Personally I think we need to forget about the style of play we have at the moment points are more important that style of play unless people would be happy with an attacking style and relegation I would rather get the points to safeguard our prem status and start again next year and I would rather finish 8th than 7th even if it were possible as I don't think starting so early again next season would do us any favours.

{Ed001's Note - do you not think you would have more points if you had actually tried venturing out of your own half? You have lost the last 4 games in a row, how would making an attempt to win them have been any worse than rolling over meekly for Spurs to give you a kicking, for instance?}

Correct ed best form of defence is attack.

Yesterday a team with a not so good defence beat the run away league leaders by attacking them, this team conceded 3 goals and won the game because they scored 4, don't mean to sound patronising but its simple, if you score more than your opponent you win the game, we can't win games by sitting deeper than the cutlery on the titanic, we need to start with a midfield of attacking players and actually play 2 up top and go at teams, if we concede so be it, we are conceding now anyways and offering nothing at the other end, so what have we got to lose?

{Ed001's Note - I like that comparison to the cutlery mate, made me chuckle that one.}

Have to agree with Ed001 and Eddy. You can't win games if you don't try. We need to grow some and at least have a go at teams instead of sitting back and hoping we don't concede. Sam needs to pick the best players and play them in their correct positions. He can't moan about a lack of pace when he leaves players with that pace on the bench. No other team in the league fears playing us at the moment and I don't blame them. We are clueless toothless and quite honestly it's embarrassing to watch.

Got to have a sense of humour Ed001 especially as I'm an Evertonian.

{Ed001's Note - good point. Though I think a few months more of Allardyce will be enough to test that to breaking point, if he doesn't stop being so negative. I really thought he would see this as an opportunity to show he can play pretty football too.}

Conventional wisdom says 40 pts is safe. On that basis we have 15 games to garner 13 pts. That's 4 wins and a draw or 3 wins and 4 draws or even 2 wins and 7 draws. I would be anxious about the 2 wins option as it smacks of a defensive set up and the ability of those tactics to return something from 9/ 15 games worries me. The least nerve wracking route is 4 wins 1 draw. For that you need a positive result from only 5/ 15 games. Surely not too much to ask if we actually try to win.

Everyone can see it. Most could foresee it. Ed01 is spot on. And was spot on when B. S. was in talks to take the helm. This is a knee jerk reaction.
Yes the club were naive in the summer. First ever time being able to afford to play with the big agents and get on sky sports daily.
I know the diehards hated RK for his love of Barcelona and they didn't like his arrogance. But he wouldn't stand for this tripe were getting served up at the moment.
I think Moshiri must be looking at the back of Bills head and contemplating pushing him down one of the stands. Bill compromised the club as too SW by pushing for B. S. Moshiri la, go get us a modern manager in the summer pal.
Hopefully a few of the G's who post here in the B. S. appreciation club can stop their embarrassing support of this dinosaur. #givemebackmyclub.

Bluegray87 what you say is true but tell me what team ever won with the philosophy we'll score more than you?

No one that I can think of. One game you single out there. Liverpool won the battle but are going to lose the war. Before that game Man City had 14 goals against this season!

That's why they are going to win the premiership. That game was a blip for Man City. One which they can well afford because they are defensively sound. Despite losing that one game. No one else can afford to have that blip like Man City can.

They are defensively sound which will mean they will win competitions. Just like any other team that wins trophies. Main reason Mourinho won so much is because his teams know how to defend.

Liverpool are a very good attacking team. No doubt about it but they won't win anything until they sort their defense out. If they do that they will be a force to be reckoned with.

Suggesting Farhad murder poor old Bill is a bit OTT MyTeam, especially in such a public arena 😂😂.

Pains me to say NBTB but Liverpool are only probably a decent keeper away from being serious title contenders and yesterday was not a one blip they have been scoring for fun and pressured the city back line into mistakes, we could never do that as we don't have men in the opposition half!
I want to see us attack and if we concede so be it at least go out on your sword.
City are not as good defensively as they are made out to be and have shown that the last 3 games.

15 Jan 2018 15:18:04
Ok he needs to fiddle a few more quid from his Russian mate and buy Bill out.

15 Jan 2018 21:11:26
Hey Bluegray87. Fair enough. It was City I was referring with the blip. 14 goals conceded before the game. They are sound defensively.
