It seems unfair to complain after a run of three wins and a draw, especially as in that period we beat a resurgent Newcastle and the previously unbeaten leaders, Man City - but the draw at the weekend showed that there are still frailties to this team.

The appointment of AVB was supposed to herald a new era, but unfortunately it seems that the squad is still over reliant on the ageing players who have held us back from moving with the times.
