He needs the season. January will be key as to whether we can get the striker we need in.We all knew the start of the season would be hard. I wouldn't have expected more than 4 points realistically speaking from the games played to date. I'd have expected a draw at home to Spurs while getting beaten by City. I doubt we'll get anything out of Utd next weekend either, but from then on, we need to be picking up points and I'm sure we will.
We basically can't fix things until we get a striker. All this talk about the manager and performance and confidence all comes back around to the fact we haven't got a striker. Fundamentally, can't play how we want to play and how we've prepared to play all summer. We can try and be pragmatic and scrap wins but playing well will mean the manager will have to figure out some other way of playing. And it's not just about missing a key component of your tactics, you want someone on the pitch who can score fucking goals. Even top, well drilled teams will have off days when they'll rely on their striker to turn/win a game out of nothing. We haven't got that.
The only bad results so far this season have been Spurs and and the result last night.Everything else has gone as expected, other than the City game, I'd have predicted a loss there. People losing their heads all over the place
Also the smaller teams..
Performances show that he's losing the dressing room and fairly obvious issues with a couple of players.With regard to lacking a number 10, Koeman said after Burnley we don't have one player with creativity, with that special quality.
