Both valid points. As you say, IF there is a players' revolt then the issue needs addressing. If on the other hand, a few individuals think they rule the roost, then the issue is with the players. (Likewise, I have no idea if either scenario is true).

I remember reading the book about England's grand slam being derailed by Scotland, when Carling was made captain. They focus on the fact that some England players at the time didn't respect Carling when he was made captain, and how during the first team meeting some were playing pool. others reading a newspaper etc. Not sure why, but one of the previous posts brought that to mind.

The old saying about "one bad apple" may also ring true, as Cookie alludes to. Is it a possibility that the Yarde incident could help put things back on track? IF he was the bad apple (who knows?) then maybe the team will be better without him; or if he really was trying to exert too much power or influence, then maybe this will send out a message that no player is bigger than the club.

Again, this is all theorising. I really do want these players to play to their potential and would desperately like to know what the issue is. Many think it's the coaching, some specifically JK. I disagree on the latter, but agree that the former is a possibility. We shall just have to wait to find out.

For the record, as time goes on I'm starting to think that Tofty and Dippy maybe should be under the microscope.
