    Default Burnley 3-0 Saints - Reactions

    F**king dog sh*t!

    Only saving grace I can think of is that it was a p*ssing wet gale up North. Not an excuse but exactly the kind of game we regularly f**k up anyway. I'd ditch 3 at the back, what's the point in having 3 crap defenders stood ball watching? Might as well fight for it in midfield.

    awful but not unexpected

    we are doing nothing but weaken the squad.
    We start the season with the same awful defence, despite the last two windows to bring in quality.
    we have brought in a rookie lad who will probably lucky to play 15 league games this season.

    Burnley were crap and won fairly comfortably, bar a couple of long range shots in the 1st half.

    one thing is for sure, we will not be finishing top 10, despite what the clappers say

    you do realise our new CB is 20 years old and has been a bit-part player?

    Utterly pathetic defensively, utterly predictable. As bad as Stephens is, Vestergaard is as **** as well. I hope Danso is decent.

    Awful performance, deservedly smashed by a poor side. We created nothing in that second half.

    Gunn should have done a lot better for that first goal, **** poor from him and JV - Who is a very poor CB as he proved time and time again last season.

    If Burnley can ease past us with 3 goals then I wonder how a 2nd gear Liverpool will do against that backline next weekend.

    Terrible start. Against a really poor Burnley side too. Just have to learn from it and hope it's a case of getting it out the way and moving on quick. We can't keep playing Stephens, I've no idea what Ings offers, so it's time for Ralph to find his best team. Still think it'll be 4222 or we'll struggle to score goals.

    Mostly though it's just sad to see batman so delighted on day 1.

    Think that makes it 6 official games without a win? It is early days but we limped to safety last season and I don't see any difference in that performance.
    We lack any midfield presence so creating attacks is difficult. The whole 5 at the back thing needs to end now. It doesn't work.

    Nothing seems to have changed. Errors at the back and impotent in the final third. Our lads just didn't seem to fancy a wet & windy Turf Moor either. Doesn't bode well.

    Yep we can use that battling DM we signed in the summer that we desperately needed to protect our abject CB's...oh...

    He played consistently the second half of last season. And no mention of our captain and best (maybe second after redmond) player being back? I know you want to have a moan but it's not relegation yet!

    **** poor all round! Surely RH knew we couldn't play our usual style in todays conditions against a strong physical Burnley side! We should have sorted out our defence before we even considered other positions it was glaringly obvious!

    Decent enough first half, v poor second half. First game of the season so obviously too early to judge if this is a sign of things to come or just a blip, although that won't stop the usual SWF write-the-season-off-after-one-game brigade of course...

    Very clear this will be another difficult season, with a lot of players who are unproven at this level.

    Whilst this is just a start, with our fixtures to November looking very tough, its hard to see anything other than being in the bottom 6 for at least the first third of the season.

    A lot resting on Danso.

    Lmfao. Didn’t see that coming? If you didn’t, you’re an idiot.

    Apparently a good window to most on here.

    And we’ll be comfortably mid table. Apparently.

    Poor Ralph is flogging a dead horse at this sh1tshow of a football club.

    He will overachieve with what’s he’s got and we’ll pick up some results here and there but he’ll be as frustrated as most reasonable fans about not being able or allowed to take this team further.

    Enjoy him while you can.

    Sounded awful.

    Need to ditch the 3 at the back. I'd rather have two crap defenders playing than 3, although we have Danso to come in and we can only hope he's decent. Ings will have his uses on occasion but Hasenhuttl wants to play with pace and he doesn't have much. My favourite formation in the last few years was the 4-2-3-1 we used to play under Pochettino and I think it suits our personnel. We could field a team like:

    Gunn, Valery, Danso, Yoshida, Bertrand, Romeu, Hojbjerg, JWP, Boufal, Redmond, Adams.

    Pace and creativity.

    It can only get better, right? Liverpool next, then Brighton who won enthusiastically today, then United. (Deep breath...)

    I thought last season had ended in May, missed chances and defensive mistakes. Oh well, in Ralph we trust.

    Billy Sharp scored for Sheffield Utd. Could to with a finisher like that, our boys get into the final third and then panic. Panicky defence and a light midfield adds up to another hugely frustrating day at the office. When will we learn.

    I like Redmond but boy does he make some poor decisions, hold on way too long and then passes when a shooting chance is on. Ings terrible, Gunn had a poor game too, first one through his legs.

    I admire your optimism, but we've just been thumped by a team who do nothing but pump the ball long. They didn't have to do anything approaching quality football to beat us comfortably. We have nil leadership on the field and look no better whatsoever to last season. All the talk about RH having a preseason to work with the team looks like it's had zero effect. We still make criminal mistakes in defence at this level and didn't offer much up front again. As soon as we went one down, could you really see us coming back? The body language went to **** and there are no leaders out there. I fear a long, long season beckons.....

    Negative; So, at least we merit the 'disgusting' label. As for having 4 formations to choose from, re-arranging the deck chairs didn't save the Titanic.

    Positive; RH will sort things out, and we still have 37 games to play. If you are going to have a stinker of a performance, better it's in the first match.

    Poor in attack, abysmal in defense, poor goalkeeping. That was like last season under Hughes! Not impressed at all, and with Liverpool our goal difference may take a hammering. Have to say my confidence before the game for this season has taken a real battering. I hope this isn't another season of battling against relegation, but I fear the worst based on that 2nd half performance. Utterly embarrassing

    Hojberg walks into the team of course, but we are so powder puff in midfield.

    Agree with those saying 4 at the back.

    Sounds like Burnley ruthlessly exposed our weaknesses.

    Still never mind, it’s only Liverpool next week.

    Why oh why doesn’t Yoshida play in defence. He is an international player who has played well in a World Cup. Surely he’s a better bet than either of those other two clowns who continually cost us points with their League 1 standard of defending.

    That is harsh. Gunn did very little wrong

    Poor defence apart - we won't be winning many games playing a two man midfield of Romeu and Ward-Prowse - absolutely no connection with the attacking three and Romeu isolated as the holding midfielder.

    Easy for Burnley to beat us ......we are not are hard side to beat and that is our problem. Their 2nd goal was a joke! All standing ballwatching ... Am i the only one that thinks Angus Gunn is nothing special ? Was no where near any of their goals

    Yes but to you, Forster never did anything wrong.

    He’s crap. Basically an Instagram goalkeeper.
