The reply I've been giving them is that I'm happy with where we are because we're just bobbing along nicely and will be up there when it matters - not in september. Plus there's only one direction they can go in as the season wears on whereas we can keep climbing steadily. There's no doubt we'll finish higher than them once the bad weather & injuries start coming for both teams. I certainly wouldn't swap my team, manager or league place for anyone else at the moment. It's a marathon not a sprint. They've been up there the past three seasons at the start of the season, got relegated once & nearly did again last season. We'll be fine, people need to keep the faith & stop overreacting & throwing toys out of their prams.
Totally agree Dan.
Every club is capable of, and has, produced lackluster performances
Every club is capable of, and has, produced displays where 1 or all the players are off pace or seem disinterested
Every club undergoes a 'longer than usual' settling-in period when they have made loads of summer signings
I'm struggling to see why we're any different?
For sure, if these problems persist then it's a real worry, but for now IMO it's nothing substantial to fear. I'm sure most fans don't seriously believe we've be sweeping teams away 2-0 or more every week and remain top 3 all season.
Football clubs are like horses (cue: comments about donkeys
) - it's the ones coming up on the rails with 3 furlongs to go that you should keep your eye on. I bet on Grand National Day some fans are hammering on Ladbrookes betting window, demanding their winnings the moment their horses lands in front over the 1st fence
