I was at the game last night and won't go on about individual performances but it was not good!
However my real issue is our lack of young player development, I see Citeh and Liverpool playing young academy players apart from Anthony Gordon who had a decent game nothing and I felt sorry for Simms sitting on the bench watching Rondon labour with no result for 90 mins!

Yeah I felt sorry for Simms as well. If he didn't get a game yesterday when will he get a game? Personally I thought Rondon was awful, not that he did anything bad, apart from sky it about 10 yards over the bar from 4 or 5 yards, but just that he did nothing. He wasn't involved in the game at all. He's to slow and cumbersome, if he's not match fit then fine, but to be that unfit he shouldn't be playing.

He's come from 3rd rate football in the middle east to the premier league, but seriously this club of ours is showing so many signs of mismanagement, and too many bad judgement calls regarding recruitment! which again makes me ask the question about Brands contribution? If Moise Kean is an example then the whole thing is a farce!

Good post Wakka. Did you see the looks on Bill Kenwright when Sky put the camera on him. Could have turned milk sour.

I think he is unfit. I think Rafa is getting him match fit.
He’s a decent player actually when fit - I think he’ll get 10+ Goals this season.

I agree Sobs Bill K is unfit, but 10 goals a season. ??.

Rondo is clearly not fit but did work hard so at least he's got a decent work ethic.

Very funny lhrblue - I’d love to see Kenrights celebration if he scored 1 mind.
I think he’s a top bloke myself and think he’s been a true blue - maybe he’s a bit out his depth but I don’t think we can knock him.

Rondon is the wrong side of 30, there’s a reason he went to play in a weak league.

Please don't compare us to city and Liverpool. We are nowhere near their quality and squad. It's easy to throw a few in when you have the quality they have.
We just aren't in a position to blood them as the majority of our squad players are terrible.
Iwobi had most fooled for a couple of games but now he's back to being dreadful.
Anyone who watched us last season knows Davies and Gomes can't be played together and neither can Godfrey and Holgate.
