It's like no-one's ever seen a team suffering a crisis of confidence and badly organised before. Keane's not shit. He's just not playing well and is in a team that's a bit all over the place.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Yeah but good teams create and score goals from open play

but we're going in the right direction.

Not for me. 30% possession against the worst team in the league, conceding two goals every game and gone from 15th to 16th in the table today.

He just offers balance. In terms of playing the role of a right midfielder he's really good.

He's someone who likes to link up with players and as with everyone, he era the ball and there's no one writhin 30 yards of him.
I just think, for me, the only time I notice him is when he is defending


Simply simply lovely

I still can't work out how we are the only team this season to stop City winning. And we nearly got all three points there as well.  :)

I suppose at this stage, the relief is that we didn't lose to a team below us. While it was an opportunity to pick up 3 points at the start of the game, it sounds like we were lucky to come away with anything.

Can't afford to be getting bossed around by a team like Crystal Palace.

Should be Unsworth's last match for us.

Crystal Palace have been decent at home, they beat Chelsea not so long ago. They have very similar issues to us really, weak up front (Benteke has been out for most of their games) and leaky at the back. Not to mention fragile confidence.

It was our performance that was the first half looked a lot like the Koeman ones where we had no coherent plan in the final third. Plus ropey in the defence too.

It really should’ve been Unsworth’s last game vs Watford.

We were a little bit better back then. They did have a man sent off and then we defended deep with little ambition. They'd run up a cricket score if we played them now

Honestly can see us conceding 6 or 7 when we come up against a really good attacking side. The Derby is coming up isn't it

Isn't it the mark of a good team to play badly, but still scrape a result..?

I got it ;)

What I mean about going in the right direction is, we're fighting for possession. Teams were walking it in, not so long ago. :)

Kenny built on the game versus Watford with another very solid display. Great cross on him too, it’d be nice to see more of him in the final third.

It will not matter who is our manager against the shite, even Dyche. They will get a cricket score. Best hide away for the day, re-emerge on the Monday and ask what the score was. It works for me just fine and saves a lot of humiliation and misery.

Don't mention the Derby. Haha! It's a nightmare just thinking about it.

I think the concern is that we're pushing on to almost halfway through the season and there are few signs of it improving.
