It’s horrible. Makes him sound like he’s your bitch. Change it. Preferably to Iwobi. You know, his name.

Don't talk about my Wobesy like that!  :wag: >:(

You stroke his dreads whilst spooning him and calling him Wobes. There, there Wobes - you’ll get another spot in the 10 if you just keep playing well

Jealousy's not an attractive personality trait. You'd spoon the Wobester as well, if you could.

I've come around on "Wobes" - sounds like a cheeky, "puppy love" kind of nickname.

Then again, my semi-approval just makes things worse for the Wobes Brigade.  :D

I could put our mildly mediocre / fairly unpleasing start down to 2 things. Crap finishing and bad luck. That's not to say Silva shouldn't take some of the blame, but VAR has effectively taken the points from us that would leave us 5th.

BUT. We are 3 points off of 5th and are in the league cup QF, so no matter how bad results have been, it's still a chance to forget what has happened (albeit learn from mistakes), move on, and try to get a good run under our belts. A good run in December, i.e. not losing too many, should put us in a really good position for the rest of the season. Anfield could be a catalyst either way for us.

I know it is a positive spin on things, but I really do think we could still have a decent season. Norwich is a huge game for us given the horrendous run of fixtures after that.

You must have me mistaken for Big Marcel.

Because I'm currently unemployed and have nothing better to do, I took a look at all the games for matchday 13, with various outcomes. Assuming we defeat Norwich (they're 0-1-5 away with a -11 gd and have been clean sheet'd 5 times), we could be as high as 8th heading into the December gauntlet!

I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

LESS POSITIVE DATA CHAT

How is our xG spread across our games? It felt like early on in the season we were creating zero to little clear cut chances per game, since West Ham we have certainly created more but I'm still surprised it's such a high average for season to date.

Are we that awful at finishing?

There's a rolling trend line with explanation in @TheRam 's post above of the statsbomb article if you can be assed

Would rather put up good defensive numbers than attacking numbers.

Probably no basis to it but I think good defensive numbers will come through more than good attacking numbers.

More about the set up of the team, than individual players isn’t it.

Would you believe we rank 3rd in the EPL in fewest shots allowed per game? It speaks to a different problem, but our defense overall hasn't been bad.
