In a slump? We can help.


Recommended Posts

Just been appointed manager to mass disapproval and not recorded a win yet? 

Not scored for your new club since your summer move?

Got the worst defensive record in the league and badly in need of a clean sheet?

Not picked up a point in your first seven games?

Not managed a single goal in the first two months of the season?

Don't despair. All is not lost. We are experts in helping you turn things around. Especially if you're sh*te and based in London.

That is what is so annoying about results like today, now having lost to West Ham, Crystal Palace and Burnley already this season, our weakness and lack of sufficient effort against lower and mid table teams is going to encourage others to have a real go as well when they play us - very frustrating.

The only thing I can say is when we used to play away the fans used to sing like mad and when we were losing even louder and that often meant everyone standing up. It often seemed to turn a looming defeat into a draw. Not sure with the stadium rules today that would be possible...........

It’s depressing because it’s true, I can’t believe we’ve lose to the worst two teams in the league. 

It's called attitude, if we show up from the first minute of the game, we don't allow teams like Palace and West Ham to get a foothold in the game. Instead we have this ponderous slow start to a game, square and back passes, expecting teams to allow us to dictate tempo. Once behind we just don't have enough match winners within the squad to break packed defences down.

Exactly this, and its a problem that has been getting worse recently: conceded in the 6th minute away against West Ham, conceded in the 12th minute at home against Newcastle, conceded in the 11th minute away against Crystal Palace, conceded in the 1st minute away against Roma, etc - slow lacklustre starts are seeing us concede early increasingly frequently, and often costing us heavily. Need to fix it sharpish.

It's something that has been in our game for years now. We have had tons of wake up calls but the players never react to it.
