Do we play the worst football in the Premier League?
« on: Sunday 27 September 2020, 04:28:31 PM »
Today was shocking, not even trying to score. Not just today but you can make the same accusation about our team for the last 3-4 years. Who else has been as boring as this? Pulis’ Stoke? Big Sam’s Bolton?

Bottom, well clear of second bottom. Rancid s****.

Edit - meant in terms of the 20 teams in the league currently.

Think we are probably one of the worst ever.

The most disgusting, turgid s***.

Sam's bolton played an actual system and had a plan. We are like oldham or some s*** from the inception of the premier league.

We are the worst. Close the thread.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

A team that doesn't create any chances or shots on goal has to be way down there. So yep, head and shoulders we are the shittest team to watch.

At least when we played with 5 at the back under Rafa there was cohesion and a bit of an understanding in how we'd counter if given the chance.

We’re probably the most pointless team in the premiership. We offer nothing. No excitement, no entertainment. Nothing. We’ve replaced sunlun as the turd that won’t flush.

Bottom or top, whichever way you look at it. Devoid of entertainment.

Alternatively...we are the most entertaining for everyone else to watch...we consistently make their teams look like prime Barcelona, or Brazil 70 and who doesn't want to see their own team destroying the opposition

It's Bruceball.

It's not like there's a plan his team fail to enact, it's that his players have no idea what they're supposed to be doing. Beyond a slap on the back and an encouraging word, Bruce just doesn't do tactics.

It's the same everywhere he goes. To be fair, if you're a support of, say, Hull City, and he's getting results when you're not used to getting results, he's probably the second coming.

If you're a Newcastle or Villa fan, though, where the expectations - of at least something entertaining to watch - are just that little bit higher, he's totally out of his depth.

Us and you are the highlights of his managerial career,  and I think one spin-off of that is that he feels extra pressure to get results, which too often translates into "do your best, try not to lose".

As I said on that Bruce thread, I distinctly recall my dad, when Bruce was at Blues, going on about how the results were OK but the football was the worst he'd ever seen.

Even Pulis and that god awful Stoke side had a plan.

The s*** we get served up is aimless horse s***. Literally relying on individuals to string together attacking moves and organise defensively. No game plan. No intention to win. No tactics.

It’s starting to remind me of Pardew. We rely on moments from players yet never look like scoring until it happens. The only difference is Pardew had better players to hide his awful tactics. I don’t actually dislike Bruce though, I quite like how he defends his players to a certain extent but he isn’t good enough at this level and shouldn’t be here.

To answer the question though I think we do play the worst football in the league. Most clubs have some sort of identity or system. We’re all of the place. I think we’ll be relying on three worse clubs again.

If I was Bruce, I'd ask for a young, up and coming assistant manager to take reigns of the tactical side of the game, and training.

He can then continue to blow smoke up their arses and be a 'man manager'.

The point got the c*** out of jail, it was horrendous and but for Darlow it would be 6-1

The last 2 games have made good players look terrible and that’s down to the plan  :lol:  As if we have one  :lol:

Genuinely the worst side(manager )  I’ve seen in the top flight in a black n white shirt and I’m over 50

Without a doubt. Look devoid of any plan whatsoever. The Shelvey-Hayden partnership in the middle is painful to watch.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too
