Watched the Wolves v Southampton game last night, both were trying to win the game playing expansive football and it was wonderful to watch. Having recently beaten City by parking the bus because they were too scared to take us on playing like they did against each other. I maintain that its not difficult for a coach to set-up his team to park the bus and shouldn't be lauded as "genius" Maureen is the Anti-Christ of football hes not capable of setting up his team to play like Pep does So, Pep needs to find the elusive "Plan B" and find a way of beating the opposition when the bus is parked and more so when they score first

I had a look through the reaction to the Spurs loss and Pep performance thread and it's about half a dozen posters responsible for 90% of the doom-mongering, season is over, Pep is finished, club is pathetic etc. talk.

They post an inordinate amount of times in a single thread and like each others posts which gives a very distorted impression of how the forum is thinking. I think most people have kept their heads well enough and know how disrupted our start to the season has been compared to our competitors.
Would love to know which manager the "Pep Out" brigade think could better.

The simple fact is we are playing poorly at present and if we don't improve we will have to win the Chumps League to be in the comp next season.

You can make excuses , reasons all you like but in the end it doesn't matter and if Pep can't get this squad up for the fight each match and get the results the owners expect and demand he is cactus simple as.

Out football is boring this season , we have deteriorated markedly in the past 18 months and the results and performances show that beyond dispute.

We perhaps with the exception of the bottom 3 sides the easiest side to read and play against.

Every side believes they can beat us Burnley will be no exception now they have a win on board.

New players take time to fit in well some of them do but top class players hit the ground running from the outset.

Our midfield is very average and playing that way , defensively we haven't improved much and we don't score at the rate required anymore and are creating far fewer clear cut chances than last season each game.

This is as poor as we were in MP's last season if not worse and unless we get on our bike and start to take the initiative in games again it will be our worst season since Mark Hughes was in charge only for RM to come in and turn our fortunes around somewhat in the latter half of the season to narrowly miss out on Chumps League football.
In other words we've become a mid table side

Nah, sorry you've lost the plot with a lot of that, you lost me at "we perhaps with the except of the bottom 3". That has to be a wind up. I'll leave you to it anyway.
Seem a fair comment to me what mancity1 said
