No comments so far so I will start.

We were horrible. Slow and predictable.

We can beat lumber past Stock, Yeovil, and Huddersfield - but there is a long way to go.

We seem to be less than the some of the individual parts.

A dull, pedestrian victory against a shit team? Pretty much what everyone was expecting weren't it?

Last season we would have drawn that game, so you can't complain about the win, but IMO that's the only improvement visible over the past 12 months. Mourinho mentioned the "quiet" stadium yesterday - that's certainly not gonna change if we continue to put out the performances we do. The players look bored FFS, let alone the fans.

We're (semi-)comfortably second, and I expect us to hold that position, but considering how dogshit the league's been this season (the whole bottom half are in a relegation battle and Burnley are still 7th despite not winning in about ten games) I'm afraid our improvement might be a bit of a false dawn. Right now, I can't see us being anywhere near good enough to battle for the title next season.

Sanchez has looked great so far and his fight, determination and precision have put the rest of the squad to shame. Hopefully he brings them up and not the other way around.

We weren't that bad. Completely dominant. We struggled to break them down, but had a fair amount of chances.

We were against a team who set up to avoid embarrassment. It seems to be a growing trend. It used to be the case where, if a team goes a goal down, they will open up and try and get a goal back. This lot were not interested.

How many team are entertaining to watch this season? Not many. 2 or 3? Compared to the rest of the league we're not that boring.

Teams come to OT to defend, they always did under SAF and that led to some proper boring matches of football as we tried to beat an 1-10 formation and a very well organised team. What happened, is what usually happens, teams can typically only concentrate and physically exert themselves for 60 mins or so, after that the concentration slips and gaps appear. I thought we played OK, it wasn't a boring match, it just took some time for the gaps to appear.
