We have been very unlucky in our recent games. I am convinced our fortunes will change soon.

Thereís a lot of blind optimism on these boards. We are in deep deep trouble. If you listen to Hodgsonís post-match comments he seems to be much more aware of how bad our plight is than some of the fans are. He also seems to be getting rather angry about the deficiencies in the squad particularly from his comments about having to bring a left winger on to play centre forward. Hopefully, we will turn it around but the signs are not at all good. We havenít scored a goal in an away league game yet this season.

Seriously? We can't score. It's really not good at all. 4 goals in 11. We've been poor all season bar one and a half games.

There is one thing being optimistic and another being plain daft. We are more than likely going down but after every close defeat some on here say keep playing like that and we will stay up. We do keep playing like that and we still keep losing.Losing has become a bad habit for us.

I am quite sure that other smaller teams would have struggled if they had played as many top sides as Palace and Everton have in their opening 11 games of a 38 game season.

I doubt this is even true but you keep spouting it. Look at Burnley for example - they've beaten Chelsea away, got a draw away to Liverpool and Spurs, but lost to Man City away. It's a great return.

By your reckoning we should win most of our next 8 then. Hopefully we will do that - we won't have any excuses if we don't.

We cannot score goals because we donít have any strikers. Even when Benteke is fit he has no competition. Itís a ludicrous position for a professional football club to be in and is costing us very dearly.

Agree with the can't score part..but we haven't been poor the last 4 games. Played bloody well but thanks to the ineptitude of our summer transfer activities like myself we're firing blanks.

Huddersfield and Swansea at home have been the only two truly awful results (points wise).

We really need a team to implode, at the moment we are rightfully one of the 3 worst teams in the league.

Thankfully the season doesn't end now

We played well yesterday - unlucky not to get a point but we will always struggle when we can't score. We played very well against West Ham in the second half but the first half was among the worst of the season. We lost to a very average Newcastle team - Bournemouth's win against them says it all. And a great win against Chelsea.

Performances have definitely picked up which is encouraging but the fact is that we have only scored in two of our 11 games. That is an incredible stat.

Oh **** off mate, we've lost to Everton, Huddersfield, Southampton, Newcastle, Burnley and Swansea already. Proper top sides them eh?

And for those still clutching on to the 'we've been unlucky and deserved a point' theory, you don't get anywhere in football for trying hard. You need to win and earn that win.

We are clearly a better side than derby were back then. Which makes the achievement of being behind their run rate at this stage even more unimpressive.

I think there is a case to be made for us being on one of the worst runs in premier league history. Mainly due to the fact that so much dosh has gone into achieving it.

It is an incredible stat! All roads lead to the monumental cock up in having no striker when the window ‘slammed shut’! I know we all keep saying it, but it’s just tragically obvious.

If we aren’t too far adrift when the next window opens, you have to hope/pray/meditate/[other positive cognitive behaviour to be added] that the board are ready with the readies on day one of the window. We simply cannot wait until 31 January.

You don't deserve to get anything if you can't keep a clean sheet and can't score.

All this bollocks about luck is just that. Bollocks

Sadly so. The Board have to ensure as many players as possible sign on 1 Jan when the window opens. There won't be any excuses not to have a new striker at least in place, plus a keeper too. I'm sure they know this though.
