I think this team has more character and strength than last year's model and is thus more fun to root for. I think there's a balance to be struck between Mindless Homerism and Sour Defeatism. I think that most people here can tell the difference and use one of the other more for dramatic effect than serious discussion. The serious discussion tends to come from the Middle Ground. It's possible to love the team, appreciate its success, and wish it was more consistently excellent.Ultimately, I don't really understand what he's talking about, but I rarely do with Lewis, so I shake it off.

Something he does resonates in that clubhouse and the guys are inspired behind him, which is something you don't see with every team. So, while his in-game managerial skills may be lacking in some areas, his players seem to like him and they will stop at nothing to win for him. I'm happy with a manager that puts a fire in his team.
