    Zouma, what a disappointment; I remember when he looked promising some years ago.

    And to think he's our best CB after Silva....who's 36.

    The defending will be the end of Lampard. Not unless something drastic happens. Like our starting back line remains healthy until January.

    Zouma getting all the criticism but Christensen is just as dodgy. It’ll be a long year with two of them in the lineup

    2 of the 3 goals conceded where individual errors.... 3 goals against WBA again were individual errors. Is it because they don’t trust the keeper? Or just poor coaching. Last 15 minutes of the first half and most of the second we were being dominated...... happens a lot where start fast and then fade away and Frank doesn’t seem to know how to react.

    Not sure how you can blame Frank for Zouma and Kepa making elementary mistakes? Having said that in Lampard's managerial career his sides have always shipped goals.

    Thought we were the better team over the 90. We really need to stop playing like crap at the start of matches though.

    I'm starting to believe we force the situations (individual errors) because of bad coaching.

    Instead of working to get out of Saint's press by switching the field of play, or even just hoofing it on some occasions, we continued to play it in dangerous areas. Our defence also continues to get exposed given the gap in midfield that still hasn't been fixed since day one. No midfielder sits. One long ball and our defence is completely exposed.
