    I bet Eddie Howe's drinking wheatgrass and sunning himself at some wellness retreat in the South of France right now, waiting for the next stress-free job with no expectations to roll along.

    I get that people are going to complain when we lose or concede loads and when we lose from a winning position like against Betis, but I don’t want him to change how he has us playing it’s so enjoyable to watch us again.

    What he needs is more time to continue getting the team into his system, how well we are playing after such a short period has surprised me. I also think when we sign more players in January it’ll all come together more.

    What worries me is that Ange still doesn’t have any of his own back room staff, I don’t believe we’ve replaced Jack naylor? Sport science guy. We definitely haven’t brought in any coaches or assistants and the structure of the club hasn’t changed at all… actually got worse as we’ve lost McKay but I’ll keep that for another chat. We have Gordon Strachan back at the club and both of his sons, and we haven’t changed any of the recruitment structure or got a DOF in as well.

    We need the structure in place to get the most out of Ange and give him the best support possible.

    My concern with Ange is the following: is he going to stubbornly stick to plan A no matter what?

    So because our defence is poor we should leave them even more exposed?

    No buying that. I like/love even how we're playing overall but at 2 nil, just try and hold what we have til half time..

    There has to be some kind of fallback system in place or touch of flexibility or we will continue to get beat by better side's. We'll throw away leads against them everytime if we don't tighten up a bit..

    I’m not too bothered if all the back room staff stay and Ange just adds to it, as long as it’s his decision. If he thinks Kennedy, Strachan and Woods all bring good value, then keep them. But he needs his own people in and he needs more staff.

    I wonder how big our management team actually is? Sure it can’t just be Ange, Kennedy, Strachan and Woods? That’s what is on the website but that is such a small management squad.

    He has similarities to Rodgers although Rodgers was far better at changing a game from the bench granted with a better squad. Both their downfalls will be not switching it up against the better sides in Europe

    Away form and the ease with which we are bullied and can be countered is concerning.

    Three tough away grounds, 0 points.

    We're already worse off in the league than we were last year.

    I don't blame him much tbh

    He's inherited a mess and hasn't really been given the tools to change things.

    A typically unambitious transfer window where more came in than went out, working with staff that aren't his, and a resignation of the CEO.

    The same people who stifled Rodgers are still in place.

    While getting rid of Lennon was welcome, the carnage caused by that inexplicable self-harming decision is so vast, that I appreciate it was always going to be difficult to get things in order so quickly. Nonetheless there hasn't really been any enthusiasm to change things.

    Well be 7-9 points behind the Klan by the time we next meet. They could effectively end our season at Christmas for the 2nd year running. That's a grim prospect.
