The players DO have to take a big cthunk of the blame.

Some of these professionals are letting us down time after time whoever the manager is.

Martinez is now Belgium manager... Koeman will be Holland's.

Things worked well under both here at first. Did they become bad managers or did the players ?

They are doing the same to Allardyce.

I reckon he just wrote-off the Arsenal game as a damage-limitation job.

It was a disaster in those terms but he was never expecting anything other than a defeat anyway.

Looks like the Palace game was always the target.

Rooney spoke to the players at HT and told them they had to try to salvage some pride and win the 2nd half.

Obviously the team wasnt the best but the players efforts were still poor and the goals very soft.

Rooney:
 "A manager can do so much, set you up and give you a gameplan but as a group of players you need to go out on the pitch, make decisions and take ownership."
