Maybe we should wait until we actually sign players before slating the business? Or better still until they have actually played some games.

We have all been guilty of getting excited about players who have not delivered, and like wise being underwhelmed by some who have. So not sure we know enough to judge.

So frustrating reading people get angry about some NSNO click bait rumour.

Why do people still get so upset when media outlets link us to someone, most of the time they are completely made up and are based on links to managers or DOF, or club interested last transfer, it’s all complete utter nonsense.

I've never been excited about any of the players we have bought over the past few years.

I have to be honest, right now feels a lot like when Big Sam took over, only there is much more respect for Carlo so he is not copping much flack for results, which I am pretty sure are worse.

But ultimately we look uninspired, unmotivated, and unorganised and a lot of that has to come from the boss.

But where CA is not to blame is that he has no options, no way of dropping Gomes or Sigurdson or Davies, because no one else can play there. I don't even think he has 11 players who even want to be at the club anymore. Half the squad at least are either injured or unwanted, and they know it too.

So really the issue is and has to be Moshiri, he's taken poor advice, paid over the odds for unproven players, or even players proven not to be quite at the level we want to get to (Sigurdson) and the end result is a bunch of overpaid mercs who have no love for the club. Richarlison is about the only player I ever watch and think, yeah he cares. And the sad fact is, the only way out of this mess is to sell him and use that money to sort our selves out, and start another 5 year plan because right now every team and his nan are passing us on the way to Europe.

Moshri or any owners for that matter doesn’t pick players. The scouts must have convinced him to sign them.

I'm ready to be berated for this but here goes.

For me Silva has to stay now. The moment to let him go was post Norwich, and to my mind the powers that be have made the decision to stick and should dam well stand by that decision and if it goes south then more than just Silva need to face the consequences.

What I don't want is speculation, and fan abuse week in week out. Sunday wasn't the result but it was better, and anyone who says otherwise is simply trying to turn the knife - which quite frankly is not needed at this point.

The only thing for me that would be better at this point than sacking Silva and getting someone else in, would be for us to buck the trend, stand by our man and for things to turn around. We have tried firing and re hiring over and over, and since I don't have any faith in us making the right appointment we may as well, as fans try and get behind what we've got!

Could be that the manager we want has not been available until now.

2.) 02 Dec 2019 15:45:31
Yes, we played better yesterday than we have in a while but the change to formation that Silva went with second half put us under pressure and. as is usual for us, we crumbled. We've conceded four or five goals in injury time this year which is obviously not good enough. Is it a lack of fitness or is is due to the tweaks the manager makes mid-game?
You're right mate, the time to get rid was after the Norwich game but I don't think there is any going back for him right now, if we lose our next game then he has to walk, things aren't getting any better and we are dropping perilously close to the relegation zone. He looked like a man that had accepted his fate when their second goal was given yesterday, the board need to take a look at themselves for hanging Silva out to dry. He hasn't covered himself in glory during his tenure but, just as importantly, neither have the board. It's turned into a shocking mess mate.

Felt like we corrected all our mistakes from the Villa game today and was a great match to watch as well!

We mixed it up, Wolves had a plan to occupy our full backs, and we
owned it. Although I don't think he was necessarily the best player today - that accolade could go to any of the guys down the spine of the team, Siggy, Mina or Delph - Iwobi makes a huge difference to the balance of this side for me. He gets about the pitch so well, creating more space and options for Siggy to work with mea ing we can switch play and work all the way accross the pitch when going forward, love it.

My personal view on last night, and our 2 biggest issues in the game.

Gomes was woeful, literally one of the worst performances I have seen from any Premier league midfielder in a long time. I seem to recall it took a few games for him to hit his stride last year, and sincerely hope this is the case again.

Literally everything was being sent to Digne, yes the lads been class but he is not Ronaldo. He can't win games single handily but it felt like that was our plan last night. It meant Richarlison was barely included in the play and was largely unable to get into the game. Siggy was poor but we weren't really trying to play through him it was just 100% down the left.

Once Iwobi/ Kean came on, you could see the change immediately. Iwobi was picking up the ball in the left, but then was spreading the ball all across the front line and bringing others into play. Sadly was too little too late, and the best chance fell to Theo who as many of said, should not be in the match day squad.

Still hopeful for the season, but a couple more like this and I will be struggling to defend against the onslaught of doom.

We had the money once to spend wisely with minimal risk and blew it massively. That means now the only way forward is through some canny dealing and some risk taking.

To be honest some of our best business has been when we've been forced to be canny, so I for one look forward to what happens.

If we can get Rafinha in for 15m I think it's worth the gamble. At least the gamble isn't his ability. Or maybe I'm just biased because I'm from Worcester too.

And you expect us to be first choice for anyone at the moment? We just need players who play with commitment, they can grow to love the club but unless they are local I sincerely doubt we would be first choice for many top class players currently.
My concern specifically with hjolberg is that he has given up at Southampton since deciding he would leave, so I'd question his commitment.

Whilst I understand why you are having a rant. You have drifted into just nonsense.

Poisened chalice you say? Moyes went onto to be United manager, Koeman and Martinez both landed top international jobs. Allardyyce certainly didn't harm himself either. Despite the performances in the pitch, we will still be able to attract managers.

However, just like the 20 goal striker, these 'top' managers simply don't exist in the abundance many on this site would have you believe.

So many times the question of who is asked, and other than Rafa who is clearly not the answer very few names are ever touted.

We shout about needing Premier league experience blah blah, but how many of the managers at the top clubs had it when they joined? Pep, no, Klopp, no, Emery, no, Lampard, no, yes a couple did the majority cut there cloth at the top European clubs before having success here. And we will not attract Champions league winning coaches. So we have to be a bit more speculative.

How many current Premier league coaches would you opt for if given the choice? Howe - maybe, the rest - no.

I rate Digne highly but I think to be the best he needs to do more of what he did for Richarlisons goal on Wednesday - which is get the ball in early. As much as I hate to say it, that is what makes the Reds fullbacks so effective, but is really just down to better coaching rather than them being better players.


{Ed025's Note - i think he crosses just as good as robertson EFCONE, and his free kicks are better than both of them mate..

Wow, that is some leap of doom you have made right there?

Just so I'm clear, on the basis of one game between 2 teams who are not Everton on the 2nd weekend of a football season. You now know it will be a long hard season? Really?

Are you ignoring the fact that most teams play better against better opposition, us included?

Or that judging 2 teams level based on a match between them with no other form to qualify the standard of said two teams is simply ridiculous?

Top 4 is now a bust. Last 2 or 3 seasons it has been there for the taking, and we have got further away. Chelsea and UTD seem to be back on an upward trajectory City can now spend, and I won't even mention the gap to the reds.

Europa, not likely, so I would expect more of the same next season unless Brands does something sensational in the market and let's be fair our track record with that is not great.

Honestly probably Richarlison, Holgate, Calvert Lewin and Digne.

I read the question as who I thought was a great signing when it happened, and if I'm honest Lukaku was the one.

If we are talking in hindsight, can only be Coleman.

Right up until yesterday, I still had a glimmer of belief that we could turn this around. Even in our worst seasons we almost always put up a brave spirited fight against Liverpool. We lose, but we fight. With the exception of Richarlison yesterday we had no fight, no spirit and that glimmer of belief was thoroughly stamped on.

So yes right now I would take Sam, Moyes (but not Hughes) or anyone else as long as it isn't Silva.
