The Wife’s Decided To Move Out…

8 years ago

I’ve never been so mad (even when watching us lose to 5under1and in the play-offs in the 80s) as I was when watching that pathetic performance against West Ham Yesterday. Then to make things even worse I saw an article elsewhere headed ‘Hammers didn’t let us play admits Pardew’.

Well that just pushed me over the edge – the dog’s in a garden 3 doors down the way and the wife’s decided to moved out for a couple of days.

The red mist has descended and there’s nothing anyone can say or do, Pardew’s getting paid half a million quid a year to serve up that nonsense and everyone in the game knew what formation Allardyce was coming with and how they would play…BECAUSE HE SETS HIMSELF UP EXACTLY THE SAME WAY FOR EVERY AWAY GAME!

Pardew knew it would be 4-5-1 with Carroll up top and with Noble and Nolan sprinting up the park for the 2nd phase ball coming off Carroll, guess what, he did us again.

Brendan Rogers came across a 4-3-3 / 4-5-1 formation against Chelsea and countered it with a 3-5-2 and could quite easily have won the game. Whereas we just continued to be frustrated with that pathetic 4-4-2 formation letting them control the middle of the park and get us on the break, it was so predictable I couldn’t watch it in the end.

Alan, you’re better than this, sort it out!

What do you think – Is Pardew losing the plot or are his players not performing, or are they simply not doing as they’re told?

Why are we so bad this year with the same playing staff?

Help me…I need to calm down!
