And he points to the thousands of messages he receives from fans who have made their feelings known sometimes noisily on the social network over the last year.
Speaking exclusively to ClaretandHugh he said: “Of course things have become disappointing – a blind man can see that but let’s not start calling out the players.
“I have been on Twitter for a long time – long enough to unnerstand how the fans feel and what they want from the board. That’s fair enough. I look at them all – it’s why I’m out there
“They were desperate for us to re-sign Winston and we did. They are regularly calling for us to sign Carl Jenkinson and Alex Song.
“They explain Aaron Cresswell, Diafra Sakho and Chek Kouyate have been immense this season in their first year and they are right.
“That all suggests they believe we have some very good players in the team so let’s keep things in perspective.
“Adrian, Mark Noble, Enner Valencia – there’s so many of them. We have very good players indeed. I agree with the fans.
“We are listening to all that’s said but such comments don’t suggest we are a poor or average team – quite the opposite and we will all be working very hard on things again this summer.”
