Yep, I still can't believe we lost to Norwich what an almighty fuck up that was, just look at their form after our game , think it's LLLLLL, might've been a draw in there but fucking hell they're shit.Closing the gap isn’t the priority right now. It’s not a case of them not dropping 9 points over the season, they will, the issue is can we keep pace with them until Christmas before we can reinforce and look to make up the difference.
We’ve played 2 of the so called top 6+ Leicester so far and dropped 11 points, 5 of which was against those 2. We’re coming into a period where our next six league games are Newcastle Burnley and arsenal away and Chelsea United and Leicester at home, that’s about as tough as it gets. Meanwhile in the same time, Liverpool play palace and Bournemouth away(West Ham away postponed) and Brighton Everton and Watford at home. It would take a miracle for us to keep pace with them through that given our respective starts.
It’s too easy to blame var but the truth is our performances haven’t been good enough. var had no impact on us losing to Norwich or wolves which has been costlier than the dropped points because of var decisions going against us.
So do I.Someone on an other thread stated along the lines of get Ferdi in his proper position and that would help things and I agree.
Dinho hasn't played many games as a DM since February. It's far from given he would perform better than Rodri. We weren't bad in midfield at all. It's not like we didn't create chances or were dominated by Liverpool. 1st goal was controversial, 3rd goal on Bravo/Angelino/Walker...Our midfield did very well at Anfield, we haven't created so many chances there in ages.So do I.
We had three players available on Sunday that would have made our midfield three the best midfield in world football and we only played one of them in midfield.
You make a good pointI think it’s more likely that decisions (perhaps again, depending on your thoughts about the 2015-2016 season) start going the way of Leicester, in addition to Liverpool.
That gives “credibility” (former league winning side) and “marketability” (still seen as the plucky underdog but has a decent hold of the Asian market, with still room to grow) to their efforts to make the league more “competitive”.
