Sticking is better than twisting

Sacking a manager without a plan is just madness, isn’t it? That’s me asking myself that question in case you were wondering. Normally I would stay away from that line of thinking as it seems the hierarchy of the club are. But sooner or later the question of whether Brendan is adding problems to the club needs to be addressed. The players look unmotivated, confused and sorely lacking in confidence. All issues that a good coach would have addressed by now. There is a strong argument to say that the reason the club is where they are is mainly down to Brendan and removing his bleak and morose personality from the club could well provide the players with some much-needed freedom. Six years ago the club made the difficult decision to remove the most successful manager in the club’s history and put a caretaker in charge. It worked out pretty well then and mustn’t be dismissed here either.

Unseen problems

Where I will stick up for Brendan, is how silent the club has been all season. Something is not right with the complete lack of communication with the fans about where this club is headed. Brendan has been left to field all media questions about everything transfer related whilst clearly not revealing everything. It may be that this is not the job he thought it would be when signing his multi-million-pound contract and perhaps there have been broken promises along the way. We know for certain that he was not backed in the transfer market in the summer and it took till January for the club to back him whilst players seem to have stuck around at the club that clearly are not wanted.

It’s worrying that the situation has come to this. A club that refuses to sack a manager when they have several good reasons too. Ultimately Leicester City fans just want to enjoy watching their team play football again, ideally in the Premier League. It’s been entertaining and he’ll always have that FA cup win but for everyone’s sake, the time to part ways is now – before it’s too late.
