A strongly worded tweet from Blackpool striker Michael Chopra has left fans wondering just how bad the situation at the club is at the moment.
The 30 year old posted a tweet claiming the training sessions were not up to the standard they should be, arguing that the fitness coach should not be the one to take training and that more than 6 players should be there.
The tweet only worsens the current situation. 7 losses in the last 8 games has left fans calling for current Pool boss Paul Ince to leave the club and with the players now expressing their unhappiness at the club, Ince`s popularity is ever diminishing.
It would not come as a surprise if Chopra were to leave the club this month. His limited amount of game time and lack of impact on the pitch followed up by his controversial outburst on twitter may mean his days in Tangerine are numbered.
Chopra leaving would not be the worst thing to happen. The side`s lack of form and the struggle to support the currently failing manager is much more of a worry.
Ince did a fantastically good job keeping the side up last season. However, this bad run clearly exemplifies what`s wrong with his management style. His inability to please the fans through the media in a bad time for the club is worrying. Though what`s more worrying is that he can`t seem to turn this bad run of form around.
Chopra`s tweet certainly hasn`t helped the situation. He may have a fair point, and understandably he is unsatisfied at the moment, but criticising the club for everyone to see probably doesn`t help.
Many anti-Ince fans will be glad to see Chopra making a stand against the manager and hope it will push him out of the club. If things carry on the way they have been these past 8 games, then yes a change of manager should most definitely occur.
For the meantime though, it is also important that we concentrate on supporting the players in trying to turn this bad run around. We have every right to express our unhappiness at the manager if we feel his doing a poor job, but getting behind our team is the most important thing we can do.
