I mean, for people worried about the league table, the current top 4 in Spain (as things stand) is Athletic Bilbao, Sevilla, Granada, & Real Sociedad, and much as I'd love an all-Basque/Andalusian top 4 in Spain it really isn't going to happen.

If we were top 4 I'd probably think we weren't going to win the title, but being in the bottom three, and playing as we are, I think there's a decent chance we'll go down.

Don't disagree, but it is still premature to draw conclusions.

After today yes I am worried. The poor results when in 10 men situations is very big issue. Losing today was total incompetence and incompetent teams do not survive,

We need to win next Saturday.

At the moment table is still condensed and not yet split into many seperate divisions beyond the top 2 who are miles better than everyone else.

We beat Burnley and we move to 7 points so one off Chelsea, Man. United, Sheffield United and a few other teams who have had comfortable starts and don't look like getting relegated.

Struggle to get wins in our next three and it's not going to be a real slog then up to middle of December as that's when the hard fixtures start piling up one after the other. Man. City and then Liverpool in one week at the start of November for example. Minor miracle to even get a point out of those two games.

Keep saying this, I dont want to be the plucky side who have a go but come up short. To throw away the game today, to only manage a draw v 10 man West Ham is very poor. Its ok Dean or others saying it will be ok, fact is, we have thrown away points. We need to get clever and very quickly. 4 points from the next two games and yes things look different, but I can only comment on what has happened.

There's undoubtedly a chance we'll finish bottom 3. We haven't been beaten out of sight but we've looked shambolic at points in games too often and losing 4 out of 6 tells its own story. Long way to go and as we saw last season form can switch dramatically. Hopefully there's some good times ahead this season but at the moment it's shit. Today was a real choker in particular.

I think this is a nail on head comment.

All season weve been saying played well but we need to learn about the PL quickly and cut out the silly mistakes which is true. But at the moment we appear to be doing neither. How long before the its still early season, new team excuses start becoming the norm.

Id say DS has 10/12 games. If were still treading water then id expect the owners to get twitchy. They like a name and I can see them going for Mouriniho.

Is there anything from them to suggest that? Surely if that was true they would have gone Henry over Dean Smith in the first place.

Theyll either go internal (Terry) or tried and trusted PL experience. Henry was a name (just not a managerial one).

I hate to use the dreaded 'F' word but we are starting to sound very fickle very quickly. We might be Aston Villa but right now we are a newly promoted club who have spent the best part of a decade struggling to survive in the Premier League, failing to survive in the Premier League and then battling to get back into the Premier League. The criticism of the manager who got us promoted at the first time of asking is particularly unfair. Seriously, did anybody think this season was going to be a cakewalk?
