Are you really a blue ? If you are hang your head in shame ! By all means slag of the management but not someone putting a shirt on and we have not yet kicked off.

Yay!!

Less than eleven hours into 2018 and we have our first "you're a shit blue" shout on a match day thread

Who had "before noon" in the sweep?

It’s a shame Lukakus not playing really, think it would have made for a real nasty intense atmosphere which in turn always leads to a high tempo do or die game, which would obviously gives us more chance than lining up with 9 men on the edge of our own box.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

I honestly can’t think of a team to put out that could trouble these, even with their issues. Niasse up front due to DCL being dead is the only obvious one.

I’d be tempted to play Lookman, Klaassen and Sandro in this one because they're well rested and at some point their quality has to show. Lookman has looked good at times as he was being phased in gradually. It's unfortunate that we have also been trying to phase in Klaassen, Sandro, Keane, Sigurdsson and Vlasic at the same time. It's just not easy to phase this many players in to get up to speed in the Premier League and it's even harder when the team they're being phased into are playing absolutely shit.

Regardless - they all have my 100% support and I hope they do well.

Palace and Brighton showing that with real wide attackers you can create chances and hold your own in games.

Vlasic, man.

He has impressed me every time, with his endeavor, strength, ball retention, and attacking intent.

However, neither Unsworth or Allardyce have seemed to trust him so I guess I'm wrong.

In the Europa dead rubber him and Lookman ran the show from the wings (yeah, I know it was a bit of a friendly match in essence, but surely we've got to start trying to take the game to the opposition rather than defending deep and en masse and hoping for the best)
Dignity does not consist in possessing honours, but in deserving them

I don't think its as simple as being right or wrong on Vlasic.  I rate him too, certainly over Lennon.  He has lost critical possession when I've seen him too.  Maybe that's the issue.  Or maybe there are non-football reasons that we don't know about.  I think a lot of fans just watch a handful of games and concoct formations and line ups based upon what is a tiny part of the picture.  But even that doesn't make anybody wrong.  I do think that you have to trust the judgement of people who know the entire picture though.  It doesn't happen much on here.  The usual routine is to slag off whoever the manager is and ask questions later.  Happened with Koeman, Unsworth and now Allardyce.

Said before that apparently he’s fallen out with the club. Not the manager, the club. Agent wanted talks with the club hierarchy when Unsworth first dropped him. It was all ‘my client could’ve joined Inter Milan, and he’s not even getting into a struggling team, we’ll assess the situation in the summer’. Didn’t go down well. Could (and probably is) just a rumour though.

Agree. I try to give managers (and players) a bit of slack as there are always other factors we’re not aware of.

I remember slagging off Moyes no end because he continued to overlook Van Der Meyde even when we were crying out for width and creativity. Turns out he was smacked off his tits and shacked up with a stripper. My bad. I’ll apologise to Moyesy if I ever meet him.

And having read Ossie’s book; the amount of times he went out on the pitch when he was technically ‘match fit’ but in reality was nursing knee and ankle injuries and was being held together with sticky tape...well, I take back some of those ‘cunt’ sounds. Sorry Ossie.

All very cathartic, this.

I didn't slag off the manager.

In fact, I stated that I was clearly wrong if both Unsworth and Allardyce disagreed with me.

However, I stand by the original point; being passive and vaguely reactive is going to bite us on the arse if it is our default modus operandi.

Twitter, where else. Ped from ToffeeTV did mention it a few times a while ago.

Probably just rubbish, but would explain the situation.
