So City and Liverpool play Tuesday, and they get to play Sunday. We play Wednesday, and get to play Saturday?
 

Saints will press us from the first whistle and we will utterly collapse. Quote this.

Sounds like hairdryers were set to high and hot yesterday at Cobham, as Thomas Tuchel gave the team a piece of his mind following Wednesday night’s debacle against Real Madrid, which came just a few days after a similar debacle against Brentford.

This wasn’t a time for discussion, as the head coach told today’s press conference. It was a time for the players to sit down, shut up, and pay attention. Oh, and to do better of course.

“It was not a discussion meeting yesterday. It was more that I gave my point of view, and that is sometimes also necessary. We take the players’ views very seriously and often into account, but after the last two games, we thought it is necessary to give our point of view.

“But it was behind closed doors and in an atmosphere where everybody can take criticism. [We] don’t point fingers, and we don’t look for people that are guilty. We are in this together. We needed to point out some things in our game that we are not happy with and where we could have defended and done better.

“It was about the game. It was about offensive principles in our game – what we wanted to do and lacked doing. Unfortunately, and a bit surprisingly, we lacked structure in the last game. Normally that is our big strength: you clearly see what we try to do and play. That was not the case, and it’s a big problem. Then you lacked the rhythm and repetitions of our attacks.

AD

“We lacked discipline in attacking and positional discipline. It was a big disadvantage on counter-pressing because we were not in the places where we were supposed to be. So, this gives a big disadvantage in counter-pressing. In defending, we lacked intensity and investment. [We] figured out the details because it’s not about general criticism, it’s about details about situations. It is about trusting in the players. I love the players, the group, I love to be involved. We can do better together.”

We haven’t had to deal with too much adversity (on the pitch anyway) in Tuchel’s time, with the team playing a very controlled, structured style of football with the express main purpose of being “hard to beat”. Losses, the few that we’ve had, have rarely been lopsided. Now we’ve had two such defeats in the space of just five days. “Untypical” is what Tuchel’s been calling it, clearly bewildered by the team’s sudden inability to execute familiar instructions consistently and at the high level we’ve become used it.

So hopefully the hairdryer treatment will have worked.

“You need to take care about the process, and right now, yesterday it was, to be honest with the team, explain your reactions and why it is like this. It is necessary for the players to see why it is like it and can handle it if the manager is sometimes angry. I think I had some reasons, and I presented my reasons. From there on, we go.

“Nobody will lack my support from now on, lack my love and appreciation as a group and as players. I love to be involved. Sometimes you have to handle this with any team in the world. This isn’t amateur football or youth football. In our group, it isn’t the same.”

I don't fancy this game one bit, we are in turmoil, and Soton  are one of the teams that up their game against us, can see us losing this one as well.

On a side note this squad is just not good enough, we need a major clearout, tear up the blueprint, and start afresh next season.

Keep

Mendy

Thiago

Rudiger (if he wants to stay)

Havertz

Mount

James

Chilwell

Get rid of the rest and yes I mean the complete MF's none of them are good enough now.

And start by bringing back Gallagher

Get Rice

and Tchouameni

Feels like if we don’t put in a BIG TIME performance and win convincingly here our season will unravel completely right at the business end. If we lose 3 straight games in humiliating fashion and then have Real Madrid again midweek I’m not sure we’d recover mentally.

This is the kind of match where we need our biggest players to step the fuck up. Win this and head to Madrid with some confidence that we can at least make them worry a bit.

This match is decisive, IMO. Need to regain some sort of form to keep our gap ahead of the rest & build some momentum for what is to come (CL & FA Cup semi).
