Scarborough Athletic boss Rudy Funk let rip at his underachieving players after Tuesday’s North Riding FA Senior Cup embarassment.
Funk was furious after the 2-1 home defeat to Guisborough at Queensgate, leaving the Boro chief mulling over the futures of a few of his players.
He had previously been upset by his side’s showings in a couple of other games this season, but this performance seemed to be the straw that broke the camel’s back.
He said: “I’m not happy with the team and certain individuals.
“There are no excuses, we have a talented squad, but to have displays like this aren’t acceptable.
“It is okay standing there and shaking your head after you’ve made a mistake, but they ought to look themselves in the mirror and give themselves a roasting.
“It isn’t right, and when I see that things aren’t right, players have to start looking over their shoulders.
“We are a big club and the expectation levels are high, for me performances like this are just wrong.
“I have been disappointed a couple of times, but this time is one too many.
“I have made my mind up on a few things now.
“There is a big possibility that changes could be rung for the Sutton game.
“I am not at the stage of my career when I choose to sack people or change people there and then.
“You have to think about it and make sure it is a logical decision for the club.
“Enough is enough though, I can’t accept it anymore.”
Many people could view the North Riding FA Senior Cup as a distraction, but it was a competition Funk was keen to push on in.
He added: “We were playing in a quarter-final to try and push our way into a semi-final, surely there should have been more appetite from the players.
“People say these games can be a distraction, but games like the Guisborough one should be relished.
“If we are playing on a Tuesday and a Saturday then it should be music to players’ ears.
“They are young, fit and doing something that they enjoy.”
