Id like to see

             Pickford
Sidibe  Keane Mina  Digne
       Gomes Gbamin
 Richarlison  Iwobi  Bernard
               Kean

This looks exciting.  Add Zouma in there at CB and we have a side to challenge.

No hole to go down, just saying..thehre slightly above were slightly below.

They are better than us like but I think if we got ourselves sorted we'd be up there oirsbes, especially considering the games we've had.

Re : boring / predictability to watch etc. Not really sure what the question is, but I imagine if the team starts racking up lots and lots of high quality chances we will enjoy it more and that will show in the stats.

Apologies I know that's not why a lot of us are here but it was pertinent and probably will remain so whenever we discuss performance to be honest.

Wasn't having a pop about xg, I can see the benefit of the stats and it probably does broadly give a fair representation of where we are at.

I was just making the point that even if we did create maybe another few decent chances a game and the xg saw an uptick the likelihood is it wouldn't be from suddenly starting to play more attractive, expansive football, as we aren't seeing any evidence that we're heading in that direction. More likely it's because one of our front players has picked up a temporary bit of form or we've played a few teams that have come at us.

I just don't see that he's taking us forwards. We might not necessarily be regressing but we're not moving in the direction everyone around the club was expecting.

If he finds a way to breakdown stubborn sides and to control games better then I'd be very confident.

I'm just not sure if he can do either of those things.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

If we hadn't spent the money we have or we didn't have the ambition we now posses then it wouldn't be that much of a issue.

He's a middle of the road manager who will probably achieve that in every season with us, if we let him carry on. We're at the bottom now but the mean for him is about 8th-10th and that's about where we'll finish at the end of the season.

It's just that everything is very average. The style, the tactics, the enjoyment factor... If we're happy to just exist then he'll do fine. If we want more people to get on board with where we're going ahead of a big ground move he's not going to generate the required level of interest and passion. On or off the pitch.

I thought we were all set to sign a left footed right winger as we had Richarlison and Bernard on the left.

I would like to see players who can keep hold of the ball a bit more and I think we will improve after the break with Gomes back and possibly Gbamin, too. Perhaps our board will give him time until then too.

I would like to see;

               Pickford
Sidibe  Keane Mina  Digne
    Gomes Gbmain Delph
  Richarlison Kean  Iwobi

Or

Kean  DCL Richarlison

As the front three at home against sides we should be beating who sit back.
Why bin Coleman off he has been good lately not our most pressing issue at all

I would just switch Richarlison and Bernard round.

I know we'd lose a bit of link up between Digne and Bernard that has looked tasty from time to time - but I can't help but feel Richarlison looks dangerous on the left but toothless on the right.

Interesting this.

I’m. Or saying there is or isn’t something in this, but to make a change like this suggests (maybe just to me) that he’s suspicious about something. He’s saying he isn’t, but why bother fixing anything if it ain’t broken?

Can someone give the gist of the article. I don’t want to click on an echo link as it’s like deliberately getting herpes...

Yeah, it’s not like anyone needs to spy on us to know our tactics

Just breaking down stubborn sides would do me...
