Hi guys, I can understand the frustration from today's game against Swansea. We have to find a way to beat teams who want to 'park the bus' in their own half.
We have quality players in the squad and need to employ those in positions that challenge the opposition. Watching other teams that encounter this 'park the bus ' problem, they rely on a lot of movement around the penalty box, working their triangles until an opening appears.
If we were 'stage drunk' after the mid-week success over BD, the coaching staff have their work cut out to keep the players focused.

Problem is Tiffy, what creativity do we have on the bench if Erikson and Ali have a quiet game.

I agree with The Raver a great day at The Cottage. What a difference it makes when players are played in their best positions. Deli and Erikson both serving Kane and at times even had their own chances. I even liked the fact that Davies got forward and took on players. Sissoko coming on, limited Trippiers forays forward but the manager can work on that.
Injuries permitting, maybe we can go with the same team for Thursday's game.
It could have been a bigger win margin but happy with the result. Well played Spurs.

On the eve of our new season, I would like to wish the squad and staff at THFC all the very best. Let's start how we mean to go on with an emphatic win at Goodison.

Fully agree tiffy, its a perfect time to play Everton as I think they could be a serious force in the league with the huge amounts they are going to spend to a already good team. I also think spurs are the most serious threat to Utd and city this year with arsenal having injury problems again and Chelsea needing another season under Conte before they kick on, some of my mates reckon spurs won't be nowhere near the top 4 are in for a big shock, Up The SPURS.

You will be shocked if you think Spurs will be up there lol.

We will live to play another day and I am hoping it will be with a bit more gusto and the ability to kill a game off! Why did we appear to run out of steam or ideas in the last few games, I don't know, was overtraining or overconfidence that teams would just role over for the 'second placers'.

I do not attend the games, so I cannot begin to feel how let down the regular fan must feel right now. Ok, the Managers goal was a top four finish, which is what he got but to be in touching distance of the top slot and not appear to go for it, is hard to understand. So we get to within 5 points or less and finish off the pace by 13 or so.

Anyway enough whinging, the Manager has seen enough and wants to spend on new and clear out the under achievers. I look forward to that. In the meantime, good luck to those players representing their respective countries in the Euros, otherwise, get some rest, reflect on what might have been and come back stronger next season.

This was always going to be a tough game and so it proved. Only Poch knows why he made that team selection and seeing some of the inter-player gestures after each goal, I hope he can get them mentally prepared for Sunday. It's a lot easier when you are winning, but a tad get more difficult after a thrashing.
The standard that we must aspire to was on show last night and well done to Dortmund. If we are successful in attain a CL qualifying league position, this type of fixture will be the norm and we should be prepared for it.

I don't really have a preference who makes the team today, not being up to-date with fitness/injury issues. etc. All I ask is that whichever 11 players start today, they show a commitment and determination to succeed unlike the away fixture earlier in the season, where most of the players never got off the team bus!


1.) 03 May 2015 17:11:04
That's all most of us have been asking for every game this season.

I agree NES, a clear penalty shout ignored and 4 or more in front of goal opportunities. I know Poch values squad rotation but come on, the prime aim is TO WIN THE GAME. Son is in form so why have him on the bench? I feel Sissoko and a few other players should be given 'the only' pep talk that is relevant "Shape up or ship out". This current level of inconsistency is what will get us middle of the table status if the players do not improve. Dier looked very mediocre last night (I know there were others) but don't you think that once players get an England cap (same with Walker) they think they have made it and there is no need for them to improve or play to a high standard week in week out. Poch needs to re-instill in the players a winning mentality that sees them play with confidence and then play our strongest team on the day.

There are two tactical and one mental issue (I'm sure there are more) I would like to highlight, which in my opinion are giving us problems. Firstly, the lack of width is giving us fewer options out of defence and going forward, making it too easy for the opposition to contain. Secondly, a high percentage of our midfield inter-passing is breaking down, leaving us very vulnerable to counter-attacking. Keeping players, not just designated players but anyone out there on the touch line, means the opposition have to cover, which creates more space down the channels and centrally for exploiting or not. This does not mean that we have to play with the equivalent of old fashioned wingers, just have players out there to play off. As for the inter-passing, this should improve as players in the team get to know each other's movement better, there have been signs of the 'triangles' working, however, this appears to breakdown more times than we would like and needs addressing.
The mental issue, where we seem to be unable to concentrate throughout a game will take a bit more effort to resolve. I agree with the previous posts regarding the lack of a natural leader in the team who can take charge when lapses in concentration happen. The quick second half goal scored by Newcastle is a prime example and whilst we all may lay the blame at the right back, even our 'trusted' International who is currently injured has been caught out of position before!
In closing I would just like to emphasis a prediction of mine from an earlier post. Harry Kane will be an England No.9.
Now back to the training ground. COYS.


{Ed001's Note - the mental issue could be down to fatigue. Poch trains his players much harder than most managers and that often leads to players being tired in the early days of his reign. As they get used to the extra training session that might well resolve itself.}

I thought Remy failed a medical for the Liverpool transfer, if that is true, why would we proceed?
