220M what? Koeman has just said we spent 54 - 50M - look at the Echo report of his statement that we spent only a little more than Huddersfield. I cannot find an Echo interview video to show him talking about this and his own job. The one described as a preview of the Burnley game is not the one. If someone can find the interview which talks about what was spent and about himself feeling like "shit" after the game and whether he might be sacked or not, I would like to see it.

No it's not 220m net, of course. But he has spent 220m on HIS OWN players in a year and a bit. That's still a vast amount of money for the overwhelming majority of clubs in world football, aside from the elite. And here we are getting dominated for large portions by a team 8th in the Cypriot league.

We probably need to take 4 points minimum off Lyon to stay in the Europa League already. It's not even close to good enough and there are no excuses with a 220m outlay (which most managers would dream of).

it is shocking that he is not worried, even more shocking that he doesn't see his team selection/formation and the style of the team as worrying, If the the vast majority of the fans can see it, why can't he??

Sounds slightly defeatist and accepting of the inevitable to me, referencing his sacking at Valencia without being prompted to. That's quite an insight into his thinking.

The calls for Unsworth are ludicrous. Koeman might get us into the top half. 7th will be a very good achievement with this unbalanced squad.  Otherwise maybe we should go for Uncle Roy after he is sacked at Palace?

He fashioned the 'unbalanced squad' with 220 million nicker. 7th is the absolute bare minimum, not 'a very good achievement'.

Top half and piss poor cup performances is nowhere near good enough anyway.

can you see a system being played?

It's a 4-4-2 with the wide players tucking in, as hill said earlier.
