What a performance. Best show at one for ages.
Iím not bothered about only scoring 2 from 29 shots. At least we made the chances. What about when Wilf nearly broke the bar?
What is so good with that team is that they are all having a pop. On another day it could easily have been 4 or 5.
Just the rub of the green in my opinion.
Walking away after the game we were discussing what we need to buy in January and not sure who would fit in to such a balanced team. What a brilliant dilemma.
What an amazing feeling. We are looking great.
All 11 players looked fantastic.
Would like to see Wan start joining the shooting party a bit more.
Happy days.

A much needed and fully deserved victory.A terrific performance.Very well done.

Parish was grinning like a Colgate toothpaste model after the game.

He knows weíll be safe, but thatís as long as we donít lose Wilf or Dann doesnít recover and one of Sakho or Tomkins are injured for any length of time. Also throw in the striker shambles since this false number 9 tactic wonít work at home vs as many as weíd like.

Most of this isnít Royís fault and I take my criticism back, unless we get back to lack of ideas again somehow. However he could have emphasised to Parish how much we need a proper 2nd striker but how much Roy wanted Sorloth I donít know. (He can come good imo but we put ourselves in situations we need form quickly)

True, all 11 players were fantastic, but before the game I looked at the threat of our bench and theirs and theirs was better ironically, as most are. Thatís why we should never get carried away, because we donít know when weíll be playing with one arm and leg.

This is our most dangerous problem. Even if we got a proper goal poacher we still only have a good first 11 and no back up.

Kelly is a reasonable stop-gap in place of Tompkins, maybe Ward for AWB and that's all we have.

Not sure I agree with this tbh.

We're stretched right now because we already have injuries. We're missing our first and second choice striker and our back up centre half but we're starting to figure out this system and play well regardless.

That's why our bench looks a bit thinner right now, but overall I still think the squad is stronger than it has been for awhile.

That bench with even one of Benteke or Wickham on it would look a lot different.

Much needed 3 points and on the the back of the point at United. The confidence is returning, but with another 7 games coming we will be proper stretched with injuries and suspensions. We need a striker in January for sure and before anyone else says ď they arenít out thereĒ how comes a majority of clubs in the Premier have more than one on the pitch or on the bench?

A great performance all over the pitch yesterday, but in the pleasure/relief of finally seeing Meyer show what he can really do, I think Kouyate's contribution to the team might have been a bit overlooked, I thought he was MOTM yesterday.

Luka and Jimmy in the middle together didn't work because defensively they are too similar. They are both good at going to the ball, harrying people close up. It was too easy for teams to make one pass and take them both out of the game. Kouyate looks to be much more comfortable playing the space instead. When Luka goes to close down, he fills the gaps that appear elsewhere. When PVA and AWB (and Sakho) go wandering, he drops in and covers them.

He's not Andrea Pirlo, but he generally moves the ball on quickly and lets people like Meyer and Wilf do what they're good at, it was a great ball into space to set Andros away for the second. It hasn't quite happened yet, but he does look like he's got a couple of goals in him as well.

He looks like one of those players who, similar to Cabaye, when he has a good game everyone else suddenly seems to play much better.

Iíve been going a long time and I think that must be close to being the most one sided game Iíve ever seen. Usually if you give someone a good hiding they offer something. When we beat Newcastle 5-1, they at least went 1-0 up, even when we lost up at Anfield 9-0, we hit the post and missed a penalty.
Burnley are probably counting that as a result now and will be happy they escaped with only a 2-0 defeat.

In the (hopefully) near future maybe but we cannot rely on the imminent return of Wickham or Dann. Maybe not till after the January window.

And as for Benteke, the jury is out on that one to put it lightly. Would he be prepared to be a regular impact substitute, for example?

As the broken record repeats on this forum, we would be much better off with a goalscorer in the CF position.

Hart made a number of very good saves for them, if not it would have been 6 or 7. Meyer and Jimmy Mac like to get in the box so if we keep this formation I think we'll be fine. Got to play with a bit of width, Roy sometimes plays too narrow.

I agree about shape - both last week and this. People asking how many we'd score if we had a half decent striker - well we might not be as potent - so don't change anything the formation/shape and pass is working just fine.
