  1. Utterly useless all over the pitch.
  2. You often hear the term “footballing brain”, I’m starting to wonder whether Bakayoko has A brain? What on earth is he doing fizzing that ball into Emerson from all of 5 yards away?! He really needs to improve quickly. Terrible decision making, composure and exeucution
  3. Disappointing response to the Saints changes by taking Willian off for Bakayoko. We really could do with a second goal before inviting Saints onto us for the last 25 minutes.

    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    For the first time that I can think of, we have a manager who doesn’t want to be here, a board who don’t want him here yet we are waiting to part with him? What exactly is it that we are waiting for? I’m not aware of any term in his contract that means it will be considerably more expensive to sack him now than when the season ends? Conte is determined to prove that he was right about the underinvestment in the squad and the board seem hell bent on hanging him out to dry. It really does seem like a perfect storm which is just circulling around us and won’t dissipate. For what its it’s worth I really rate Conte and I’m certain he will be a success wherever he goes next. Unfortunately for reasons unbeknown to us, we seem to have a deep rooted problem at board level with giving any of our managers freedom in the transfer market. Sadly whilever that is the case we won’t ever get a manager who can build a dynasty and bring through youth players, instead, we will hire coaches to get the best out of what they have, until such point that they want more and the board won’t sanction it. Irrespective of what happens in the last few weeks of this season, thanks for everything last year, Antonio and all the best for the future.
  5. And that’s the exact reason why we haven’t seen someone break through since JT. Other clubs are great at letting a youngster off of the leash when they’re playing well. Conversely we seem to reward them by letting them play a starring role in the reserves/youth team for the rest of the season.
  6. If Hudson Odoi doesn’t start the next game ahead of both Barkley and Pedro it’ll be an absolute disgrace.
  7. I only managed to catch the second half so can’t comment on the first half but from what I saw we never looked like scoring, which has happened far too many times in games recently. Their two goals were both fortunate but we really do need to improve quickly, or the Barcelona game could be an embarrassment.
  8. Well would you believe it, we’ve started on the front foot and we’re winning 2-0. A brilliant start from the boys. Long live 3-4-3!
  9. David Luiz displaying some fine skills in the art of what he likes to call marking, which involves standing within a minimum of 5 yards away from your oppponent.
  10. Every time I watch David Luiz play it reminds me of how much I should appreciate Andreas Christensen.

    Andy Carroll - Football has gone mad

    I’m 100% confident we will not pay £30m for him. Anything other than a 6 month loan is ridiculous. Our board are not that inept... are they?
  12. To be honest I think Willian and Pedro both on was the right change to make. Looking more positive already.
  13. Tried to stay optimistic but this 3-5-2 business just doesn’t work right now with the midfield 3 we are using. Leicester are pushing us back and we have no out ball because Morata is so isolated. Hazard having an off day which kills any chance of this formation actually working. Please bring Willian on for Fabregas (don’t trust a midfield two of Kante and Fabregas) at half time and let’s play positively for the first time in weeks.
  14. Wasn’t convinced 3-5-2 was the right formation at home to Arsenal, even less convinced it’s the way we should go at home against weaker opposition such as Leicester. Nevertheless I’m hopeful of a win to get confidence going again. A big performance from Hazard with a goal or two from Morata will do just nicely.
  15. I think we’re at a bit of a crossroads at the moment with regards to what formation we should go with. Although the 3-5-1-1/3-5-2 gives us solidity in midfield it absolutely kills our attack and makes us painfully one dimensional. It worked perfectly away at Atletico Madrid, but I think that was partly down to the element of surprise. At home, in games we should be winning, I really think we need to go with 3-4-3 and show some attacking intent from the outset. All in all another poor game. We must do better.
