Valuable experience lost at the back and only partially replaced. Poor start. Still another 5 to go. What worries me is the posts seeing a gulf in performance of the two new boys to our “good” players. Have we become settled with our standard of player and not realised the gulf of our team standard and where we need to be to be a top half team? Hopefully not and we will start to see a pick up in our form and performance. After yesterday it seems the midfield needs to pick their heads up a bit. Firmly believe we still need to strengthen our back four. If they can be much more stoic and hard to break through (which they seemed to do against Wigan, with a little luck too), it might give our midfield a bit more scope to push on.
