This streaming thing is shit. If that's the quality of their offer there's no way I'd pay.

It was obvious that we were getting done down the left and Conor was not offering any protection to Target who was all over the place.
So what does Smith do to correct the situation? Fuck all which sadly is typical of his lack of game management.
Do we really have no other option than to persist with Weseley?
Again piss poor by our management.


Errrrr he took Connor off and changed it around, which is when we looked better.

Wanna hear a joke... Wesley on the pitch for 94 minutes!

We were second to every ball for pretty much the entire match, only losing 2-1 flatters us. If they were winning by five or six most wouldn't have had any complaints.

When it comes to game management and changing things when they're clearly not working, Smith is utterly useless.

MOTM for me was Trezeguet.

A 2-1 hammering. I know it was expected to some extent but I feel really depressed having watched that. So far second best it was ridiculous.

It does annoy me a bit that tomorrow it'll be about how Lampard has gotten some kind of revenge or one over on his old mate, conveniently leaving out the fact that he's playing with our striker and a midfield which includes Willian and Kante.

Who both made our midfield dream team look downright average at best.

Grealish has said multiple times that he doesn't want to play out wide. He's our best player. Play him where he wants to play imo.

I love DS but his game management worries me at times.
There isn’t any.
It is getting a bit repetitive.

Why did nobody have this opinion when he destroyed Newcastle from that position or when he ran the show at Old Trafford for an hour from that position?

Chelsea away is always a horrible fixture. We were okay there before they made it into a shoebox.

I'm aware that you're not the manager, but what would you have done? Kodjia for Wesley maybe, but what else?

Unless we're defending then Jack plays where he wants, he's said so.

Half time was when to make th exchange, not after they’d gone 2-1 up.

Newly promoted side against a well stacked outfit.  We bring on Jota, they bring on Jorginho.  That said, I thought we were our own worst enemy. Terrible defending for the goals.  Mings and Konsa had a night off, timid all over the pitch, stood off in midfield.  We don't quite have enough class yet to compete with these sides.  Wesley?  I'm not sure what people are expecting when there are two players on him and no Villa player around him?  No-one else was any better, or worse than him. They won all the second balls and we looked tired and punchless.  2-1 flatters us. Poor performance and now only 1 point outside the bottom 3.

Well given their experience, and trophy collection, it's hardly a surprise.
