    Hahah always said I would call them out for being poor and credit when due.

    He got the subs horrendously wrong today but I am not getting too upset like other years. If we were we would be calling for him out as we have same points as this time last season.

    Yes subs absolutely killed us today. Ndombele going off changed the complexion entirely and Moura had a terrible impact.

    Probably doesn’t help that the atmosphere is almost as bad as during the 2nd season at Wembley.

    Don't really agree about the subs, it was like for like position wise and although you could argue the quality wasn't like for like (winks for Ndombele)...we were 3-0 up with 10 mins left....youd still probably win if you bought 3 players off and sent on noone.

    Great point. With 8 men our meteorology would have been correct i.e. see the game out, dribble to the edge of the pitch and dive, defend with your lives, no silly fouls etc.

    Although the subs didn't help us at all and probably became a fundament for loosing momentum, you can't blame Mourinho for giving away 2 points in the most unprofessional way ever possible.
    We have a huge squad full of international players with 2 matches in a week for long parts of the season. He needs to make changes, otherwise our in-form players will be fcked and the bench players become benchwarmers without confidence.

    It's the players fault who weren't able to step up, protecting a 3 goal advantage.
    I'm talking mainly about Winks, Sissoko, Moura. Partly about Aurier and Sanchez, who can play solidly for long spells of the game, but in the end come with a brainfart. Inability to give everything on the pitch, tracking back as hell dogs (at least while playing on fresh legs), inability to be calm and confident on the ball nullify everything players like Kane, Son, PEH, Lamela, Reg contribute to the game. Kane and Son don't deserve such sh*t while being on form of their lives and breaking all the records. Son looked absolutely devastated while being interviewed after the game.

    I think Mourinho should have a strong conversation about last game both with the hole squad and in private with some personalities. 'Get a grip or follow Alli's way to the Europe league clashes'.
    Without taking in account our poor games against Everton and Plovdiv at the start of the season, we look amazingly well in attacking third (even more lethal than during best periods of time under Poch as Mourinho changed the style of ball delivery and Kane's role in the team) but our defensive organisation destroys everything. We were much more stable under Poch and lots of matches are remembered when we successfully protected a one-goal lead in much more difficult circumstances. We very rarely conceded early or late in the game.
    The situation is very sad and I'm not sure we can clear it with the defensive players we have (mainly I talk about centrebacks and defensive midfielders). Hopefully Joe Rodon will have some sort of positive impact.

    The season can become a russian roulette: in one game we'll be able to destroy any team and hold the score, in the next we'll commit suicide while destroying another one, in the third we'll need to cope with the injuries/absences of our in-form players and look absolutely dull because bench players wouldn't step up.

    The irony is, if ever there's a manager who would never let a 3 goal lead slip with 10mins to go ...it's Jose.

    What are we doing to him.

    Hard call (and I am frustrated as fudge with the result) , in the end we weren't great but it was -> set piece -> no pressure OG -> worldie in last minute after brick clearance.

    - If you had Dier and Toby, does it happen?
    - If we did the usual Ndombele swap for Lo Celso, does it happen?
    - If Kane's shot against the post goes in or Bale finishes his chance, does it matter?

    I honestly don't think this is witch hunt time, we know Sanchez isn't the guy, and Winks won't cut it. This will hurt everyone and hopefully keep complacency away.

    Team is a work in progress, lets see the response Thursday and Sunday

    Dont think Jose made the wrong subs, we were awful most of second half and needed fresh legs, Moura on the break, Winks to hold up the middle, think the subs were the right ones.

    The issue is, they were the wrong players we needed on the pitch. As @Raziel mentioned above and i posted in another thread, if we had Lamela to bring on, this result doens't end up like this. Crazy i know, but he's the sort of dingdonghead you need to close off games.

    Dier's got a strong meteorology that Jose loves, also lacking.

    Am fuming but think Jose made the right calls, just a brick show that Winks didn't put his foot through the fudging ball.

    Agreed on the subs. Seemed sensible enough.

    The way we played overall both before the subs and after needs questioning. We were clinical in the extreme to be 3-0 up, yes we deserved to be ahead and it was a very good performance in the opening half an hour. But after that we were not very good. The players seemed to think the game was over and we were punished.

    Good lesson for the players, but they need to learn quickly.
