Contenders ready? Six games – so good so far…


Third in the table. Two points off the top. Goal difference two below the leaders. Six games in the league and only two goals conceded. Already played Arsenal and Chelsea. What’s not to like?

If we are title contenders as everyone else seems to think we are – then we’re in the mix. Last weekend saw us go up against Chelsea and take a point – that’s not a bad result any way that you look at it. With the Manchester clubs floundering and the title race wide open, it’s a good time to look at how we’ve done so far and what we’ve got coming up.

I’ve written before about how we have a team that need playing time. We have a wealth of options (everywhere but up-front we need another striker) and AVB is changing the team around to suit. The players are learning the tactics as well as the way they play together and for a start like this it’s a pretty good achievement.

Add to this the fact that we have a good run of fixtures until November when it gets a little more heated but I’m impressed – things are shaping up nicely. Do I think we’re title contenders? No. I think we lack the ability to deliver a knockout punch and Soldado hasn’t quite hit the ground running as I would have liked. He’ll come good though I’m confident of that. It’s early days but so good so far.

I think we’ve got the makings of a good season ahead of us. If we get good results this month and play as we know we’re capable of in November we have a good position to defend for December – that’s when we’ll know.

So how do you think we’re doing? Are we contenders? Are we showing we have the potential? Will we achieve it?

I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Contenders…? No. Let's just go great guns and see who is above us. We don't need another striker unless it is one out, one in… Can't see that happening unless Defoe pushes for move.

  2. Refreshing to see a fellow Indian support the lilywhites and not chelsea or man u.For me the title is decided depending how we play the non title contenders.Winning those 28 home n away fixtures gives us 84 which is slightly unrealistic cause we will have slip ups but then again I don’t expect to lose all our matches against the top 6 teams

  3. Agree wholeheartedly with Eric. We have only dropped points against other CL contenders – and there are 5 of them. Even Citeh and Manure are dropping points off the lower teams – we haven´t so far. This is so important

  4. Before we talk about winning title, how about finishing in top 4 first! Then 3rd/2nd….THEN I'd believe we can go further.

  5. See what happens in after December. Title is not a priority but top four is. This year we go all out for treble in the cup competitions.

  6. Periods in the first half against Chelsea we were unstoppable, but at the end of the day its all about consistency. certainly we are amoungst the top two most watchable teams. Should be 3rd or 4th this season.
