new manager bounce - curbs 1, reed 0
Obviously Les Reed is blameless that West Ham won today
but what Alan Curbishley and his new charges did was maximise the 'new manager bounce.'
It happens everywhere - even Macclesfield Town
have done it and brings a new found confidence and energy from players and supporters alike.
My company call it 'impactful'
, however all Reed has done since his appointment is sap every ounce of hope out of the fans and seemingly give the players no leadership or inspirational qualities at all.
With the media with their knives out, the fans and the club might see a defeat to Wycombe on Tuesday as irrelevent but be assured the press will not and will have another field day at our expense. With confidence at an all time low going into the Middlesbrough game on Saturday on the back off winning just 5 points from the previous 72 available away from home, you wonder if over his Turkey and stuffing if Richard Murray decides that he has to stop the good name of his and our beloved club from being dragged further into the depths of despair.
Because at the moment that is where we are, on a fast non-stopping train to, with Les Reed at the wheel.
