After spending £80m we have fewer points than we had at the same stage last season.
With Man City next up we could very likely be just two points from the bottom three, we seem to be going backwards, sleepwalking in to a relegation battle.

True, but on the flip side, excluding the Brentford game (not in Premier last year), when you compare this year's results to last year's against the opponents we have played, we are up by 3 points compared to last season.

Stats are funny, huh?

Haha. Back to this again.

Benteke played fantastic today. He scored our only goal and should've scored two. Are you really going to criticise him?

Please.

I'm getting sick of my OWN voice on this now. Perhaps I'll just let PV do the talking, who AGAIN stated how impressed hew as with CB.

The bottom line is if we continue to play 433; Edouard has to be the CF, he is better than Benteke, and will score 20+ goals if he stays fit, Benteke will get 10/12, he is missing to many chances, as he has done, yes, he is good in the air, but wont convert enough chances.

Benteke “fantastic”??!! He was given so many opportunities, and totally fluffed the chances on the deck one on one with the keeper. I do see some good link up with Edouarde though, but it’s either 4-4-2 or it won’t work

It's a lot of 'could have's at the moment.

Benteke could have scored three today.

Sorry Benteke should have scored three and could have scored 6. The first half header and the 1on 1 both have to go in.

In any case I am still a glass half full. We are playing really well and just need some good fortune to go our way. I will settle for another draw next week. I am looking forward to cheering the boys on. I’m sure we will give it a real go.

I don't know if he is a good manager, Tactician, motivator or not, nor do you, time will tell, Nice obviously thought he wasn't good enough

In our first 9 games we have played 8 from the top 12, our next two our against 2nd and 10th, yes we should be 8 points better off, but we have a new manager new players and mistake will happen, and they have.

Lets see where we are after 19.

Should have killed this game, they scored a great goal but we should have put this one to bed. Tekkers seems to have got the fire back in his belly. He was really unlucky not to have a hat trick today.

The ref was awful not just his general decision making but time allowed in injury time. He played 2 minutes in the first half and the Luka stoppage was at least 3 to 4 minutes. There should have at least been 5 minutes of injury time alone in the first half. Fair play to Newcastle they parked the bus and played for the point!

I think he does and I am happy with the progress being made, we certainly have not had the rub of the green so far, but you can see we are going in the right direction. The only decision I think he got wrong was away at Arsenal making that substitution Edourd for Tomkins where we had Arsenal where we wanted them.

I think Tekkers was hero and villain, he scored a good goal and was unlucky with an overhead kick and a header that hit the bar as well as the VAR 'goal' but he also missed two sitters that im sure Edouard would have buried and it cost us in the end

Hope he becomes a legend, alongside Bert Head and Steve Coppell

I wrote a post a little while ago where I suggested that Benteke's acquisition has held us back; a large sum was invested in his transfer fee and salary so much so that there was nothing left in the kitty for back up. Indeed, Roy was pushed at one point to experiment with Zaha and Townsend up front! Ironically we lucked out on a cheapo signing, Ayew, who when given the opportunity scored more in one season than Benteke in three, this in a Hodgson team not at that point renowned for creating bucketloads of chances.
To the present, we make a clear statement with the acquistion of Edouard, who one presumes is to be our centre forward moving on. Except that PV is making the same mistake as Hodgson, putting square pegs in round holes to accomodate Benteke.
To cut a long story short, Benteke isn't good enough to be the main man, too many appalling misses that are well catalogued by his statistical return over the seasons.
