Yes, I wasn't intending to add to the hyperbole. I just think it is interesting to compare seasons in different ways, as seasons often have distinct phases to them based on things like form and player availability etc. When we played Southampton away last season the circumstances were very different, for example. The stand out feature at the start of last season was our defending, the number of clean sheets we kept and that we often grinded our way to victories without always looking very convincing. This season has a different vibe so far. We are a bit looser but look more dangerous. Ultimately, as long as we win, I don't care.We didn't concede a goal in the first 3 games, but as the chart shows we did concede goals against the same opposition.
Goals Against so far we have matched last seasons effort if you go fixture to fixture.
Don't get me wrong I'm still dissapointed we have let the goals in but we are not as far off defensively as the hyperbolic media would have us believe.
