It is a conundrum.MM signings this summer were very poor and playing players like Alabi and McEverley may have cost us the points that have left us trying to close a gap.Equaaly selection and substitutions have at times been odd and was a contributory factors to points lost such as the game at Eastleigh.He is also to my mind always inclined in the big games to put experience ahead of youth.The recent Maccs game and the play off final are examples.
On the other hand he is not a bad manager and he has worked hard to reshape following the poor summer signings. I suppose the question for MM is will he learn from mistakes or is he a manager whose flaws will always mean that we are always likely to fall just a little short of rivals

I don't see how Alabi and McEveley playing lost us points on their own, it's a team game after all.

I agree, no one was really performing in the first couple of months. And Alabi & McEverly were brand new signing, so can’t put anything on there back to be fair.

It is not to blame them. But we struggled in that period in part because they ere not good enough and presumably that is the reason MM decided not use after the initial period.If I was to attribute blame it would be directed at selection when we already had better options on the books. In fairness though MM has restructured the team but the initial period,left us like last year,playing constant catch up
