I’ve been criticizing JM’s ‘park the bus’ mentality recently, and going against the ‘Harry Hotspur Vibe’ of ‘JM is the bees knees’… but… (putting helmet on and readying for the abuse)… I thought this was a good performance bar conceding 3 soft goals. It was entertaining football, we should have won (except for those minutes of madness near the end of the first half). Those moments where players ‘switch off’ aren’t Jose’s fault per se. I don’t know why the players (even the Vikings) seem to have these switch off moments and maybe JM could stick a cattle prod up the a%se of anyone that does that in training… but otherwise this was a good performance against a good team

If the cupboard remains empty of medals and silverware I fear the best players will leave to clubs that guarantee success on a regular basis. Who wouldn’t?

What has he improved in this lot? Everyone knows my feelings about the biggest problem but I want someone to tell me one thing jose has improved. Results still poor. Style, drastically worse, team spirit seems poor. 15m a year and there has not been a jot of improvement

All you can ask of any manager/coach is that they get their squad playing at a level that’s greater than the sum of its parts. I believe that’s what the last guy did during his first 4 years. So far, Maureen has managed that for about 2 months with a squad, I’d argue, is somewhat better than the one he inherited.

In that respect, I think he’s currently failing. Let’s hope he and the squad improve during the rest of this season and the next window.

Won’t happen for the simple reason that if kane and son have any brain at all they will leave. This is NOT a football club, the fact our beloved leader thinks he can just go and grab the biggest name in management and everything will be ok proves it. The club is a shambles from top to bottom and before people start with their rubbish about go follow arsenal, if you back this then you are part of the problem, because the longer this fraud gets away with it the longer it will stay the same. To quote the old saying on here jam tomorrow

Tottenham had more possession, more shots. More passes with a better pass accuracy and 13 more corners than them. Means nothing when you lose though

Trouble wiv stats though Taps is that the passing accuracy figure includes all those tippy tappy passes across the back line and to the goalkeeper which we did for much of the time we had possession.

H, your defence of José ,I’m afraid is falling on deaf ears. I have tried, honestly I’ve tried. It was an entertaining match if you’re a neutral, but this week-on-week nonsence is turgid. How many weeks, how many matches must we go on and on and on….. This is the defensive guru, the master of not letting goals in. He’s failing. A season and a half, and we concede and concede and we lose and we lose. If we were just losing to the top 3/4/5/6 I can take that, but we’re not. We’re losing all over the place, and it’s utterly predictable. I want this manager out of my club as soon as possible. If you can give me a reason to change my mind I’d like to hear it please.

What are we right now? We aren’t the pragmatic yet efficient Jose winning machine we were supposed to be morphing into after beating Utd and City. Where’s that?

We aren’t losing 2-1 from not attacking enough, we are now scoring and letting goals in like nobody’s business. We have no identity, perhaps trapped between two identities? Who knows, all I know is that right now we look rudderless…

We’ve got Kane, Son, Reguilón, Lloris, Hojbjerg, Lo Celso & N’dombele; and you think this is the worst in, how long? That’s more than half a team of players who wouldn’t look out of place in any top 4 side in Europe. Did you see our players during Levy’s first 10 years? Or see us during the 90s?

I’m not convinced our players are quite as bad as our recent performances.

Even in the 90s we had great players. And in Levys first ten years. Lineker.Gazza.Sheringham i adored in the 90s… Kane is unreal and we have a handful of good players… But 5 or 6 good players out of a full squad is poor. The other 20 odd are not good enough.. Lo celso returns are poor he’s injured more than pammy. Too many poor players let us down, davies winks dele were all rubbish and put pressure on us.

I’m not blaming Jose, but there’s more to management than trying different players here and there.

Rightly so, Jose was lauded for the typically effective tactics he employed that saw us top of the league. I’m not a fan of the spectacle but it was working, 1-6 at Utd 2-0 at home to City.

If we’ve done it before, why can’t we do it now? I’m not disputing the fact that we need some players at the back but you can’t just blame the players for not doing what they were doing a few months ago. It’s a collective responsibility shared by all involved and involves work done in preparation for games and training…

When he arrived he stated clearly that he believed our squad to be quality. He has since added players. We currently look little better than when he arrived halfway through last season, and we’re certainly worse than we were during this season’s first couple of months. Some have said it’s entirely the fault of the players; if that’s true, Jose can’t be confused, just misguided.

Winks comes on awful first touch leads to Everton goal, then goes and get booked, attempted one cross which went high and wide out for a goal kick, tried three passes forward all went right to an Everton player, attempted one shot that almost hit the corner flag. Has to be the worst sub ever made…..

Probably the worst possible conclusion – pushed to ET, had to bring on Kane relatively early on and still lost.

Winks’s cameo was absolutely tragic, and even some of our more solid players had a stinker tonight.

But hey, this is the more entertaining stuff so many fans seem to wish for? “At least we played well”

Well I’ll take a 2-0 VS WBA over this anytime, thank you very much. Hope people will remember this.
