Be prepared cause this might happen and I think is needed. For years we have not had a proper footballing philosophy. We need to move from the pragmatic approach since Malky walked through the door and our recruitment especially in the midfield has been poor. When it comes to midfielders that can actually make the game tick and pass the ball. We keep on signing industrial players and from the Colin period it could be catching up to us this season. Harris hasn't had much freedom due to the lack of funds he has to bring in loans mostly it's only 1 game so it could be a sign of what's to come? or it's just a blip but be prepared that we dont challenge this year and more of a transitioning season cause the squad is nowhere near prem quality like it was last season I didnt rate our chances in the play offs this squad is still in Warnocks image and it's going to take a little while to get rid of the aging dross he brought in. But the blame is firmly on Dalmans and Choos door for letting Colin take the piss and its left Harris with a little kitty to use Moore signing has most likely used up all of it.

I wouldn't disagree too much with the points.

We make and have made disjointed signings for years.

The fundamental issue is Dalman and Choo don't have the football knowledge to seemingly say no to managers other than on a cost basis.

What is the philosophy Harris wants to install at the club? Possession based, controlling football? Continuing the counter attack based style?

I'd say the latter given recruits have been aimed at getting more attacking pace into the side - but then Moore goes against that style. You can see the passing is getting better than it was, things will take time.

There's seemingly no continuity - I'd favour bringing in an established Director of Football.

Don’t think anything about this season says transitional on paper tbh, basically the exact same squad we had that was top 3 in the form table for the last 10 games. We should be carrying on the momentum, no excuses

I believe we overachieved last season for the squad we have.

It's a workmanlike midfield, Bacuna the best.

Given 3 of our back 4 have over 1000 combined matches, we still concede far too many soft goals.

We still lack effective service into lone striker.

If we want to play more of a passing game rather than the passe counter attack style, we need someone in midfield able to sit and instigate - I've previously said a Barry Bannon type player and nothing in the two games so far has dissuaded me from that view.

hate to break the illusion rydogs but given we've spent 16 out of 18 years in the championship I think it's safe to say that unless someone with a plan like at wolves takes us over, or we by pure luck give the next pep his first management job, we won't ever be anything like the raging success that you hope we will.

Little things that are needed like DOF which would make a massive difference this transfer committee is total bollocks and is holding us back big time there is literally no long term planning in the recruitment.

We need to refresh and start again otherwise we will keep going in circles playing pragmatic football cause people want short term results over long term.

Hindsight is wonderful but a club like Wolves or Watford would've sacked Colin as soon as promotion was confirmed cause they have a long term plan.

You do realise that our potential problems on the pitch stem from Colin's poor recruitment over the last couple of years? Our club would be royally f**ked if you were in charge.
yes blame it all on him
