    Still on course

    Reality 1 - getting 39 points is fine as long as 3 teams get less. Reality 2 - we are currently in 19th position because there is only one team with less points than us and only one team with a worse GD than us. Reality 3 - the way we are playing the only thing we are "on course" for at the moment is relegation.

    Well there's certainly something odd going on if the players who make up our squad can't mark somebody, can't tackle or make a pass to a team mate.

    I understand fully what you are saying but at the end of the day if you are a proffesional footballer in a PL squad, regardless of whether you are first second or third choice, you should be capable of producing the basic skills of the game - marking, tackling and passing.

    VAR Red Card Check?!!?

    Perhaps the 4th official understood our problems and wanted to save us from further punishment

    Bournmouth-what would you change

    I've just read the OP word for word in another thread

    Ricardo's report v Villa

    In fairness to Godfrey he's had more partners than Elizabeth Taylor. Difficult to build an understanding of what each other will do, or not do, in certain situations and act appropriately. This takes time when your partner is either new, playing out of position or useless.

    MOTD

    Playing out from the back is fine as long as you pass it to someone in the same team. We have lost the ability to do that at the moment mainly because other teams have worked out how to force us into making mistakes. They know all too well that eventually we will make a mistake. You can get away with a few mistakes but in this League you won't get away with all of them. We need to be more aware of when passing out from the back is a safe option and when it isn't the safe option. In short, we have become over reliant on this style of play and we are taking too many risks.

    Ricardo's report v Villa

    Very true, and I've seen it written on here many times before, but. We have now played 8 games out of 38 which is a tad over 20%. That's a bit of a difference from last season when we were poor for the first 5 or 6 games out of 46 (13%) After 6 games last season we got better. After 6 games this season we've got worse, much worse from what I saw this afternoon. If we are going to learn from this and improve then it had better be sooner rather than later. It may only be the beginning of October but with a 5th of the season's games already gone we really don't have that much time to sort things out.

    The system that got us here is broken. All the things that we used to do so well are no longer working. Teams have quickly learned how to stop us and we do not have any answers. Our passing fluency has gone, we continually give the ball away in dangerous areas, Pukki's reputation means he is getting marked out of games, our defending has got worse almost every week and we are no longer capable of out scoring the opposition. Well done McGovern.

    Better to spend the money on some new players perhaps

    Don't tell me that tippy tappy stuff around your own penalty area is the way forward. How many goals are we going to give away before we cut that out

    Stiepermann

    He has looked lackadaisical and a bit too casual for me. Think if he could just up the tempo, whilst taking more care, he'll be more effective. With regards his shooting he seems to be focusing on placement rather than power. Definitely needs to give more whelly.

    Come on Leicester

    Despite our current limitations we are surely miles better than Watford, Newcastle and Villa.
