    going to be a long season.

    There you go again. Why always the personal attack? But if that's where you want to go....

    How come you haven't slammed AVB for saying he wants to win the title, even before he saw the team kick a ball in earnest?

    How come you haven't slammed AVB for playing defensive - he plays two defensive MFs at home. He then takes off a striker for a defensive MF as soon as the team take the lead - then loses the lead and has no where to go? As I pointed out before, 3 points now is the same as 3 points in the last game of the season. We may end up regretting having a poor start.

    As for:
    '...can u imagine if we had started with 4-4-2.
    a certain poster would have said thats why it didnt work! & ignore the many occasions when 1 up front didnt work this year.

    You tend to miss any point with regard to Daffy. Daffy isn't a great goalscorer (I've asked before, and I'll ask again - show me the best years Daffy has had in the EPL - goals and assists) - he's average. He doesn't lend anything else to the team. He isn't too good at holding up the ball and bringing others into play. He isn't too good at being a single striker - so all that really leaves is two up front. That's fine - but Daffy doesn't make that many partnerships either. He shoots rather than passes (I do take on board the assist yesterday - but his history of assists is also pretty poor). Daffy is OK, but one dimensional. He needs others to provide for him, but does not (normally) provide for others. I think the stats show that. I think most people see that.

    Keep having the digs SB, as the digs just make the whole [sic] deeper. You do make me smile ;-)!
