Sick of Poch's excuses, just get on with it! We were 1-0 down when Hugo went off so had plenty of time to get back into it.

I do.
But he needs to stop playing the rotten defence.
He might feel like his hands are tied but I would genuinely rather play Sanchez and Foyth KWP and Sessegnon or youth players than any of the ones who get to start.
Wow. You just watched the team get played off the park by Brighton and still think he can turn it around. I envy your optimism/naivety/delusion

Poch made it clear the team needed rebuilding but we failed to get players out and get players in. Poch knew that a while ago but has not had the backing. The players think they don't have to work, move and support each other any more. Players like Dele and Dier who I think are his type of player have been suffering too much with injuries and Poch has been forced to play the same old players ... Foyth, Lo Celso and Sess of course have been out of action too and are just the type of young hungry players he needs in the team

Sorry but I will never chant that pricks name. Don't want him anywhere near our club. It ALWAYS ends in tears.
He’s absolutely adored at Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. He was also adored at Chelsea before they inexplicably turned on their greatest ever manager.

Not quite sure what you’re talking about?

According to BT Sports, in the last 5 years Poch has spent £87 million on players compared to £500/£600 million at Man City.

So, the question is, is this Levy fault for not providing the cash or Poch’s fault for not insisting on more money?

Discuss.

It's easy I just look at everything Poch has achieved and look at where we were before he came with Redknapp saying this is as good as it gets and I see that with a squad with not a lot of investment he's consistently qualified for UCL almost every year of his management with us.

I pity your knee jerk reaction and lack of perspective.

Watch the last 5 mins of that match, the players definitely gave up, same for today - BT Sport just showed our players hiding and not wanting the ball, they've stopped trying and playing for him.
That happens to any team that's dead on their feet, and has happened to us before this season when we're losing heavily late in games when we were a lot fitter and better organised.

Did Lamela give up today in the first minute when he made the pathetic effort to block the cross? I don't think so. We played our only decent football today in the last 15 minutes.

What did Jenas say?
In a nutshell that poch has been crying out for investment in the team for a while but not supported enough (quotes the low net spend etc) from Levy.
Also that the players are really throwing him under the bus at the moment and underperforming.
Was more detailed than that of course but I couldn’t disagree with anything he said.
