See I just don't agree that we look really bad, so I suppose that's where we differ. The defence is obviously an issue, but I haven't had a massive issue with our midfield/attacking play, particularly in the Porto/Valencia games which have been our hardest tests.

Think to deny how easy it has been for teams to create clear cut chances against us is a bit blind to be honest?

Iíve said before now that going forward, isnít the final third we will be OK because we have enough attackers to make and score goals once we get up there...but in terms of control, build up and handling pressure - we look really poor imo.

Today was probably our best performance so far to be fair. We just need some quality in areas weíve needed quality for 2-3 years minimum.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I have just said the defence is concerning, so I did acknowledge that.

Did you watch the first half v Porto as well? Dominated them.

I'm ignoring the Blackburn game, because they'd just done a double session and were all fucked. And no way is Jags letting that happen to him again.

Rennes was concerning.

Today I thought we were decent, and it was little individual errors from Baines and Sandro that cost the goals. Didn't recall many clear chances they created tbh. I know Stekelenburg didn't make any saves.

Getting hard to tell the fappers from the ostriches now thereís only 4 days 17 hrs and 15 minutes to go (approximately).
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

Fair enough.

Imo it sounds like Marco is leaning more towards my view atm so hopefully he will being a couple of the right men in, and we can just have a season of getting our heads above water and re-establishing ourselves as a side with less variance in position as most of the rest.

A flapper and an ostrich have just had a perfectly civil conversation, without any rancour and ended up pretty much coming from the same place. Wonders never cease eh?

That's what is so concerning. It feels like teams don't even need to carve out clear cut chances against us. It feels like as soon as we lose possession and they get into our half, they are probably going to score, and that's a scary feeling 1 week before the season starts.

Good point. Itís great that we restricted them to just a few real chances but shite that we conceded three goals out of them.

We highlight that a lot of our goals against are mistakes by us, so therefore itís not as if weíve been carved open, which could be seen as a positive?

Itís doubly worrying though weíre conceding every game from schoolboy errors so we donít even need to be carved apart by good play. I suppose if you buy enough players to swap out the shite it might eradicate that but weíd need another four in this week to achieve that.

..................already linked with Spurs and Leicester last month. Probably just lazy journalism and you'd think he could spell Getafe right.

Never heard of him, desperate for this to be true.

Love this shout.  Electric pace, could do a real job for us.

Not anymore, wasn't good for Stoke last year.
