We're currently in this never ending cycle of defensive tactics working against good teams and everybody professing him a mastermind and the exact same set of tactics making hard work of lesser teams and everybody moaning about his negativity.



He is, quite simply, inflexible. In response to the thread title he has earnt us exactly what we deserve playing like that - a group of players capable of upper mid table are entering February well in a relegation battle but with enough standout results along the way to keep most onside.

Great summary.
