Many people, fans, the press and former managers have unsuccessfully tried to answer the question of why the team is so poor.
If top managers Roy Keane, Steve Bruce, Martin O’Neil, Dick Advocaat and former superstar players Poyet and Di Canio cannot find the solution we have a grave problem.
I have now come to the conclusion that the players simply couldn’t care less.
Why should they? The money they make playing for a dire team at the bottom of the league will give them a top lifestyle for the rest of their lives.
The bigger clubs pay bigger wages and get better players of course but the principle is the same. Unfortunately, the fans will have to put up with this rubbish for a long time so we will have to accept it.
