I had started to daydream about top 4 I admit. I just thought we looked like we had midfield sorted and had added an elite chance creator in James.
Reality is were a way off aren't we.
The disappointing lack of pressing remains from the 442, even if we are now cramming another cm onto a three who doesn't seem to have a specific job regardless of who plays there other than leave Allan gaps to fill.
We've struggled when missing players but v United that was one player odd what most would say is our strongest 11.
We need more depth, we need more quality. We need to see a bit from Carlo really in terms of implementing a style on the team. This talk of we have no style we simply change... It's bullshit, we do have a style it's just not very good and relies on individual performances at the moment.
Expectation for me is I think probably 7th/8th now. I want to see progress still, but it's hard to feel to enthusiastic when you see the idea of a project being abandoned for instant success, and success ceiling for us looking like 7th.
