It’s not too much to ask, is it?

7 years ago

I remained quite positive about Wally, even when for the first couple of games he sat upstairs until a goal had gone in.

Then I thought, maybe he is just playing the best out of a bad bunch, maybe the reason Coloccini’s captain is because it’s in his contract.

Now I think of John Carver and smile, at least he gave it a go. He may have got beaten every game but at least he tried.

We all knew the best team for the toffees, I would have fancied a 4-3-3 Mitro with Townsend and Perez leading.

What does wally do? 4-6-0 – that really positive formation giving us no chance of a goal.

Now with two defenders out, I am terrified of STaylor fist pumping next to Colo and Colback at left-back.

The West Bromwich game is going to be anti-football hell, Pulis playing 4-4-2 and us…. some horrible mishmashed 3-5-2 formation with Aarons left-back (kid’s a winger not a defender).

I hope I am wrong but I see us staying off the opposition and trying to hit them on the break, giving bad players time to pick out a pass, look up etc.

Wally must go, as such I honestly hope we get a stuffing by five or six. A sub on who then gets sent off, Wally sent off for a suspect Dutch accent in the fourth official’s ear.

I don’t care who comes next, as long as Coloccini is removed as captain and we don’t play negative Pardew-esque football.

It’s not too much to ask, is it?
