Rodrigo couldn't create a pint in a pub at the minute. What position was he bought to play? Its looking like a lot of money at the minute.

Well it doesn't really make sense because most.of the players didn't play last week or played 45 mins max so shouldn't be tired...

Playing as a 10, but clearly isn't one. When was the last time he did 90 mins?

The problem is he plays Rodrigo out of position. He usually gets subbed as he's not very good in that position. Don't think he was a Bielsa signing. I'm sure the money spent on him could have been better spent on a AM rather than a not very prolific forward. Not happy.

How can they be tired when they had two weeks off? It's the opposite, whenever we have a long break, we look flat. Leicester and Wolves for example. With short breaks, we beat Newcastle and WBA.

Why dont we sign players who suit the system? Isnt that Orta's job?

Costa didnt suit the system.

Llorente is a right cb when we need a left cb to replace Cooper

Rodders is a false 9 which we dont play being shoehorned into a 8/10 position which is the role we needed to sign a player for anyway.

Was excited about Rodrigo but he is definitely the wrong player, if it was a De Paul or a Rodrigoit had to be De Paul.

Why didnt we sign any full backs?

Why didnt we replace Forshaw?

What you fail to answer Peter is what next? Allardyce? Pulis? We are well aware of the squad limitations...If you can find me a manager who would get more out of this average squad...I'm in!

He was an Orta/Radz showbiz/'name' signing, rather than what we needed. Can see him sold in the summer at a loss tbh.

its the high intensity training.....they call it murder ball i believe.

too much time making them superfit, but too knackered to play.

need to concentrate more on tactics

Totally get that without MB we would still be in championship, but bielsaball does not work in pl

Because the club are stupid and delusional. It's obvious some players wouldn't be good enough, you can't be loyal forever.

Forshaw needs to do the decent thing and retire, rather than bleeding us dry. Radz will probably give him a new contract though.

He's not a 10 for me. 9 is probably his best position but the way we isolate the 9 he would struggle there aswell. He's not the aggressive type.

So why did we try to sign Cuisance if we don't need a CM? Spending money for the sake of it or just lying to cover their backs?

That being said we have imo a relegation level squad (as most newly do) and would definitely be relegated without MB and wouldn't have been promoted in the first place.
Alioski wasn’t first choice in the championship, yet he plays most weeks in the PL.

Bielsa really can’t rate Shackleton if he’ll pick Struijk in midfield ahead of him.

The whole thing is a clusterfuck. More players out of position than in.

If Hockaday was doing that week in week out fans would be going berserk.

Each season with MB we have a rough patch around midway. Every time, without fail, fans lose their s**t and go into apocalypse mode. Every time, there are also reasons to see, with injuries, forced rotations, loss of form and, more rarely, superior play or tactics from the opposition. Every time also, we've shown the character, desire and quality to come through it and succeed. We are where we are for a reason. We have a superior coach, some excellent players, and a superb spirit and philosophy.

We were never going to win every game at this level. Is this the first time we've lost to a lower placed club? It takes us time to click into gear and build momentum. I feared a Cup hangover for this reason. We need games and continuity, not breaks and constant disruption. Players are returning to fitness and from suspension... we'll get it back.

Sorry but that is a crock of crap....

I was in the army as you know...
The harder we trained the easier it was in a war zone, and we were certainly beasted a lot back at camp, and we would never have survived a battle had we not been so fit.

So in summary, training hard does not make you loose fitness or stamina.
