We'll be absolutely fine if we employ a manager with a specific idea of how to play the game.

I honestly think he's just drifting from game to game, pretty much making stuff up.

What happened to the pressing he wanted to implement? Fuck all. He got told by Snods and Stuart that we like pressing on a night out, and then came out with loads of platitudes about it, but doesn't appear to have any actual tactical way of implementing it.

He almost never sticks with the same team or formation 2 games in a row, so it's no wonder the players look like they've never met.

Then he decides to drop/rest Rooney and Gylfi, when surely you need to play one or the other, not rest both! Martina at left back against the strongest team in the group? Sandro dropped from the 18 last week, and suddenly playing. Klaassen suddenly thrown back in? Holgate and Mirallas nowhere near the team and then suddenly thrown back in?

He's lost the plot and is just stumbling from game to game with a mishmash of half baked ideas. We've been playing 2 DMs all season and suddenly last night we end up with none on the pitch. He doesn't have any sort of bleuprint at all.

We can't pass the ball, there's no patterns of play, no partnerships being established, and as a consequence talented players are looking clueless and bereft of ability.

We've been fucking awful in pretty much every game, with no signs of improvement or the emergence of a style. We didn't really deserve to beat Stoke or Bournemouth.

He should've gone weeks ago.
