Didn't help matters much having Robbie Savage on co-commentary

I coughed up sick in my mouth the second I heard his voice. We were doomed from that moment.

Apparently he was lovely to us. Which some would have struggled with.

Chambers is definitely not an Emery fullback. Too slow - can't bomb forward, can't chase back.

Maybe we should have brought in someone to challenge Cash then? We had all summer to..

Don't be so touchy. I took the chance of a bit of fun having seen the two billys. No malice intended brother. And my username has got nothing to do with U2. Not a fan of theirs especially Bono.

Two things.

1 . I missed that 'silly billy' was a reference to their username.

2: 'Bono-enabler' was a very funny reply.

Bono-enabler went over my head but I guessed it wasn't a compliment.

Bono-Enabler was a working title for an old African Car Reverser demo. Apparently UK Redsox has it on a C60 cassette.

I think it is surprising that a manager renowned for planning and tactical astuteness has been on the wrong end of some right  tonkings so far this season. For me something isn't right.

Recruitment was a mess last summer and the injuries have exposed that. GK, RB, RM/LM ...we still have no cover, Ramsey out and we are moving McGinn over, Cash rested and we have Chambers in yesterday, Olsen comedy show when Martinez is out. McGinn out and we switch I guess Ramsey back over which is ridiculous.

Tielemans was brought in, primarily because he was free, into an area of the pitch where we had lots of options, we should have prioritised cover for McGinn/Ramsey instead. Torres brought in to replace Mings I guess but I really struggle to see how Emery ever thought he would, Zaniolo is talented but brings none of the graft and spirit Buendia did. Diaby to be fair is quality but as a unit we seem to have gone away from what was working so well. Let's just hope Moreno & Ramsey's return improves out left flank and let's McGinn go back to the right.

Yes some good points, which if correct  means we will be taking a step backwards this season which is disappointing after the progress we made last season. There are certainly  questions as to why the recruitment  was so haphazard.

It's my fault. I didn't wear my lucky t-shirt and pants. Saving them for Sunday. League is more important after-all.

We’ve have some shite results so far, but we’ve also got 9 points out of 15 in the league, hardly catastrophic.

Its way OTT to say recruitment was a mess. Torres has had a handful of games and has made mistakes no doubt, but has in most of the games looked a class act in initiating attacks from defence.

Diaby looks a class above anything we’ve had attacking wise in years.

Tielemans, hasn’t worked out yet, but he’s a Belgian international and in terms of how well stocked we are in midfield, we cannot expect Dougie to play every game.

Zaniolo has about 2.5 games all in all, hardly time to make any judgement.

Its hardly Emerys fault that after making his key signings he loses Mings and Beundia for the season and hasnt had two of our best players in Moreno and Ramsey for the first 5 or 6 weeks.

Relentless support regardless of performance doesn't sit well to me, a bit too fascisty.

I noticed their chanting didn't stop, or even drop a beat, when we scored.

I spent most of the match wishing they'd STFU for a bit.

If i want a pointless, distracting, continual drone in the background while I'm watching the football, I'll let the Mrs be in the room when it's on.
All their players got down on their knees and what appeared to me like they were praying in front of feral choir boys. Bit scary that.

Genuinely amazed at this post.

Zaniolo has had a couple of games and has shown plenty of physical presence and graft (the latter of which you don't get at all with Buendia).

Torres wasn't brought in to replace Mings - not sure how that can even remotely be a poor move given Mings copped a season-ending injury on day one?

The entire football world seems to think we had an amazing window.

Jesus, get a grip bb, it is a shit performance and a shit result and we haven't clicked like we did last season, but it is a handful of games and we're already suggesting recruitment was a mess?

Fucking hell.

Zaniolo cant run, if we are meant to be pressing from the front in order to play a high line then he's a liability. He has many other attributes but it's an odd fit for our setup from last season. Emery hardly spent that money on Torres to be Mings backup, I honestly don't know what he sees in him. Playing a high defensive line with a guy who makes Maguire look quick seems crazy.

Yesterday's performance wasn't a one off. If we are honest we have been miles off it so far this season and the two decent teams we have played so far have battered us. Attitude, tactics, even fitness...the basics..we just seem off it so far.
