    Sois serieux, mon chum.

    We're simply playing the game all big clubs have done in the past when they want key players kept healthy for more important league fixtures.

    My experience is that if this happens there's an injury before the international break, not during.

    If nuno continues with the sit back and counter and we don't get the results we expect, I believe support for him will wane quickly.

    Yes most likely. But consider that JM too had an excellent start and for longer, but fans started to turn on him when defensive football doesn't get the points as expected. If anything from JM's last season with us, top of the league is good - provided that there is a solid basis for it. Next few weeks with injuries and Covid restrictions are going to test Nuno to his limits.

    I think I agree.

    We have to develop more ways of playing, that taking time is fine though.

    Mourinho failed to do that, hopefully Nuno can.

    Nuno is officially PL manager of the month for August.

    It feels good to have a man at the helm that gives reasonable answers without trying to sound like a stuck up bitch. Proper sweet talker, Nuno!

    I feel fans turned on Mou when it became obvious we would play football right until we scored, then scurry back and defend our 18 yard line for 73 minutes. That is no way to behave.

    I think they turned on him when this tactic stopped delivering results!

    I think they turned on him when he started digging out the players
    Scarily though, he was right. But h8m be8ng him, he never accepted his part in the problem

    Tough week for him, a lot to deal with, but that starting line up never really looked right did it? First black mark for him today.

    Squad decimated because of the internationals and Jon Moss there to finish the job.

    Son/Sanchez only first teamers missing.

    Awful team selection

    Awful tactics leaving the front 3 stranded

    Not changing it at half time.

    Negative tactics.

    Bergwijn and Dier started every game so far and after 10 minutes none of them were available either tbf.

    Two big issues with him today:

    1. That starting midfield was never going to supply Kane and Moura with anything. It was overly defensive and thus unbalanced us as a team.

    2. Not changing the midfield at half time when we had been hanging in the ropes, but were still in the game. We should've shifted one of Winks or Skipp for a creative player, to try to retain possession higher up the pitch and take pressure off the defence.

    Very, very frustrating.
