That game was crying out for a Dave Edwards type player. :lol:

10 points from 15 + another clean sheet away from home.

Happy with that tbh.

I don't understand this sudden negativity/pessimism that's befallen us all of a sudden... from my perspective:

1) We're 4th with 10 from 5 games and won 3 games against some of the sternest opposition for this season (like it or lump it - it appears cardiff will be up there) and Brentford are 100% better than 23rd - I would love to see who genuinely believes Brentford will finish there this season.

2) We have gained 7 points from 3 away games.

3) We have kept 3 clean sheets in these first 5 games against challenging opposition.

4) We are playing with a clear identity and purpose that has only been evident since pre-season. The international break will give us another 2 weeks nearly to become better.

5) At the risk of sounding stereotypically British - a lot of our coaches/Nuno/the players we've bought in will have gained valuable experience in these games to take on and use after the international break.

6) We are putting round pegs in round holes, very rarely have we had to see players being played out of position (Graham at RWB is the only major example in my mind as I do not count Coady in this regard).

7) We are still looking to bring in 3 players.

8) We have been playing without Costa and Marshall who were the standout players of last season. Yes, Marshall was crap/below average/poor etc. against Southampton but he was unfit and I seem to recall the out roar after his first game in January/February when he was also unfit and the subsequent improvement that came along as he became match fit.

I'm delighted with the start and fully believe that we will improve further.

It was a scrappy affair and a point is all we deserved. We were lucky to escape with it but they were also lucky that our shooting was inept.

An away point against a competitive footballing team is acceptable and they're in a false position in the table based on that performance.

It was one of those 0-0 draws that are quite exciting and worth the effort of going to see. We'll play worse than that and win at some point in the season.
