Yeah, they are poor but lucky.

We'll still win this.

This in a nutshell. Time to put the hype behind us along with any defeats we suffer. Survival first, quality will come.

Best hope we can switch on the magic in the second half because if we can get a point here it'll be vital.

With a defence like ours this stay in the PL will be brief, these are the games we must be picking up points in.

Very much so. The quality gap is real. Thankfully it's more real for other teams aside from us.

As I understand, Bamford's goal was called offside because of his outstretched arm. While the arm can't play the ball because it would be a handball. How can an arm possibly be called for offside? Chest or head, yes, but the arm?
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs

Not going to be our day.

The offside was a farce.

The og was very unlucky but really poor from Meslier (could have done better on the 1st also).

We arent handling Eze at all, far to open and easy for him to drive through the middle, Zaha vs Ayling is a mismatch.

Unlucky but to many injuries imo, Klich is basically a one man midfield, Harrison and Codta not doing enough.

I think the 1st goal kills us, we are to easily picked off when teams can just sit back.

no its different! that is interpretation and the referee can use discretion. the referee cannot use discretion here, its either offside or not.

Can your hand be offside,if so thats a new one. Thought we were the better side can't do anything about the first two, meslier should save the third to be honest.

Players can't call for the ball now. Insanity.

Of course, he's a massive step up in quality. I don't understand why he's in the Spain squad? What happens if his roommate tests positive?

Video Assisted Referee.

The ref got it right and the VAR overruled him.

How come sometimes they call him to look at the incident and other times dont?

Costa looks out of nick to me.

I’d consider benching him for a bit, give Raphinha a run of games.

No need to panic, we're a long way above the bottom 3. Once we get our players back, we will improve massively both on the pitch and bench.
