I think you have to take all our nine draws and see how many of them we should have won and how many a point was either fair or lucky for us. The fact is that had we converted just 3 of those draws into wins and the rest into defeats we'd have the same points as we do now albeit more of our rivals would have 2 points extra than 1 point less.

I'd break down our draws as follows:

West Ham (H) - Respect the point - Although we should have won you have to be satisfied with a point when you equalise in the 97th minute.
Everton (H) - No respect the point - Should have won
Brighton (A) - Respect the point - Drab game and neither side deserved to win.
West Brom (A) - Respect the point - We were lucky there
Bournemouth (H) - No respect the point - If anyone said Respect the Point after that game they might have got a black eye!
Swansea (A) - Respect the point - That was a must not lose game
Man City (H) - No respect the point - Despite the fact we'd have all taken a draw beforehand, another injury time penalty miss to win so soon after Bournemouth was hard to take.
West Ham (A) - Respect the point - Debatable this and certainly looked a good opportunity to win with their injury problems but the way the game unfolded a point was satisfactory
Newcastle (H) - No respect the point - Should have won

I know I'm totally missing the point (!), but I'd rather see 3 draws (even disappointing ones) to get 3pts, than one good win then 2 shitty defeats.

Agree with Loafster. But also think we get safe quickest by beating the teams around us.

It is an annoying cliche. If you hate this phrase I fear that the rest of the season may be annoying because of the other annoying cliche - a relegation six-pointer.

The table is so bloody tight you can see teams shutting up shop to preserve a narrow lead or respecting a point to stop the others stealing a march as panic sets in. Could lead to some dull fare.

Personally I prefer celebrate a win. Look how Bournemouth have got away in a week (as we did in December) but I can see in the current scheme of things a draw is adequate.

This discussion isn’t about the merits of draws.

It’s about the f*ckwits who dress up depressing draws as some sort of win. As the thread is proving.

Draws can f*ck off right now. Particularly at home against sh*t teams in the bottom six.

I don't think we settled for the point and went for it but just couldn't get the winner. If we had a striker on form we'd have won that no problem. We've thrown away so many points at home. That is definitely two points dropped.

Sorry, is this a misunderstanding? I'm agreeing with that. My point was we crushed Leicester when no-one expected us to.

Re-reading the thread, St Alban's point seems to be we ground out wins where we struggled, so yes, I got the wrong end of the stick there. Apologies

It's not.

"It's the Palace/Liverpool/Arsenal/anyteam way" is.

As if there's some sort of overriding spiritual force about the club that overrides any players, management, recent form or opposition.

In the last 2 games, we could have done with 3 points rather than 2. However, 3 points would have meant that a relegation rival gains 3 points on us in the game that we lost. I can see why managers don’t want to lose the 6 pointer games. Be interesting to see if Roy goes for it a bit more when we play the big boys in a couple of weeks time.
