Cesc has seemed like pure AIDS every game this season to me. Thoughts

Re: English Football 2015-16

Chelsea looked like old men playing out there often today or maybe just disinterested. Costa had like one decent run.

Re: English Football 2015-16

As I posted about 2 weeks ago, the crucial game was not the Arsenal one but the West Ham game and it has been a disaster. I repeat the concept. Its not what we do against United but what we do in the next 2 home games that really matters.

These particular set of tactics dont seem to work against teams that park the bus. We had no creativity at all. We have no balance at the moment, the second we go to attack teams we are left too exposed at the back. And if we defend properly we create **** all.

If Sturridge is back for the Norwich game then that could give us a different look but then the problem will be that we basically depend on his fitness.

Beat Norwich, beat Aston Villa. If we cant do that then we might as well focus on winning the Europa League because we have no chance at a top 4 finish.

Still early days to judge our chances probably. What we have shown so far is not good enough, by the time we finish playing Everton we will have a clear picture of where we are imo.

Anyway, could be worse, we could be Chelsea.

Re: English Football 2015-16

All of the optimism I had for this year after the Arsenal game is gone. We were so bad and Rodgers selection was really bad. His changes were mind boggling as well. We're two down at half, playing a team that sits in and defends and is playing with 1 striker, so we add another defender and go 3 at the back. We then lose our most creative player, go down to 10 men, and he subs off an attacking midfielder for another attacking midfielder. We had 5 defenders and a DM on the field, down 2 with 10 men, with 30 minutes to go in the game. He didn't even give us a chance to win.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Pardew now the first manager to beat Mourinho 3 times in the Prem.

Baids once ranked him as worst manager in the Prem and laughed at me when I questioned it.

Only time Baids has ever been wrong mind

Re: English Football 2015-16

Firstly, Dejan Lovren is probably going to be Hammer of the Year.

Thanks to Kevin Friend, that was a genuinely abysmal refereeing display. Thanks also to Brendan Rodgers for making this happen. You're special, just not in the way you think.

I caught some of the game on the radio, Obiang and Ogbonna sounded solid. That was a **** side we had out as well.

Re: English Football 2015-16

From what Ive seen so far, Im actually optimistic for the United/Everton/Spurs/Chelsea games. If we get 4 points from those its preety decent. And I fancy us to do so.

The problem is the Norwich/ Aston Villa/ Southampton / Crystal Palace lot at home. We should be looking at 3 wins there and nothing suggests we will do so.

Expert betting tips: Bet Liverpool against United, then Norwich against Liverpool

All his directness and fu Im scoring has completely dried up. Looks like he can only score if given years of time and space and cant create any of his own.
He's certainly spent more time glaring at the referee and slapping the turf than doing anything in front of goal. Frustrating to say the least.

Mourinho: "Thoughts? The first thought is for Palace. They come with everything. Team ready, players ready, fans ready, fantastic spirit."

Mourinho: "They [Palace] were lucky, but they deserved a lot. I think we deserved more, but not deserved to win."

Mourinho: "Finally, the referee, with a big mistake, clear penalty with the result at 0-0."
