Absolutely dreadful. Talk about the Emperor's New Clothes.

Still, we got rid of Sam, so let's delude ourselves that everything's gonna be fine.

The next 45 minutes - and the Porn Brothers response by the end of the window - will determine whether we survive in this division.

All the media whores will be licking their lips & salivating over the 'be careful what you wish for' comment after this performance.

Tony Gale saying he's sure Julian will talk to Cresswell and help him along because the last thing he wants is someone on his back. Maybe so but isn't it the first thing he needs? Want is irrelevant, and that goes for the rest of them. Slav's a cool customer but if he isn't giving some kind of bollocking right now then I'd be miffed.

I looked like a **** after the arsenal game having said that

Now I don't know......
I agree - I knew we were going to be lumbered with Bilic, but you can look at my posting history regarding him. We're on the same side here with regards to a bang average management option. I suppose the Arsenal game made me give him a bit more benefit of the doubt than it perhaps should have.

Yep it's all Nolans fault that we can't defend

Why did Ogbonna come off and not jenkinson?

I haven't been able to watch the game but I bet we have no width.

The fullbacks therefore are being asked to do too much and failing to either defend or attack properly?

So OK the full backs are having a mare ...but midfield is very narrow .....no challenges coming in anywhere around the pitch .......Poyet very quite .....just need to up their game all round.

Get one back in first 15 mins of second half .....maybe grab a draw out of this.

But going to be really hard now.

Shambles! One of the worst 45 minutes I have witnessed us play in several years.

Come back Sam. All is forgiven.

The European games are not a particularly good barometer as most of the players were reserves...

What ? they gonna get a cheer and a round of applause ? Give the crowd something to get behind. Obiang, Sakho and Payet seemed to be the only ones who gave a toss that half.

Apart from the fullbacks looking terrible, the problem is Nolan. I'm sorry but he isn't getting involved in the middle. They are strolling past us, which then allows them to pick apart out shaky defence. We need a 5 man midfield right now. Lanzini on for Nolan please.

**** it, what's the point, we should be 4-5 nil down and it will probably be 4-0 or 4-1

Bournemouth have had more shots on target this first half than we have had all season.

I'm beginning to see why we had to chuck the Europa after all.

This is terrible.

Yeah, we were terrible - but if that perfectly good goal wasn't disallowed it would have been an entirely different game.
