    I’ll actually be rooting for you guys tomorrow. A Chelsea defeat would be bloody handy for us.

    3 out of 3 at home. Our first hat trick already. Goal difference positive. Back in to 3rd COYS!

    Jones nearly giving away a goal with his **** positional awareness.

    Apparently Snodgrass has every right to go for the ball so its not a penalty. He went for the ball, missed it completely and took Mata out.

    We're still looking pretty ****. Since Ole got his contract we seem to have just taken our foot off the gas and slumped back into the sort of play that was routine under Mourinho. Slow passing, little urgency and low effort levels.

    I’m getting the same impression. Just don’t get this squad sometimes.

    It’s bizarre. We were turning teams over and plying good football that the players seemed to enjoy. Now they are just coasting and it’s really obvious and it’s costing us a CL place at the moment.

    Part of it comes from teams knowing how you want to play so setting up to stop it. When Ole was new to the job he was a bit of an unknown so teams didnt gave a clue what to expect. Now they do.

    WH unlucky to have that opening goal wrongly ruled offside also.

    For all the (small) periods of good football Martial has, he is utterly useless when he plays like he is today. He and Mata might as well not be on the field.

    I agree up to a point but that shouldn’t mean that we revert to **** ineffective football at the first sign of trouble. It’s all aspects of our own game that have gone down hill. It’s not massively to do with other teams nullifying is.

    We have the finishing ability of a cowboy builder at the moment

    Does your head in watching half our defenders. Takes a look and sees Anderson behind him. Does he mark him? Nope. We have conceded a ridiculous amount of goals like that this season. Just simply not bothering.

    I've got tickets for next week and I'm seriously tempted to sell them, just not worth the 6 hour round trip to watch this dross at the moment. Players heads have gone again since the PSG game, for whatever reason

    I think the two Wolves games really messed them up and they’ve not really recovered and the ‘new’ period sheen has worn off. Just really want top 4 so we can get rid of the expensive dead wood we have without having to pay a massive Utd and non-CL tax for any players.

    Get rid of: Young, Valencia, Lukaku, Sanchez, Fred, Rojo, Jones, Perreira, Mata, Matic etc
