    Opinion Article - To More Than Survive a Big Summer is Needed

    I started writing a post on Saturday that ended up article length so @Bozza has kindly allowed me to publish it in the "read the Albion" section. What went right this season? What went wring? And what needs to happen in the summer to fix it? Over to you......

      We need a manager who can do more than:

      1. Pick a starting 11
      2. Tell them to sit deep and keep it tight, maybe nick a goal from a set piece
      3. Make like for like substitutions on 70 minutes

      I could do that job. We need someone able to implement their own tactics into matches, develop patterns of play in training and most importantly the ability to improve young players.

      Unfortunately I think we need a pretty big summer just to survive next season. Our limitations have been cruelly exposed since Xmas.

      An excellent morning read.

      Pretty much agree word for word and point for point.

      Definitely a fair assessment on the current and future. Good post and well thought out.

      Good read, thanks.

      I'm with you on CH, if he's going to stay he not only needs to be given ammunition but he needs to use it (and be encouraged to use it) properly. I'm not too optimistic but will be hopeful

      I assume CH will have the summer with DA and the rest of the recruitment staff to put a squad together that is more suited to the premier league.
      Personally Ryan Dunk Bernardo Bissouma March and one of proper or Grob should be starting next season

      Duffy I love as a defender and the partnership with Dunk is great but it’s also a partnership that has its flaws especially against mobile forwards. It’s also a partnership that was bullied by wood and Barnes and Mitrovic. Personally it could be improved lthiugh maybe not essential

      RB Montoya positionally is a liability and no surprise to see Bruno come back for the end of the season

      CM Stephens - we just are not mobile enough in the middle of the park. Some of the times opposition midfielders and running at the back 4 is pretty alarming. A more mobile athletic DM is a must. I like Stephens but you need to evolve and develop

      Currently I would play March on the right. There is a spare slot for the left side. Locadia and Jahanbakhsh don’t look like the answers and Izzy isn’t likely to play much early season.

      CF we still need one who is actually going to take Murray’s place long term

      Better recruitment is needed. Pace and mobility are key and experience of English football for some of them.

      Given that Ashworth has a (big) reputation for identifying and developing youth players, and supposedly has a serious contact book containing the best and brightest domestic talent in this country, you’d hardly be going out on a limb to surmise that young, British premier league ready (but not top six) talent is on the agenda. If that’s the case then football wisdom says you’ll also need some real ‘no dickheads’ PL experience in the side/squad too. Then you’ll need a coach and coaching structure to exploit this vision, a budget to make it happen and a brutal re-evaluation of the current first team squad. It is going to be a helluva two-day meeting when the club picks over the bones of this season. Think there will be some changes coming.

      So could anyone which is why it’s a total unfair characterisation of Hughton , his experience and his track record.
