Sixer’s Sevens: Stoke City 2-0 SAFC. Or Sixer’s Three: ‘down by Christmas’

Jake: 'rock bottom'
Jake: ‘rock bottom’

Monsieur Salut writes: I had a good stream and watched a poor Stoke side made to look efficient by as inept a display as I can recall (well at least since the last inept display). Pete Sixsmith had a tougher day, up early to travel to the Potteries and see yet another abysmal performance which, he said as the last seconds of stoppage time ticked away, suggested a team that will be adrift without a hope at the bottom come Christmas …

  1. If we’d had a long serving manager who’d ran out of ideas it would be time for a change . Injury’s aside , Moye’s transfer buisness has rendered a half decent team unfit for purpose , had he even watched our team before signing on ? Considering he’s a good mate’s with Allardyce , how could he have got it so spectacularly wrong ? No one could rescue us this season and changing our manager yet again would make us an even bigger laughing stock than we already are . I don’t have an answer and more worryingly those in charge don’t seem to have a clue .

  2. I feel much the same. Before the match, I thought anyone predicting us to beat the drop was being highly optimistic. In light of this latest debacle, such an outlook is nothing short of delusional.

  3. My 3 tickets for Southampton arrived just as the second goal went in. I was sorely tempted to run after the postie and tell him he’d got the address wrong. Thank God West Ham was sold out.
