You saw through it

I had an inkling. Which is more than some unfortunate souls on here.

You've got to laugh at least a little bit though haven't you.

As if we didn't know it before but a senior communications director wouldn't go amiss.

Not a Koeman fan no. He is a Moyes dressed up in Ancelotti clothes. He is a defensive Frank De Boer.

It's not a bad description that Con. To be fair we are still waiting to see what preferred style and formation we're going to be playing and he's been here over a year. He does spit his dummy out publically too much for me, for a manager who hasn't really achieved much in the game, regardless of his playing career.

In a season of upwards towards 60 games to go into it with one left back is pretty poor. Especially when that left back is 32 and has a history of ankle problems which you'd ideally want to protect him from.

Luke Garbutt?

Martina played out there pre season. Didn't do too bad, although you wouldn't want him there too often.

Im struggling to see why we let Barry go as he could ad has played as CB and leftback, granted he isnt the quickest but Koeman must've been given assurance that we had someone for him to authorise this mopve?

You wouldn't really want Gareth Barry at left back though, he'd be skinned by my nan let alone a professional athlete.

Or I'd sit down with Luke Garbutt, a natural left back and one who showed promise not so long ago, and tell him there is a potential chance to make a career here now so knuckle down and you'll get some game time in the cups first and see how we go.

Isn't that usually the case with any loss?

Not really. Losing at home against your rival for a European place would rank higher than losing away at the current champions for instance.
