Southampton result now means we’re mathematically safe too :scarfer:


Could you hear you all loud and clear from my armchair! :thup:

Not long back from the game. Good performance - started with high tempo and deservedly led. Second half was more on the break but never really gave Leicester much of a sniff. And the atmosphere in the away was fantastic.

Fantastic support and singing from the fans, I hope it comes across loud and clear on telly later.

Certainly didn’t give the home fans the chance to wave those silly cardboard flapper things :lol:

The players could have no complaints about the level of support from the travelling fans today, support they had scarcely earned last weekend, but it was loud and proud from the off.

In turn the supporters were rewarded with considerably more application today than was in evidence last weekend in a game short on quality, and it must be said, opposition .Leicester were, if not on the beach, in the department store buying their summer trunks. Still you can only beat what's in front of you, and we were well worth the win.In fairness the one moment of sheer quality came from our skipper who buried his volley with perfect technique.

Having said that there's no doubt our squad needs massive restructuring, with as many as half of today's starting XI not really up to the job : our league position is an honest reflection of their capabilities.In two short years we have seen our squad descend a dozen places down the league table, and at that rate of decline we could expect to be starting the 2019/20 season in the Championship.

As much as it was heart warming to hear the chants for James Collins to be offered a new deal it was just as worrying that our support rate him as "must keep" at the age of 35 in September.That says as much about the paucity of competition for places as it does the esteem in which Collins is held.

As for the chants of "we are staying up", my heart sank all the way to China .Is this what we sold our home for , is this as good as it gets ? A 2-0 away win to stay in the money league just 7 days before the end of the season .Proud. We "survived" , it's what I always dreamed we would do since I was 7 years old.It's all I ever wanted ..........

Unless I'm very much misjudging the situation we are soon to be looking for a new Manager and backroom staff , we have no head of recruitment, a majority shareholder who thinks he's a Director of Football , a ground many supporters hate, ongoing rows with our landlords, significant division in our support, a reluctance to invest, and, in a world cup year, a bloody short window in which to transform our wafer thin and unbalanced squad.

I'm glad for the 3 points today but seriously, where the hell are we as a football club ?

We are staying up ?

Seriously ?

I recall the “we are staying up chant” at the end of our 3-2 win against Wigan in 2010. Given our financial situation, and the abominable season that we had witnessed, and the fire sale of so many players to balance the books after the Icelandic deal went south, that was as good as it got. What could you expect with Faubert and Spector as full backs, and Kovac in midfield? 8 years later we are chanting it again. That is after moving home, the purchase of players from clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Lazio, AC and Inter Milan, Juventus, Marseille, the appointment of several managers (including several with Champions League experience), the breaking of record transfer fees on several occasions (Carroll, Ayew, Arnautovic,), some good investment in Championship players (Cresswell & Antonio) and the appointment of Noble as captain.

But like back in 2010 we have a constipated squad, full of underperforming players, who are no longer consistently playing well for the club, and in some cases have the capacity to do so. Out transfer strategy retains echos of 2010 (think of the Mido deal), and a reticence to spend. We are selling players, and not investing the profits fully. We have a very standard spine of a team, with one or two outstanding players, and the rest could easily be interchanged without much notice. We get hammered by both top teams and minors, and rely on the occasional good performance to keep us up.

Look, I’m delighted with the result today. I don’t subscribe to the nonsense that relegation might help us. But I feel we have regressed 8 years, only we are without our spiritual home. An eight year regression is unbelievable, and without remedial work, we will go down. PP has hit on many true points. Tonight is great for the short term, but the long term is anything but certain.

They seem to have downed tools for Puel, we have significant injuries with little quality cover.
At least the sun should be shining! See you all at the Counting House!

Good call, stripeyfox. You were not wrong!

As for the game, You will never get a better chance of beating us, our midfield is down to the bare bones, Ndidi, Iborra, James are out injured and Andy King is out on loan.
Puel needs a big performance from our players because if he loses this he will be sacked, if you guys come to defend then that may just play in our hands, but with our injuries you need to get at us, you will never get a better chance of beating us.

Again, you got that spot-on, Kenny!

If West Ham were a boxer right now we’d be price or Derrick chisora... kinda just hanging around whilst Joshua and Bellew get all the attention. At least Haye lost and went down fighting.
