They’re the sort of pressing sides that worry me right now

Everyone presses to a certain extent these days.

Even Newcastle etc.

Thank the lord that is over .... not the result or performance, but listening to the commentator and pundit who so wanted us to come unstuck was like Chinese water torture... wish they would just read the names out and keep opinions to themselves.

Tossers.

Yeah you must wonder what these commentators say when the likes of Salah is throwing himself around every week, winning fucking penalties. Thought that was a definite pen on Baines, yet he went down too easy, fuck off and watch Salah's " earned" penalties.

We'd smash league 2 no problem though

Exactly. Everyone worries me.

It was the theatrics, man, he’s doing it all the time, and he’s getting nowhere with them.

He was definitely harshly treated at the start of the season, so I understand where his frustration is coming from, but he is starting to get a boy who cried wolf rep

He is definitely gaining that reputation. Won't argue that with you. And a lot of the times he is over the top.

In this situation I just view it more as time wasting than anything else. However, more times than not when he goes down now and moans I just want hime to get up and go on with it. I def get your point of view on it.
Are we there yet?

Got into some good positions on the break but some woeful decisions/ executions of the moves.

Haha. Fair enough.

There aren’t any easy games when you’re at our level, certainly not at the start.

Yeah, it’s both cringe and ineffective

A spiraling Bournemouth at home next week then away to Southampton and Huddersfield. Good opportunity to get in a rhythm.

Alternatively:

A Southampton side under a new manager who has them well drilled, who just held Chelsea to a point at home.

A free scoring Bournemouth side who just turned the corner by coming back from 2-0 down to Watford, with one of the leagues most in-form strikers.

Lost count of the amount of times we were in decent positions out wide but only had one in the box

It was a pretty comfortable win but we are poor in the final third. While I don't disagree that Sigurdsson can be anonymous we have so little chance of scoring without him it's ridiculous

Since December Bournemouth is 2-7-1. I don't think one draw against Watford counts as turning the corner when they followed that up with a 1-3 defeat to BHA.

There aren’t any easy games when your attacking play is predictable with little end product

Yeah, both points are true.

That’s why I wouldn’t mind him played upfront in a 4-3-3
