Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

4 points off 8th is also a weird metric. 7th is the target so the correct metric is 8 points off of 7th. Chasing down 8 points is not easy. You have to win a lot AND rely on 7 other teams all dropping points all the time. That's statistically very difficult, especially when you're garbage and only just managed to fluke yourself out of 19th place.

It's not intended as a metric or a target. It's an illustration of how tight the league is and how easy it would be to climb it, with any semblance of decent form.

Totally get what youre saying, but I would say other than palace weve played the worst football this season, weve not had 1 good performance and have to manage without a striker, and a lack of options at the back until Jan, I too think we'll be fine and finish in a respectable position, but weve been shite and have a number of problems

All true, and we're STILL only 4 points off 8th.

Not sure I'm having it personally. Sounds unlikely.

Dortmund pretty much told anyone who would listen this weekend that they would part with Aubameyang.

17 goals in 19 league matches this year.
31 goals in 31 matches last year.

Probably cost 50% more than what we sold Lukaku for.

Allardyce

Wouldn't want Benteke. Hoping for much more mobility.
