Good footy is winning footy

Easy to say that after the event.

It's when we lose playing like this that the test of fans' feelings comes.

Certain teams you can set out or just win. Other teams you need to try and dominate. Liverpool at Anfield you just need to stifle, Swansea at Goodison you want to be dominating.   Rely on a penalty away at a team that aims to smash everyone to pieces, but let's not do that against the utter shite in the league too.

Not against the teams we should be looking to break in amongst though.

There’s a fine line though when you’re playing shite but picking up points. Eventually you’ll stop getting the breaks, players will drift out of form and narrow wins can easily become narrow losses if there’s no substance behind your play.

Sooner rather than later we do need to see some evidence of progression with the ball.

I think there's been a big turn around from the performances under Koeman and Unsworth. The more points we pick up the more confidence will build and we'll be more expansive in possession. Even yesterday if was refreshing to see players trying to play forward at every opportunity.
With regards the little bits of luck, well it's about time. Most other teams don't even acknowledge they're  lucky, they just accept it and move on.

Right anyway.

So what we want is winning football. And we want beautiful football as well. Got it.  I think some will be disappointed though.

We have though.

Granted we're not controlling games as we'd like and there are still a lot of aimless balls up the pitch, but there's been some good stuff in the midst of it all.

There was decent period yesterday to be fair where we were knocking it around letting Swansea chase shadows. But they were a poor team. And we did also move the ball forward quite well. It's just not quite there though. Needs more oiling. I do think a settled team will continue to help.

Two good goals against Huddersfield, two good pieces of passing moves to win penalties yesterday and a ten pass move to score against Newcastle and not a long ball in sight.
If you take the goals in isolation the only sign of a long ball was Rooney's pass to DCL for the penalty in the derby, and that was hardly a lump up-field.
Ram has a point.

You don't go from getting shagged 4-1 by Southampton to 1970's Brazil in two months.
