Well guys, girls and eds. the dawn of possibly one of our biggest games in many years up there with cup finals and promotion from championship. tomorrow is massive and although not damming, I think anything but a win is a bad result. Hopefully we can upset them and their fans and west ham get deducted points for being uncontrollable in their £5 a year rent football stadium, for which we pay the policing and security for . hopefully a massive win and any fan brave enough to venture to west ham stays safe. come on you saints!

Well that's that #hughesout.

3 goals. all from our possession given away . awful awful goals. worse half of football I've ever seen. and I was at the spurs saints cup game when we lost 6-2 years ago. grobbelar in goal!


3.) 31 Mar 2018 16:56:35
No confidence at all in the team
Men against boys today West Ham wanted it more than us we were a joke from start to finish
I wish something would change but it’s like ground hog day
To good to go down
I don’t think so after today.

Van dijk who? in all seriousness what an absolute amazing performance from our defensive unit and all. no telling what that will do for confidence. if only Tadic had of gone down like he'd been shot when Ashley young elbowed him. wonder if he'll face retrospective.

rayzer

1.) 30 Dec 2017 19:51:05
Where did that come from, got a feeling FF has played his last game this season McCarthy did exactly what he doesn’t do commanded the area and came out of the 6 yard box with confidence. Why has it taken so long to get him between the sticks? Do you think us telling the club for ages has helped. Man U were pretty poor, Boufal and Hojbjerg were outstanding.


2.) 30 Dec 2017 20:44:11
Agree with the most of what you said, especially about Mccarthy. But I thought Boufal was pretty poor today. So many passes going straight to United players. But we defended very well today. Very tense game shouting at the TV as always though.


3.) 30 Dec 2017 22:27:21
May I say I am not in agreement with a fair few of my saint fans inregard to FF he's a great goalie that souldn't be underrated more over be valued. Yes he hasn't been at his best this season but he's committed himself to saints that would never be taken granted.

You wishful guys out there may wish he players for Liverpool in a couple of weeks time?

Personally I hate the fact we again in process of going backwards as we paid indirectly the 200 million backk to Southampton new owners.

Only another 125 million to go! I've been asking for while they invest some money to buy Eastleigh FC so it becomes just like a Barcelona B team.

It can become our Academy's wing to bring through many more youth players! This way they can share our training ground as there is no conflict of insterest and would safe costs. I hope you guys agree with me?


4.) 30 Dec 2017 23:47:36
Ff is a good keeper. He's been suffering with awful form for a year. He's lost his club and country place which isn't a decision taken lightly I'm sure. What I saw today from McCarthy us a gk commanding his area, who looked mobile and ability to get down with good decision making. I don't know whether Ff lost confidence after his injury or having a crisis of confidence but a gk instills the confidence throughout the team. Ff has caused anxiety amongst the back four.

I'm not saying McCarthy totally has sorted that today but it was great to see a goalkeeper claiming crosses and holding low shots as opposed to shoveling them away. he deserves to start again Tuesday.


5.) 30 Dec 2017 23:54:32
I disagree with almost everything you said there 4th. Some of it just makes zero sense, and he bit about FF I just don’t really understand your point. We should be grateful he’s been awful, because that way he won’t leave?


6.) 31 Dec 2017 09:55:08
Ok 123 you have your views fair play.
All I am saying he's out of form and for a while so deserved to be dropped. However, I am hoping that my follow saint fans can tamper their views to be more constructive and suport him in both good and bad times. Reaching out to a player in bad form can make a player feel better about themselves.

Please step into his shoes right now and ask yourself how would you be feeling?

Nobody sets out to have a bad day at the office but it happens to us all from time to time. Believe me FF has the ability to be a top top player when his form returns. You guys can help make the difference by giving him the support when he needs it the most. FF has committed himself to Saint for rest of his playing career that shouldn't under valued in my view.
Imagine how you would feel if you saw with own eyes the difference you made when his form returns?
I remember when he returned form injury after several months out and kept 6 clean sheet in a row and we shot up the league table because of that form.
We are suppoters So please please support him when he needs you the most.
Sing his name while he sits on the bench over the next couple of weeks he will train harder and feel better about himself because that support. Slowly his form will return because you did your job and supported him.
Believe me it's a win win. Don't be a hen pecker choose to be a supporter.


