You would think but cheap rarely knows any limits ... perhaps one of Andy Pandy's hang-ups was that the Club wanted to let some of his team go.
Martin is believed to be open to the idea of taking the Swansea job but he would like the opportunity to strengthen the squad.
That would likely have to be in the form of loans and free transfers given how little money the club's owners made available to Cooper.
It seems those against him are saying that his team passes just for the sake of it, building their stats by pointless possession at the back; that they fail to do it where it counts in the opponents third thereby lacking penetration and goals. Much the same as opponents of Rodgers used to say in fact. I can't comment on this as I've seen very little of the Dons in action. BUT, even if it's true, perhaps it's because of the limited ability of the players he has to work with.It seems we have signed Russell Martin.
As expected, the fan base is divided. What I could read on social media it's 50% - 50%. The former ones are Monkists, and the latter ones those who want our legacy back.
Personally, I am excited with this appointment because it's a good start and it gives me a hope that we'll be playing some good passing football. But, good passing football is not enough and our legacy have to be improved. I think Martinez, Rodgers, Laudrup, and Potter's football can and should be improved, so it embraces all elements of the modern top football. Ideally, a combo of Pep's passing and creativity together with Klopp's relentless gegenpressing and running.
The players who are not able to have a higher passing accuracy than 80% shouldn't be playing for us.
The players who don't want to move into the empty spaces on the pitch to receive a pass shouldn't be playing for us.
The players who are not able to run enough, so we can apply gegenpressing, shouldn't be playing for us.
I will be the first one to criticise Russell Martin if we start playing a boring version of passing football. Possession and passing means nothing if you create nothing.
Me too.I also want to see a marked improvement in the pace and urgency of our game.
Here is what Russell says.It seems those against him are saying that his team passes just for the sake of it, building their stats by pointless possession at the back; that they fail to do it where it counts in the opponents third thereby lacking penetration and goals.
