We’ve played for several weeks as if it didn’t matter much, although, of course, it did.If Lage is the problem then it should be relatively easy to fix, if it's Lage and the players then it might get a bit bumpy
The players must bear responsibility for the number of poor performances, but it seems obvious that there is also a disconnect between the coach and the players.
Normally that means the coach goes, as that is the simplest solution, and I think Bruno should go.
The added problem we have is that many of the team look stale, and in need of a change.
It’s a conundrum I’m glad I don’t need to deal with, but Messrs Shi and Sellars do, and unless there are clear directives from Shanghai for them to follow, it could get messy.
I think I’d begin with a new coaching team, but who knows?
