Late to games due to reading endless comedic posts, resulting in reduction in the atmosphere.

Your post may be tongue in cheek, but No.3 is a genuine concern

Whilst this is always going to be a huge blow for us, I actually think we could be okay if it was only short term. I have faith one of, Barnes, Perez or Kel would hit form. With the pace Barnes has, we could easily play the same way. With every letter I type im more convinced im just saying this to stop myself having nightmares.

In all seriousness, we need to create more clear cut chances especially from our wide men. I know XP goals can be misleading but we are overperforming this metric. I'm sure Brendan is devising ways to get our wingers in seriously dangerous positions more often. Teams like Arsenal are a joke defensively but score heaps of goals

We’re capable of it but won’t achieve it in my opinion because of an inferiority complex. Look at Liverpool, beyond Salah, Mane & VVD how many of their players can you say are guaranteed to walk into our 11? The goaly maybe. We’re really close to the top level, closer than even most foxes think.

Our attack isn't up to scratch relative to top 6 sides.

 

I know we scored five yesterday and we've already played a few big sides but here are the numbers:

 

We're ranked 9th for shots taken per game vs 2nd for shots conceded per game

 

On xG we rank 15th vs 2nd for total xG condeded. 

 

Not saying we won't improve but if you're looking for a reason why we won't compete with the big sides then that's it.
