From what I saw last night, we are currently behind Man Utd and Wolves. Add into that Spurs, City, Liverpool and Arsenal, that leaves us once again fighting as best of the rest, including Chelsea and Leicester at the moment. Said before season start, that League progress would be finishing at best 7th. Long hard season ahead.

Wow, that is some leap of doom you have made right there?

Just so I'm clear, on the basis of one game between 2 teams who are not Everton on the 2nd weekend of a football season. You now know it will be a long hard season? Really?

Are you ignoring the fact that most teams play better against better opposition, us included?

Or that judging 2 teams level based on a match between them with no other form to qualify the standard of said two teams is simply ridiculous?

Are we behind them because they play prettier football?

Can you quantify how you think we are behind Man U and wolves? Particularly as were level on points with Man U and 2 points ahead of wolves
Think you need to reassess either after 10 games or so or when we’ve actually played any of the so called top 6.

That is just a plain daft no one can possibly know where we will end up, we have to give it at least till after the Chiistmas period to see ourselves and all the others before any sort of judgement can be made, incidentally because Chelsea are near the bottom of the league now does it mean they will finish outside the top Seven, I think not, let's chill out for a while.

I will reassess of course GingerDan etc! . Our performance against Watford was not the best as some of those at the game will attest to particularly 2nd half. Plus's Moise is going to be some player for us, Mina (I am pleased) is proving me wrong. My opinion watching other Teans games is that currently we will do well to finish 7th. That is improvement and of course, I want us to hopefully finish in the top 6. Is that better. Your rose tinteds are steamed up.

Well like I have said before it all comes down to winning games and scoring goals looking at our team can see us struggling dcl ain’t a prolific goal scorer Walcott again not doing enough so pressure on kean sigg of the boil Richarlison hope gets a few with all this I can see top 8.

I just don't understand how you came to this conclusion. What exactly did you see last night that shows we are worse than Wolves and UTD?
Wolves have been vastly outplayed in large parts of both matches (Leics and UTD) . They do have some quality there and are capable of punishing a team out of nowhere, but on the whole they do not look like a team to fear.
Utd are looking decent enough and cannot be taken lightly, but also do not look like a team who can seriously challenge at the top. If a defense stay strong and eliminate counter attacks then Utd look like a team who will pick up a tonne of draws and not so many wins.
At this juncture, to think that we are so far behind those 2 teams either shows a deliberate attempt to slag off our club or a complete lack of reading a game.

Totally agree Worcester mate, my Brother is a Woves supporter and he also said they were riding their luck for most of last nights game and only drew because of Pogba missing a penalty, absolute nonsense from Dfs.

Guys. To be fair to DFS we are all making a few predictions- where we will finish etc and he has done just the same, albeit a lees optimistic one. I don’t agree with DFS but that’s just opinions. I think Wolves for all their endeavour last season will be different due to Thursday games.

United were superior but not unbeatable. And we have Goodison. Molinoux is no where near as intimidating.

1 nil to the Arsenal, not pretty but we all know how boring and unattractive that football was, however you do not get bonus points for silky play so judging a team after two games is crazy.

I have seen Everton play some great football and come away with a draw.

We are unbeaten, will get better, but picking points up early doors is an added bonus.

I agree Big Nev, under Martinez we would batter teams, then be left with a kick in the crown jewels (2-2 vs Arsenal, 3-4 vs Stoke) . 4 points, 2 clean sheets and all with virtually no minutes for our new signings, i think we have made a great start. also playing well isn't just about scoring goals, the boys have been great at the back.

Ducksfly, not sure about the tinted glasses to Ginger, he is going off 2 games, no losses and no goals conceded, any team that is not firing on all cylinders yet come away undefeated is a big positive.

The only team in the premiership yet to concede a goal.

Add to that the new signings who are still getting up to speed which will only improve and make the team stronger still.

We all have a moan when we lose but for the time being enjoy the ride while it lasts.

I am with Ginger and a few more posters, along with Ed25 who can see the green shoots of recovery.

Knock Everton when they are down, but at least give them credit for the run in form, since-the turn of the year after the cup defeat.

This was a ridiculous post ducks mate. Its one game. One game. I believe we will finish above Wolves.

Couldn't agree more blue tit. Basing it on one game is ludicrous billscrocdiletears. Our new signings have barely played and some of our better players haven't been great so far but we have 4 points from 2 games. We, like most teams to be fair, will improve as the season goes on so to be making doom and gloom precictions at this stage is stupid.

Ridiculous post we are not behind them, I have not seen anything from Utd to suggest they are any better, wolves are a very good team and had a great season but I think playing in Europe will have an effect on them at some point in the season, our major problem last season was what Marco picked upon that December to February was our most costly period in terms of pts picked up, the Liverpool defeat was damaging as we did not recover from that game even though the performance was good and it was ironic that the following fixture spurred us on to some great performance s and results. We need to convert more of our chances to win more games, we had joint 3rd most clean sheets with 14 and have 2 so far this season so defensively I think we are pretty solid.
I think top 4 is not going to happen but top 6 is a yes from me this season.

hows this looking now? man united now off to an average at best start? and wolves (so be it have had the demands of europe hinder them abit) only have three points on the board?
