Wonder what positives RM will eek out from this. The players aren't up to the style he want's.
He’s been here less than two weeks you ducking melon. They battered us today so no complaints. I really don’t get the grimes hype, I’d happily play Fulton alongside Downes and spend the money on a striker. Downes looks 10x the player of grimes already
What's your point you little charmer. Everything will be ok soon? Don't see it myself.


Summers coming time to dream the day away. :)

The best thing we could do with this squad is sell Grimes.

Genuinely.

I like Martin from what I’ve seen but our squad is absolutely dire.

Absolutely gutted about tonight. We were absolutely dreadful. Full stop.

Left 10 mins before the end for the first time in 40 yes.I've read some crap on here, but someone say it as it is.....that was absolutely fckn dreadful.
Want my head seeing to going to Bristol. That was gutless/clueless with not 1 player having any guts/confidence.
Gonna be a long winter.

I wish we'd do something more along these lines. Obviously injuries prevented some of this today, but still. Piroe must start at this stage. Paterson for creativity.

Reality check:

Stoke will be right up there this season… they’re currently 2nd with same points as Fulham in first.

Our manager has only been here a couple of weeks with a mediocre squad badly in need of some new players - a few which will come.

I’m expecting no more than mid table this season - I especially we’ll take a few batterings but fully expect we’ll hand out some too.

As has been mentioned above - Laird, Piroe and Downes are huge positives.

It’s still early days: keep the faith.

I don't want to see Grimes in a Swansea shirt again. I'm fed up of seeing his one-footedness, his multiple touches when one should be enough, his passing backwards, his awful corners, his awful free kicks, and his cowardice on the ball. Just take the money - however much it is. Although, on that performance no-one will be offering any. If he goes, he can take Dhanda with him.
Let's be honest he could take 7 or 8 of tonight's lot with him. A feeble attack, a midfield with no pace or creativity in it and a defence that looks light years behind last seasons.

Yes good post.

Stoke looked a proper side tonight to be fair to them, we have had a very tough start to season, need to get behind our young side, it will come.

This year will be a struggle, I have zero doubts, young side, young manager, complete overhaul in playing style, no parachute payments. It’s the start of a big rebuild. No more £80k per week striker to get us out of the sh*t.

Yes and we could have had easier starts - I’m sure it would have been rosier had we won a game or two against worse opposition
