Unhealthy.

 

Ok if you say so even if I dont neg many of them

 

Anyway dropping a player after one miss is one the stupidest things Ive seen in a while

 

Thats all

Give him a break, he has only just come back from injury needs a bit of time- but as usual the fans want top form immediately

Fessi was good with the ball and an outlet which we didn't have before (good subs for Penny)

 

but looked knackered when we didn't have the ball. Was he fully fit?

 

He looked totally disinterested to me. I was desperate for Mattias to come off cos he was hopelessly ineffective but Fessi just seemed to want to walk around. And when he did get the ball, even in oceans of space, he phooked it up as much as Mattias did. Then at full time he stood there with his hands on his knees like he'd run a marathon.

 

So, who does Jos pick?

A bloke who seems to have no talent but works hard for the team (Mattias)

Or a bloke with oodles of talent who just stands around waiting for the ball, not caring about doing his job for the team.

 

Based on how little he contributed when he did get the ball I'd struggle to pick Fessi.

 

But then I'd like to think I wouldn't have got Fessi so mardy and disenchanted in the first place.

 

A good manager gets his best players playing well

His body language was poor tonight and he did much more walking than you expect from a professional footballer. Was below his usual standard and still our biggest threat - Just watch the game - whenever he gets the ball he draws 3 players -  he looked very disenchanted though - Well done Jos...

Whilst FF did ok & I believe won the corner for the goal; at times he looked like he was making a point in not joining in some attacks. There were some obvious protest walks.

 

The message was clear to me; if you want me to be a midfielder with defensive responsibilities, don't expect me to bust a gut to join every attack.

 

All is not right in the camp.

Didn’t see the game, Forestieri strikes me as the sort of player though who responds when the team is built around him, Jos is never going to see the best of him from the bench. 

 

He needs a run of games for fitness and confidence.

Why is anyone surprised that a player who missed five games thru injury and played a full 90 on Saturday was only sub tonight?

 

He will be back Saturday.

Looked completely uninterested and peed off yet we were still better with him on the field, and he still looked dangerous at times.

 

Probably annoyed at being on the bench, then coming on playing left midfield, whilst Reach, a left midfielder, supports Nuhiu.

He clearly doesn’t like playing under Jos.

 

We all know he’s a temperamental luxury player. Takes a big character to manage these kinds of players and get the best out of them. 

 

We’ve seen it before with Di Canio.

This was exactly it. We all know he’s a massive man child, but at the same time he’s our most talented player. 

 

And  there is a clear divide in the camp. You can’t ignore so many senior pros and expect everything to be rosy with everyone pulling in the same direction. FF and Joey’s reaction to when Matias gave the ball away in our half told me all I need to know.
