Even Declans standard has dropped somewhat under the lemurs guidance.
True, but it is to be expected for individuals to be off their peak if their team is playing badly. My point is that Rice is still playing well, albeit in a poor team. Whereas Paqueta, at least imo, is playing poorly in a poor team. A lot of people on this forum and other social media forums had clearly seen a lot more of Paqueta than a lot of us including me had ( 2 games against us last season) because they were expressing views that he was the catalyst necessary to jump start our season.. Our illustrious fuhrer was one of many extolling Paqueta's range of skills. We have to assume they had seen him play a lot more than us to be able to hold such views and, therefore, to many of us his performances are disappointing when compared to the hype that preceded his arrival.
I personally wouldn't trust Moyes if he told me Christmas day fell on the 25th. Which is why the stunted one (if rumours are true) sticks his beak in regarding transfers.
We all know the manager should be left alone in such cases but Moyes has proved to be a dithering tosspot when spending money and there lies the problem.
Everyone knows it takes time for new players to gel but our season has been a fragmented one with players being injured (Pacqueta being a prime example) and compounded by the nonsense of the winter world cup.
That said of course if Pacqueta is deemed good enough to play for a side of Brazil's caliber then you would think he's good enough for us, that is of course dependent on a manager who can best utilise him.
Personally I think Moyes is the worst manager in the premier league on and off the pitch and would turn the most accomplished of player in to a Sunday morning clogger.
A loss of form from one or two is inevitable, but for the whole team to be so poor can only be down to one thing, the manager.
Love a cup of Rosey I do.
