    2019/20 Alex Iwobi

    He is a good player, he and Tom brought a much needed injection of urgency to the midfield today.

    He is a quality footballer, sadly, these days, we see so few of them we have forgotten how to appreciate them.

    Far more energy and urgency about the team with hm and Iwobi playing. We were actually quite good to watch today.

    2019/20 Marco Silva

    I don't think he has been given 1 or 3 games, I think he is already a dead man walking and we are trying to get his successor in place before we sack him.

    I don’t want Rafa either, but, I would have to credit McClaren with at least an assist in the barcode’s relegation.

    Quite surprised here, been out for a run, had a shower, checked in and he still hasn't been sacked.

    2019/20 Moise Kean

    Thing is, he could have had all that somewhere else, he could have joined Arsenal to sit on their bench, that’s all he’s doing here. The difference is, Calvert Lewin is keeping him out of the team here

    He must be sitting in his hotel room tonight thinking WTF have I done?

    Marco Silva (Poll)

    Voted sack, I probably would have been on the fence before his disgraceful after match comments, imagine trying to defend that performance. The man is as deluded as Martinez in his final months, the difference is, at least Martinez showed a little passion.

    Homepage Update: Marco Silva's Burnley Defeat Reaction

    I have always thought that he might turn it around, but, over the last few games I have lost faith. His reaction to the game today is, for me, the final nail in his coffin. If he thinks today’s display was in any way acceptable he needs to be sacked now. I think I could have just about...

    I’ve gone for Mancini because I don’t think we would have a prayer of getting Simeone. However, if we could get Wenger to come in with a younger assistant who he could gradually cede control to over the next 2 seasons that might work.

    2019/20 Marco Silva

    The players were certainly not playing save their under pressure manager's job today. Very little urgency shown

    Alan Ball as a manager

    Like all truly great players, he couldn't understand why the players he was managing couldn't do what he asked them to do. It came naturally to him, yes he worked hard at his game, but, he had a level of ability that could not be coached into average players.

    Silva must go

    Anyhow, back to Silva, I have said before, we fall apart as soon as we concede. The one recurring factor at the end of the season is that we did not concede in the games against Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd. We look decent enough week in and week out until we concede, at that point...
