Positive: Dominated for 90 mins against a top 6 side.
Negative: Still don't score when we're on top.
I promise to be positive only for 20/21 :)

Positive - Clean sheet :strong:

Negative - we’re going down


I am of course joking about going down. We cannot get complacent though :rant:

Positives - dominated the game + clean sheet

Negatives - same old story as last season - can't create many clear cut chances and the ones we do we don't take

Positive. We deserved 3 points.
Negative. We only got 1.

Pos - Clean sheet

Neg - Crosses/set pieces

Comment... We have now played 3 of the big 6 taking a point each from 2 of them, both times we could have won those games, and it could be debated we could have won against liddypool. Time to stop thinking of ourselves as the new boys, we are a premier league club. And we are going to prove it.

Positive- We were the better side even before the sending off. Thats two of the traditional big 6 we have been better than this season (City and Arsenal)

Negatives- We need to take our chances, you will lose more than you win if you finish like that.

Imo we require more quality.

Positives - We dominated a "Top 6" team

Negative - Just lacking that execution in the box
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs

Positive: The pundits gush about the beautiful free flowing football we play and that it is a delight to watch.
Negative: Then you go and spoil it all by saying we will burn out... oh ye of little faith

Positive - we attracted plaudits from neutrals again for fast, flowing attacking football.
Negative - 25 shots, and only 4 or 5 on target - a familiar issue which has afflicted us throughout Bielsa's tenure.

Comment - Jack Harrison has started virtually every game since he arrived at the club, and frankly I just don't understand why he is such a mainstay. He continues to frustrate me, as in terms of his crossing the end product is not there, and furthermore he very rarely puts the ball in the net. We desperately need wingers who can pitch in with their quota of goals. Neither Costa or Harrison filled me with much confidence before the season started, and I'm relieved that Costa at least has now been dropped. Bielsa's system relies on decent wingers, and for me this has been a major Achilles's heel for all the time he has been manager.

Re our overall finishing, Pablo was probably our most natural finisher, as unlike most in this squad he could consistently shoot accurately from distance. Rodrigo looks like he may have similar ability, however I feel that we need to try and inject something extra into the squad to give us more of a cutting edge. Therefore why not promote Gelhardt and Greenwood to the bench in the near future ?
