This too. We need a change of manager & vision. <ok>
And it's not that I even think Bruce is really worse than any of the past cast of characters. Just that he's illustrative that we haven't had a manager that has injected confidence into the side in ages. That it always seems like the players are drilled that they aren't good enough to take the game to anyone, and instead have to soak up pressure and hope to capitalize on mistakes and counter attacks.
Makes you miss John Carver. If he believed in the players half as much as he believed in himself they would have been unstoppable.

Not entirely sure what ASMs role in the team is based on the last 2 or 3 games. He’s clearly better on the left but we can’t play 4 at the back with Lewis and ASM in the team as we just get destroyed down the left.

Alan Smith really doesn't want to give Darlow any credit. Yes he had a shocker on the corner but it was a really good save from the Romeu shot.

Not been impressed by Schar tonight, can we get Lejeune back.

Hopefully create something out of nothing and cause the team to have an awful shape.

We're doing our usual thing again where we are overrun in defence and then have no outlet in attack.

Second to every ball. There’s a cliche about one team wanting it more. Feels so true in this game.

Zero plan on or off the ball. Pressing in ones and two rather than as a unit. No control in possession.
I had the first custom w***

Dive by their player trying to steal a pen.

This. It's pointless working hard unless you're all following the same pattern.

Schar just looks totally disinterested.

Alan Smith really hates Karl Darlow. Or Sky have been instructed not to praise any English keepers following Southgates comments...

Really hope PPV isn't scrapped or I might watch us play a few games.
