    You can be disappointed

    …..but no-one should be annoyed with that. 3 goals in the last 11 minutes tells you absolutely everything you need to know.
    When was the last time you saw a top side with only GKs, kids and has-beens on the bench for 4 matches in 2 weeks?

    I will say, it may be time to get rid of the injury prone. We cannot affrod to carry the likes of Wilson anymore. Maybe even Willock!

    Christ, I am tempted to label Isak as inury prone.

    If i had as much time off work as these guys i would have lost my job.

    Not annoyed at all.

    Disappointed and flat but this was coming.

    They fed off the energy of the crowd against Man U but this was a game too far and no surprise to anyone.

    My worry is that, with only 3 days until Spurs, they're going to be even more knackered and Spurs relentless attacking will cause mistakes in tired legs as happened today.

    Mind you Spuds have a big injury list too, nowhere as bad as ours, but they have just lost a 1-0 lead to West Ham, going down 1-2.

    You could see this coming if we didn't get the first goal. For 3/4 of the game we played the more classy football, they had their chances but were scrappy and we made most of the proper chances.

    But for the last 1/4 of the game the fatigue set in and we didn't have the legs to keep up with them.

    We could do with another international break! Roll on January, we desperately need to strengthen, this team have worked wonders but can only do so much. Play the kids against spurs and concentrate on the C L game, that’s what I would do, swe can make up the premier league points once we have players back plus new signings,but we only have one shot at qualifying from the group. Imo that’s more important NOW.

    I’m starting to agree with this. We might be forced to ‘throw’ a game through necessity. Normally I would never suggest this but the injury situation is a feckin joke now.
    On top of that we have the competition draws we’ve had this season - even the mackems now which could’ve been a chance to rest a lot of players. With it being them then forget that.
    Chelski? It’s the Carabao cup. Milan? No way.
    That basically leaves Spurs.

    I can genuinely see us go on an amazing winning streak in the new year when we get players back… and still believe we can be too 6, but we can’t let ourselves get too far behind through December.

    Absolutely gutted with the result, more with the games ahead in mind… but not annoyed.

    Everton with their siege mentality now - best thing for their motivation has been that points deduction
