Other factors have not helped but the manager is responsible for the lack of a clear style of play and muddled recruitment

They can feature a dash of high pressing and slick passing mixed in with sluggish ball retention, passiveness, erratic defending, and everything seems predicated on the hope of a smash-and-grab counterattack.
