**** me I'm so pleased I decided to watch it in the bar rather than go to the game with the rest of t'lads! One of my mates got his ticket for free, he was ****ing robbed in my opinion, I quite easily spent the ticket money on lashings of alcohol and some thai food. That was ****ing awful to watch. We literally cannot play football....at all. We can barely string 3 passes together and have to rely on our more "skillful" players getting the ball up the pitch (Almiron, Atsu, ASM), or we just lump it into no-mans-land. I remember Lascelles even having a foray forward down the touchline after picking the ball up and driving forward, only to be fouled halfway between the halfway line and their box. It's what our so called attacking players should have been doing all game. Every time we had the ball there was at least 1 brighton player hounding us very quickly...you wouldn't have thought we were at home if you didn't know. I have to single Shelvey out in particular though. This guy was being touted for England a couple of years back....that's how **** our choice of midfielders was at the time. He shouldn't even be playing premier league football now, he's a ****ing joke. He's far too slow (not saying he's ever been anything else), but his particular brand of football is just ****ing archaic now. He needs to **** off to the MLS and try his worldie passes over there every time he gets the ball, they'll ****ing love him over there. Bruce needs to get these players organised and ****ing drilled and quickly. We played some god awful stuff under Rafa but at least we had some organisation and shape. Having to rely on players like Ritchie, Yedlin and Carroll tells you all you need to know. I've no doubt that Almiron, ASM and Joelinton will come good, but not the way we are set up to play at the minute. We are far too deep and allowing the opposition to pin us back and dictate the games. Our midfield is too close to our defence leaving a massive gap up to Joelinton. He can hold the ball up pretty well but by the time we've got our arses in gear we've lost ****ing possession again. We're not gonna score goals if we don't have the ****ing ball, its pretty simple and basic stuff. One thing I will say is that we've had a pretty bad run with injuries from the outset this season and Bruce is still getting to know his players and where they best fit. This is the club's problem, namely Ashley and Charnley as we brought the guy in halfway through a pre-season tournament in Asia. He's had very little time to prep with the players at his disposal so I'm prepared to cut him some slack but that won't last long with me. I'm expecting to see a vast turnaround come the turn of the year onwards. If we're still seeing the same dross week in week out then he needs to be not here next season for me. Hopefully we'll still be in this division but I don't think I'm that arsed now if we are or not.
