Don't worry about it, I get called an idiot regularly ;)

I do think pace in the forwards is important still but I think in this particular game the switch to a diamond worked.

I also get that people are feeling shit about the results, and worried about the situation and after the match a lot of people just want to vent because it's hard to watch and it hurts.

But I don't think, once things have calmed down, we should just say 'everything's shit' because there is a way out of this.

We should maybe switch to a Moyesian 451 for the time being, protect the defence better, work hard and try to graft a few results out, not just play on the front foot.

We need to build confidence before we start trying to play more expansive football.

4-5-1 demands a striker, or offensive player, that is disciplined, holds the ball up and is the fulcrum of the attacking play. We don't have that kind of player in the squad.

I'd love to agree with you, I really would.

There are few questions in which Sam Allardyce is the right answer.

In a game of Man versus Food which man would you nominate to win that battle?

Heavy to hear Keane has been hospitalised with an infection on the gash on his leg.

Could be out for a while with an injury like that.

I think DCL and/or Rooney can do that job if you drum into them that they are going to be leading the line, don't drop deep and do a bit of a thankless task for the team.

I don't mean playing garbage football either. You can play some decent stuff with a 451 but just be much more compact and not be upset if we're 0-0 in games at HT. We need wins and clean sheets to build any sort of confidence.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Big love to you, Todd, and your dad, and John of course 👍🏼

@Django any idea of his thoughts on Lookman, Vlasic, and Sandro?

Not a clue mate. I'd suggest he would rate Lookman. As for Vlasic, I think he's got a knock.

Sandro - who knows. Looks like he plays with banana skins on his feet. Way off the standard necessary IMHO.

Hate watching from behind the goal. Can't judge movement on the pitch from there. Although o be fair it didn't look like we had any!

Sad state of affairs when Niasse is our most dangerous player and is so offensively shite on the ball.

Imagine if he became manager.

We could get him and the equally behemoth-headed Joe Royle to butt heads like stags for the amusement of the players.

I can't remember when we shipped so many goals, in this many games! Also I think we can kiss Europe goodbye. After today's game I really think were in trouble, not because we lost, but the way we lost, Hang on brothers and sisters, its going to be a long season :(
