It'll define us now. We can win this still. But if we don't, I've no idea what happens next or what is best for the club.

We could get battered here! Seems like yet another season in the wilderness for us...can't win a title with this many average players in the team!!

...Maureen gone by Christmas hopefully.

He's been excellent in the past, but Valencia has been **** so far tonight.

Jones needs shipping to the glue factory.

We need better strikers, better midfielder, better defence, better manager & better board.

Better defenders, definitely, but that's what the manager was saying all summer...

We haven't had a decent striker for years. Rarely score in open play, especially against good teams.

At least he made Real Madrid, & kept them in the Champions League for another round, unlike Ronaldo.

Seriously, who since? Didn't he leave after RVP?

Ed was right not to sign Alderweireld, he's rubbish...

He bought Lindelhof, I don't blame the board for having little confidence in his transfer targets!
...depressing start to the season!

A defence that's always going to ship goals, a midfield that creates nothing and no one up front who can score a goal.

Dreadful.
Where have I heard that before?

Someone scouted him, and he looked OK for Sweden at the WC. He's been toilet for us though.

You.

You quote it every week.

It was the second best defence last season and Lukaku scored quite a few.

Midfield isn't creative enough though, that's spot on.

Are you for real? You are the only fan on the planet who thinks it's all OK.

Our season is over.

It's crap and I'd agree with MICON.

We haven't got a single player who looks like they can turn this around, longer term. Seriously, who would you keep and build a team around?

No, I'm objecting to you rewriting the past to attempt to portray yourself as some sage.

This is extremely poor. Everything is not okay. Our season is not over yet, but it will be quickly if things don't change.

Things did change tonight. We were the best side in the first half, ****** it up in the second.
