At this rate, we might just as well kiss the league title goodbye. The only goal I was prepared to celebrate yesterday was our third goal---if it had come, so I wasn't among those millions of fans dancing around because we had salvaged a point in a game that we should have won really---on paper that is.
Manchester United as the moment don't seem to have the required midfield personnel to mount a title challenge---unless we play five in the middle which has worked so well for us. But we're not the kind of team that preaches defence because we need as many attacking players as possible on the pitch to play the United way. We're not like City who'll play three games at home and score no go goal. It's why we have to play the traditional 4-4-2 but I'm afraid we might have to adjust to the 4-5-1 for the sake of saving our season. I mean Fulham, West Brom, Liverpool, Villa and Everton have now scored at least two or more goals against us. That means that we are as porous as we could possibly get when compared to the last four seasons.
By the end of the afternoon, we could be six points behind Chelsea and in third place in the league. I know we've played some very tricky away games so far but we might just be running out of room to correct the wrong of our early season stagger.
The one silver lining we can draw is that this unbeaten thing keeps on following us. I mean with ten minutes left at 2-0 down given the way we played, you had to think that this would be the first but somehow we score 2 without a reply from them and the streak goes on and on and on....
