  1. Shakey Sacked

    They weren't "doing it against the big teams" at all. We were well beaten by Man United and Chelsea. The Liverpool and Arsenal games were closer but we're the only side Liverpool have beaten in two months and Arsenal always start slowly.
  2. Shakey Sacked

    Yes, we're shit and seemingly not improving but sacking somebody 8 games after appointing them indicates that the problem is as much the administrators as the manager. Terrible timing immediately following an international break too.

  4. West Brom Post Match

    I've said it before but there's definitely a fitness issue too. We're frequently being picked off at the end of games and barely able to muster an attack of any note ourselves.
  5. Poll - Shakey In or Out?

    Nothing, I am quite conflicted by this as I never thought he should have got the job in the first place and am unsurprised that we're back where we were 8 months ago. Fundamentally though I don't think it's right to say "you're the man" and then make a change after 8 games. I said a few weeks ago that it was fair to judge after 12 games and even if the results weren't good, as long as we were headed in the right direction philosophy/strategy/performance-wise I'd be behind him. That's looking unlikely right now.
  6. Poll - Shakey In or Out?

    Wider issue here is that we missed a golden opportunity to go in a different direction this summer. Whoever comes in during the next international break (I'd say it's getting towards odds-on that we'll have a new manager in place before the Man City home game) will just be fire-fighting through December (when there are 7 games) and will still have the same problems Shakespeare has with regards personnel. Implementing the sort of change this club needs is not going to happen mid-season and nor is it going to happen just by changing the manager. That said Shakespeare, dealt a crap hand, is playing it extremely poorly and can have few complaints if he's given his marching orders in the next month if things don't change drastically.
  7. Poll - Shakey In or Out?

    Not fair to sack him yet but it's hard to see a way back from here.
  8. West Brom Post Match

    They have a set game plan and execute it well. It may not be pretty but it's effective. We don't have anything remotely resembling a game plan, the game seems to happen to us rather than it being something we proactively influence. I thought they were well worth a point.
  9. Update on the above. 2 points from 2 games and no indication that we have anything resembling a game plan. The sneaking suspicion of regression has morphed into a pretty conclusive opinion on it but we'll see what the next 4 games bring. 7 points needed.

    Fuchs has been shambolic today. Worst left back display since I last saw Jeff play there.
  11. West Brom (H) Match Thread

    Look we can't be expected to beat teams like West Brom, Huddersfield and Bournemouth. We should just write those games off and focus on the 2 games against Palace.

    Proper 1/10 performance from Fuchs

    We are the worst side to watch in the league, hands down.

    Do we practice Monday to Friday?
  15. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Watford have won more points in the last minute of their last three games than we have in the last 20 since we won the title. I haven't checked that - in fact I've made it up - but I'm 99% sure it's true. The commitment, desire and above all fitness has not been there in the last two seasons not preceded by a Pearson-scripted pre-season.