7.) 31 Dec 2017 10:27:50
Not trying to be cynical but when you say he committed his future to Saints I don’t know what you mean, if you mean he signed a contract then that is not a commitment. VVD signed a 6 year contract and then look what happened. I don’t want to run FF down too much but your point of the clean sheet business was primarily down to our top class defence at the time and if you look at his shots against and save ratio it wasn’t that impressive. FF is a fair keeper at his best but not flexible enough to play at PL level in my opinion. Don’t know why but watched McCarthy yesterday and felt confident. Might go pear shaped on Tuesday who knows but his all round ability and reading of the ball seems superior to FF on this single occasion. We’ll see what happens.


8.) 31 Dec 2017 11:59:27
That's a very human and kind view you've taken with regards to FF 4thelove. if I were to step in FF sizeable boots right now I'd feel embarrassed at being paid £70+k a week, putting in shocking performances, losing my England and saints place. I'd feel like I needed to seriously up my game, train harder, work harder, play much much better and battle to regain the trust of my manager, teammates and fans. He should have been dropped a while ago and they stuck with him. fair enough. But he has been very poor for sometime.


9.) 31 Dec 2017 12:33:18
Believe he may actually be our top earner .100 grand a week. that would make me feel a bit better about things while my beautiful girlfriend waited at home while I drove to the golf club in my sports car.


10.) 01 Jan 2018 05:33:41
Of course we’re all entitled to our views 4th.

I don’t see your point about criticisms hurting him, I highly doubt FF is reading these posts and part of his job as a professional footballer, and a well paid one like that, is to be thick skinned and deal with criticism. The media and fans pay his salary, and they have a right to openly debate his performances. So in the nicest possible way, I don’t really care how the criticism feels for him.

Bad days at the office and dips in form happen, but this has gone beyond that now. It doesn’t help that by all accounts, including one of the Eds on the site, his work ethic could be better. I’ve seen many interviews in which he blames bad luck for his poor performances, which tells me he’s not likely to turn it around quickly.

I haven’t criticised him unduly, but he needs to be dropped. Of course, if he works hard and makes himself our best option again, or is called into action due to injury, then he’ll have my support again.

Support unwaveringly during games, criticise fairly in between them. Your approach may make sound nice, but it is of little help.


11.) 01 Jan 2018 12:10:58
First off happy New years guys and girls I hope your year is filled with hope joy and love.


I like you 123 you are the ying to my yang.
you always make some sound points from an opposite side the fence.
I think it's safe to say we are all frustrated saints fans right now and have been for a few years with all the coming and goings!

We've seen and have had and still have some world class players on our books but It's unlikely we are going to win anything I'm afraid to say because we've had real chances to win something other then just pride.
Because we've had some exciting players but the club's steadbillly has been far more important then boom and bust that has happen to us other clubs in the past. meaning they chose to sale players for profit few times. Because of this players have lost faith in the clubs direction. They in turn has focus their mind to put themselves first.
This great club has been run well since we saw the back of Rupert Low.

Until we've paid back the other 125 million back to the new controlling we won't compete against the top boy's like it or not that's reality of it.

It's why I feel we should focus on buying Eastleigh Fc and being them up to league one as an academy wing So we can develop 80%
Of our first team from it and we need to be ruthless about it if each player hasn't made half a dozen first team by the time they are 21 thanwe should sod them off. This way we can complete and keep the players as we won't need to balance the books. We then keep a group of players together as they develop together it's likely they would become firm friends giving them a team spirit and unbreakable bond.

Good morning all . so who would you all like to see in out in the transfer window. eds any transfer news at all of solid foundation?
Many thanks as always and merry Christmas to all, be safe.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing new at this time.}


1.) 22 Dec 2017 09:47:54
REckon vvd will go if the right offer comes in nobody could say he has looked good since his return. Could see long and Davis going if the right deal came in wouldn’t mind Mitrovic from Newcastle for the right money and a traore from borough type player for out and out pace. Think midfield should be Lenina/ Romeu and Hjiberg now if all fit.


2.) 22 Dec 2017 12:41:08
Not sure about mitrovic. the type of player I think is exactly what we need but his personality I think is a bit too fiery. not sure wouldn't mind that traore but again reminds me a bit if boufal. needs to try something 100 times for it to come off. I would like to know what's happening to the black box. we are actually spending a lot of money on transfers . lemina looks quality and boufal I hope will come good but where are the unearthed gems we were so good at finding. its like the whole "Southampton way" has totally changed.


