If its on TV it will be Embarrassing with a capital E! The shocking state of the team will be exposed to all - brace yourselves for the ridicule!!!!!
I just hope its not double figures - thats how poor we are at the moment - conceding 20+ shots to both Bury and Crewe. God knows how many chances Chelsea will create!!!!!!
Resign Freedman and do the club a huge favour
