This is thread for KC's 'post honeymoon' period in charge and I think an analysis of why and where some of the problems are is fair, especially with so many seemingly calling for KC's head.

My point was that people pointing fingers at Curle for certain deficiencies with the team are, IMO, misguided. While I'm well aware of KC's reputation as a bit of a 'tinkerman' I think many of the changes he has made at times have been down to plugging gaps as best as he can and the LB area is probably the most glaring. He is also the second manager in successive January windows to see it as a priority to strengthen in that position (no coincidence) and has been unfortunate that the LB he signed has gotten injured.

Does he stick with his current system or stick Buchs back in and let us get torn to shreds there anyway? Because all of the evidence for the last two season suggests that is what will happen.

I'll say it again, the failure to recruit a LB over the summer and leave Buchs as our only specialist for that position was grossly negligent.

After Saturday and with Turnbull still out I'd be tempted to go with 4 at the back with Pierre at LB and 5 in midfield (If we've even got 5 who are match fit to play there at the moment). Williams up top on his own and Morias and Sordell as second half impact subs.

You've added a fair bit in defence of KC, so Ill just throw in the obvious 'counters' to balance it out!

1. Taylor. It is becoming more annoying by the game why he keeps picking him, my opinion is that he's the biggest single problem in the team.
2. Facey. He shouldn't have got shot of the Dolphin man, who was much better in my view.
3. His subs. Pretty much every game make us worse. They are also totally reactive much of the time.
4. Wingback system. Regardless of his bad luck with the left back he signed, its clear as day that with the current available personnel, 4-4-2/similar is the best way forward.

I don't see many (if any) calling for his sacking at minute, but this weeks massive and that could change very very quickly!