3.) 22 Dec 2017 19:21:37
I think we sell VVD to bolster our attack because Mr Goa won't spend any money this season who we buy? God knows? Cause we haven't bought a well known name since Charlie Austin.


4.) 23 Dec 2017 17:42:57
^ Was Mane a well known name? Or Pelle, VVD even Lambert when we got him?

Hal Robson Kanu, Stephen Ireland and Mame Diouf are all pretty well known though. Being ''well known'' isn't the be all and end all.


5.) 23 Dec 2017 20:37:51
Sorry sainty the black box hasn't worked this season or last we are selling ready made player's and replacing with player's with potential to be good player's in 2 or 3 seasons. We will have so much potential with not enough experience to integrate with look how well it did with Arsenal?


6.) 25 Dec 2017 20:22:11
Long seriously needs to go. He has done nothing. Redmond needs to starts scoring, the same as Gabbiadini. Hojberg has been very solid in the last few games he has played and he needs to be a more regular starter. I don't mind if VVD goes as long as he doesn't go to liverpool. Would prefer him to go to either Man City or Barca. In regards to players in we need someone to replace long. Either someone young on loan who still has good quality, such as brahim diaz. A legend to return such as pelle, an older, class striker such as torres, or someone in their mid 20's such as paco alcacer. Then we might start winning. anyway, tis the season to be joyful, so merry christmas and a happy new year.


7.) 26 Dec 2017 21:28:54
ponykeeper83 for god sake we're not Arsenal, get real. It got them 4th for years. I'll take that!


8.) 27 Dec 2017 01:48:34
C'mon 123 I was using arsenal as an example but yeah I would take 4th and champions league football any day.


9.) 28 Dec 2017 01:19:51
But the point is of course we are doing that. If we sell a star to Liverpool, City etc. then we can't go out and get someone in of that quality, because players of that quality want to go to Liverpool, City etc.

So our only option is to look for players with the potential to be that good one day, as we did when we signed all of these top players we're selling. Hopefully, a few come through at the same time, with a similar effect to what we've seen with Spurs over the last few years.

The black box is an effective scouting/ player analysis system. It's not a magical star player vending machine.

As a side point, does Lemina not count as a big name? We got him from Juve for god sake, hardly a diamond in the rough.


 

 

30 Aug 2017 18:19:08
Couple of things away from the constant drone of vvd and alike. congratulations to billy sharp for continuing to perform and score goals, always felt you should of been given a chance in the prem, also jay rod for looking fit, sharp and scoring goals good luck to both . now back to the usual.

shane long rumoured to Celtic that surely can't happen and I would still like a forward to come in.2 nil nils in games that on paper we should be winning feel that a plan b (direct target man) bought on in the last 10 minutes could bag us the points. who would everyone like as their deadline day signing?

rayzer

1.) 30 Aug 2017 18:24:50
Anybody! Bet we sign no one it's the saints way!


2.) 30 Aug 2017 18:52:39
Glaringly obvious that we need a target man.


3.) 30 Aug 2017 18:56:01
I fancy Anthony Knockaert from Brighton, fast and deadly in front of goal. He would probably come here if we paid enough. I rate him and he would work well with Gabby.


4.) 30 Aug 2017 19:51:39
Costa on a three month loan (lol) but more seriously Origi permanently.


5.) 30 Aug 2017 21:22:29
He'd probably have a punch up with Oreol in the warm up.


6.) 30 Aug 2017 21:57:27
A few teams seem to be in need of a target man, I agree origin could be a good option, not necessarily a target man but a decent player who gives 100% every game.


7.) 30 Aug 2017 22:37:50
He's off to Europe according to SSN.


8.) 31 Aug 2017 13:13:18
Sky sports reporting VVD has left the training ground in a blacked out car? Where is he going?


9.) 31 Aug 2017 14:27:06
Home after training?

Might be the best thing to happen. rebuild, bring on the youth and return to the Southampton way . because at the moment we look awful and deserve to go down.

rayzer

1.) 31 Mar 2018 18:31:03
I agree 100% get rid of the players that clearly think they're too good for the squad, Tadic, Redmond, Bertrand etc. The championship could see us bring through the likes of Sims, McQueen and build a fresh squad of youth products that have struggled to come through since MoPo left.


