I agree with Sutts. It is the manner of the defeats this year that have seen a marked difference from previous. Liverpool result aside, no team has torn us apart at will a la Bilic and (to a lesser extent) Moyes.

There seems to be a greater mental toughness this year. Previously, one goal would inevitably be followed by 1-2 more before we decided to have a go at it. I can't count the times where we decided to give the opposition a 2 goal headstart just for turning up.

Plus, we're playing better football overall. No stats to back it up, per se, it just feels better

I'm not totally convinced, but you make some good points :thup:

One thing for sure is that we are being entertained more, that is a huge positive we all agree on.

Clacton, not sure if you're seeing the full game on a stream, or seeing either the MotD or Sky highlights packages, but the edits of the latter two can give a lop-sided impression (especially the BBC...). For instance, the BBC showed the Anderson volley, Sky showed Hart's save from Arnie, but not vice-versa.

In my opinion we have been improving since Liverpool. The graph has ups and downs, but the overall trend is definitely up.

Watch both Albie, but ta :thup:

Only getting 3 live games in, plus highlights will distort my view, one thing I truly miss after giving my ST up, nothing is quite like being there is it!

Just nine points from the next 13 last season. Surely we can do much better than that...
