If anything, the issue this season has been that he hasn't played to the teams strengths.
We've an excellent set of attacking players for this level, but haven't been great defensively (essentially the opposite of last season)
However, JG has spent a lot of the season trying to play the same style of football that worked last season, (and was very successful for us 10 years ago). He's spent several months trying various combinations of midfielders / defenders to make the style work, but unfortunately, it just hasn't happened. In hindsight, there may have been something to be said for just going for a much more attacking formation most weeks. This would have meant the odd 4-1 hammering, but we may well have won enough games 3-2 to make up for that.
