Why do our players constantly make bad mistakes. Every single game, I guess it just actually shows that they aren’t very good players to be honest.

I understand the lineup from Mourinho to be honest, and he isn’t to blame for the fact our players are such brain dead idiots.

Dele is not a striker. And certainly not a hold-up-play striker. Do people understand this?
He doesn't need to pretend to be a target man but he can definitely do more than what he's doing so far.

If he gets control of the ball properly he can be a False 9 and make the defenders back off.

I must admit I’m starting to lose faith despite understanding the circumstances.
Surely a decent coach would be able to get us looking organised after 5 months. Our players look utterly clueless, game after game. I am slowly coming to the conclusion that Jose isn't the right man for a situation like this.

Blind hope. I just can't figure out how this collective of players have massively regressed to the point where they cannot seem to string a succession of passes together.
I’ll help you out with that mate. It’s the manager, the players are disorganised and demotivated and it’s just going to get worse.

At this point I'd rather play Jan up front. He looks like the only one who can play football

This is pathetic! Defense are scared shitless, no creativity, no desire, no intensity! Just fuck off!
Scared to make a mistake and because of the way Jose has us set up to contain we are constantly under pressure. Best form of defence is attack and all that: if we had them pinned in they wouldn’t be peppering our goal.

Its Burnley and this is embarrassing

This is ridiculous. Vertonghen in a great position to cross, and no one is there. Alli has to step the fuck up here.
I'm not sure Dele is the problem, I think the issue is people expecting Dele to be Kane, Son and Eriksen all rolled into one.
