- AVB – coat on a shoogly nail? ( Look away if waiting on the result. )
What he said – its like folk expect a miracle turnaround from simply sacking the manager
He needs time as do the new platers tbh – wenger has won nothing for 9 years for example and got thumped at the weekend should he go as well?
Who do you think could have stopped Suarez today just out of interest?
You may wish to edit the title as well in case someone has not seen the result and they are trying to avoid itPosted 4 years agopingu66Member
He was found out at Chelsea, he is getting found out again. I am all for giving someone time but getting an absolute drubbing when you meet any quality is inexcusable. OK Suarez was good today and they did try to stop him with a Bruce Lee style attack.

On a more important note, I have yet again **** up my fantasy football team, by having Ageuro instead of Suarez as captain, these last few weeks have been very costly. This week especially I thought he might struggle, with Gerrard missing, having to carry the team all by himself. But no another great performance from Suarez and possibly Liverpool’s best team performance of the season.
Damm you Liverpool and Suarez! ***shakes fist in the air***Posted 4 years agoMSPSubscriber
I am tipping Rooney for the next few weeks
You say that as a joke, but it does appear that any half decent performance from a Utd player gets them bonus points, and usually that especially applies to Rooney. Somehow Utd have received as a team more bonus points this weekend than either Liverpool or City.Posted 4 years agoCaptJonMember
after the transfer window shut the DoF (can’t remember his name) was getting praised heaped on him for signing so many players, but now it turns out some aren’t right for the team it is all AVB’s fault.
I hope he stays, but Spurs aren’t exactly loyal to managers, and i hope they finish outside the top 6.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
awesome, one more to faulter in Newcastles way 🙂 Sticking with Pardew is paying off.
In the end AVB needed time like all the other managers, Man U are whinging but having seen the old guard move on and never get properly replaced it’s time for a rebuild.
In the end of the day getting a 2-2 draw sounds better than some have managed and not going to Anfield until the last day of the season when Suarez will be banned again sounds a lot better.Posted 4 years agowinston_dogMember
That is just ridiculous. I thought they had made their best start to a PL season?
A couple of shocking results don’t make a season.
Give someone £100 million to spend and then sack him a 1/3 of the way through the season!
Hopefully, things will get worse and they will free a top 4 space up for the Toon!Posted 4 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
He didn’t seem able to manage the media very well – built pressure on himself that could have been avoided (plus he made a tit of himself with that Lloris concussion incident).
Team’s playing poorly, tactics v questionable – not the time to take on the media. Well maybe if you’re Alex Ferguson it is, but AVB just didn’t have the capital to behave like that.Posted 4 years ago
but lack of stability rarely breeds success
This is very true, and that’s why I disagreed so much with the Redknapp sacking. I know there was the court case and the England speculation, but they had been resolved and Spurs should have renewed his contract to bring in that much needed stability.
Spurs have suffered their biggest away and home losses for many years, good teams are playing through them, and much of that comes down to AVB’s managerial shortcomings (which had already been demonstrated at Chelsea). He’s turned a fairly decent team into a pretty mediocre one (Levy and Baldini also share some blame). I wish him well but I don’t think he has what it takes to succeed at the top level (the Porto side he managed had been largely built by the Porto director of football).
Ultimately I blame Levy (and Joe Lewis) for the situation, as they should have kept Redknapp.Posted 4 years ago
And you really think Harry would come back with the current board of directors in place?
Well put it another way, would you?
Slightly off-topic, but I also think Liverpool should flog Gerrard if they want to progress. They are a better team without him.
Stevie G’s days are numbered, don’t you think?Posted 4 years agojimsterMember
Can’t see why the board couldn’t wait until the end of the season. Yes we’ve suffered some big defeats, can remember when Christian Gross took over, we got stuffed 6-1 at home by Chelsea, 4-0 at Coventry – fortunately he was given time and turned things around.
They’re still in Europe, more than Liverpool. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
