I only watched the first 50 mins and it looked as though we would go to win, comfortably!
I get home and see we got a draw!
It appears we are only able to play for 45mins of any game! this is become an irritating habit!
From the first half it looked like we were in second gear and could up our performance at any time.
What happened in the second half? Nothing was that the problem?
looked like same old same old, 1-0 up and cruising, thought the game was won, played like they couldn't be bothered. Got their just reward!!!!
Then AVB comes out and says FATIQUE was the problem, I am at a loss for words but if they are knackered after 8 games into the season then god help us!!!!!!!
Maybe the rumours about too much training are true. The players are getting too much and they can't manage to play for 90 minutes!!
Really disappointed wth the performance. Watched the Pool game after, what a difference in approach, passion, pace, everything about their game. Yes they lost but at least they competed and looked like they wanted to win it. Well done to them can't say the same for our players.

I think it showed how much we miss Modric. He set the tempo of our play by his quick bursts and movement. Dembele is vey good at going pass player's, but it's done at a different pace, and would be more suited playing in VdV role just behind the striker's, IMO, I'm hoping we try for Moutino again in Jan, or someone simular who can dictate play from deep MF. I wonder if the negative exposure the Europa League get's in this country has got into the minds of some player's, and they think it doesnt matter that much. The sooner they make the EL winner's a CL spot, the better.
DE-JA-VU Feeling we seemed to play alot like that last season great in first half's never bothered coming out for the second quite worrying really.
Lloris looks like he needs more games under his belt made a couple of errors didnt have a whole lot to do really either way im not to bothered about Europa Prem is the most important.
