I think the difference in opinion here is that i don't think we're playing that badly at the moment. Sure we're not playing at the top of our game every time the players take the field, but then again we're not losing. Maybe i'm being optomistic but i think we've played well enough in every game, for at least periods of 30 mins to have put the game beyond any teams reach, apart from the 2 Manchester games obviously. When this level can be achieved throughout 90 mins we'll get the 3-0 and 4-0 results, but i re-iterate, i don't think we're playing that badly. To be honest i think tonights game will be a good indicator to whether we can sustain an attempt to get in the top four again. Villa are a very good side , who i'd have compared us to about 4-5 years ago. If we can beat them a home and with a bit of flair we'll not be far off track and not playing badly.
