He was our token brainless signing that anyone with sense knew would be a mistake apart from sadly the people at the club who decided to sign him.
Should never of signed him. Will just pick up injury after injury and we'll have to put up another 2 seasons of it until his contract runs out.
It has to be up there with giving injury prone Winston Reid a huge pay rise on and a new 5-6 year contract
Back on topic though Pellegrini was absolutely to blame for that result. He got the starting 11 and formation all wrong.
We should've stuck with the 3 in midfield with Obiang playing. That was a huge mistake. He sadly didn't learn his lesson from the Watford game.
Perhaps playing devil's advocate he was expecting Burnley to play the 3 at the back again like they did against Everton. But after how well we played against Southampton and especially winning why fix something that isn't broke!?
Throwing Arnie straight back in too was bonkers.
Hopefully we'll go back with the 3 in midfield against Brighton.
