Thanks monkey, after half time I couldn't watch. Came and had a lie down in a darkened room. Your up dates as my only contact with the real world!
Now only two wins away from Manure
Rice looked class, but the defence looked dodgy still. The front three look good and are playing offeach other now.
Tighten the back, get some invention in midfield and we can climb the table.
totally agree with you on all counts...
I know people are gonna hate me for picking on him... but we need a midfield boss and Nobes just isn't it. He's a good utility player... but we need a boss. Maybe Rice will grow into that role... but we certainly miss the big boss in the middle.
The defense is weird... they make some outstanding individual stops... but then can turn around as a group and leave us wide open...
Up top we're looking good, so long as Arnie stays fit.
It was a little depressing to see how much Yarmolenko faded... but maybe he just needs to play more.
Don't really want to get into nitpicking because overall we did well and got the result that we so desperately needed.
Next two games will - as always - be key... but it's West Ham, we are just as likely to play well against the top teams as get turned over by the bottom ones...
But a few more three pointers and we'll all be forgetting the horrendous start.
