Differences in games are generally very tight.
It doesn’t take a great uplift in form/ confidence/ whatever and players suddenly look very different.
As with the team overall, it’s easier to just be organised and not have much ambition.
The big hurdle for us as a club/ team and the individual players by extension, is the ability to dominate games while still being solid.
We’re expected to do that (and more) and that puts pressure (witness general perception of Watford is that they’re having a great season and are great to watch. Having just beat us are only 4 pts ahead) onto something that is difficult if you don’t have the manager/ players of the teams at the very top.
