Tammy is ridiculously rubbish at game management.

And game management is not the only thing he and our other young players are rubbish at. His attempt at volleying tonight went neck and neck with that of Mason Mount against City for the worst technique of the season. 

Our young players seem to have all stopped improving. Some of them are piling on baby fat. The only thing growing is their wage demand.

Someone has to tell these kids; to play for a top club,  at 18, you should be standing out in several aspects of your game, and not just locally but in the continent. That is the level of the competition. Quite honestly, you have to be exceptional, and even that might not be enough.

I'm not comparing Lampard to Sarri

Losing hazard doesn't explain the big increase in goals conceded.

 

Well you say that Paul but Eden made other teams think twice before attacking us knowing any space left and he would tear them a new one.

Now he's gone that factor changes teams perception of how to approach us.

Anyway I hope we can try to move forward and improve.

Kurt's not the prettiest on the ball but that guy tries to be a defender unlike Rudiger and Christiansen.

Zaha is a really good player. He was bright throughout the game. Can't believe he's wasted the best part of his career at Palace. Arsenal made a huge mistake not getting him and picking up Pepe instead.

I don’t know what’s happened to Christiansen. I remember a game a few years back against Man City when he was outstanding and Guardiola actually went up to him on the pitch afterwards to congratulate him on how good he was. He had all the attributes. Now he just looks a bit lightweight. Physically and mentally.

That's not true. Mount rightfully got MOTM against Watford and was very good again today. Certainly he is still improving.

Reece James has worked himself back into the team and should have had 2 assists today.

Pulisic has come out of the lockdown a more effective player.

Tammy Abraham has admittedly hit a bit of a bump but that's something that should be expected. Marcus Rashford for instance has been average for 90% of this season. Martial was poor for 90% of the current season. Dan James has slipped out of the United team. Foden has sparkled intermittently. Maddison and Grealish are hardly consistent either.

I think you are very harsh on these guys. Lampard, by contrast, has worked WITH them and dealt with all their ups and downs thus far. Obviously things will be tougher next year with the added competition to the squad but Lampard does seem to be figuring things out quickly as they come.

True but our goal scored looks pants compared to teams around us. 

We’ve scored 63. “Only” 9 less than Liverpool and one less than Leicester. We’ve scored 7 more than United, 11 more than Tottenham. 13 more than Arsenal and 18 more than Wolves. 

City has scored 81.

Is he? 

4 League goals all season

One wonder strike isn't enough. Hugely hit and miss.

He will not stay there if he keep making school boy errors, it was obvious that palace identified him as a week link. He was beaten and out muscled by van arnault and Co far to often

I'm not sure that Reece James has worked himself back into the team as much as Alonso and Emerson have worked their way out of it, to be fair.
