    and thats why mourino the best manager in the league. he wont wait 60 mins to make a sub if hes teams playing bad. its like some stupid football rule that you have to make subs around 60 mins.

    It's the same old same old. All the possesion and no end product.

    There are no surprises with this team you know exactly how they are going to play. If we do then the opposition certainly do.

    No ideas, no plan and beaten by a team that hasn't won for 8 games and likely to be in a relegation fight as we may be unless we get it together.

    But we do have some average and overated players and of course no strikers. If WBA can beat us at home and the hammers can beat Liverpool 3-1, who we lost to 3-0 at home then we could be in for a long worried season.

    I know a lot will say it's early days but the signs are there I'm afraid.

    Early days Mikey. Oh to be a United supporter, how I wish we had LVG at Spurs along with Rooney and Van Persie. I do hope and pray we are not going to start getting on the managers back so early in the season. Poch will turn our season round I am sure, and I believe it will start with a victory over Forest followed by a win over the gooners. Re WBA, I think there will be quite a few of these kind of results in the Premiership this season, we have had our's, United, Everton and Liverpool have had there's over the weekend, they will turn there season round and so will we, I certainly believe we will never play as badly as this again this season.

    the manager should be given 2 seasons at least to get things right.
    we cannot keep sacking managers. look at avb hes in the champions league and hes team won 2 0 away to benfica last week and hes players are now coming good.

    the only thing that worrys me is kaboul captain now makes him undropable

    I don't think Kaboul is undropable just because he is captain, he still has to perform and isn't. Problem with the defence is that Poch keeps changing it and needs to stick with (and decide) which two are best centrally. I can't understand why Verts was on the bench, if he wasn't fit, he shouldn't have been there and if he was he should be automatic choice. Dier is doing ok but isn't really a right back but a cover central defender and Rose just simply can't defend.
    Midfield problems persist, Eriksen doesn't look the same player, Lamela love his little flicks and skill and works hard but still has to prove himself. Dembele just slows the game down as does Paulinho but he does get into the danger area more. Capoue is too slow and Chadli is no winger.
    However I do think it will all come right with more playing time. We have results like this every season usually not so early so now we have got this one over we need to push on starting this week cos if we play like that again, Woolwich will slaughter us.

    Poch has to stay and I don't think even Levy will fire another manager so quickly. It's not the manager that's the problem it's the players. We bought a bunch of average players who with the exception of Lloris none would not get into city or chelsea and even the arse teams.

    You talk about our season kick starting with Forest Seebee but I don't think the players are good enough to win many matches this season.
    We sell players we should keep like Caulker, Holtby and even Dawson and keep others that we could get good money for and who arn't good enough to play regularly like Townsend.

    They say that Poch pushed for a striker but Baldini balls it up AGAIN!

    When you think that Welbeck was just 16mil and Remy 10 it's a no brainer isn't it? Those two up front might....I say might....have brought out the best in the MF if they have any.

    It would be madness to sack the manager at any time this season. He has to stay with him and see if he can get the best out of a very average lot.

    So far I haven't heard anyone calling for the manager to be sacked, most agreeing that it is the players. However in most cases I wouldn't agree that they aren't good enough, yes Rose and Townsend, but not many others. How often in the recent past would many of our players have got into the top four sides mainly due to money that they have and we don't.
    I agree we need a striker but the two you mention Mikey, Welbeck (who isn't a 20 goal a season man anyway) didn't want to come to Spurs, obviously swayed by the Englan training session at London Colney and Arsenal players getting to him and is Remy really that good.

    I went sunday the atmosphere was awful to be honest, this Europa league is slowly killing us. we need Saturday football and a permanent team unless injury dictates otherwise. the chopping and changing does us no favours its like a team of strangers not knowing where anyone will be. kaboul is no captain , I never heard him shout anything all match or galvanise the players when we went 1 down. no creativity in midfield. rose , lamella and lloris only players can hold their heads high after that display. if we don't finish top four this season pray we don't get in Europa again either , its like a slow death.

    I believe the only way this side can improve is by playing the same 11 each match including cup and europa matches. If there are injuries so be it you then bring in others from the squad. That way they get used to each other and play as a unit. A side that plays as a team can cover up it's short comings and at the moment we have quite a few.

    This constantly changing 8 or 9 players each week is complete madness and leaving us in chaos.
