I think everyone appreciates it was a difficult ask to essentially replace all our attacking players overnight. But he had more money than any previous manager or team that finished below us. We go to big clubs and roll over for a tummy tickle and struggle to impose ourselves or seem to have much of a plan on how to create chances, let alone good ones.
I don't see Koeman understanding how to use crowd to his advantage, how to use subs to not just change the style of play, but also give the crowd a lift and change the momentum. We were unlucky to go behind, but we needed changes at half time, or very shortly after when things continued where they left off in first half.
Davies is not Platini, but he has come on and changed momentum of games. Him and Niasse showed one of few signs of being able to link up, and they get separated and he brings off Vlasic who had looked more lively than most.
The players we have are clearly better than they are showing. Koeman situation seems opposite end of Martinez situation, in that Koeman seems unwilling to shed his defence first mentality, or have an idea about how to get a team to create.
