Lets look at just how many points we have lost or gained due to goals after the 80th minute.
These are the games affected –
Fulham A – lost one point
Norwich City H – Lost two points
Man Utd H – Lost one point
Reading H – Gained two points
Swansea A – Lost two points
West Brom A – Lost two points
Everton A – Lost two points
Arsenal A – Lost one points
So there we are in 8 games we have lost a net 9 points due to late goals. We do not have to be reminded just how important those 9 points are which would have left us in comfortable relaxed 11th place.
Just how many points we have lost after taking the lead would I think be another 4/5 points and therefore be challenging for top 8. Now does that mean the team is vastly under performing or something drastically wrong with losing so many ?
Of course every team loses points to late goals but some will balance it up with points gained. Our tallies are so one sided though ….
