Good thing he didnít post his opinion anonymously on this board or he would have been shot down!

Nice to see some honesty from the camp. The horse has rather bolted now though. Seems to confirm a culture of abdication of responsibility had set in and turned things rotten. The admission of laziness in terms of fitness, conditioning and skills is very frank, and it sits uneasily with me that anyone in such a privileged position would / could allow their standards of professionalism to slip so badly. But I have never been a pro-sportsman and wouldnít pretend to understand it.

At least they seem to be looking in the right place for answers and I hope that some improvement is forthcoming very soon.

There is a fair list of posters who would have crucified someone for suggesting the players were lazy, and indeed have done so.


This is the first honest message from inside the camp for a very long time. One of Jimís failings was an inability to communicate via the press and I assume a strict control over the players too, it was all diplomatic empty content.

Much much better, thank you Ben.

ďThe whole squad and coaches are lazy and unprofessionalĒ is not something that I would have dared to post (even if I thought it)!

I would say that those posters would have been right unless the person in question had direct knowledge. Ben Foden is within his rights to say what he see's. If we are saying players are lazy behind the scenes and are not behind the scenes ourselves, then I do not think it is right to criticise that which we do not know.

The first step in fixing a problem is admitting you have one. Refreshing to hear, and not a surprise really. Just good to hear stuff spoken how it is. The only way is up.

It's the sort of honesty that has been sadly lacking from the coaches and the directors.

The king is dead, long live the king.

Itís a small town, lots of posters would have direct knowledge at a guess.

I wonder if Ben now wishes he had kept his mouth shut.
Sound bites mean nothing, Ben, itís what you do, or as it currently is, donít do on the field that counts.

What a complete disgrace this squad is!!
Ashamed to be a saint at the moment.
