Don't completely understand what all of this means but I'm guessing that it says based on xG we should be 10th currently

Obviously doesn't paint the full picture that we're fucking clueless and spineless

How are we in this situation after that run of games, its embarrassing

Scary that. Not sure he can have much to come back with when he's sat in front of Brands having a summary of the season so far over the next few weeks.

Doesn't this essentially mean we're toothless?

It means we’re uncreative if xg gives us only draws against the mediocre to poor sides we’ve played so far.

It means we’re also toothless, yes, and shaky, and a bit porous.

That's a pretty decent combination all round then!!!

There have been lots of small insignificant things that have worked against us at the start that all add up - some of which are Silva's fault, and some a failure elsewhere:

- Richarlison off form after no pre-season coming back from Copa America.
- Failing to sign Zouma's replacement, and Keane/Mina subsequently struggling
- Injuries to both Gomes and Gbamin, forcing us to play Schneiderlin, who is utterly toothless. Delph has been OK, but has been forced to do all of the creative work and cover for Morgan too many times.
- Moise Kean has failed to hit the ground running. Chopping and changing between him and DCL has given neither any sort of run in the team or form, causing our finishing to suffer
- Bernard has been inexplicably left out of the team after striking a very nice partnership with Digne. Iwobi hasn't had a consistent role, and hasn't struck any meaningful partnership with any other player.
- Jury continues to be out on Siggy, who is wildly inconsistent and gets marked out of the game too often. He doesn't seem to know how to overcome this, which is why it is baffling to most why he hasn't been dropped.
- Our passing has been very poor and the build up play slow because of this. Our movement has become very static, which suits teams which sit back against us
- Overall finishing has been woeful. We are creating chances, but failure to put them in the net at crucial points of games has hurt us

There is no doubt that the manager has made a few major mistakes, and ultimately the responsibility does fall on him to get things right. But the players are the ones out there that need to create and score goals, and they need to take their fair share of flack. At the moment, they are both letting us down.

We're just to predictable, the formation is all wrong, Silva has been found out, teams know how to set up against us and know if they go one up then its basically the game won

For me, when Richarlison was moved out from the left, he began struggling. He was so good early last season cutting in from the left and scoring. That threat is totally negated on the right and with Sig not scoring either this season, that's both our top scorers from last season not scoring this.

Richarlison isnt out of form. He's played out of position to accommodate an average player

Dogs of War saying meeting about silva next week. Definitely staying for the west ham game.

If true, then you would hope we are using the time to source a replacement to come in straight away.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

I think it is a bit of both to be honest. I don't think being played out of position helps, but as a winger, you shouldn't have too much of an issue playing the other side if you are in form.

Some sides have a front three that interchange, that would allow Richarlison to play on the left and right during games.  We have the players to do it, Kean, Richarlison, Bernard, Iwobi and DCL but not the manager.
