We lost 0 - 3 at home to a team who aren't exceptional, but who are competent. That's unacceptable.

I'm going to be interested in Martin's explanation for that.
Problem is there are plenty of competent organized teams in this division

My prediction: Losing to an organised but very limited Cardiff will be his Swan Song.

There is absolutely no way we will pay him off. Too expensive for us now.

Just seen the short highlights on sky. Now don't want to single one player out for a team abject performance, but what was Grimes thinking for the 3rd goal. He had the chance to get closer to the man but allowed him to get the shot away. Bodies on the line, play the ball not the space.
That’s because Grimes is another who likes his stats too much.

Criminal, you could see he was setting to shoot, and let him have a clear shot.
We have too many lightweight players in the team who are more inclined to pass a man on than take responsibility

They were excellent today Ayala ochestrated everything with defence drifting across and shuting down everything. RM has gone into this game setting up for WB's when it is obvious now that we havent got any good enough. I will leave out Sorinola as i havent seen enough of him but what i have he needs to toughen up.

Wood had a lesson learned today i hope as he made a big schoolboy error for their goal. Both Jay and Ntcham both tried rolling players in wrong areas out of desperation and we were lucky to get away with it.I must be honest and say i think Fisher should have come for the goal. Overall one of the worst performances ive seen under RM with no glimpses whatsoever of the rare one touch moves that keep us hoping that we are gaining some consistency. Today was slow clueless football with wide players in space available for a quick pass being ignored and often Ntcham or Lati would then take the space and pass then go backwards so frustrating.

Why do you think that the Americans would be concerned by that?

After last season's game at Blackburn this is what I expected. We were hoping to have improved after one season however Blackburn have improved more and easily contained us. Score flatters Rovers and it is early days still.

Luton will be more of the same. Not expecting much at all.

There was no movement(which usually means you don't think your teammate will give a tidy pass) no commitment or passion.
It looked like they were sulking after a telling off and weren't trying.
I hope he hasn't lost the dressing room this early

I bet that little bastard Nathan Jones will be laughing his tits off when he sees his scouting reports :lol:
