We are struggling, so everyone is under a microscope. And boom, Richards plays the exact same way as last season and everyone wants to run him out of town. It's hilarious actually.
Not entirely true. Richards scored some big goals for us last year when nobody else could pick a corner and was generally far less of a defensive liability. I agree that the baseline wasn't exactly in the stratosphere but there is a clear regression from year to year; people were not being blind in the past.
