what to say about this game. i sat in the North Bank and witnessed some of the worst football since the "Hoddle days". As a team we sat back for 80 minutes and allowed the Swans to make us look stupid. they passed around us like we were part of a training ground exercise. Players not only looked completely uninterested but also totally lacking in any clue about how to play against the Swansea team. The defence was shambollic, SEB looked way off match fitness and to be honest.....JOH hasn't had a decent game since winning himself a contract. The chorus of boo's that met the substitutes was unfortunate but understandable. ade and Miljas should have started and Hunt is surely a better option than Jarvis who is way below form. The only bright spark in the defence is Ward which is worrying considering he is a striker. The fact that the fans were shouting for Craddock must surely send a message to MM that the defence is all over the place, Arguably worse than last season. That is a real concern considering the great expectation that was placed our new Captain who in my opinion as failed massively to convince me that he was the Bargain compared to Scott Dann. Is this evidence that MM has lost the dressing room? or is it a case that the players were so scared to lose that they couldn't focus on winning. I missed the 2 goals as I had made a decision to leave early but to be honest we didn't deserve a goal let alone a point. For me all the goals did was paper over the cracks of what was a horrible game. "yor getting sacked in the morning" was pprobably not welcome to Micks ears but to be fair, if he doesn't get a grip of his team soon it will be inevitable. I find it hard to take because I like Mick and appreciate what he has done for this club but more of the same will see us relegated by Christmas. We need to sort this out now or i will be sitting in a top notch Championship Stadium. My heart sinks at the thought :(

Oh dear, Rustmonkey, I share your feelings. Moreover, having just watched MC demolish MU 6-1, there's worse to come. Even if the loss of Evans explains the scale of the defeat, it doesn't diminish the brilliance of MC. They were awesome. As their players were knocking the ball effortlessly around the pitch, it made me compare their skills with those possessed by our own players. We're in for a hiding on Saturday ... and probably on Wednesday too but that's of secondary importance. Our only hope is that MC become complacent, which is quite likely, given the opinion that Mancini must have formed of us on his visit yesterday. I shudder to think how our defence will fare against such an irresistible force. At least, the Wednesday match gives us an opportunity to assess the form of fringe members of the squad, players who surely can do no worse than many of those in the first eleven. And what about changing the tactics and set-up, MM?
