Appears the manager wants out, the players want the manager out, and the fans want the manager out. Is there anywhere else to go with this.

Absolutely no evidence to suggest the players want the manager out is there, unless you have inside information that I dont? I thought the commitment was there for all to see last night, quality was missing but it didn't look like the players had downed tools!
And Im a fan and I dont want the manager out (just yet)

Results would suggest otherwise, or that the players are not good enough (which I don't feel is the case). They gave it a go for about 20 minutes second half that's all I saw. We have been incapable of giving a 90 minute performance under Koeman but for the majority of this season they just have not shown up at any point, would that not suggest there is more to it as in the players have had enough?

Results would suggest otherwise? Are you inferring the players are losing games because they want Koeman out, if so then id sack the lot of them. My take is were losing games cause we've got strikers that couldnt score in a brothel (minus Rooney for obvious reasons!!)
Performances have been bad cause weve got no end product. Add a target man like Giroud/Pelle and the whole world changes, Sigurdsson has someone to aim to, the midfielders have someone to run off of, it isnt rocket science that out whole recruitment campaign was focused around delivering to a big lump, and we didnt get it.

Then that makes the long drawn out saga of the sig even more damning. And who wanted him THAT bad?...steo forward big Ron.

Yes Koeman did want him, and why not? Hes proven to be the best around at doing what Koeman wants from his team, delivering quality balls into the box. Did Koeman expect the board to fail so bad by not getting a striker in to utilise Sigurdssons main attribute, I doubt it!
And are you really blaming Koeman for the transfer of Sigurdsson taking that long, no wonder he needs a holiday so much if he does all the transfer negotiations too!!

We had Klassen,Rooney we did not NEED to focus that much on sig. We should have had another option to Giroud and followed that. Even if we got Giroux another striker would have been preferable to another #fucking 10

Not getting a striker or the time it took to get Sig are not under Koemans control, or am i missing something? Yes he did say he wanted him but the club could have easily said no, were covered in that area, the club decided to drag out negotiations for months only to then basically pay what Swansea wanted in the first place, not Koeman. My view is that Sigurdsson is still better than Rooney and Klasseen so im happy, but I fail to see what this has to do with Koeman.

Ok. Sigurdson. Martina.were imo Koeman led signings. We needed other options and did not get them.
Now you can say it's not down to him. But I doubt the club would have gone as far and paid as much if Koeman had said NOT had input.
He is the.man who picks the team. It's his head on the block. So if the club did put the focus on sig while not getting the striker. Do you think he would just accept it? Or would he be more aggressive and state that the club didn't do as he asked?

I think thats a given that the board didnt do as he asked, he stated the importance of a left back and centre forward on numerous occasions. He is still an employee of the club and venting about the boards lack of vision or ambition in the press is hardly going to help, although I expect this has been expressed behind the scenes.
And of course he has an input into signing players but its not his job to deliver them.

@Waltzer your in a combative mood today with some well thought out counter arguments, you didn't happen to snot a Lyon player last night did you?  ;)
:) I was in the comforts of my own home im happy to say.
And I just think where we are at the moment is highlighting a much bigger problem than Koeman, he might be seen as one of the problems but I genuinely dont see how another manager could get significantly better results with our strike force. I may well be wrong as I have been on numerous occasions, we'll see, but I think placing all blame on Koeman is bit OTT!! :)
