Blaming players again is okay but it gets to a point where you have to look at the manager. We have a way better side than Southampton and are getting battered
And let's not forget we have a 20m plus Jose signing on the bench in Bergwijn (plus Alderweireld who was given a fat new contract on Jose's say so).

Quite simply they want it more than we do. That is the major problem - no fight whatsoever.

This is embarrassing

It’s been a long time since we got out-played week in, week out

All I want is for us to outplay someone. Anyone. Play some football with some semblance of tactics and drive. Hasn't even happened once since Mourinho took over. The life is getting sucked out of this team. This is relegation zone stuff, and no luxury signings can change it overnight.

Our midfield are clueless, Winks and Hojbjerg are sitting deep but have no idea of runners around them and are taken out of the game by one pass. Doherty is always out of position too, we have a squad full of thick players.

System is fucking shit. Morinho doesnt have a clue. Can sign Ronaldo and messi will make no difference in this shape

It’s so weird. What’s changed between the Mourinho who won everything everywhere and this one? Is it genuinely just that our players are so shit they can’t play the way he wants them to?
His negative tactics have become outdated.

When will Mourinho realise that Dier and Winks should not be starting. Lo celso and Alderweireld at half time please 🙏🏼

Said it many times, Eric Dier is a complete waste of space. Lacks the mobility to be a good centre back. Simply too easy to play around him. If Mourinho can't see that then he's fu@king blind.

We beat Arsenal and Leicester with Toby & Sanchez playing together, don't see why we can't continue with them.
