I have been reading a lot on forums how we should be playing more entertaining football. Just before big Sam arrived we would of been happy to watch us just play football, let alone more entertaining football. The RS across the park play entertaining football yet since big Sam's arrival we have amassed more points than them playing the way we are playing, yet some of you want us to change.

Since the arrival of big Sam some people want us to start defending from the front, otherwise Sam is a poor manager. Would someone be kind enough to actually write down exactly what is meant by defending from the front please, because I am sure most people have no idea what is meant. Does it mean you are not happy with our defending and want us to change?

We have only conceded 2 goals and only dropped 2 points, You need to remember Sam only has the same players as we had when we were losing games and became tangled in a relegation battle. Over the last 5 games that Sam has been in charge we have conceded less goals than Man city over the same time period, yet people want us to defend from the front as City do, whatever defending from the front means.

I admit we are far from the finished article at this moment in time and it is very doubtful that things will improve greatly in the next transfer window, it will improve over time and will probably take a few seasons to do so, it took City years of building to get where they are now.

For some reason the supporters on here and other forums are always bleating on about how we should change, they look for the tiniest reason to moan about the club instead of enjoying the fact that we are no longer in a relegation fight, we can hold our heads up to the RS and we have a bit of a chance of getting something out of tomorrow's game (even if only a point )

I will not be bothering to reply to any replies on this post because the negativity and garbage from some on here means it just is not worth my effort doing so. I will be on live chat tomorrow as their are some good debates at times with very little negativity.

Rant over as I am going back to my crate of humbugs.

You won't get a prezzie from Santa mate.

We all love the results Grumpy and as long as we evolve the football slowly over the rest of the season I will be as happy as I am now. It is a building job for Sam and most of us understand that but, we can't go through the season giving every team 70% of the ball or we will need one hell of a defence. As long as Sam gets the team keeping and moving the ball in the middle of the park we'll be fine. What I will say is we can't do that unless Schneids gets back to his best or we sign a ball playing centre mid.

Agree mate but early doors yet, but no one can fail see how we have moved out the mess we were in a month or so ago thanks to Big Sam and co.

{Ed025's Note - i agree GB they certainly have..

Results first. It has to be. Then progress, development and incorporation of stylish attractive entertaining football. can't go from getting turned over to winning in style just like that. I think the tenures of koeman and martinez have tought us so much.

{Ed025's Note - im quite happy to see us grinding out results at the moment tit but i do want the quality to improve in our general play, this will hopefully come sooner rather than later mate..

Same as that Ed mate, as you say results then good footy, it will come as the players get their confidence back under Big Sam, also with the window coming up as well think our new Boss will do well mate.
