What missing at present from our team is a leader who will drive us on, shout at the player when they need it and lead by example when that's needed. Our great teams had lots of those characters, now we have none. Valencia will give his all but that's not enough to be our captain.

Simply playing devils advocat here.

Who’s the loud/ vocal leader that drives the city team on?

14 Feb 2018 05:44:20
Unfortunately just some time back I was thinking that Smalling could have step up to be that leader. How far down he has fall down to her pecking order.

Kompany fits that bill but I think it’s more than the leader issue for us. We lack intensity and drive in a few players, that should come from within and the desire to perform. What I saw on Sunday was a Newcastle team that wanted it more than some of our players. SAF was a great motivator but from a long term position of strength, the players knew they had to perform or be gone. A leader on the pitch would help, as would not having to look over our shoulders at a unconvincing pair in central defence.

What we need is a manager who plays all the players in their correct positions with the correct tactics. We also need a manager who is a motivator and good at man management. Hand on heart, does anyone believe that Mourinho is that manager?

14 Feb 2018 08:03:18
Hand on heart, I'm not sure. I think what he's won in his career earns him a little longer to get it right than his predecessors. That's why I am trying hard not to judge him before the end of next season.

Should it not come from the manager.
Vidic and co didn't look like leaders under moyes .
Sure did under fergy.

When do the players take responsibility though? We've had certain players now putting in the insipid performances under 3 managers. All 3 managers have their faults. But the players need to step up as well.

They don't managers do .
May not be fair but that's the way it is . A managers job is to get the best out of his players.

Have you ever managed, in football or in work?

There are many aspects to management and motivation and you are doing the simple blame the manager routine.

14 Feb 2018 20:39:36
I have red man both football and work.
And to be honest there is far more to it than a couple of comments on a banter site .

But in a simple way, managers, tend to get sacked players don't
If a team is underperforming the manager takes the responsibility.

It would take pages to fully cover the subject but this is a comment site .
But any decent manager takes responsibility for his team and is normally judged by his or her teams performance .

Just to be clear I haven't blamed anyone it's just your Jose obsession kicking in .
I just pointed out that generally (in football ) if a team is underperforming such as Chelsea when they where only a few points above relegation it's the manager who falls on the sword .

Not picking but a manager is accountable rather than responsible

SAF was particularly successful because he built an impregnable managerial position very successfully, that enabled him to use different styles of motivation. They gave Moyes a 6 year contract to try and replicate it. The players have responsibility to put the effort in but there is only so much a manager can do about motivation until they have built their position.

I'm responsible and accountable for my team in a work environment.
I disagree about motivation as well, with the right techniques you can set the tone from day 1.
