Looking at the table ...
Of the 11 games played so far... we’ve played

10 of the 12 teams above us
1 of the 7 teams below us

Hopefully we’ll be a healthy position come 2019 - but this is WEST HAM so who fucking knows

Our defence looks too vulnerable for me to have much hope of better performances later in the season. Late goals against are not the result of bad luck, but of (a) running out of puff; and (b) thinking it's OK to let opponents control the game provided they do not get into our penalty area.

Re: Looking at the table ...
brick_lane_batty_boy how many of them players bought with that £100 million are regulars in the first team now? Or youngsters introduced onto the big stage or asked to swap roles?

The spine of the team now are mainly new players + a youngster asked to swap position.

A shambles? No, a team that will probably take a good part of the season gelling into a team.

Only two of last seasons team seem to be keeping their form the rest are a shambles when even picked at times.

The way I view it is that we've spent 100mm - and we're already 5pts off 10th.

It's a bit of a shambles

and it works in reverse too don't forget, we've nicked our fair share of wins when we probably didn't deserve to. I recall Arsenal when Rob Green saved absolutely everything thrown at him, and I think we nicked it with out only shot on goal the whole game.

'if you lose to a side that you should be beating them no you don't deserve anything'

What a load of rubbish. I can think of plenty of games that we've won or drawn where we were battered off the pitch for 90 mins but somehow the ball didn't end up in the back of our net. We were unlucky not to get something at Brighton on the balance of play and sometimes that's the way it goes.

We were the better team against Brighton, had nearly double the possession that Brighton had, created double the amount of chances and had 5 times more corners. We deserved something out of the game just couldn't get the ball in the back of the net.

What is your brother's opinion on the Leicester game? They didn't look like scoring all night then it deflects in off our defenders arse in the 89th minute...was that deserved? or was it a massive slice of luck?

Hear what you are saying, but imo if you lose to a side that you should be beating them no you don't deserve anything. Agree with all your other points and we really must win on Saturday.

Fair enough. But at the end of the day we deserved at least a point.

By your reckoning then no team in the world deserves anything if they lose.

But anyway, my point was that bar some bad luck, poor finishing and the odd calamity moment I think we are playing to a level that is well worthy another 5 or 6 points.

That would put us about 3 points behind Bournemouth who everyone is raving about.

That's why I say teams below and around us are playing to their maximum. We aren't and we potentially have so much more to give. And we could start by dispatching Huddersfield Saturday.

Re: Looking at the table ...
So we had a few other chances, mainly half chances. We didn't play well imo and we were never going to score had we been there all night. I watched the game with my bother, who is a neutral and knows his football,and even he said 'you were never gonna score' It was all huff and puff and it was a typical case of going 1 down in a PL game away from home and it being a long way back.

Bottom line is we couldn't score a goal against a very average PL side, so we deserved nothing. You can't not score against an average side over 90 mins and then say 'we deserved something' it's an oxymoron.

Arnie put a sitter over the bar close to the end. Before that keeper saved well from Arnie and Pedro put the rebound over the bar which should have been a goal. And as you say Balbeuna heading wide from four yards also.

We had 17 attempts at goal. Arnie had 5 on his won.

No complaints. We lost. But you seem to be the only person that thinks it was at least a point thrown away. Chris Hughton included.

We wont ever have an easier December than the one we have.

Fingers crossed we can get a win against Huddersfield and kick on from there!

I watched the Brighton game in pub, I seem to recall the general missing a sitter, but that aside it was all huff and puff, never thought we were going to score that night and had no complaints with the defeat..

and occasionally in some sorts bedroom toasting our success the morning after!!!

Re: Looking at the table ...
results have been erratic, but performances have been as consistent as i can remember.

regardless of the score we seem to spend 75% of a match on the front foot playing some very tidy football, with the results coming down to our blunted edge and inability to keep the back door shut.

we're finding our way under pellegrini, but we're more like a drunk staggering home and occasionally finding themselves in the canal.

Wolves have next 3 Arsenal away,Huddersfield home, Cardiff away

Re: Looking at the table ...
I think Fabianski has been a real positive and never really see us being on the receiving end of a hammering like we were always liable to in previous seasons. We will always lose games, that's a given but the likelihood of getting trounced by 3, 4 or even more goals doesnt look like a possibility. Obviously the first game against Liverpool aside.

So who's our next home game....................there goes my logic!

Agreed. Thought Fulham would be decent this year

Re: Looking at the table ...
The same team against Uddersfield should see us get another win followed by a two-week break to allow one or two injured players a chance to return to the bench.

AnotherDay_SameShit 11:43 Mon Nov 5

Really??

I agree we were beaten 'fair and square' as in they won fairly but even Chris Hughton believed they 'rode their luck'.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/football/45770072

We had more chances but I am not saying we should have won but a draw would have been a fair result.

Re: Looking at the table ...
Fulham is a surprise, I thought they would be challenging
