Are we going in circles through a list of 'what doesn't help the 2nd line' for a good reason, or is it down to just blind hope now? I'm a huge Kovlaev fan and I even think that the Sammy signing may turn out for the better yet, but it seems pretty obvious even to me that something needs to be done to wake them up. And that wouldn't include doing things that have already failed. I can only assume that the Sammy-Pleks-Kovy combination had ONE HELL of a training session recently and Carbo is willing to risk it again, but I don't see why things would have changed now. At least we don't have to wait long to find out.
I wasn't much of a Pleks fan before I saw his interview on RDS yesterday. Now I'm pulling for him. I could see it in his face that he feels he should be playing better - that the team needs him to play better. Not that it matters much, but Pleks won himself one more fan here, I hope he does well with this opportunity.
