IF..........

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

IF Claude is reading this to keep his spirits up this morning then maybe there are a few more IFS we could add to it........

IF you had started with a stronger team then it wouldn't have happened!
IF you had designed the tactics to go out there and attack straight from the off to nullify the crowd and the adrenaline of the Newport players!
IF you had taken the FA Cup seriously!
IF you had shown respect to those supporters who travelled down to South Wales only to sing their hearts out as always but be served up with a Vanarama performance!
IF you gave any impression that you had an idea how to turn the tide!
IF you knew who played where and played them in their best position!
IF you have a conscience, then sit at your desk this morning, look into a mirror and ask yourself what on earth am I doing!
IF you don't connect with the supporters then you are up the well known creek without any sort of paddle!

IF..........

If---our club had listened to he Southampton fans??
This is exactly what they predicted.
Having spent last night dwelling on what should have been under Puel,my feeling is
Anyone but Puel.

Well put Apples...and, of course, should the answer to all those points be “yes” then CP really believes in himself and his reign should continue. On the opposite side of the coin however...

Take yesterday’s result and a PL placing 10-12 further down the ladder and I reckon he would have been on his way soon. We’ve suffered some shockers in the Cup over the years and I’ve seen one or two, but a managerial dismissal didn’t follow shortly afterwards (unless, you the people can remember better).

I didn’t see the match so will reserve judgment.

IF Puel would just balance his tactical approach to suit the personnel on the pitch, he may get my backing.

Until then, it’s when he gets his P45 rather than IF.

It's difficult watching Telly Savalas in other roles – like Blofeld in 'On Her Majesty's secret service', or Maggot in 'The Dirty dozen' – you always half expect him to come out with that line and produce a lollipop.
