We've seen these performances time and time again over the past ten years, we have the odd brilliant game against a top team (though I'd argue that Chelsea aren't a contender this year), and then a couple of games later, lose to Swansea, Stoke or Southampton.
There is something in the psyche of the club that stops them being consistent and fighting hard for every game, and don't kid yourselves you've seen this repeated every season.
The club has never been the same since David Dein left, and he was an integral part to the management of the club/team..
You will not see anything but the same story repeated again and again under this manager, his time has passed...
I've been consistently saying this, on this forum for over five years, but like misguided cable believers, some of you are blinkered by past glories and and a dream that the good times will somehow happen again under this manager...
Despite being abused and sworn at on here over the years for saying what some of you don't want to hear, the fact is I'm right and the situation has not changed one jot during this time...
in fact some of you have changed your position on the cause for the team's continuing performance rut, and I deeply respect you for that.
Some of you wont change your mind or accept the reality of the situation, and good luck to you for that also..
Some of you are newish posters to this thread, and I admire your continued enthusiasm for the status quo at the club. However if you want to see change then it's in the supporters hands, if not then please continue as before.
Just a suggestion, have a look at the first 20 or so pages of this thread, over five years ago, look at the comments and frustrations expressed. Has anything changed?
Peace and love.. 😃
