Fan Letters: “We need a passionate manager to get some ass-kicking instilled back into this club”

The way that things are now - it’s an insult to the many fans who go week after week and pay their money”, says Roker Report reader Angela Dalzell.

Dear Roker Report,

Simon Grayson's tactics are certainly suspect - he seems always to do exactly the opposite of what is required.

His thinking on player selection is however even more worrying. Steele (must allow any decent shot to go through him) O'Shea (just too slow) Jones (has not got a clue how to play football) Cattermole (spent force). We will NEVER have a comfortable game with these players in the team, so let's move on once and for all. Replace these with Ruiter, Browning, Wilson and Williams - it's a no brainer to me, it would be interesting to know the views of other fans, maybe Roker Report could hold a poll?

Dear Roker Report,

Where do I start? The downfall of my beloved club - the club my family for generations has supported. The lack of commitment by the owner, and dare I say a manager who seems without a clue and Nil passion!

We sold Pickford and Defoe and that was our downfall. That is why we are where we are right now, and why there is a lack of passion in those who are left - there’s no ambition.

The keeper we have I have no faith in - we should have kept Mannone, who is far better than who he brought in.

We need a passionate manager - we need a Reidy, an Allardyce, a Kevin Phillips to get some ass-kicking passion instilled back into this club.

The way that things are now - it’s an insult to the many fans who go week after week and pay their money. They owe it to the many people who work for the club, at the stadium and in the shops. They owe it to this great City - to our fore fathers, to us all.

We need HELP now. SAFC forever.
