Tactical mastermind Dave Hockaday has said that he will start his team to face Millwall, as it stands, on Saturday against Chesterfield. Is that what we need? Yes. Did he need to tell the media that? Absolutely not. I have been trying throughout all this to remain as positive as possible, I have been satisfied with some of the players we have signed so far and was hoping that we might turn into a half decent side, but whilst we have The Hock in charge does it really matter who we sign? Take Tuesday night’s defeat to Mansfield for example, I mean absolutely no dis respect to Mansfield when I say this, but this a game we should have won. Does it matter? Not particularly, I can’t say I ever read too much into pre season results but when we play so poorly and then our manager turns around and says we dominated the game is a total head scratcher. Whilst I personally believe that we should support the team and all that, I also believe that when I spend thousands of pounds a year following the team around the country, I have a right to voice these concerns and be as negative or, in my opinion in this case, extremely realistic that we could find ourself a difficult time over the next few months. As far as Millwall go, they don’t need much homework, if we don’t get any stronger players in then the team from Saturday will go to The Den and start for us, all they have to do is send a scout, see how we shape up and then it’s job done for their preparation, school boy error from, Dave.
Regarding the transfer of Viviani, it appears that the club are entering a third day of negotiations, apparently the Viviani camp are concerned about the player joining Leeds following Tuesday night’s game, after Vivani and his team were present at the game. That in itself speaks volumes.
Again, whilst I try to dull down my negativity, I feel we all have a right to voice concerns and clear mistakes that are going on. No debate or argument intended. Just the truth.
So, as we speak, who is your strongest team to face Millwall? Let us know your thoughts.
