You're happy with the way Ousse didn't get anywhere near close then lamely stuck a leg out are You?


Ousse was OK at centre back, but both were at fault for the goal.


EEL is solely to blame. The cross was tame. Cisse should be able to rely on the centre half. EEL only uses his legs to stand on.


Cisse’s job in that position is to stop the cross getting into the box. EELs is to clear it if it does. Nichols’ is to stop it going in the net if EEL doesn’t clear it. The three of them screwed up royally, but that cross should never have reached the Box.

Absolutely Brando, also LouisMKD is (not entirely wrongly) questioning EELs ability, I'm am questioning Cisses commitment , nobody will convince me that a person of any ability could have done better in preventing that cross if they was entirely committed to the cause, if you check out his reaction afterwards will also point to someone who is stealing a living . Unforgivable

Maybe we should have gone in the away end.

There is a rumour Coventry will be playing here next season anyway.

That rumour is about as true as the one that went round about Simon Grayson was inevitably going to be our new manager. Complete bollocks.

I've heard a rumour that DM is actually Grayson's puppet ;)

It had nothing to do with commitment. Cisse acted like a centre back and went to defend the goal rather than close down the player & space.

It was DM’s fault for making a stupid substitution.

Cisse was having a perfectly decent game at CB, why change the CB pairing when you have a full back on the bench?

Puzzling

Fair enough, not having it though. Displays a poor attitude towards his colleagues and displayed a poor attitude towards that situation , maybe give him 6 out of 10 as a centre back is the best thing I'll say . His passing is best described as 'stupid" . We can't be having that in a relegation battle

I was also perplexed by the substitution.

I'm sure DM had his reasons but it clearly didn't pan out the way he hoped. If anything, it's a lesson in the importance of astute decision making as a first team manager.

I trust that as he builds up a better working knowledge of our squad, his substitutions will improve. Most will forgive him easily, given that he's only had three training sessions with the squad and he's inexperienced.

The difficulty for him will be learning quickly on the job, gaining the necessary data and experience, in enough time to give us a reasonable chance of survival.

One thing Cisse is good at is passing.

Would you mind asking him if he can do it during games please?

I don't think he can make it down to South London but I will try.
