JT deserves plenty of criticism ......and i'm not someone who over reacts to poor results but the players should be getting more flak than JT.......Yes the formation is a mess but but no formation would mask the fact that the players are massively under performing .....the likes of Brooks and Kelly are an embarrassment .....how on earth Kelly gets picked ahead of Rico only JT knows....a CB trying to head the ball clear with his eye shut ffs!........i'm not calling for Jt''s head but he's got to realise we can't go on like this......drop the players who are taking the piss because he'll be the one who will pay the price.....the next game will be crucial....if he lets those players get away with that then he really isn't the man for the job.

If Brooks was making his debut for Chelsea tonight (after his £50m transfer) I guarantee he would have been MOM no question. So why do we play him when he has zero interest in doing so?
He wouldn't get near the Chelsea team......in fact he wouldn't get near any PL team ....he's been piss poor since his first season with us .....his 'player of the month award this season was laughable tbf.

Pretty much exactly what I said to my Dad. Hard to lay too much of the blame for these results at JT’s door when you see how poor some talented players are repeatedly performing. He, as we also do, has a right to expect more from this squad of highly paid “professionals”. The players need to put in a professional 90 minute performance. If they do that and we still lose, then I would be turning to JT for answers. But we are not there yet IMO !

I think we're missing some on field leadership......the majority of our payers are way too passive.....i think thats the main difference between this crop of players and the 14/15 team......yet look at the criticism Stan got for getting upset at players like Kelly underperforming.

The manager sets the team up and decides tactics. He is currently getting it abysmally wrong. The players are underperforming because of his leadership and lack of authority. It can’t go on.
These players underperformed for Eddie last season and now they are doing the same for JT......Tactics have nothing to do with fact that Brooks falls over anytime he touches the ball or that Kelly tries to head a corner clear with his eyes shut.

So what are those two players doing on the pitch. Who picks the team?

Seems as if the players don't think that the tactics are right so they prove they aren't, in the game.
Pick Rico as LB next time.
When Brooks went off I thought at least we'll have 11 men on the pitch again. What's going on Dave?

The most worrying thing player wise is the form of Brooks, it is genuinely laughable how bad he is at the moment. He seems to have lost the ability to even control the ball and make a basic pass.
My worry is that it's not a period of poor form anymore......he's been bang average since he damaged his ankle against Chelsea......he came back after lockdown playing like this ......this is as good as he is now.