2.) 31 Mar 2018 23:17:16
Either way we need to rebuild, be a bit ruthless about getting rid of dead weight and bring in some new blood. To say that we would be better off doing that in the Championship is absurd though.

2.) 31 Mar 2018 16:40:13
I went to Newcastle and didn’t think we would every play that bad again this season
How wrong I was
You know what pisses me off is all this bull rubbish they pipe on about in the week that they are going to give it all for the team and show some fight
Really well today’s game showed zero fight in it
The players gave the ball away to cheaply and were always second best to every challenge
Our defence
Sorry I’m confusing it with the 4 players who have no communication run round in circles and are good at picking the hall out of our own net
Yes those 4 players
hoof sorry I meant Hoedt is rubbish at best
Stephens struggles goes on little runs and then gets caught out
Bertrand doesn’t give a ****
And Cédric has already lined up another club so there’s no interest to keep this team together
Hughes must be thinking why did I take this on.


 

 

18 Mar 2018 18:25:01
Just to say fair play to the fans that travel, Newcastle last week and Wigan today. Not nice conditions, middle of the month but great support. I don't travel as I can't afford it but not sure I would of last week or today so thanks to those that do. Looked s great atmosphere today and glad you were rewarded with the win.

rayzer

1.) 19 Mar 2018 11:37:52
Firstly, I’d like to echo Rayzer’s praise of the travelling support for our team. Those ardent fans who make long trips in all weather conditions to support the team despite our struggles this season. The noise created yesterday and the singing throughout was wonderful and I’m sure made a difference.

I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that watching the first 45 minutes against Wigan, I was worried about the final result. The wind and playing surface clearly played a part with passes being over and under hit by both teams, but we seemed to be relying a little too heavily on trying to feed Gabbi with balls over the top of Wigan’s back four. Not an easy thing to do when one of their centre backs is 6ft 7. We were effectively gifting the ball back to Wigan who were not only passing more successfully but making runs and playing nice patterns around and through our team.

It was nice to see two play up top together, but then disheartening to see Carrillo have his least effective performance and Gabbi continuing to look as though his confidence is at rock bottom. On the bench, our other striking option is Shane Long so goals may continue to be thin on the ground from our strikers unless Charlie Austin returns fully fit and firing. Wrap him in cotton wool.

MH also opted to play our most gifted technical players as our wide men, hoping they would unlock Wigan. I thought Tadic had little impact in Wigan’s third but he did track back and help out. Boufal on the other hand had little impact at either end of the pitch and as most of Wigan’s attacks were down their right hand side in that first half, poor Ryan Bertrand was left hopelessly exposed, unsure whether to press the ball or follow the overlapping runner. He usually opted for the latter, leaving the Wigan player with ball at feet to make considerable ground and threaten our area. Boufal needs to work much harder to protect Bertrand if he is to continue playing in the first team.

Whilst MH made no substitutions at half time and kept the formation very similar, I did notice a little tweak to our attacking movement. Tadic and Boufal who had been playing high and wide in the first half, tucked in narrow in the second allowing more space out wide for Bertrand and the ever-willing Cedric to overlap. This resulted in more width, and players getting in behind Wigan’s back four for the first time, or isolating their man and beating them before getting a cross in. Just following on from the above Boufal point, Bertrand is the more dangerous crosser of the ball so it is always a shame to see him reluctant to commit to attacks as he is unhappy about the cover provided behind him.

But it was great to see the team come out and play much better in the second half. This did happen under MP2, though usually once we were a goal down and fighting to get something from the game. Our passing was crisper, more urgent and with greater direction. We looked an attacking threat and put Wigan under real pressure. After the first goal, they rolled the dice and after an initial spell of pressure from them, it allowed us better space when we did attack.

When the misplaced back pass rolled to Gabbi’s feet, I’ll be honest in saying I feared a miss was more likely than a goal. He seems to need an age at the moment to get the ball under control and out from under him before shooting. The back pass was not fired in, it trickled to him. Equally with the penalty, though my fingers were crossed, the fact I needed to rely on superstition to will the ball in, is perhaps telling. He struck the ball well and was unlucky to see the keeper guess the right way but once Walton had made the right choice, the ball was at a good height for him and not in the side netting. Misses like this will not do Gabbi’s confidence any good at all. We need him to find his mojo.

