Batshuiyi, cahill, christenson all played pl games
Zapucossta big money signing
Rudiger too


We had more young/reserve players on the pitch than they did.

He showed too much faith in certain players today.

Sigurdsson has shown over the last three seasons he's a top player whereas Rooney? No so much.

DCL isn't enough of a goal threat as much as I like him. Niasse would have been a better option, especially away from home.

Davies in a midfield 2 just doesn't work. Play Schneiderlin if he's fit enough to make the bench.

Not much choice in the back 4 so can't criticise him much. Perhaps Holgate for Kenny but even he gave away a stupid penalty against Lyon.

Might have even been better countering their back 3 with one of our own but that's hindsight.

Agree with all except niasse shout. DCL is a target at least so I think the team is better off with him opposed to oumar

I don't see the point in having a striker to make it stick when he can't score goals anyway.

At least Niasse has a knack of scoring terrible goals

Yes I agree. Just thought that stat of 4 points off 8th was a bit daft

Can only assume you missed the point of that post I made about only being a small number of points away from 8th.

In no way shape or form was it a way of saying that we were going to finish there, it was to show that there is so much left of the season that despite being miles off that position, it is actually only two games worth of the correct results.

That is why it was silly that people were calling us relegation contenders in November. If were 15th in February/March then its a different story.

I cant think of a compelling reason from his caretaker spell why another club would employ him as manager, but I wish him well.

7 points from 5 games like
