Incredibly, seven of our eight league defeats so far have been against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. Only the defeat at Hampton is an exception, and I felt we were exceptionally unlucky to lose that one, where a combination of missed chances while well on top and the referee's total refusal to acknowledge any of several clear holding and manhandling infringements against us inside the box while awarding Hampton a penalty at the other end.

All eight of our defeats have been by the odd goal, whereas thirteen of our eighteen wins by two goals or more. That suggests to me that some of our players may be guilty of complacency or lack of motivation against some of the lesser lights of the division.

You're always going to get the odd game against someone like VCD where the wheels fall off. Trying to put a more positive spin on it, we lost seven games in the first half of the season (the last two champions lost only six in the whole season) but VCD was our first defeat in nine since then.

Luckily no one side have proven outstanding so far, though I really feel we ought to have been capable of being that stand out side ourselves. Anything less than the championship will be an underachievement for me in this season with the squad we have and the lack of outstanding competition. I'm old school, and I want to win the League we've played in since 1907, not just promotion.