I was delighted with the second goal, not simply because it killed the game off but also because Cedric was the scorer. He earned it yesterday as his work rate was excellent, not only getting up and down the right flank from open play but also as he provided a willing outlet when we were defending set pieces. He’s probably the weakest in the air for our team so if you’re not going to stick him on the post, why not use that energy to provide you with the chance of a swift counter. And so it proved. Yes, there was luck when Redmond’s pass was deflected perfectly into Cedric’s path, but that header to flick the ball on for himself was perfect not only in controlling the ball but giving him something to chase and taking the Wigan defender out of the equation. This was then followed by a composed finish past a goalkeeper who must have looked like a literal giant to Cedric. He can be frustrating in relation to the quality of his crossing and his inability to beat his man in attack, plus his lack of height being exposed in defence, but Cedric is always a player you see demanding more of those around him and running himself into the ground for the team. Good on him.

All in all, a good result and a marker was laid in the second half for the team to try to reach for the full 90 minutes against West Ham. Under MP2 there were too many false dawns; the team would play well for a half or even a full 90 minutes and I would think we had turned a corner and would kick on, only to see the team come out in the next game and play as though they had never seen each other or a football before. So West Ham is obviously a huge game because of what is at stake in respect of the points, but also it is huge as it may give an indication as to whether MH is able to help the team find some consistency in their performance levels. We’ll have to wait and see whether the two week gap is a help or hinderance.

Please don't shoot me down as I'm just asking questions. my facts might be wrong so please put me straight. but am I missing something with Silva? I mean he's a talented young coach. relegated in the 5 months he spent with hull then sacked from Watford because he wasn't professional enough after Everton were sniffing around? Doesn't scream life saver and reliable to me.

rayzer

1.) 03 Feb 2018 09:39:59
Totally agree Rayzer.


2.) 03 Feb 2018 09:50:09
I personally wouldn’t want him as a long term appointment because of his clear desire to manage a big club. However, it may be that the Watford sacking has given him a bit of a reality check and a little humility. Who knows? Only MS really.

It’s a little disingenuous to say Hull were relegated under his stewardship. When he took over from Mike Phelan in January, Hull were rock bottom of the league with a record of 3 wins, 4 draws and 13 losses. 13 points in total. Hull also sold two of their best players – Jake Livermore and Robert Snodgrass in January. Silva took over a club that had learned how to lose, was a defensive mess and blunt in attack, sold its best players and he had to manage what was left and a number of loan signings brought in.

Hull won 6 and drew 3 of their remaining games under Silva, notably taking all 3 points against Liverpool. They lost the other 9 games but 21 points from 18 games saw them move up to 18 and miss out on relegation by just 6 points by the end of the season. Their turnaround under Silva was remarkable given the first half of the season and the consensus was that if he had been at the helm all season, then they probably would have stayed in the league.

Prior to this, Silva had managed Estoril (win % of 47 %) winning the league and coach of the year, Sporting (59%) winning the league, and Olympiacos (79%) winning the league.

At Watford (who had finished 17th in the league, one place above Silva’s Hull) he continued to work wonders, seeing his team to a blistering start to the season and sitting in 4th place in the Premier league this season before Koeman was sacked by Everton and they started to show an interest in him. 15 points from those first 8 games and losing only one. As we all know, from that point, things all went a bit pear shaped as Watford lost all semblance of the team they had been. It wasn’t a gradual erosion, it was an overnight thing. Hence the widely held agreement with Watford’s statement after Silva’s sacking that he had lost focus following overtures from Everton. They turned Koeman’s head so we can hardly blame Silva that he saw Everton as an exciting opportunity. But the timing was all wrong for everyone and in the end, it hurt Everton, Watford and Silva.

When focused, he has proved he can manage big teams and little teams to a very high standard. If he could turn Hull’s and Watford’s fortunes around, he could do the same with us. The real question is whether he could commit himself to a club of our size. The realistic answer is no, not for the long term, but he may be willing to take the opportunity to remind everyone what he is capable of after such a poor end to his Watford career.


3.) 03 Feb 2018 11:52:23
Today's game will be crucial but I think if we lose
He's gone
I'd have silva to get us out of this mess eve.


4.) 03 Feb 2018 14:54:43
At least he has fielded an attack minded team, would have preferred Gabi alongside Carillo with kept on bench in a 442 formation. Good luck you reds.


5.) 03 Feb 2018 15:58:43
I think Gabi has a knock.


