I was merely going to see who now is ready to cuss the state of the squad and manager, when only 2 weeks ago they was "well pleased" with the summer activities.
It's making an interesting comparison so far, believe me !
If we've learnt anything it's that some people can be fickle and that some will be critical or less understanding than others .
We signed a new team more or less and they're going to take time to settle down , most people will appreciate that - I suppose many of us were expecting great things from Felipe Anderson as he became our record signing , however last season's record signing took his time in getting going .
What I saw yesterday , albeit on the television and only a 20 minute screening was a lack of leadership on the pitch once we went behind - someone that galvanises the team when things go awry . Mark Noble might be thinking his time's up , everyone seemed to be looking to everyone else to do the job , some players were hiding it looked to me .
Then came the lame excuses - ' The Supporters left early ' , ' The players have to forget last season ' .
Pellegrini needs time , I really hope he gets it , he's the exact Manager we need , but this Premier League can be an unforgiving place . We need to get points on the board before we get left behind - if we do get left behind I don't think there's enough character in the Squad to get us out - I hope I'm wrong .
