I’m not one for sacking managers quickly. I like to see managers given the opportunity to build a team. It hasn’t been our style and I want to believe it can work under Ronald Koeman. That said, the pressure is on, and failure to beat Arsenal, a Carabao Cup exit at Chelsea, and defeat at Leicester City would pretty much make his position untenable.
The talk on everyone’s lips after the game of course was, should Ronald Koeman be sacked. It’s safe to say, most of the supporters seem to think so. Personally, I’m pretty neutral.
The Europa League campaign doesn’t have to be doom and gloom just yet but we are certainly doing it the hard way.
Win we did. It still wasn't especially pretty up until the winning goal just five minutes later, but we persevered
With four clean sheets in four games, it’s hard to complain. I’ll be interested to see where we stand in a month’s time.
With the fixtures upcoming, I was simply relieved to be coming away with the three points, our first opening day win for five years
Luckily we didn't book our trip to the Netherlands for Everton's game-that-wasn't against Groningen and so, when the game against Genk was announced, Gaz and I were able to book some flights to Brussels Charleroi.
