Okay to switch things up a bit from all the doom and gloom...

We've had a really tough opening set of fixtures.
We have signed a number of players who need to adapt.
Pretty much all of our signings are capable of more. There is no way Pickford, Keane, Sandro, Sigurdsson and Klaassen aren't much better than they have shown so far for a start.
The upcoming games should get us some points on the board.
We are still in Europe.
We've still got potentially three first teamers to come back at some point.

There's other things but let's not push it. What say you? Is it really that terrible?

Shocking how poor several of the new signings are inc Schneiderlin.

I wouldn't have expected much more than 6 pts so far with these fixtures, but the manner in which we are capitulating... what are we score line wise in the last 5 matches? Guessing 1-14? Shocking.

But it is true that things could quickly recover... how are we going to score against Burnley though?  These guys are a tough nut to crack

A set piece maybe? When you are struggling you just need that one bit of luck. Schneiderlin has not been a poor signing, he's one of a number to start the season poorly, I thought he looked better today. The signings can't be written off as poor yet and we know Sigurdsson and Keane are definitely capable of more in the Premier League.
