Stephen Snell Slav has had it wrong a few games now, should I be worried about his ability to manage now

Stephen Snell Just don’t get why he plays Carroll, we would have been much better with Sakho up top and Zarate behind him, and when it was 4-0 why not try Antoino instead of jalvaic ???

Graham Herbert
Graham HerbertBillic certainly is not the ‘messiah’ that some people thought he was. We will be ok but it’s about time people started to lower their expectations a bit (owners included, it seems). I have no doubts we will finish out of the bottom three. I think we will finish about halfway – but top five? Get real. If Billic has learnt anything from this appalling game, it must be: have a plan B and DONT START CARROLL!
Toby Cole
Toby Cole Well with Noble suspended next game makes bringing Song in easier but we have to drop Carroll back to the bench and work out our forward line

Niall McDonald Leicester, Bournemouth, Norwich, Sunderland, Watford and now Spurs – 6 bad days at the office already Carol!!! Most of those opponents wanted it more, or made it very difficult, if i recall Bilic’s post-match reactions correctly. Sitting back, getting a goal and hitting on the break is a great plan A. I wouldn’t mind seeing a Plan B at some point

Carol Combes
Carol Combes Didn’t press from the ‘off’. Playing AC 1up a mistake. Most looked like their brains were still on international break!
