    Ridiculous to even try to rate the players when we have a manager who stifles their performances, and doesn’t allow them to play football, with his atrocious tactics.
    Might I suggest if you’re going to continue to rate the players performances we’re also allowed to rate the manager. I’ll start it: Rafa gets a 1/10 for the Chelsea game.

      I suspect if you had been the manager you would have played ‘entertaining’ football to obtain a 10-0 loss. The fact is we were on the knife edge of a 1-0 win beaten only by a dubious penalty and an own goal.

        Until they scored we were hardly ever in their half, had well under 20% possession and had only made 25 passes in the half so I’m not sure where the potential 1-0 win comes from. Only going a goal down took the defensive shackles off and we pushed them back for 5 minutes.

        We equalised and repositioned the bus and lost and that’s the fact, dubious penalty yes, but on another day Giroud would have got a free kick for DeYedlin’s accidental elbow.

        Sub 20% possession at home (and it looked we were set up for that) isn’t acceptable, we were playing a good Chelsea side not a Barcelona or Real Madrid… we’ll be under 10% against City

        Agree in part. However, we were never likely to score at 0-0, but the thing is any game is winnable as long as you’re still in it . .

        Why supporters have been brainwashed into believing in these dire tactics is beyond me. It’s not football nor, is it in the spirit of the game. Remarkable how many actually believe in this approach.

          Yes a very hard game to watch or get excited.. seems more like a setup to avoid a big embarrassment ig.. i just remembered Man city beating Huddersfield 6-1 last week..
          I knew we were going to go with back five this week but hoped we would put up a display like we did against spurs since it’s a home game and all.
          But the gulf in quality between both teams are visible along the forward line..
          Maybe losing 2-1 is better than 6-1 ig at home

        • SuperDesHamilton

          The lack of awareness you posses is astounding, thick doesn’t even cover it like. Let’s play all out attack with our world class players like Diame & Murphy! Have that world class Paul Dummett bombing down the wing like a Welsh Roberto Carlos & terrorise chelsea! Absolute fantasist you like. It’s 2018 not 2002

  • Paul Patterson

    15 minutes away from job done. Sadly, we simply don’t have the quality. It’s going to be another season of damage limitation . .
