Which is why we should have been playing for clean sheets from the start.
Instead we’ve humbled along with a misplaced idea of just being bolder with selections and approach and that will right all the previous wrongs.
We’ve had 7 games with no cohesion from the previous match.
Admittedly there’s not as much training time, but then use that matches for that instead (as much as possible, at least).
We should be aiming for a clean sheet against these and against Huddersfield.
If we sneak a win (or two...) then fantastic. But if not we at least show that we want to and can defend.
But based on what we’ve seen so far, and that they’re one of the few teams below us, I doubt we’ll get anything other than “going for it”.
Need a coach in as soon as possible to start playing with some cohesion. You did a really good job of allaying some of my fears yesterday when you said that basically we should worry when we’ve seen them with a coach in place who is trying to keep clean sheets.
Imo we were miles better under Koeman than we are right now, and it was still right to bring his reign to a close. Won’t take much to get some positivity back, but we need to start immediately.
Saw a worrying rumour that we have been unable to agree a fee with erwin for letting him go, and so have been unable to replace the manager. Sounds a bit fishy but I don’t like the sound of it.
