If only seven teams have scored more than us, doesn't that point to our defending also being a wee bit... well crap?
It certainly says we are crap at not conceding from winning positions.

To me it says that there are plenty of better teams than us in this league but that is no great surprise given that we qualified through the playoffs with a cobbled together side and have had to rebuild from there. To expect it all to be fully functioning after one transfer window is unrealistic.

If youd said to me at the start of the season (or at least a few weeks in) that wed lose to Man City, Liverpool, Spurs, Arsenal (having a shite season I know), Chelsea, wolves and Leicester, I would of probably said expected, so its only really Bournemouth and Palace that I would of hoped to get something from. Thats not to say we havent got problems, like up front which its glaringly obvious the big man needs taken out the firing line for a bit and in midfield where since newcastle Ive thought we need to rest McGinn but cant really afford to.

My point is though, that the games that will decide our season are against the bottom 10, so far only lost to Bournemouth, but we badly need a number of wins on the bounce over xmas. My main fear is, as people have said, the heads dropping on Sunday, the last team we want to play with low confidence is Sheff Utd, who are the complete opposite. Get beat on Saturday, everyone has a meltdown and will be an anxious villa park for Southampton. But whatever the result on Saturday I believe weve shown already were as good as if not better than most of the teams around us

Chris is spot on, maybe if we had a tiny slice of luck we may be a couple points better off, however were a work in progress.  Other than a few  games I have enjoyed our setup and commitment to a trying to play exciting attacking football.

Chris is absolutely the voice of reason on this board.

Except in relation to David O'Leary.
