Players to Blame for City's Plight

Players to Blame for City's Plight

Whenever a club goes through a bad patch, it's often the Board and managers who cop most of the flak from the fans, but our recent web poll has bucked the trend. We asked:

Who bears most responsibility for City's failing season so far?

The Players ? 65%

The Manager ? 22%

The Board ? 12%

The Horse ? 1%


The result is an overwhelming thumbs down for the players and bears out what John Wardle has said about unacceptable performances.

Having said that, I would respectfully suggest to the Board that it's not just the players who are to blame and that the lukewarm investment and ambition of some of the Directors over the years may also have a tad to do with our current situation.

What is for sure though is that Pearce is working his socks off and fighting for his managerial life and if only the players and board were half as committed as him, we wouldn't be in the $hite that we are in !

To the defence of the Board KK spent £60m and it didn't make the slightest bit of difference. Money isn't the answer to everything as Sam Allardyce will tell you.

KK's record in the transfer market is littered with bad signings and any Board that give him £60m need shooting !

the manager nearly always takes the blame..the players need to standup and be counted as well and take responsibility....there should be a way of penalising them for non performance..
