I have never said SFL should stay? Show me where I said that?

SFL lost the dressing room and we stopped playing and he ran out of ideas.

We needed a temporary manager until the summer.

We all know you're a Lampard fanboy mate, stop it.

Judging someone that has been here for three weeks is simply idiotic and braindead.

Come now mate, the games are coming thick and fast, the dude been here for 3weeks or so, new team and league etc, surely we are not pissing all over him already.

It isn’t lack of movement. It isn’t that we are static. Our decision making in the final third is simply championship level atm. 

People said we shouldn't judge Lampard after 18 months at the club but the same people now want to judge Tuchel after only 1 month into the job. 🤣

You're showing that your IQ is incredibly low. How can you like someone that was statiscally the worst manager in our history under Abramovich, but hate someone that won 5 out of his first 7 matches in his start as a manager in the middle of a season?!

Answer my post coherently with some good arguments please, if you are capable of giving those.

Lampard fanboys like you make me sick, and it hurts my brain when I read your posts. 

Dude shut up.

I respect SFL 

I agreed it was time for him to go

I don't like the appointment of TT 

What else do you need?

Mount improved in the second half and was definitely the only one out of all our attackers to create something...I did not understand the persistence to play with 3 CBs when we had less than 20 minutes to play and we weren't getting the ball into dangerous positions like  we did in the first 55-60 minutes. Our final pass was lacking the whole game but we lost a bit of control after the penalty and it was painful to watch. Southampton did their homework and overcrowded the middle and made us rely heavily on our WBs but they lack the pace  to go 1on1. CHO in for Reece would have been the better sub IMO. Poor performance and shit result but we didn't lose so I can live with that. 

We have 3 massive games ahead of us which will demand better performances and I really hope we deliver.

The first time TT was mentioned after he was sacked I said "no fucking way".

I respect SFL and always will. 

Trying to put words into my mouth is fine, but I ain't swallowing them.

I got on board the SFL out train. I can't even be arsed to dig up the posts. He lost it. It was a shame.

I thought he played well, he was driving and opening up chances

I have a feeling that Tuchel has sort of taken CHO 'under his wing'. Basically he expects a lot more from him, and is trying to hold him to a higher standard. 

Granted, his decision to bring on Ziyech instead did no favors, but its simply a case of Tuchel being strict with his pupil I think.

Subbing a sub is the ultimate kick in the knackers though. 

Ziyech did zero after coming on.

It was a big mistake IMHO

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. CHO was not doing what Tuchel was telling him to do so he pulled him off the pitch.

 

sounds like a manager to me

This is the problem

A team on the back of 6 defeats, and we have a massive defensive line up. That ironically couldn't even defend.

Azpi and James is overkill one or the other.

We know Kante and Kova don't work.

Tammy wasn't the right man - should have been Giroud. 

Zero diagonal balls and we looked awful when trying to break the press we all knew would happen in the first half.

I'm genuinely concerned for the Atleti game - but as an optimist, I'm hoping we win it.

He was still an incredible buy though- what £40ish million. The guy has single handedly transformed that team.

Had hoped one of our signings could have done that, but no sign of it so far, still could happen next season though.

You're still judging someone that has been here for 3 weeks! He took over a team that has been in one of the worst forms in the league, and he won 5 out of 7 and lost none ffs.

Give him some time and judge him next season. This is a manager that actually has a CV to back up his credentials as a manager.

I think its still premature to judge TT. He maybe got a few selections wrong today but this is the first time we have dropped points since his first game. We dropped points every week for about 2/3 months under Frank. So the improvements in results is already superior.

I think hes probably not happy with some of the players levels, such as Chilwell, Ziyech, Pulisic - more fitness wise and striking options right now bar Timo.

Should we be annoyed at dropping points v Southampton? Yes. Would we have got back into the game under Frank? Quite frankly, no and unfortunately right now that is the comparison we have to make because this group hasn’t really achieved anything to be held higher to right now.

We have bigger games coming up, two legs v Atletico is arguably the toughest games for me. Said when we drew them and people sneered at the quality of them but they are everything our sort of team struggles against; physical, organised, disciplined, with quality in defending and attacking areas. 

I think the AVB mk 2 comment is a bit OTT also. If anything it would be more appropriate to Lampard no @Muzchap? Seeing as we looked tactically incompetent and Frank lost several of the players...

Ziyech is a donkey , weak ass set piece merchant , why bring him on 

his corner was the last opportunity to get a shot on given how we had a height advantage with them only having 2 tall players on. he failed to beat the first man, jus tso frustrating...

The guy is fucking useless.

Happy to agree wagers for those that believe I'm wrong 👍

Think it's pretty obvious you already have a pre-conceived notion about Tuchel. Any time we don't win, it's just an opportunity for you to go all self-fulfilling prophecy on us here.

Hopefully next week he can have a off day...

Well at least you are no longer throwing insults at me 👍

Look, I won't change my mind. Maybe if he wins back to back league titles and a couple of CL finals. Then I will humbly beg for forgiveness. 

I don't know why, but I'm 100% convinced he is the wrong man for the job. What's even more bizarre is I don't even have a replacement in mind. I just 'believe' he won't be successful.

Like I have previously said. I hope I'm wrong.
