Anyone starting to get worried?
« on: September 01, 2019, 07:29:19 AM »
So 10% of the season gone, played a top 4 side, a side looking to break into top 6 and 2 sides that you’d expect we’d be competing to stay up with. P4-W1-L3.

We’ve not had much luck but that’s still a disappointing return. We needed to get off to a good start, we haven’t and at times we’ve looked naive. So anybody starting to get worried yet?

Well it's not been a great start, but we have, through necessity, assembled a new squad and they need some time to work cohesively. If the next four yield the same return, I think you  would have to become concerned - but to be honest I'm not really a great fan of this bullshit , super hyperbolic venal, greedy grasping league anyway.MOTD says it all - cnuts.

No. There are teams with much worse team work, ethic and spirit than us so we’ll be fine. Much to improve but we have a talented manager and squad with much to learn. Early days and all that.

It's been deflating to lose 3 out of the 4 and given the scars of our recent history there is the nagging concern that we could go weeks, months without winning again. I think these are the natural emotions of the football fan. Logic tells me there are 34 games to go so there is no need to worry. If last season taught us anything it is that teams can transform their level of performance hugely within a season. So I'm going to be positive. On to the next one (shame it's 2 weeks away)

Not yet - much depends if we can stay in striking distance of 17th. We can buy in jan if needed. If we continue with the commitment I’m sure we’ll get better. If we’re still in the bottom 3 at Xmas I’ll worry.

No. Expected 4 maybe 5 points at this stage.

No, wanted a win and a draw from Everton and Palace. Which we should have had.

Yes. We’re not going to score enough goals, and we’re way too lightweight in midfield.

Another point would have been nice as if we can average 2 points per game we will stay up but it’s not terrible and still early days.

We have a capable squad I would like DS to make changes early when players are not performing.

No not worried  I’ve seen enough to know we are good enough to reach mid table at least

Worried? A little bit. Pissed off? More than a little bit.
