Hes not Score that second, from the best pass of the game, its game over We stroll the second half and everybody raves about thomasson

Harsh that, he’s Come in for Tutte and he’s completely different player, like to see Thomason in with Tutte behind him.

I like eyre, and he knows his stuff

He just takes over and it does start to get a bit much

His dad used to be second comm on manc, years back

Proper footballing family the Eyres, they really know their stuff in terms of players at all levels.  They could both have knowledgeable discussions on teams from any division down to NW Counties.  I read the autobiography A Breath Of Fred Eyre about 30 years ago, great humour and self deprecating.  Loved Fred's enthusiasm and he's passed it onto his slightly more dour/staid son.

He looks pissed off, and he sounds fed up of saying the same thing post-match.

He's not getting through to these players.

Fed up of saying the same things.

Maybe he’s not doing his job then?

Arguably its not getting through to Evatt that this current squad is suited to a flat back 4 not a 3.  If he's frustrated at the players making the same mistakes, they aren't the only one's.

Fair point, but he's the manager and it's up to him to get the players to adapt, if he can't, he either gets the players in who can or he changes his way of playing/formation.

Again it's a fair point, and imo his way of playing the game is correct. You can still change formation and play expansive football, perhaps he thinks it's a bit early for that yet. 

Let's get to January and bring in some astute boys, not quantity but quality.

Tutte runs the show, Tutte takes the pressure off the defence, Tutte constantly shows for the ball, Tutte plays forward passes, Tutte makes the midfield seem far more balanced.

Take him out and suddenly there is a massive fucking gap through the middle of our team (Thomason can play a pass but he doesn’t have positional sense yet) and it’s no surprise the defence look shit again, Sarcevic is having to try to play as a defensive midfielder, which he’s not doing a bad job at but it’s far from his natural game, and generally the rest of the team look worse!

We need Tutte back ASAP, and until then there is no perfect answer. I’d have White in there personally, or even Jones, with Mascoll in at wing back but nothing is a good option.

What is clear to me, and it won’t be a surprise to anyone that was following the thread during the game, is that Crawford needs to fuck off right now. He might have talent, and we might have seen what he can do, but he is a half arsed twat that plays like he’s De Bruyne but fails at almost everything. He’s got to go and Sarcevic has to be put into his best position - if that means White and Jones into centre mid until Tutte is back then so be it, I don’t like the sound of it but I’m convinced that our best player needs to be playing in his best position.

Proper pissed me off today, I thought we’d get a result, and the first 40 mins showed that we should have done, but once again we caused our own downfall and had no backbone to turn it around.

A bit like when England had Gerrard and Lampard both wanting the same role, you build your team around your best players playing in their best position.

For me, our best attacking midfielder is Sarce. He plays that role for me, Crawford needs benching. I wouldn’t fuck him off but I would drop him. Tutte in the Sarce role and sign a destroyer. Surely defensive cloggers who can pass a bit are available at this level?

It's difficult to believe that a guy unwanted by Morecambe, recruuted late by us and unable to put in a full 90 until very recently, is the person the whole thing depends upon.

Crawford is a concern. We know he cannpkay. He played well in a higher league last season. Has he not really recovered from his injury ?

He certainly needs a rest.

What would we give for a Carl Henry type right now.

Fairly sure it was Crawford who put in a half hearted tackle at our right back position,  missed the tackle so just walked away up the pitch allowing the walsall guy to cross unheeded

Crawford was one arrowed, it was a foul all day, shocking refereeing.

First 40 in control, then foul or not, shouldn’t let the lad cross to equalise

 

I dunno how you think we stop him crossing it

Its a shocking (non) decision

Fred?

I like Eyre, he speaks well and knows his stuff... but at times feels like he's watching the game through massively BWFC tinted glasses. Despite him saying the exact opposite I never thought at any point we were in complete control of the game today.

He was ready to jump over the fence and take the Walsall bench on in IEs defence. 
 

I saw Fred a few times after dinner speaking. Usually with an ex United backroom bloke who’s name I can’t recall. (Fred was with him, not me) Very entertaining at times (Fred, not me).

Yes. Pragmatism needed. Doesn’t mean you can't adhere to your footballing principles, but as he often says, you have to scrap a bit too and earn the right to start knocking it around.
