    13 points from 6 games is not a bad start to the league campaign at all We've looked shaky more than once, but it's a results business when all is said and done, and he's getting the results in the league right now Considering he hasn't got much of a squad to work with he's doing well thus...

    I'll be shocked if he hasn't already got an angle worked out for when Benitez leaves so that he can create maximum fume He probably has an Excel spreadsheet with all of the likely scenarios and possible ways he can work it. The poor intern on work experience likely had to set that up for him

    Imagine if Pickford isn't back in time for Man United? Ronaldo Vs Begovic If that's a boxing match then Rocky needs to throw the towel in or Drago is going to kill Apollo

    I think some of the hero worship this guy got on here highlights the folly of bigging someone up in a near cult-like manner before they've actually really done anything to deserve it At least you don't get fired out of a cannon into the moon for having the gall to question his infallibility...

    Pretty certain it was a WUM post and you've just given him what he wants to be honest Either that or he needs to lay off the cooking sherry when he eats his breakfast

    2021/22 James Rodriguez

    The manager don't like him, so some supporters have chosen him over the player in the dispute

    He was Longeran might have done better with them, who knows, but his hands were kind of tied with that selection If he'd rested Pickford then you could make the argument that his team selection was at fault. He didn't have Pickford to choose from though, so it's pretty unfair to clobber him...

    No they weren't We gifted them their two goals and they did very little else to trouble us A competent keeper and we win that in normal time It wasn't an amazing performance from us, but it was serviceable and enough to go through if everyone did their job Begovic and some of the defenders...

    2021/22 Rafael Benitez

    Who else was he supposed to play in goal? Pickford is out, it's not like he rested him. If he had then maybe the point would stand, but he didn't That squad was good enough to win but Begovic was crap for both of their goals and didn't get anywhere near any of their penalties Again, I'm hardly...

    2021/22 Rafael Benitez

    I think there are plenty of things you can reasonably critique Benitez for thus far into his run as manager The handling of the James affair The generally rubbish standard of football The fact he seemingly couldn't care less about the fact he's a divisive appointment and has done next to...

    Yeah and if we beat Norwich it will be six 4+1+1 = 6 And QPR didn't "tonk" us We lost on pens because Begovic is crap. There's a difference Benitez wasn't my pick and I'm hardly his biggest fan, but fair is fair. 13 points from our first 6 PL games isn't a bad start, and to say otherwise is...

    4 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat whilst being undefeated at home is fine for his first six league games It's a results game and he's mostly getting them, that'll do for this season, especially with our squad limitations

    Win against Norwich and it's a good start to the league campaign however you slice it

    Absolutely Played well and staked a claim for more minutes over dross like Iwobi

    2021/22 Anthony Gordon

    As always you need to grade the younger players on a curve He's not going to tear it up every single time, but whenever he has a good game like he did Tuesday then it has to be considered "job done" for the time being All he can do is make the best use of the minutes he gets in order to stake...

    2021/22 Anthony Gordon

    To me our entire set up makes no sense otherwise He trained well enough to get a game and then played well in the game itself The next step after that is for him to keep his side of the bargain by training well, at which point the manager trusts him with more minutes, especially as there...
