Farke didn't have anything to learn for the championship. He undoubtedly proved all the naysayers two years ago to be so, so wrong im surprised they've had the arrogance to give it another go this season.

What he did need is more tools to work with so we can change if we need to. We've already seen this season we have a more physical striker and the amount of crosses into the box when Hugill is on the pitch has been higher than any of our prem games when that option didn't exist.

We've added more pace and Placheta has been able to get in behind even packed defences.

We've averaged conceding less than 1 goal a game and for every 'chance' you tell me the opposition had, I can probably come back at you with two or three we had.

In the championship every team will always have a few chances against you. Watch most Leeds or West Brom matches from last season, its no different.

You have some ideological view where unless we are winning 3-0 every game its not good enough. The reality I think, is Farke is proving you wrong and rather than accept it there's a bit reluctance to give credit for turning around an awful relegation hangover so quickly and keeping players on board. Recruitment has been good too.
It's just game management Hoggy, we won the championship despite not having it, we didn't display any in the Prem and we know how that worked out, we aren't really managing games now.
I'm looking forward to next season and the likely outcome if we don't learn.

Remember, our club could be over £100,000,000 better off had we not got relegated.

Maybe fella, but game management at this stage of the season in the bizarre circumstances are clearly going to bypass most if not all teams this season..thats been shown even by the Best prem teams like Man City this season.

All the teams have faced the same issue regards covid etc, that's pretty much a level playing field.

I just have felt that we could do so much better, not by winning ten - nil, but by choosing when to give everything and when to kill a game off.

Yeah all teams have faced the same issues and no teams have been able to show the sort of game management you're alluding to!

To be fair, it's been a longstanding situation with Farke, we're not just talking about since Covid in March.

Its to be expected if you want to play fluid, attractive football. If you want to do that and also be good at game management then you're Liverpool last season.

I also believe that we've been more streetwise than the last two seasons - Rupp and Skipp making 'tactical' fouls at the right time when we've overloaded and look at risk to counter.
