Evening guys.
I wrote on here last week that Mr Warburton may well be out of his depth tactic wise. I really hoped I was wrong but seems not. We were never going to beat Chelsea but a real game plan would have helped. And yes, I was there.
Sir Brian wouldn't be impressed.

Ppl keep saying work in progress. Where is the progress? We have not been convincing even in winning. It seems its warbo's way or no way. He confuses me!!!!

Doomer???? Realist more like. He had 12 or more matches at end of season. All pre season and about 11 matches thus season. Work in progress???? Regress more like. The players seem bored with him.

Its not going to be champagne football by the end of September if that's the progress you maybe expecting Rutland. It is a work in progress, personally I think people really should try and be a bit more patient. If we win on Sat does it mean we have turned the corner, no, if we lose does it mean we're getting relegated, no.

It is frustrating to watch us give silly goals away but think he needs more time to achieve what he is trying to do.

Put this game in perspective, we played Chelsea away in a cup game with 8 change ourselves. The bookies gave us 20-1, I was at the game and you always hope but really weren't going to win that one. Chelsea were ruthless with their chances.

Sorry Gingerkid, but I don't think it's that easy to just gloss over performances this season under MW. Against Chelsea, nobody expected a result for us, but what I did expect was for us to put up a good account of ourselves. 2 down after 19 minutes was just embarrassing. For me, MW has made 3 fundamental mistakes with his squad and tactics. Firstly, the defence. His failure to address the situation, having seen what happened last season is very poor management. Secondly, he had no choice over letting Britt leave, but replacing him with Murphy is another error of judgement. Cummings, who I think is a good player, but is unproven at this level. Thirdly, MW's style of play, the total possession football. I'm afraid that ship sailed years ago, and it's just not effective anymore. It's even worse for us, as we have zero attacking instinct so just knock the ball from side to side. Until MW addresses these issues, there will be no progress. Like others on here, the question of ability is now starting to be raised about MW.

I'm glad Henderson played last night because it backed up what I thought about him last season.
I know we were unlucky with Federici getting injured but it's a key position in the team and a big weakness for us until at least the new year.

RR1, yeah, I was amazed at how strong Hazard is for his size, he is a tough little character for someone with such ability. I remember him just shoving Lichaj off when he tried to make a challenge.

I still think its too early to make too much judgement yet Murdoch. I do think Cummings needs more help up top, maybe they can play Murphy with him? I really like Cummings but he is not getting the service.

I'm amazed Warbo s game plan v Chelsea was to try to out pass a n d out football them. It must have been like the Charge of the Light Brigade heroic but suicidal! As one French general watching at the brave 600 said "C est magnifique mais ne c est pas last guerre" ie it's magnificent but it's not the right way to fight a battle" against impossible odds! So come on Warbo give the lads a bloody chance and be more dogged and pragmatic!

People need a reality check. We were poor last year and could not defend. I blame MW for not improving us in any way defensively. Yes we are playing better football, but I honestly think that with the new forward attacking players we have, we have too many options . We have no settled team and players are unable to develope partnerships as too much change. Make us difficult to beat first, then improve our attacking. Ben B seams to have gone backwards