6.) 03 Feb 2018 17:20:33
Its wonderful to win and to jump back up the table. Things are still ridiculously tight and we a tough game against Liverpool coming up but then a few more winnable games after. We have to take the positives from this good result and build on it.

Also, if the commentary I heard was correct and that our fans booed Long when he came on and cheered sarcastically when he missed a simple header on goal, they need to shut the F up. His confidence is already shot to bits and it doesn’t help if the first thing you hear when you step on to the pitch is your own fans booing you and then jeering every miss. He’s our player coming on the pitch to do his best . Life is so much easier for players if they step out on the pitch and feel the supporters behind them, rather then tension, anxiety and anger directed at them and their teammates. We can’t afford the relationship between players and fans to break down.


7.) 04 Feb 2018 00:17:01
Figo, there were boos from West Brom fans for long, didn’t hear to many from saints fans. If there were then of course I agree, they should shut it.

In big big doodoo. Why is Carillo warming the bench?


2.) 31 Jan 2018 20:39:14
Brighton's away form seems to have got better
When will change occur?


3.) 31 Jan 2018 20:55:57
Finally formation changed to 442 with Guido on up with Shane.


4.) 31 Jan 2018 21:54:05
MP talked up the two games this week as being massive for the club. He even talked about beating Brighton and needing to kick on and keep winning. Then he picks a line-up with Steven Davis in the heart of our midfield, JWP wide right and Shane Long as our lone striker. Where’s the attacking intent in that? Why’s Carrillo on the bench?

Its not surprising we were under the cosh until the penalty. At half time, MP made changes to take the game to Brighton and in the second half, we did just that. But too late as it turned out.

I’ve tried throughout the season to defend MP but even I’ve run out of excuses and patience now. I cannot understand the side he sent out. I wouldn’t consider it our best side, let alone our best attacking side. It wasn’t even our best defensive side. It was just….11 players from the senior squad. This in a game we needed to win. Bizarre.

Marco Silva, if you don’t fancy a long term job with us, how about 13 games?

Figo, thanks for summing up how most (not all) feel. Bang on, he has to go.

It's got boring now but enough is enough
Les and rocket need to relieve him of his duty he's like a wounded animal who's got nothing left
Just kill him off and move on.

Agree, (not about the killing though),
the whole country can see this, so why not the board
Will a replacement occur, I'm not sure it will, the board have publicly stated it
I hope we find a solution soon,

Just a slice will do. better performance shame not to get a point really. Arsenal is still arsenal no matter the 11 starting and no shame in today.

In not sure about le tiss. if he took over or was even involved on the bench or as part of a coaching team if they didn't stay up would it be tainted. thinking back to Alan shearer for newcastle.

Especially seeing leicesters formation of basically 4231.then bringing on more attackers away from home . yes it may of been west brom but I actually believe there is something being bred into them from the hierarchy. Maybe the stress of the ownership and takeover was under no circumstances can you lose or get relegated. week after week we look petrified of scoring, winning and anyone who shows flair and positivity is pegged back. How many times this season has a player come into form, played an awesome game (when considering the shower of s*@t around them) to be benched for the next 3 games. I think the whole club from top to bottom are petrified of being relegated and are panicking not knowing what to do. The worrying thing is the championship is one hell of a league now and if we go down I don't fancy our chances on a quick return.

Think it just shows our confidence once we conceded. Arsenal and today was the same. total control until we conceded then total panic sets in.

Well where do you start with that one. for me football was different then because of him. He changed everything . as a young boy/ teenager I spent my saturday afternoons waiting, watching ceefax scores teletext for his name and to hear about what wonderful piece of magic he had pulled off. I then spent my playing time trying (poorly ) to emulate him in every way. It was criminal that he did not play for england more often and I also think he received unfair criticism of his work ethic . he actually worked hard and it showed . for me he made my Saturdays. and my childhood.

I actually honestly think its fear of losing and relegation that has caused this. I mentioned in another post that puel fielded a 4231 formation with 4 very attacking players away from home, then went on to make 2 attacking substitutes. granted it was against west brom but I reckon this has been bubbling away for 18 months - a couple of years. Maybe something with the takeover or something else behind the scenes but even listening to fonte, van dijk since they've left . making comments on people not knowing what was going on. I do think the club is in panic mode not knowing what to do, afraid to lose and afraid to play. how many times this season has a player played a blinder, looked like a match winner only to be benched for the next few games.
