Shocking. No composure, no plan, no clue. 

 

 

Um. Same plan as the one that beat Chelsea and Norwich. Looked great at 1-0 up, committed suicide with individual errors defending, then all the confidence was gone and we struggled.

Bad day at the office, get over it.

Analysis:

 

This game has been awful. None the less Stoke have played well tactically and completely locked down midfield, making it very hard for a team, that already lacks creativity, to be creative. Hard to play against a team that is so equipped to deal with crosses and physicality. Sylla isn't good enough. Gabby was poor, he seems to be deteriorating and the games where he turns up are getting fewer. The goals from Stoke were practically gifted to them through utter shite defending from us. Also the frustrating stop and start nature of the game prevented us from building any motivation whatsoever and we weren't helping ourselves out by giving away poor fouls out of frustration. Although i don't want to take any credit away from stoke, who tactically played well after shutting up shop, (certainly not through ability - they're also poor) we were shit and should have done better. We let Stoke get the better of us when we could have taken control, especially after the early lead. Unbelievably frustrating to watch that after stepping up so much whilst playing Chelsea. We appear to take it up a notch when playing good teams, but play absolutely shit when playing the other mid table mediocrity in this league. Just one big pile of shit really.

At least 5 players in this team should not be anywhere near the club next season.

 

Special honourable mention to Nathan "Braindead" Baker, a player who should'nt be playing for a Premier League team. 

 

4-1 loss at home to Stoke is an utter disgrace.
