But seriously Shukes this is shit were going backwards again some poor performances by a few players no one is taking control and throwing some fucks around.

I agree. We play some good football in triangles, but then give away the simplest of balls, or run out of ideas in the last third.

I really think we need DCL on. Someone who can hold the ball a bit better, but can also run at players. Richarlison is a bit of a one trick guy at the moment, gets the ball and runs into players.

Richarlison is basically doing what Haf accuses Rom did, only without the goals 

I agree and the same comments about quality of service also apply. 

For a talented bunch of players they are panicking every time they get the ball (bar Lookman) and we have no control at all. Its maddening.

Exactly. All of which is meaning the back 6 are under constant pressure. 

Gylfi for DCL, Bernard in the middle (unless he needs to come off because of that tackle)

I was thinking DCL on for Gomes and Gylfi drop deep as Gomes doesnt seem to be at it today

Problem is we don’t have a player that can do a job to take Gomes out of the firing line for a bit. We need him on the pitch and have to hope his form comes back. 

Having a terrible game again. Can’t work out what’s wrong with him recently, or did he just have a few matches at the start out of his skin and this is the real Gomes?

I believe it is the latter. He had a few good games early but this is the real Gomes. For all his technical flair, he's slow and sloppy on the ball and inaccurate with his passes. 

This is the first match where I've really questioned Marco's plan. Starting the same side that looked so extremely average against Bournemouth has led to predictable results. I don't know what the fix is but what I do know is that the current set up is not working.

He's not a CF but Silva keeps trying to shoe horn him into that position when we have 2 CF who could do a better job, be careful Silva or your be going the same way as Koeman and fat Sam.

Either to be honest. We just need someone up top

We played a very good second half against Bournemouth with the exception of a few defensive mistakes.

Everybody complains so much about Silva changing the side, then we get a win and he names an unchanged starting XI and everyone says he’s getting his tactics wrong ffs. The players just aren’t playing well. Gana, Lookman and Bernard the only players who look like they care today.

Edit: Should add Pickford and Digne to that list.

Has Gylfi been any better? 

No, Gylfi has been terrible as well. But so have 90% of the team so far. Only a few players performing.

Lookman the only player that looks capable of creating anything.

I'm sorry to say that there's quite a lot more to it, Matt.

An actual front man would buy time in the centre of the park and allow our star winger to play on the wing. It’s quite simple for me; we’re limiting ourselves to 2/3rds of the pitch

Not going to disagree with you there, but we clearly have issues both in the mid and back too.

I'd have neither of them as a striker. 

Oh I know, it’s just your criticism would be a lot more accurate at the moment 😛

Why are we playing balls in the air up to Richarlison? He has 0 chance of winning them

Before we ask that which is true by the way shouldn't we be asking why are we playing him up front.

Of all the one posts I've made today you mean?

My criticism of richarlison has been As cutting as it's needed to be.  He's not a striker. He's got a poor attitude. He's got talent.

But they can hold the ball up and bring others into the game

Others who are also not going to score goals.

They all have their strengths and weaknesses and I'd imagine Silva wants richy upfront because he's more capable of scoring goals than the others.

I'm not defending him we desperately need a CF
