Ed 002 (especially) , please don't castigate me too greatly for speculating baselessly, but given what you all know of the mindset of the board and the key players, is there any possibility being given to dispensing with Allardyce and moving on Silva now, as opposed to the summer? (if indeed Silva remains well thought of) .

{Ed002's Note - To the best of my knowledge the board are not looking to move SA and CS on at this time. As for Marco Silva, he is speaking to another English side right now so I would not hold your breath.}

I don’t want Silva. He either got totally distracted by our interest or he completely lost the plot. Either way there’s something not right there.

Ed002.I have heard that SA is astonished at the mental strength of our first team, which requires addressing but surely the recruitment/ management of the purchases is a huge issue. Is to your knowledge Steve Welshe's position under review in anyway as he clearly is no DOF?

{Ed002's Note - Honestly, I keep having to answer the same questions over and over - please read the posts, use the search engine.}

Equally cursed and blessed then. Cheers Ed002, much obliged.

Hey all, long time peruser but never contributed owt before; hope you'll bear with me (and the insomnia) .

It isn't turning out quite as we all hoped, is it? But, we've never been the brightest of starters, We can all see the problems: too many 10s, a vanity signing to stir the heart, ageing / absent wing banks, obsessive tendency to play two DMs and a manager who seems incapable of deciding precisely what game he'd like to play. And I have the horrible sinking feeling we'll get precious little return out of this run of games up to Stamford Bridge and the next round of the SuperSpecialFarEasternEnergyDrink Cup. I saw someone else here post they'd settle for 40 points now. I'm not disagreeing.

What I really want to say is though, all feck ups aside (how did we not get a Premiership 'ready' 9. when we had at least 15 months to prepare for that pandered peacock's departure; why no additional centre back, or right back cover; why no confidence in Lookman and Davies at the very least) is that WE ARE STILL INFINITELY BETTER OFF THAN WE'VE BEEN SINCE THE MID 80s. There is absolutely no doubt about it.

I am fully aware that I am a geek, but its the business / financial end that's piqued my interest in recent months, and all the signs say to me Moshiri is in it for the long term. This is not to say SW and Elstone shouldn't have a shot across their bows from the board, or that I have absolute confidence in RK's ability to turn things round, just that we may have to be a little more patient. This season might prove to be little more than one glorified bump on the road to a better future. A transition. Not the one we expected, sure, but at least now we have the MEANS to challenge again. We haven't lost that, whatever our form since August.

Keep the faith, inneh?

Great first post there mate.

Good post Big DFs 1000 yard stare.

3.) 19 Oct 2017 08:29:03
Agree with most of that mate, good post.

We are 100% in a better place than the mid-80s and have a lot to be grateful for, particularly with Moshiri.

All I'd say re patience is that I'd have a lot more of it if we were showing signs of improvement, maybe even if we were just steady but my worry is we're regressing every game.

Koeman and the board made some baffling signings over the summer while not addressing what was most urgent - left footed CB, a RB and a number 9. Granted though they made a couple of terrific signings in Keane and Pickford, but his selections and formations don't inspire any confidence that he'll be able to turn it round.

We blindly pursued the Sigurdsson deal all pre season and were forced to pay over the top for him, during this time we failed to secure more important positional signings, now to frustrate things further we do not play him in the position we bought him to play because we have too many players already.
I would really like to know for all we are paying him what is Steve Walsh's real input? I can't say we have seen a real gem unearthed?

early days but he is promising, but so was Lookman?

7.) 19 Oct 2017 12:13:44
Gana? Calvert Lewin?

8.) 19 Oct 2017 14:50:39
great post, however we are better off than we were in the 80's, but you have to look at spurs, who have have done exactly what we thought we were going to do over the past few years, challenged slowly for the top 6, then cracked top four and are now title contenders for the third year on the bounce. where as plucky little everton have floundered around mid table.

JDE Jones.

You like stats and facts so much? Well, remind yourself of the fixture list prior to Koeman's departure. Think SA would taken much in the way of points?

Our schedule since his appointment has been infinitely more forgiving, no Europe and the majority of fixtures against teams below us on the final day of last season. Two more stats (read facts) for you.

I'm sorry, but SA's football is terrible. If he was capable of fashioning an attacking unit, he'd be doing it now, with PL standing secured. I'd love to see how many times we've started with two DMs since he arrived.

Although he was forgetting to shave and I suspect had lost the dressing room (setting aside questionable Xmas trees) , I'll always wonder if we pulled the trigger on Koeman a tad prematurely. He had a b'stard of a start to the season.
