    Our defence

    can't be as bad as some make out. There are only six teams in the Prem who have conceded less than us.

    Citeh, Manure, L'pool, Chelski, Spuds and Burnley.

    And considering the number we conceded during the absence of Lascelles then a better ratio would be on the cards.

    That is actually impressive.

    Didn't know that, if only we'd had a striker who could score.

    I think that's typical of Rafa to steadily build from the back and then get more adventurous as the team strengthens.

    Oh for a decent owner who would give him solid backing.

    Agreed - I think most of us can see the long term prospect in having Rafa here. Sort out the defence, then the midfield (Diame anyone?) and hopefully with Slimani up front teams will fear our attacking threat as well.
