After yesterday's woeful performance it's not the lack of competence that prevailed, but even worse, the on-set of lack of confidence.

Is Sami Hyypia, a former top international player, expecting too much from players that maybe do not meet his expectations or have the quality to do so? This is now descending, after yesterday's offering, into a worrying downward spiral.

We now have two league games against moderate opposition, who could and should be beatable, this is will be the test for Sami's man-management skills. Backs to the wall, Dunkirk spirit and all that. Will he succeed? I hope so, I really do.
