Now who are we going to blame for this loss?you can say rafa if you want but my blame goes to the BOARD,rafa said he needed more bodies and that the squad was thin but the board chose to ignore him because he isn't in the long term future of CFC,the truth is apart from the fact that we are ineffective in attack with torres on the pitch,the defence was so unprotected,romeu is out injured and mikel away at south africa,the board chose to improvise and use either ramires or luiz as a holding midfielder!!!....newcastle's second goal,terry miscaculated,gouffran was left alone with cahill,we all know that if mikel was present he would have either chased gouffran and free cahill to stick with sissoko or sticked with sissoko while cahill chased gouffran...the third goal,sissoko was free just at the edge of the box,I asked myself why?where was ramires that was to shield the defence?sissoko played behind the striker and it was our holding midfielder's role to close him down but where was he?Ramires can't be a DMF,he lacks the positional discipline as a DMF but the board chose not to sign a DMF who could shield the defence,we concede so many goals not because our defence is bad but because the pressure is just to much for them to hold and that's why a DMF is important in a team but the board chose to ignore the importance of a DMF,we will keep conceeding lots of goals until mikel gets back,he is our only hope now....there is this saying that we won't value what we have until we loose it,I guess mikel critics would agree that even if he offers nothing attacking wise but he does a lot defensively...its all the board's fault...

Disgraceful performance this really sums up our season and Tubby has to go.

Rafa. He knows that he does not have the bodies and still stick to the inherited 4-2-3-1 without a natural holding midfielder, which exposes the defence when we attack oh counters
