It’s not impressive. We’ve taken a hammering from a poor Southampton, we’ve conceded a lead late at Liverpool, drawn against a Stoke we haven’t beaten away since 2010 and we’ve just dropped 3 points against a really bad Chelsea team that we haven’t beaten competitively for 46 years.
You can dig into the results and blame luck, you can take aim at our unfortunate injuries and you can scoff at the fixtures being relatively tough.
Or you can just call a spade a spade and say that we’re showing all the familiar traits of seasons past.
We’re choking. We’re not choking badly. As I said last week, it’s micro disappointments. But in the grand scheme of the league and hitting it hard in 2016, we’re blowing it, one week at a time....
