Chelsea have done nothing in this match yet are beating us comfortably. Can't even put my finger on what's wrong with us.
I just think the quality isn’t quite there in a few positions. Over the course of a season that gets found out.

While fingers can certainly be pointed at Ange -- lack of attention to detail, set pieces, tactical flexibility, etc., we perpetually have the 5th best squad in England, and that's likely where we'll finish again. Jspurs is correct that we have a quality gap with a few teams. But come on, hire a damn set piece coach already. We are atrocious.

Think Ange ball has been found out to be honest. Sit back, wait for us to fuck up our attack. Break on us and score. Get a free kick or corner and score. Job done.

Players look done. Either burnt out or can't be arsed.

Seasons fizzling out rapidly.

I'm not Ange out at all but in the premier league you are playing seriously good players every week. We can't just keep running up the pitch relying on 2 centre backs dealing with 20 breaks a game.

The thing that won us games in the first half of the season is non-existent now, and that was Richarlison on the left and Maddison behind Son with Kulusevski on the right.

Kulusevski behind Richarlison with Johnson on the right has never been proven to score us goals.

Yes Son and Maddison are out of form but so is the rest of the team.

My kids and I were watching the game, and one of them made a good point—we are very reminiscent of the first year under Poch. No plan B was the big accusation at that point too. It’s a process with any manager, and a big part of it is getting the right players in. I guess I’m saying it feels like we’re in the Nabil Bentaleb/Benjamin Stambouli phase of this project.

Ange taking responsibility in his post match interview. The next game is Liverpool away. I back him for next season but if he loses 4 or 5 in a row it is a problem for the ownership.

Knowing us we won't win until it hands Arsenal the league.

It feels as though since we had that massive run of injury issues our players are there in name only. I’m not ruling out the notion that we are playing every week with guys who are underdone. And that has a knock on effect on the guys who are fit.

Pre-season cannot come quickly enough.

By the same token, it is Poch's first year at 'Ski. Granted, one difference is, he's got 189 players to choose from.

Yeah that was actually what prompted the comment. I actually think he’s starting to get them turned around, sadly.

The only chance we have is if an entire squad gets injured laughing so hard when one naive young player asks 'Gaffer, what do we do if Spurs use a different system against us and we can't use the tactics we have practised against them?'.

Every match is like watching a replay of the previous one, Plan A worked at the beginning of the season, it took 9 or 10 games for the rest of the PL teams to work out how to play against Plan A, hopefully Plan B, C and D will be coming next season. I'm happy for Posty to have another season, hopefully he has worked out who he needs and who he doesn't. If Levy backs him then maybe we'll have a chance, if not then we are like always, fucked.

Tough decisions need to be made, Sonny is done, Richarlison is a Brazilian - so was Paulino, Emerson is OK 1 game in 10, Johnson runs a lot, Kulu is really disappointing, Romero is a good defender, but ....Vicario needs to toughen the fuck up and stop getting umpty, Posty needs a plan B!

Pochettino's first season with us - 6th. Second was 5th.

Third season we had a legitimate title challenge but finished third. Fourth season the same and we finished second and I seem to remember he rarely had a "Plan B" either.

Chelsea or not, he'll still be regarded as one of our best managers of the modern era because we gave him time.

Demanding Ange's head less than 10 months in having sold our greatest ever player and having one of the worst injury runs I can remember is absurd, yet we continue to have some of the most impatient fans of any football club.

We have to eventually get behind someone and give them a proper chance to rebuild otherwise we'll keep having these issues every year or so as each new manager tries to get the players they want and tries to get the squad playing the way they want.

My only worry with Ange is that if we have a poor start to next season and the fans really turn is that the Dark Lord will shit his pants and sack him anyway.

You can't leave it at that!!! Well ??? Did you win ?
Did I fuck...

And also it's a totally unsociable game... It's not like you can chat and have a laugh while playing because you'll miss something or the twat with the microphone will get aggy because you're making noise... Fuck that guy.

Fuck bingo... Fuck the Chavs... Fuck Big shorts, Werner, Johnson and every other cunt...!!!

This is a worrying trend now.
