For me there have been too many key moments this season that have doomed us. Its too late to turn it around, I would love to be wrong though.

The amount of times we have given away really soft goals like on Monday night or Martin kicking the ball out to their striker to score then the marginal handball in the same game just throwing points away through poor mental toughness. Just seems too many moments haven't gone our way and quite simply the effort in some games hasn't been good enough. We are just lucky there are so many other terrible teams this year which is still giving us a chance.

Game management throughout the season's been appalling as well. 3-1 up to draw 3-3 is unacceptable, Moyes idiocy in fixed times for subs & constantly making the wrong subs. Pathetic cup performances (again) etc. etc. etc.

Absolutely, I can only assume some players do perform magic in training who continued to get game time. When the likes of Lanzini, Masuaku, Sanchez etc. who are no where near good enough continued to play game after game. The clear and obvious issue of playing Haller up front on his own. The lack of investment of any sort in the defensive area of the field for two years. It's all so bloody obvious but for some reason people at the top get paid a lot of money to make bad decisions and sticking to them.

In-game management's something I've been moaning about on this Forum for years biggrin

It's been crap, w/ the exception of under BS, when I generally felt that if we were leading or drawing with a few minutes to go that was likely to be the outcome. Odd feeling, looking back at those years.

Apparently Soucek is out for minimum 3 weeks, bloody typical, can we ever have a player on the team that doesn't get crocked regularly.

If we don't win tomorrow then I would say it is certain that we are going down. As such, I expect us to go 2 up and then let them back for a draw / win! Saying that, nice to be 3pm on a Saturday at home biggrin

And the inevitable defensive ste - if you cannot keep clean sheets these rare goals you score count for nothing
