Stick with Chris
WALES are in a mess — but I'd stick with Chris Coleman for the time being.
I don't think the national side have been in such a bad state for many years and I certainly can't remember when a squad was so depleted.
Coleman has 11 players missing for tomorrow's match against Macedonia in Cardiff and Tuesday's trip to Belgium.
You can bet it wouldn't be that many if they were second and pushing for qualification.
Wales have been worst hit in defence where they have been contemplating midfielder Owain Tudur Jones and full-back Chris Gunter as a central pairing. Thankfully, James Collins and Coleman seem to have put aside their differences so hopefully the West Ham man will be able to step in and add some experience. That would be positive because Wales can't afford to be without Premier League players.
The game in Brussels rounds off the World Cup qualifying campaign and what a poor fist Wales have made of reaching Brazil.
More worrying was the Under-21s' recent defeat to San Marino. I'd go as far as to say, that is the worst result in Welsh football history. If they're the future, things appear bleak.
Even though there's a lot of doom and gloom about at the moment, I wouldn't sack Coleman. For a start, there's no point making a change for the sake of it. Unless the Football Association of Wales have someone else lined up, and there's nothing to suggest they do, then where would getting rid of Chris leave us?
I'd give him until the first two games of the next qualifying campaign.
If there's been no improvement by then, it's probably time to part ways.
Some have suggested Tony Pulis as a replacement and I'd be all for that.
People question whether his direct tactics are a route Wales want to go down, but if we started playing long balls down the middle and Wales reached Euro 2016, I for one won't be complaining.
