i really cant stand ivanovic playing as a rb ..he cant cross for s**t
blame schwartzer for fumble that shot back into the danger zone and azpil losing the ball and diving in recklessly. WHY U DIVE IN EVEN U KNOW UR IN THE BOX?
Silly mistakes cost the game and possibly the title
Mou also has to take some of the blame for the tactics he used today. We def didn't need oscar nor willian on the pitch to track back for this type of game today. Sunderland were going to pick their moment to attack, so why not start with 2 attackers instead of a cam...... Ba and eto'o starting upfront would have been perfect
bluff, possibly lacking a better target man up front is hampering our progress this season..
I think Mou has to take the blame in the sense that he hasn't been able to improve us in these types of games. Palace, Villa, WBA, WH, Sunderland and most likely Cardiff in two weeks time.

Same sh*t different bottom club.
yeah exactly, he needs to do something about this next season. Winning the title doesn't include just beating the big teams. It's more than that. This is his weakness atm
I think he took blame for it a long time ago, but many dismissed it as mind games.

He clearly stated we had no striker and all the ones we would want to go for in January are either too expensive or cup tied or both.

I don't understand how we all can be freaking out left and right when this was such an obvious problem that Mou has, once again, clearly stated would be fixed in his next year.

Guys, if strikers can't put the ball in the net with all the clear chances they had that is the player's fault, not the manager. The manager, as basic as this sounds, sets up the team tactically so the striker can have enough chances to score and the defense as solid as it can be to allow for the scoring to happen.

In all the games we lost, did we not have more than enough chances to score?

Plain and simple, we need new strikers during the summer window and until then I honestly don't see how we can complain or act surprised that this is happening.
+2
Definitely. We all know what's going to happen, yet he does nothing to (effectively) try to change it.
@Aatir precisely the reason i'd have liked to see more of Ba, he would'v been better starting some of those games as opposed to Torres. In fact, he should'v started today. The only reason i can think that he didn't was that Mou was saving him for Tuesday, same with Luiz

@Ghanakid21 Mourinho is not untouchable here, starting Torres against Palace was idiotic, and losing that many games to those kinds of clubs in the manner of which we'v done so especially with our resources and talent is just not acceptable im sorry.

I can understand 1-2 freak results here and there, but we are talking about the 6-8th time now, story of our club during the post Didier era, only this time it hurts a hell of a lot more. Better now then against Cardiff i guess.
@Theo, what are his options? Look at our attacking options and tell me what would you do better. He's already started Schurrle as a striker more than once and that was useless.

@Bluff, no one is untouchable, but that doesn't mean we blame people for things they don't have control over. No manager can pull a rabbit out of a hat and just win games without having proper strikers.

Even Fergie, who arguably won the league with a team on the verge of a collapse, had Rooney and RVP who put in great shifts up front.
+1
I said below, change formation.

We have changed formation several times during games and have been able to steal some goals, so why not ditch 4-2-3-1 for these games and try something else?
nvm, no point in this discussion now, lets see how things pan out after the summer window

at the beginning of the season i'd have taken 3rd or 4th and a long cup run, so i guess i shouldn't complain too much, potential is there.
I dont really think bringing new strikers will change everything, people on this Forum will quickly look for scapegoats after every defeat. Bringing new strikers means New Players trying to adapt to New players, probably New environment etc. What if the Problem isnt the strikers but the style of which the Team plays? For instance if ba,torres, etoo played for real Madrid how many goals will u think theyd score? If benzema,cavani, mandzukic were playing for chelsea will they still score that many goals?😕
btw etioo... i think mou usually takes the blame a lot lot..

comment from WAGNH

"if we had to rely on refereeing to beat bottom place sunderland we dont deserve s**t."

lmao true story
+5
Any thoughts on how poor we are at set pieces these days?
You are right Ethio bcos of our inconsistency but Referees also play a crucial role in football, you can be screwed up by the referees (Obvredo rings bell) as well no matter how much performances you put on.
Do you consider penalty a set piece? Chelsea have been very poor defending penalties lol
Rui Faria obviously watched the Madrid derby:

http://s3.amazonaws.com/br-cdn/temp_images/2014/03/02/5272919b3ffeb0d8c8dacdb9dbf3bd0c.gif?
Carbon copy lmao
Every PL loss this season has been right before a Champions League game. Damn these dudes can't focus
IMAGINE IF Ramires is the one who slipped... And concede the penalty... Lmao one can only imagine the amount of hate he'll get.

The fact that Azpi is well liked and consistent, doesnt get Bashing frm fans alike
+2
Aaron, finally someone who is sensible enough to. I was thinking what if ramires or mikel or luiz would have done what azp. did?
Azpi has mistakenly sneezed on you guys like 2 times, easy forgivins.... Ramirez has rinsed all your faces wit Silvia like over 20 times....
How can you compare both ;')
wasnt his fault that the ref gave a penalty was it? The thing is we expect more out of our players than they are showing as the title race heats up.. someone will always be in the spotlight.
he can pass but can cost you the title
Ramires' case is not spot ligth rather brutal hate
Difference is, azpi can actually pass. ;p
This question is always posed here after a player makes a mistake. I feel like I'm having De Ja Vu all over again. It doesn't matter that Aspi made a mistake. He's not been under scrutiny from the fans. Ramires has, Willian has, Luiz has, and Oscar have had glimmers of greatness followed by moments of complete mental meltdown. It's frustrating to watch a guy like Matic who rarely has a bad game play next to very inconsistant pivot partners.

For 2 years now we've been a team that shows up for big games and the goes and loses to a QPR or Palace, bottom to mid table teams. Alot of the players we've signed have come from leagues where you only have to show up to beat the mid-bottom table teams. And no manager we've had has been able to get our guys to shred those teams like we've seen from the likes of City and Pool. I think it's a team mentality. There's no player on our team who's been able unlock 10 men in the box. Not even Hazard has done this.

BTW the same 3 guys passing the ball around the front of the box is really starting to annoy me. We have the numbers forward to spread the defense and we still try to take direct shots more than we attack and cross from the wing. Against their whole team! It's our biggest deficiency in attack. Once their defense has that many men back we should be attacking only from outside until they spread out to defend it. Then you attack the middle.
Can you be banned for sarcasm? because Mourinho is about be banned so hard lol. Thankfully the season is already pretty much over for us.
+2
Yea sarcasm is like an offensive gesture to the FA. He even used sarcasm to the boss of all PL referees lol.

8 game ban tbf
Players can get carded for sarcastically applauding the ref so I guess it is technically possible for Jose to be reprimanded. I don't think he'll get punished though, it wasn't over the top sarcastic even though everyone knows he was being sarcastic.

#PrayforMourinho

i'm guessing 3-5 game touchline ban and fine
