1st off may I take this opportunity to apologise to johny1989 for calling him a blurt yesterday on the chat. I was out of order.

On the game I thought for 70 minutes yesterday we played well and it was a massive improvement on anything else we've produced this season.

Finally some aggression, composure and fight was shown by these players this season which for me has been the biggest disappointment. Forget who we should have got and tactics or managers selections. This has been the single reason I have been angry with us. No matter who you have on that pitch if you don't play with this then you won't win games.

The dogs of war had a bunch of players that were second rate and had no quality compared to mid table teams never mind the elite. However, Royle built them into fighters and gave them the instruction to win the first battle on that pitch with no prisoners taken.

After we won this we played football and good football at that. How good? Take a look at the semi-final against Spurs in 95.

That sheer will to put pressure on the team you're playing without pause has been the biggest influence in this poor run. That is the players fault 110%. Not one of them deserves exemption.

Before you say I'm defending Koeman I'm not. In fact he has magnified the problems with players in the wrong positions like DCL at right wing, no width, perstence of playing Williams and Jags yet Holgate deserves a chance in that position and the use of 3 at the back drives me insane. Plus a list as long as my arm I could go on about.

I am right on the fence with him. However, we had the same issue last season up until Xmas. We then turned a corner and were in the mix for a top four. I won't give him till then but I will give him the next month to turn things around.

I understand we have a large number of players in and out and maybe bedding them in against Man city, Chelsea, Spurs and United is not the easiest things to do but at least put players in positions and formations they are comfortable in.

So a month. He and the team deserve that. I'm not wanting all victories. I believe this is a good team and squad. It means nothing though if you are not committed in every game and to each other. If they show this and are angry and aggressive the quality will come through and we'll win far more than lose.

I just want to go the game without looking through my fingers for 90 minutes. After last year I thought we were past all this from the Martinez era. Need to stop walking under ladders, kicking black cats and start dancing in dog turd.

no need to apologise I was being a fool I don't actually want koeman gone I was just angry with the result as we deserved more.
although if he don't win the next 4 I do want him gone.

I won't argue with that Johny. I'm very much in the same way of thinking. I hope to God we go on a massive winning streak. Not for him but for our season.
