Nuno's football fucking stinks. It stank at Wolves and it is stinking the place out here. Crystal fucking Palace rejected him after interviewing him, this is where we are at. We have become a joke of a club.
Tactics were atrocious mid game today.
But some players give me zero hope that good tactics will change anything

They make any game plan look bad

we don't go to training so don't know what goes on, has the manager tried to make training intresting ?
does he put on lots of different sessions ?
or is training boring for the players ?
if this guy thought/thinks Scarlett can play upfront for us (maybe in a few years but not now) its no wonder players don't have him
200000 reasons a week that training is interesting.

its not about commitment from the players, remember its just a job for them they can get the same type of money from other clubs so don't need to be here, they are also millionaires so don't have any money worries unlike us
the manager and his coaching team need to make it fun to go into training (not just the same old stuff) thats why you should have big coaching team with specialist skills, don't want them bored with training
Wtf?

That’s why they get loaned out and do their time in the Champo and so on - to realise that if they don’t care, others will, and sometimes hard work beats the good fortune to end up at a big club. Entitled twats - highlight of the week for me was Dele’s post about new content playing FIFA with the pro FIFA players.

WTAF?

Look at the team we started tonight. Two new players at RB, CB, Ben Davies who’s played like 2 Premier League games in the last 12 months, Skipp who played for a side that destroyed Championship and now are getting destroyed in Premier League every week, Lo Celso/Ndombele who still don’t know what their job is after two years and a completely uninterested Kane. You’ve got half of that first 11 not fitting together. In this case, bad tactics is obviously going to make them look worse than they are.

Or, a load of players who have either passed their sell by date or don’t give a shit making simple things like passing the ball look difficult

I have no idea why Son was out on the right wing, or Bergwijn was on the pitch, but they still played poorly

He deserves to be here for zero minutes as far as I’m concerned. Never wanted him and he’s done nothing to change my mind.

Giving a manager time for time's sake is stupid. He’s a terrible fit, at odds with the culture of the club, he’s a glorified caretaker on a 2 year deal.

There’s nothing in his history that suggests the quality of football will one day get remarkably better.
Whilst I still don't agree that it's his fault, or that I want to go back to manager selection mode, THAT WAS DREADFUL

KANE MUST GO !
No-one is bigger than my club.
Hope he gets left out of the next England squad.
Citeh are welcome, just give us the 120mill and he's yours, what a scumbag !

remember if he sells HG players he needs to replace with HG players or run the squad light of players
If we were back in the 60s with Billy Nick, we would have signed these

MAGUIRE
SHAW
GREALISH
PHILLIPS
RICE
INGS
TONEY

And they would have begged to play for us.

Ardiles, Peters, Klinsman, QUALITY

We obviously need to give control to someone with the bottle to tear these Muppets apart and start again. DEMOLISH AND BUILD. I am sick of pampering over the cracks. Get someone with some balls to sell Kane and then build a team that wins the League and sees him get a runners up medal AGAIN !

My once great, double winning club is now buying kids who might improve.

I am currently clearing out the rubbish in my garage and as I throw stuff into the skip, I am shouting Davies, Dier, Sanchez, Royal, Winks, Alli, Bergy and now KANE.

NEW MAN REQUIRED WHO WILL CLEAR OUT THE DROSS!

That's because we refused SO MANY decent players from the championship.
David Pleat and other scouts must be so frustrated. They go around the matches and we have missed out on Maddison, Watkins, Toney etc
WHY - Either we are so arrogant that we think that they were not up to our standard OR we now have an Italian who has no knowledge of the lower leagues.
This together with a feeling that our youth products are not up to the level.

SO we buy

Njie, Nkoudo, Soldado, Royal, Reggie, Sanchez, Bergy.
None of them setting the team alight !

NO wonder we get excited about Skippy. He's almost the first breakthrough since STEVE PERRYMAN who a lot of you will never have seen play.

I know I have been ranting this weekend but I AM ANGRY At my team.

Also every report I read says Patrichi us looking at someone in the French/Spanish/Italy leagues. The problem with this is that we are stuck with qualified players. In short we are stuffed because we cannot sell Dele, Winks, Kane easily not because they are playing crap but because we have to have English players on the books. It isnt getting any better !

Who was the last qualified players that we bought ?

Rodon can't qualify ! Probably the reason no-one gives him a chance ?
Dier?
Dele ?

Gets harder to fathom ?

I know Pleat personally pleaded with Hitchin, Levi and whoever to sign Toney from Peterborough having written a dossier for MONTHS.!

We won't or can't sign players from Chelski or Woolwich so have to look at Norwich to train our youth. Whilst we were logging Skipps performance did we notice Aaron's instead of Royal ? Or a look at Cantwell as a prospect ?
We neither buy the finished article nor want to train/teach younsters !

THIS HAS TO CHANGE !

Our scouting system is not turning up English or foreign players that have been an early influence on the team. Whilst we all get excited when we supposedly get interested in someone but WE MUST NOW BUY PROVEN QUALITY and sell,sell,sell the cancers that are Winks, Dele Kane and anybody else that think they deserve an automatic place in our team whilst slagging us off to anyone that will listen ! NO-ONE IS BIGGER THAN THE TEAM !
 
Chatting to a few Brighton fans on Saturday night on their way back from Liverpool and mentioned Spurs could be looking around for a new manager again soon do you think Potter would leave Brighton mid contract ? and almost in complete synchronisation they burst out laughing! I thought cheeky buggers but actually thinking on it a bit more I can't really blame them .
 
According to Talk Radio the game on Saturday is being titled the "El Sacko! "

The question is :- If either team loses will they really sack their man ?

Is this just media talk ?

For our position there is only the same choices who either refused to come or who absolutely did not want to come. People are calling for Howe or Parker, but these were available and rejected.

So even if lose to a depressed, uncoordinated United, ate we REALLY going to sack a man who has had no time to sort out our mess. Maybe we need to appreciate that this is not the team of Walker, Toby, Jan , Rose.

We now are rebuilding and it is going to be messy !

To his credit Nuno seems to trying to force Levi to sell Dele And Winks, having cut out Aurier and Sissoko.

The next stage must be to get another decent C.F. and a box-to-box midfielder with a cutting pass.

All in all "how long does a new manager get to sort out a club ? "
Turns out the media were right for once
