  1. Sorry CH I love you to pieces but “It was important we didnt lose today” speaks volumes.

    Guthrie doesnt belong out wide right, so dont expect miracles when its clearly not happened before !

    Lovenkrands is an impact player (at best) at this level so dont expect him to perform in the same way he did last season.

    We cannot break down massed defences at home with the usual long ball to AC routine all the time.

    Look at your squad and then look at how you’ve deployed them. Tiote will miss the next game and Barton the next two so its a no brainer – you have to disrupt the side and bring in players who can make a difference.

    Try moving Jonas to his proper right sided position for a start. Give Guthrie the opportunity to play centrally and see the difference in his game. If you must have a DM in place at every home game try taking out one of the back four instead of another MF.

    We must not match up against sides who only play with one man up front with a complete back four, where’s the point ? Yes these sides have mobile, support players but we can track them if needed. We need to counteract the 4-5-1’s of this world and we need to use players who are fit for purpose.

    IMO we waste a player like Guthrie out wide and Jonas, to a certain extent, on the left. Put them in place and play the formation that suits our game with the players available.

  2. Token gesture putting that Plank henderson in. Had a shocker at the sports direct and didn’t even look good enough to play for Scotland

    For all of what you have said the fact remains that the team actually played well today. It was just a case of not being able to take the few chances we created. Fulham came with a draw in mind (As they do in all of their away games) and they got it. Check their recent away performances and see how teams really struggle to create clear cut chances against them. Disgracefully negative tactics in my opinion, but there you go. That is Mark Hughes for you and exactly why he got the sack at City. Small time manager with small time ambitions.

  4. The limitations in our squad are there for all to see. Routledge is a Championship player, Ameobi is always going to be injured and if anything happens to Carrol we’ll be relegated.

    I just want to stay up this season, but fck me, can we really stay up with a home record like we have?

  5. You’re starting to annoy me, stuart. I know we’ve had some bad home games, but the game today was not one of them in my opinion.

    And so what if routledge is a championship player? We were a championship team when we bought him, and he contributed brilliantly last season. It’s quite obvious that we can’t afford to buy top class players in every postion, and i think we’ve done great so far with the resources we have atm.

    I know Carroll has been great so far, but you never know. Nile Ranger might really step his game up a notch if something happened to Carroll, and we still have Ameobi, who’s ofc not going to be injured for the whole season.

  6. So what if Routledge is a Championship player? Are you for fckin real? We’re a PL team now, we cannot afford to carry Fizzy pop players.

    Did you go to the game today, or are you are you talking shite after listening to the radio?

    I was there, like I have been for all the home games this season and Villa and Mackems apart we’ve been pityfull!

    We cannot keep going like this at home, if you disagree you’re quite obviously bizarre.

  7. Stuart, you are one of the most bizarre bloggers on here.

    I didn’t get to see the game so I can’t comment on how we went but while driving down the coast (instead of watching the game) I was thinking that we’ve picked up 2 away wins we didn’t expect, so in some way that offsets the games against Blackpool and one of Stoke/Blackburn/Wigan/Fulham that we would have hoped to have won. Given that we’d have expected one or two bad results at home anyway, I’d say we are about on target to do better than survive this year.

    And that’s to be cheered, and it’s something we should all keep in mind when we make comments.

  8. We seem to have trouble with hard working teams who play with men behind the ball, every time we are put under pressure our attacking play suffers… I dont agree at all that we played “great” we tried our best but in the end we only had 2-3 good chances. That said our defense is better than it have been since Sir Bobby and that a good platform to build on.

    In the end tho, we arent doing badly at all as a whole and we will finish in a mid table position this season i reckon… There is certainly allot of good players to build a very good side around, especially when Ben Arfa returns to join the likes of Barton, Tiote, Caroll and our entire back 5.

  9. Just want to say it’s no surprise that the wheels have begun to fall off at our fellow newly promoted side from the West Midlands. I said they would struggle as soon as the news about Olssen being out until mid-December broke out. He is a brick wall for them and he leads by example.

  10. England squad: Ben Foster, Robert Green, Joe Hart; Ashley Cole, Rio Ferdinand, Kieran Gibbs, Phil Jagielka, Joleon Lescott, Micah Richards, Chris Smalling, John Terry; Gareth Barry, Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, Adam Johnson, James Milner, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Ashley Young; Gabriel Agbonlahor, Jay Bothroyd, Andrew Carroll, Peter Crouch.

    Nothing much surprising,but i guess is because of striker department crisis,capello included Jay Bothroyd from the Championship.

  11. Closer to the champions league places than relegation after 13 games, I don’t believe anyone who says they wouldn’t have been happy with that before the season started :-)

  12. Would you rather have out form with our cheap team or be man city? I know what I would be more annoyed with.
    Ignore stu he thinks we have a god given right to beat what he perceives as lesser teams. Arrogance personified.
    Personally I think we are doing really well. If we finish top half that will be a good season for us. One place above relegation will do me just fine.

  13. Micky…yep try and get to 40 points first and foremost if and when we get anything more than that it’s a bonus.
