No. We've also hit the woodwork 4 times

Saw some stats on it. We've missed something like 2nd or 3rd big chances and 2nd for hitting woodwork. That's before today too so probably made worse

Hopefully our saving grace will be that there will be 3 worse sides than us and we should have Zaha at the club and fit for the whole season. Bit we havenít looked at all good this season. Missing Cabaye hugely and RLC going back has really hurt us. On the games so far this season, Ayew, Meyer, Kouyate and Sorloth arenít that good in Premier League terms. I still think we should have enough about us to stay up. I think it will be a fairly close call this season though.

I think we’ve been okay at times. I also think that the Premier League is relatively poor this season- there are more rubbish teams than there has been for a while

How can you possibly judge on the game time they have had? A run of full games is necessary before anyone can judge surely.

A couple of seasons ago we were regularly losing at home to bottom half teams after struggling to break down 10 man defence and being caught on the break. Remember losing at home to Sunderland( several times), Villa, WBA,Hull Burnley, Southampton, West Ham, Swansea Huddersfield Everton, Watford, Bournemouth. The positive under Hodgson is that we have stopped losing such matches (Southampton 2 weeks ago being the exception). The challenge now is to turn these sort of matches into wins...something most bottom half teams struggle with.

I am always more confident about playing bottom half teams away from home and top half teams at home.

I said ďOn the games so far this season.... ď! Who knows how they will develop. You can only make a judgement on what they have shown so far. Thatís what Hodgson must do in training to decide who starts each week.

We are much better than Newcastle, Huddersfield, Cardiff and Fulham. We will have no problem staying up.

Nonsense.

Particularly where Meyer is concerned.

I agree, but I'd also say we need to beat the top 6 at home which we have rarely been able to do, though we got close a few times last season.

Not so sure about that. We have one goalscorer. If he gets injured or marked out of games, we could quite conceivably struggle.

I genuinely feel on the evidence so far that we've again left ourselves short in front of goal and already suspect the January window could prove vital.

Could someone create a calendar for this season ? Maybe call it the guaranteed 40 points predictor or something more positive ! I’d like to see it, it was a real touchstone for me last year

For me,if I put my optimistic head on I am hopeful that Huddersfield, Cardiff and Newcastle May become adrift but then things can change so fast ...we saw how we improved last season after a worse start than any of those three ...

I do my own each season based on a very crude overall season record of 10 wins, 10 draws and 18 defeats

with a 6-4-9 ratio at home
and a 4-6 -9 ratio away

I just base it on last season's final placings with the promoted teams placed 18th-20th.

I roughly estimate that we need to beat the bottom 6 at home and the bottom 4 away

obviously football is not at all like that in predictability but it works for me as a rough guide

based on this method so far for a 40 point finish:

game 1: fulham A gained 3 points expected 3 points; final expected (40+0) = 40
game 2: liverpool H gained 0 points expected 0 points; final (40+0) =40
game 3: watford A gained 0 points expected 1 point; final (40-1) =39
game 4: southampton H gained 0 points expected 3 points, final (39-3) =36
game 5: huddersfield A gained 3 points expected 1 point final (36+2)=38
game 6: newcastle H gained 1 point expected 1 point final (38+0) =38

So I reckon so far (after only 6 games) we are on for a 38 point finish

a bit worryingly we have scored the lowest amount of goals (4 in 6 matches) outside the bottom 3
