  • Paul Patterson

    3-4s across the board. I suppose you get that for pulling the shirt on and making it on to the pitch..

  • Rob

    Ritchie seeking to blame others for mistakes leading to goals really irritated me.

    Diame, Joselu, Manquillo should not be anywhere near first team in a premier league club.

    • Big Al 1967

      Especially when the goals all come down that side and the wing back heavily involved which essentially was his man.

      • 1957

        They didn’t have a clue who was to deal with the wing back on their left, he had a free run all game. Either the players didn’t follow instructions or it was a blunder by the manager and coaches. I’ve only seen Watford once, on tv last week, and even though I’m not a Champions League winning tactical genius I could see the left wing back could cause us problems.

          Our right hand side has been poor for months now but ritchie knows he wont be dropped and same goes for yedlin

  • fistsofsteel2

    Is Rafa deliberately sabotaging our chances of winning with his team selections? Since Merino, Perez, and Lascelles have been out of the first team we’ve looked woeful.
    Perez gets some stick on here, but his workrate, harrying of the midfield opposition, and application to his defensive duties are sorely missed. Bring him back.
    If Merino hasn’t got 90mins in him, don’t use him as a sub…..start with him and sub him when he’s tired.
    And the greatest mystery of the age – why, oh why, is Joselu a first team choice? Especially by a supposed ‘good’ football manager like Rafa. When Mitrovic came on he instantly provided more prescence and link up play – he done more in 20mins than Joselu has managed in three games.
    And what is the point of Diame. He’s diabolically bad.
    Rafa OUT.
