jesperjaap's latest activity

  • Manager and coaching - Coachin gis easily replaced bu tmanager timing again looks off. Klopp and Nagelsmann both looked the perfect appointment at times and we failed, now Conte isnt the right fit, is Zidane even interested in the...
  • Defended Bissaka and been a fan since he broke through at Palace. I thought he mad good strides last season offensivley and his positioning neds improving most. He has gone backwards again this season, Im now finidng myself disagreeing with many...
  • First paragraph, so true
  • Yes I agree with him on not going for a quickfire manager and my concern is the right manager isnt available. But it isnt just this season, we may have finished second but the first three months we were awful and the last three we stumbled over...
  • Yes and those people were seriously blinded by three big glamour signings when we still dont have a single quality central midfielder consistently. A lot of people were concerned we didnt sign anybody in that position. We have been poor almost...
  • I am really not surprised at all. All season so far, especially since Varane was injured....I have considered so far, this is the WORST side in my forty years of supporting the club without the ball. Individually there are players in key areas...
  • What utter shite. Firstly lets not forget that we have a squad of well over 30players. I think all but the most loyal fan to the players could name up to ten players in thsi squad there is a good argument to sell even if they wouldnt want to...
  • Yes of course wanted a right winger and personally Greenwood moved up front which Ronaldo changed. Of course these are good signings, my point was simply that those two signings of quality didnt improve our first eleven anywhere significantly as...
  • jesperjaap replied to the thread Post match vs Atalanta.
    Agree and disagree on what you say here. Yes totally agree its paperin gover huge cracks that result.....but 20/30mins every game we actually do often....its usually the first 10-15mins and another similar spell when we go a goal down. We have...
  • jesperjaap replied to the thread Post match vs Atalanta.
    This thread just shows how results driven analysis is. Of coruse just like Villareal it was exciting and a fairytale ending....but lets be honest, I have supported this club for over forty years and without the ball, this side is like ROn...
  • The answer isntJUST a new manager. A lot of these players have also failed under Mourinho and even Van Gaal and some even Moyes. We have a lot of players who give the ball away consistently and that even includes some of our more talented...
  • Very good questions, I wasnt excited about us signing him at the time. Couldnt get the hype fans were making about us signing him. For me I thought he woul dbe a squad player, he is barely that. This is the summer we wre massivley linked with...
  • On paper maybe. All excellent players of course, but only Varane was positionally a priority position. Lots of fans and pundits alike were crying out for a central midfielder in the summer, I felt and still think we need two (maybe even three...
  • jesperjaap replied to the thread Post match vs Leicester City.
    Well for me there are four main problems, we have seen them week in week out: 1) Our failure to strengthen the midfield this summer. People talking about lack of finances are talking hogwash for me in our failure there. Behind a centre back it...
  • Pogba the player is simply a myth. There are a few reasons Ole will get fired, the biggest mistake he made thi ssummer fo rme was not getting shot of Pogba and investing in two new central midfielders. Despite the excellent signings we made this...
