Well, here we are again after another disappointing day for the multitude of Swing-o-Meter fans.

Okay, yes, we move to four wins out of four, and won one-nil at a ground that saw a four-nil defeat last season.

But the stats show some worrying trends that I'm sure give us all cause for concern.

Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins are now averaging less than a goal a game. Even with me being incredibly generous and rounding up a half goal for them, they still both look like failing to even get to thirty goals this season. Very disappointing. And don't even get me started on Ezri Konsa's goalscoring "form".

Now, we move on to the Drummond Method total. 111. What the fuck are they playing it? Do our players not watch cricket? Surely they know 111 is unlucky? Idiots.

Still, the main issue is, clearly, the dizzying decline of a certain Mr J. Grealish. From being ranked as the best player in the league, he is now only best equal. To make matters worse, just look at the the absolute jokers that are level with him. One, Harry Kane, plays for a team that just blew a three goal lead. The other, Sergio Mane, couldn't even get on the bench for a team that lost SEVEN-TWO!

If Grealish can't even get ahead of jobbers like these it is no wonder many Villa fans rue the day we turned down Tottenham's generous offer of 2 million plus a nearly complete set of "Shoot!" magazine league ladders from the 1972/73 season.

His plummeting form probably explains the unexpected email I received this morning from someone called "PizzaMan70": "LOLZ GREALISH IS SHIT MASON4EVA!!!". I've no idea who Mason is, but Eva sounds a lucky girl.

Through the gloom, there is at least some good news, as John McGinn remains on course to average an assist per game. So well done him. The rest of you... must try harder.

Cd I am rather concerned that you have glossed over the fact that our much lauded goalkeeper only managed two saves all match.

Just to reintroduce a note of positivity, if current trends continue over the course of the whole season then after 38 games our goal difference will be roughly 160 better than the Baggies.

No team with 15 or more points after 10 games has ever gone down, while teams with between 12 and 14 points have a better than 90 per cent chance of survival.

Bv is right, up until very recently our so-called "goalkeeper" had a weekly rolling average of conceding at a rate of two goals per game. That is clearly unsustainable if we're to stand a chance of staying in this division.

I've written to Barry Took at Points of View and Esther Rantzen at That's Life to complain, so worry not they'll get it sorted.

Really disappointed in Konsa.  He showed so much promise earlier in the season, a proper old-fashioned top-goalscorer-centre-half.  He's looking more and more like a player who'll struggle to hit double figures even once in his career.

Re Border Villan and LastFootStamper.

Just been looking at some Twitter stats.

Apparently the waste of space in goal for us has only been responsible for 15% of clean sheets in the Prem so far.

He really needs to buck his ideas up and get the figure nearer to 100%!!

For some reason I forgot all about this thread this week...

Still, I suppose we did lose at home to Dirty Leeds Fairly Clean Bournemouth last season so no points lost.

We will probably still win the league, judging  by The Drummond Method, but it is going to be much more nervy than we thought. Is it too much to ask, just once, for us to have the title wrapped up with ten games to go?

No wonder we are struggling with McGinn now plummeting so much in form that he looks like barely scraping thirty assists this season.

Don't even mention Konsa. Answer to all our goalscoring problems, we thought. As a former punk icon turned racist sympathising arsehole once said "ever get the feeling you've been cheated"?

If villa and Fulham were in a box and opening the box would relegate 1, without opening the box which one would it be? My bet is Fulham are in the superposition

If it helps, we're currently on target for 76 points and 95 goals.
