not just the result, performance irks me

It’s not just the recent results where we’ve dropped 8 points in a week, it’s the manner of the losses, the performances over the last 3 games against Palace, Liverpool snd Leicester that irks me most.
We used to lose matches playing progressive attacking easy to watch football. Now we are losing matches by playing awful boring negative defensive hoofball. I don’t like the way we play, never thought we’d win the League playing like this and am bored and turned off by it. We do have players that can play attacking progressive football with impetus, but they are shackled by José’s tactics and fear of reprisal if they drive too far forward. I for one do not like what we have become. To Dare is to Defend

It's not playing this way that's the problem. It's only being able to play this way that's the problem, need to be capable of playing on the front foot

That’s a fair point! Is it the manager or the players or both that can only play this one way, and not be able to adapt?

Like I just said on the other article, I'd rather be bad under Poch than bad under Mourinho. With Mourinho you know what approach you're going to get so attacking football will always come second to trying to get a result. Plus when it's bad under Mourinho it's the inevitable baggage that comes with it - manager excuses, falling out with players etc.

Tactically, we’re one dimensional and predictable. Any opposition manager knows exactly how to formulate a game plan against us. It’s the same old formation and tactics, even personnel to an extent.

Look forward to Fulham dominating us next week.

We play Wolves next so it'll be worse.

Must admit, I’m hating watching us play. Don’t look forward to it at all, even when we were winning, didn’t enjoy the game itself, only the goals and the end result

Wouldn’t surprise me if Marine dominate us and have 60+ percent possession

I struggle to watch us. Sure, I sit there. With the game on, but inevitably start looking at my phone, potter around. He’ll, once I even spoke to the missus during the game.

It’s just dull as dishwater.

Did the floor need tiling in the first place? Or you’d just do anything to turn it off?!
