  1. Surely you cannot be serious...

    Yeah i get that and agree that there is no easy games. But if we had only lost 1 of the 3 games i mentioned, and won the other 2 then i wouldnt consider that a blip and would consider it a shock result, but the fact is we dropped points in all 3 of those games, as well as other teams that we should expect to beat. At what point does it stop being a shock result if it is happening more often than not? Anyway, @coco, we have sidetracked this thread. I respect your opinion and what you are saying. For the record, I would not be against ZZ but i am not wholly certain he would be convinced to come here.

    Yes that's right, but if we had won 2 of these games: Leicester Wolves Southamtpon Then we would still be ahead of United and Arsenal with a bit of a cushion. Point being that I think our dip in form/ results has been long before the Bournemouth game.

    0-0 at home to a team that was in the time in the bottom 3 isn't great though is it? United were 11 points behind us when Mourinho was sacked. They are now a point clear of us. Them gaining 12 points on us hasn't just happened since the Bournemouth game.

    Each to their own. In my view we have been poor since that Spurs game. Many other people have said that even that Spurs peformance was a long time coming. Since then we have had the following: Spurs, loss Wolves, loss Leicester, loss a 0-0 at home to Southampton a 1-0 loss to tottenham (granted we didnt play too badly this night) loss to arsenal. humiliated by bournemouth humiliated by man city loss to United. We had a win against Man City in that period, but since then we have seriously regressed. For me this 'blip' started a lot sooner than Bournemouth away.

    Can't be any funnier than the laughing stock we are at the moment.

    How to fix the team

    I would like to see us playing a 4-2-3-1 with Kante and Kovacic as the 2 midfielders. I would alternate Barkley and RLC in the hole behind the striker and i would make CHO second choice, behind Pedro.

    Sarri - In or Out?

    Yes i agree, i don't think Zola is the answer.

    Sarri - In or Out?

    Whilst this is the usual, it is not necessarily a given. RDM was AVB's number 2.

    haha was just about to angrily reply to this. Well played

    Sarri - In or Out?

    Great post overall but this bit stands out to me. I do not think Sarri is the right man due to his lack of flexibility. But if Zidane (for argument sake) comes in and shows the same lack of flexibility with his approach, what do we do then? Like most people are saying - if Sarri was showing even the slightest bit of tactical flexibility and we were getting beaten, but playing well or showing signs of promise then I think he would have a bit more patience and support from the fans. However right now i think it is Sarri's stubborness and tactical naivety that will cost him his job. If we was to implement a "plan B" it would be beneficial in at least two fold: 1) It would freshen us up and give us another dimension rather than looking so stale and ordinary as we are at the moment. and 2) It would make us harder for other teams to prepare for and so should make us less predictable and easy to suss out. Having a solid plan B, could make Plan A more effective in the long run.

    Hard to Motivate a Manager?

    I saw a quote attributed to him the other day something along the lines of "I don't want to face Napoli in the Europa League, it would be too much of an emotional reunion and i wouldnt be able to focus on the game properly" And he questions the players mentalities and motivation...

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Exactly this for me.

    But it is going pear-shaped at the moment, so what have we got to lose?
