Shocking performance last night and in all probability,given our well publicised lack of depth to squad,more of the same coming our way.
2-0 United home win.

Currently we look like the Roy teams of old with little in the way of inspiration or attacking threat. Without Olise there's too much reliance on Eze to do something as (according to some former players) Roy doesn't really work on the attacking side of the game in training instead working on shape and the defence. This is the fundamental flaw with Roy. He knows how to organise and build a solid base but he needs a few flair players to take care of the attacking side of the game. Once we have Olise and Franca available we may see more performances like the end of last season but until then I think we're in for more afternoons wondering if football is a spectator sport or an endurance test.

2-0 United.

2-0 United.

But listen to some of Roys interviews and you will hear that he works more on attacking than shape and defence. He always says shape and defending is easy and more times needs to be spent on the attacking patterns of play.

It is absurd to blame Roy for our squad limitations.

We did not buy a striker in the summer once again, and we also signed a player who has a long term injury.
If Edouard is injured, that leaves us with few options up front.

It's hard to see us getting anything other than nil on Saturday, but I'm sure we will play better than we did on Tuesday.

A draw would be a great result.

Andros was commentating on a game at the end of last season where he said that they didn't work on attacking play. Crouch said it was the same with Pulis at Stoke. Maybe it's an old school thing? I'm not having a go at Roy btw, as the club know how he sets up, how he works in training, etc, so they let him down with their transfer activity. The fact is though Roy does not take risks and if he believes we are the underdogs he nearly always reverts to type which is to hang in for as long as possible in the hope we'll get something on the break. It can be effective but it's boring as hell. As it is with our current injuries I think even Jesus himself would struggle to perform any miracles.

To be honest, we couldn't do much worse if LAZARUS made a comeback for us, aged 84.

The whole attitude will be different Saturday, apart from a stronger team players will be a bit more up for it. Whatever they might say, those players were not playing at 100% last night, they might have been running around looking busy, but a lot of it is mental attitude as well.
Well put in a much better performance Saturday as wed all expect, I fancy a 1-1 draw with a lot more attacking intent

A fun backs to the wall defending no chances created 2-0 defeat. Might as well rest half the first team again and save them for the Forest game? Im sure Roy would love to if he could.

I'm inclined to agree.

A frontline with options of Olise/Franca/Mateta/Edouard/Ayew may yield something with Eze behind them but as of now more than half that cohort is injured.

Any team we field will look more like a loose attempt at getting something as opposed to a line up we have any faith in getting a result with.

The 0-0 seems like the best possible thing to wish for, let alone achieve.

 


Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

Was that on purpose?

Indeed. Jesus brought Lazarus back to life, so my thought was maybe we could resurrect the career of Mark Lazarus.
