Surely we have to of learned our lessons from the last 2yrs but you wouldn't of thought so watching this game.Next up Liverpool boy do we need to improve on this to have any hope of a result.as soon as l saw Stephens my stomach sunk and l wanted to throw up, really though no one covered themselves with anything more than mediocre.
Surely this has to get better as this was the first game but it looked like we could be in for long season,hope not Cory.

Everyone knew there was one position we needed to get better - and we simply didn't, bar from a "one for the future" loan on deadline day. And that DM spot was the second to improve, cause in romeu and Hojbjerg we've only got two of tjose (not a single defender in the world wants to be shielded by JWP). One was ill and well...
I'm a big fan of Hasenhüttl, but there was a lot wrong that last window and today. Nobody here needs djenepo now, let's be honest. It's 12-14 Mio. for someone "nice to have". Let's buy him if you have everything else sorted and got money left to spend. Butto buy him state that from now on you have to sell and getting a CD depends on departures, means there are some people making decisions, who shouldn't make them.
And so there obviously was no money left for players we all are crying for since years now. That transfer window was Shit. End of.
To talk about today, to play Stephens, just because Yoshida may be off in the next weeks, is Shit decision making. You have to play the best that are available to you at any time. Do the best for the club. Of course nobody will buy Stephens (his contract has to make every proper footballer laugh), but to play him just because of that?? He didn't really make it in L1, even RH, who came here later, should have figured that out by now.
If Hojbjerg can sit, then he can play. He's that far above the rest (which tells you something).
JWP a captain? If a player like that would ever have captained my team, I would have laughed the whole day and lost 0:3 by purpose. Oh. You need vocal player there. Someone who never gives up. Stephens would have been about 50 times better as captain,as you need someone with an unbelievable fighting spirit or someone who is just gifted.
Gunn was not without fault too, he could have done better with the first and the third. McCarthy is still here. It didn't work to get him out. So please play the better goalie, which unfortunately isn't Gunn. But this was the smaller issue today, I think...

Only positive is Che didn't get sent off for that clodhopper challenge.
Looked evenly matched but then Vestergaard drops a bol0k and it all goes pear shaped. Hey ho, we march on!

He has to loose his place because of being heavily involved in all 3 goals.
First goal he misjudged his position when trying to clear a long ball with his head, and Barnes was one on one with Gunn.
Second goal he was at least 2 yards away from the man he should have marked, Barnes, and a cross came in for Barnes to volley home.
Third goal he cleared a cross very weakly with his head and the ball went towards Bertrand who didn´t expect to get the ball, and from, what I saw it seemed Bertie didn´t have time and balance to fight wholeheartedly for the ball and he was perhaps fouled in the duel for it. Gudmondsen, or whatever his name is, took the ball and ran into the box with it and finished into the far corner. Vestergaard should have run back faster and tackled Gudmondsen. Apparently VAR didn´t think Bertrand was fouled.
