You make a fair argument but I remember Gardner getting stick on here for not showing enough passion because he didn't get animated enough. As far as passing judgement on Gus' man management skills are concerned, I reckon only the players can call that one. We don't know what goes on in the dressing room or at Lesser in training. It's not just about the 90 minutes and, I would add, we can't actually hear what he's saying. I'd be surprised if his rants weren't constructive even though they're delivered in an "enthusiastic" manner. Players tend to vote with their feet if they're not happy. We'll see how it goes. As for the fans, well me in particular, I'll admit to being happy if the team are winning and / or playing decent football. I'm not too bothered whether it's a soft approach or a ranting one. I'm guilty as charged on that. I'd echo your comments on the kids. Nothing would please me more than to have 11 first teamers who've come through the ranks. Hopefully the clutch we have at the moment can bed in and we get the benefit. Keep the Faith.
