There is only one thing weirder than posting on internet forums... lurking on internet forums!

We looked extremely easy to defend against today. Not enough teamwork, too much giving it to one player and hoping he can take it on/ make something happen.Listening to Poch in that interview, something isn't right behind the scenes, it's obvious.
Really worried for us honestly at this point.
Agreed mate, this is why VAR is shit, refs like Dean will always be backed, regardless.Couldn't get the whistle to his mouth fast enough. I know as i was watching his spiteful display. Firmly believe he would have awarded that pen shout 9 outta 10 times were we not involved.
Levy will never leave, not unless the club is sold by Joe.If Poch does go then Levy needs to go as well as far as I am concerned.
Levy is the reason this club has not achieved success under Poch in regards to winning trophies, key moments when we should have made statement signings over the years he has been manager and he has failed him.
We would have never been a consistent top four side without Poch at the helm either, he saved Levys bacon after the AVB/Sherwood debacle.
Yes we made some top signings this season but the mismanagement around contracts, the lack of key areas like RB not being strengthend and a number of other issues alongside the past issues of failure to back him at key moments makes him just as much to blame if it all goes tits up.
A new stadium doesn't change that.
Mad some think we will finish ahead of Liverpool. Them & city on another level.Has anyone seen anything, anything at all in these first 3 games that makes them feel like we can do big things this season?
If I woke up and found out that AVB had swapped places with Poch this season then I would not be shocked based on the level of performances
Fullbacks sitting deeper is fine as long as the wingers stay high and wide and make runs in behind (see man city and Bayern and Juve). Son and Lucas however, are allergic to playing out wide, they're more like second strikers than out and out wingers. We also give up so much creativity by playing winks and Sissoko, who then don't do enough defensively to compensate for that. a) How often do those two pass the ball sideways to each other or a defender, or b) receive a pass and then turn their man and get goal side of him before playing a threatening pass? I'd say a) almost always, and b) almost never. Here's what I want to see from us.More to it than that.
I do want Kane to become more active. He has really changed his application since his younger years. No more channel runs. Is this a Poch application?
The Fbs are no longer a weapon in our side. They sit far deeper than they ever have and only provide width when the ball is in the final third. They are no longer making the break into the final third. Pool showed yesterday what early balls into the channels can do for a front three.
The biggest issue is our lack of a press. Since we decided to sit more, our clear cut scoring opportunities have taken a massive hit. We are relying far too much on magic strikes from stagnant build up. Gone are the days of winning the ball in the teams half and causing a ruckus. We did that today for 5 minutes and looked like we were about to break through, then we went back to sitting back.
That's absolute bollocks and you know it, there is no way these people you are referring to "went missing" you act like some posters have a vendetta against the club and just want us to fail which is absolute bollocks, it's the opposite, they want to see us succeed, hence why they point out where we are failing and need to improve.I am not criticising other 'fans' but the usual piss their pants merchants that come out in force after a Spurs defeat that a very large number went missing the minute Moura got his third against ajax.
Hes fucking what now?!?Sanchez has been our best player this game. A centerback should not have to be our best player against Newcastle.
Poch has to take a long hard look at himself because these tactics have to be put into question.
