Keane isn't the issue as such in defence. A total lack of pace in the centre is. Even are DM's aren't quick enough or powerful enough.

1st goal he was the weak link. 2nd goal, he should be cutting out cross at front post.

Those were only the ones they scored from, he let Benteke in behind a couple of times, plus several others.

At this point this is a good result. Don't care how we get points on the road, just get them.  A point next weekend and then Come back home and grab 3 and we'll be fine.

In my opinion we just need to not lose a game up untill the derby. Hopefully the players can build some confidence and then we can actually show up for it.

I'm talking generally not about today as such. He's been poor to average but any defender would struggle to settle in this team right now. A quicker partner would benefit him greatly

Exhibit A. Loftus-Cheek given space and easily turned to get shot away.

That sounds nice in theory but it's not that straightforward. It's not like Unsy, or Koeman before him, have no specific ideas that they are trying to implement, that they think will work to win football games, and that they are working on in training. Of course they are, that's why they get paid a shit load of money. 

Our problems to me seem to run deeper than figuring out the right formation and game plan and I'm struggling to be honest to know exactly what it is that needs fixing.
Yep. The consensus has been that Koeman was a shit manager, so all we need to do is get a decent manager and we’ll be back in contention to finish 6th.

Much more to it than that.

Doesn't matter who's alongside him, opponent chooses who to isolate or focus on.

As I said before he's a good defender, very good passer. He just has a weakness and it's constantly exploited.

the first was bad more because the team just didn't switch on as a whole

I feel like Pickford should have done more on the 2nd though, he has to be anticipating a cross into the 6yd box from where the player is

Lot of Twitter folk going ape shit, saying Niasse should be banned for diving

No worse than the likes of Alexis Sanchez and others do every week.

10 points off 7th now.

No way we are making that up.

What a job Dyche is doing.

Jagielka and Pickford are trying to rescue a situation that shouldn't have got as far as them. You can't always cut out every cross and sometimes you'll get caught out, but this is simple ones on regular basis. It's not all his fault, he's just not quick enough.

Back a couple of years and you'd be playing big lumps and he's in his element. But with quick players and movement, he's someone you have to carry or cover.

Behave, loads of games left, we'll be there or thereabouts, Burnley will end up in the bottom half
