Common sense is hardly an attribute widely attributed to lovers of the beautiful game, but reactionary madness comes in spades.
Two games in and some fans have already hit the panic button, with a surprising number of Manchester City supporters rejecting Manuel Pellegrini’s ‘holistic’ approach to football after one win and one defeat…
Fulham 1-3 Arsenal
Hopefully this gentleman was being ironic/drunk…
I am sorry Fulham supporters but I can't take this anymore I'm supporting QPR from now on. Up the RRRRRRRS! #QPR

This Arsenal fan gets over-excited after a routine win over weaker opposition:
Southampton 1-1 Sunderland
The concept of teams not winning every game appears alien to this fan…

Newcastle United 0-0 West Ham United Amazing how a goalless draw between two similar teams can provoke such contrasting reactions from supporters…

Hull City 1-0 Norwich City Hull fans do not want to be ‘rebranded’ as the Hull City Tigers. Except they are already known as the Tigers, and this supporter group even has Tiger in its name. Confused? You should be.
Chris Hughton has made some of the signings of the summer and is surely the man to stabilise Norwich as a top-flight club. But one narrow defeat away to Hull, and his time is up…

Cardiff City 3-2 Manchester City That’s a lot to take from one match!
I hope this is ironic. Not an isolated opinion, it must be said…
City lost to Cardiff? They are going down. Not positive. Pellegrini is a bad manager. So boring. Pellegrini out. It's all his fault.

Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Swansea You’d think Spurs fans would be happy with their 100% start to the season domestically and in Europe…
