Thread: Memo to Morison following Sunderland's play-off win

  1. #1

    Memo to Morison following Sunderland's play-off win

    Extracted from BBC website:

    "Norwich and Preston boss Neil's influence since arriving at the club in February can certainly be measured in statistics, with one defeat in 16 games and a play-off surge which has culminated in a return to the second tier.

    "(Alex Neil) identified there were too many young players in the team and wanted more experience.

    Simon Pryde told BBC Sport: "He tightened the defence, changed the shape, enjoyed feisty yet good natured exchanges with journalists and - most importantly - got results."

    They will want him sacked if they are bottom 6 come next march

    Sunderland get huge crowds compared to the rest of the league, they should never have taken that long to get promoted by income alone.

    Have to admit, with the recent departures, I'm looking for a bit of experience to come in. The team is starting to take shape, but we will need some knowledgable heads in there, and also someone to take charge. Any idea who will be captain yet?

    Why does everyone assume Morison will pack the team with kids? We had a lot of players that were making too much money and too old. They had to go.

    There will be loads of players like of similar experience and ability to flint and ralls available as the summer gets underway. Loads.

    This summer set to see the most unemployed footballers for a long time. Just depends how much they want to earn really and may have to have a reality check.

    It's all about getting the right balance. I don't for one minute think that Morison will play a team full of kids. He's pretty switched on, very focussed and seems determined to construct a side that will at the very least be competitive next season and hopefully a lot more.

    Nelson is a defensive liability and I will be disappointed if he is in the first team next season

    Is that the side that lost 4 of its last 6 and only gained points from sides we finished above?

    Have a look at the player ratings think you will find he was one of our better performers

    Is there another way of telling how a player has performed apart from some random guy saying he's crap

    If Curtis Nelson is one of your better performers you're either in League One or you're in trouble.

    I think you will agree it hasn't been our finest season, not helped by managerial changes and poor performances. Statistics prove that Nelson was one of our better players. I know you like stats look it up

    Re: Memo to Morison following Sunderland's play-off win

    Morison seems to be concentrating on getting players in the 25 to 329 age group (the sort of ages where players are generally thought to be at their peak) in what seems the right way to try and improve on last season where, essentially, we had a mixture of youngsters in their first full season in first team contention and too many underperforming senior players who were thirty or beyond.

    We don't need any more than one or two players past thirty.
