    Well played Soton, deserved that. Some of the Arsenal players looked like they enjoyed their NYE a little too much. Weren't at the races at all.

    Been to many home games this year, I'm finding this disparity in form odd, can't work it out really. It's not down to us being negative hence just hitting on the break, we always look to go forward 43? games since a goaless draw. Very odd.

    We just seem to miss a lot of chabces at home, but are clinical away.
    We had one shot on target today...

    I wonder if it's down to us being better at carving out chances when a defence gives us more space to run in behind, rather than sitting deeper as they may do at home, and then picking us off on the counter-attack...?

    Don't see us enough at home to comment...

    Yeah, but we were down to 10-men for much of the match. Oh well let's hope we can turn it around at home, I really like Keohane BTW reckon he's better than Sercs.

    Edit, just seen the goal, yeah silly, but TBF, 2 city players were putting pressure on him, which is decent in the 83rd minute, down to 10 men for a while.

    Even with 11 men, we had plenty of ball and carved out all of zero clear chances. I'm not sure Cureton did anything about from get himself caught offside once. It was all keep-ball-and-wait, which is fine, but with men behind the ball like we'll face at SJP, I can see how we don't get through... and then get hit on the counter.

    Oh there's no doubt it's partly that, but we were all over Oxford until they got their goal, and Curo's two misses against the slime, will always be in my mind.

    Do think it's getting a bot psychological.

    I don't think Coventry were that bad to be honest - finishing was abysmal though - could've had 4 or 5 on another day.

    Fans around me were dreadful though and didn't have a clue about the laws regarding what a foul is.

    Darn, if i'd have known someone else off here was there i'd have met for a beer in the casino.

    Their finishing was woeful at times, add in the fact they shot from 25 yards every chance they had and they wasted so many opportunities. Made me chuckle their fans singing anti Villa songs and they have the double done over them by little old Salop.

    Sturridge officially a LFC player. If he gets 7-8 goals till the end of season he'll have done well for us.
