We don't need to panic. We just need to appoint a better manager, and there are plenty out there.

Shogs should be reprimanded for even mentioning Moyes.

Lost 5 out of the last 6 now, in the league. Pathetic run of results. Should be fired.

The bloke fell to pieces again when a simple thing such as an in game injury disrupted his plans. Shipped Iwobi out of the centre when he'd made a point of keeping him there because it works, moved Sig back in and even went full on mental late on when Davies moved wide right to accommodate Delph on the left, as the third change in that position in one match.

He could somehow beat a struggling Spurs side and it wouldn't mean anything. He's way out of his depth, the only question about him going is timing.


Would've been much better moving Richarlison out to the left, and bringing Kean/DCL on, with the Bernard injury. But he reverted straight back to type again.

True, it's disappointing. Just when you start to think he might have spotted a flaw in his previous thinking you realise you're back to square one.

The actual result is inconsequential really, VAR was diabolical but we might benefit next week. We're not going down and we're not making any ground on the top 6 this season. You just want to see some form of progress and some evidence he's put some serious thought into trying to accommodate the undoubted talent we have.

Yeah, I was broadly a supporter and defender of his last season, especially with that run of results and performances towards the end of the season. Also it was his first season, so I think it was reasonable to give him a grace period.

But the start to the season, the awful results, the over-reliance on Gylfi, the obsession with crosses and the clear, deeply uninspired reversion to type have completely ebbed away any confidence I had in this manager.

I just hope we've got a season left to fight for by the time they pull the trigger.

I hate this bit, where it's abundantly obvious to everyone that the incumbent manager isn't going to be the right one, but we're stuck with him until we have a specific combination of bad results to justify giving him the bullet.

It's like breaking up with someone, and still having to live in the same house for another few months.

You stroke his dreads whilst spooning him and calling him Wobes. There, there Wobes - you’ll get another spot in the 10 if you just keep playing well

Jealousy's not an attractive personality trait. You'd spoon the Wobester as well, if you could.
