A few months back most of us were calling for Allardyce’s head. In 3 games we are now sitting mid table and safety looking promising. The board will look at his performance over a season but if you were G&S would you keep him for another season?
One thing I will say is that we still have issues. Sitting 10th is a fantastic position to be in but what I noticed against Norwich was that we cant pass, we cant keep possession and still our strikers cant score. These issues need to be dealt with but year after year we still have the same problems.
The way the team is set up it just isn’t geared for a striker/s to score goals. Plus the team have to be drilled on the training ground to pass clinically, keep the ball and close down the opposition! I’m just scared we are going to have the same issues next season, what we could all clearly see was when the defence wasn’t there we were dead and buried and they have kept us in this league.
If for some reason our defence goes a bit pear shaped next season we need to know that we can score our way out of trouble. Will we finally sort it next season? Well with the way the team is set up no we wont ever sort these issues out…
