Just wondering,

Does the performance last night pleae some fans even tjough we lost?

We have had a results vs performance debate on here tine after tine and i wonder, IF we played all 90 mins like we did the first 45 but still lost 3-0, is that a hood result in some peoples opinions?

Agree2 Disagree1

How about we played well and won games like every other top team?

First 45 was a refreshing change, lots of good energy. Still minimal chance creation though. We still didn't commit men forward in numbers and the Lukaku golden opportunity was gifted by Rose - not from our creativity which was non-existent.

That said I liked several performances (I posted this last night but it didn't go up for some reason) . Second half we reverted to type and Spurs took their chance. We were fortunate to beat Leicester, deserved a beating by Brighton and over the 90mins deserved to lose to Spurs, although 3-0 flattered them.

Just wondering about the coaching and instructions. Games was in the balance at half time with us looking like we could win, then it just all seemed to stop. Shaw, Lingard and the energy of Fred were bonuses. First half I thought we might be turning a corner for the first time in a long time, alas it was only fleeting.

It was good to see some high pressing from the team. But it all looked very new to them as they had no idea what to do next. We couldn't put 2 passes together so it's not anything new in terms style. The high pressing with no cover up and very little tactical knowledge looked like a disaster waiting to happen. I think it's better that Jose sticks to his style and not succumb to the pressure from fans. He and our players seem clueless as to how this type of football works.

Agree jred BUT the debate that has split the posters on here was to choose one of performance or results.

I firmly sit on the results side and some posters sit on the performance side. I want to know if the performance half of this site are happy with last night?

28 Aug 2018 10:10:36
Beast, u summed that up bang on. There was a definite change at half time but unsure why.

28 Aug 2018 10:17:21
I firmly sit on the at well and won side .
Don't understand why it has to be one or the other.

28 Aug 2018 10:21:25
Nobody is going to take 3-0 defeats at home over results. Big teams who play well don't get beat 3-0 at home.

28 Aug 2018 10:42:18
Didnt u see these debates jred? They were done to death.

It was a hypothetical question, which do fans priotitise.

Of course we all pick both, absolutely obvious. But that's not what was asked and the opionions fell 50/ 50 on each side.

So i just wanted to know if if certain posters are happy with last night.

But you are making a comparison based on flawed information. Last night was not a great performance, it was better but we were playing a better team so we got punished.

If we had played with the same energy against Brighton we would have been out of sight by half time. Spurs competed and then kicked on, we couldn't.

This loss didn't hurt as much as Brighton did, so I hope that answers your question.

I would be very surprised if people would like to see us get beat 3.0 .

We played well first half and it was 0.0
Would you rather it be 0.0 playing well and attacking or 0.0 with 10 men behind the ball .

Second half as a team we were poor so we got beat .

28 Aug 2018 11:42:19
Ezrs, to answer your question anyone would have taken a performance where we control the game, have more shots on target with their goalkeeper having the game of his life and us still losing 3-0. But that didn't happen. I don't know why people are trying to hype such a crap performance.

28 Aug 2018 12:12:42
I think it's a fair question but it's based on the assumption of play more attacking and we lose and play dour and we win . We have lost to spurs being a little more offensive but we lost to Brighton without attacking much until we trailed .
If you asked the same question after Brighton or Seville or whoever games then the supporters of the duznt matter how would probably feel similar to those advocating being more attacking now .
I'm guessing we would all like the same thing improved results and then style .
