What I think August highlighted is that we’ll be a good side to follow on the road. At both Arsenal and Liverpool, we absorbed the pressure and counter attacked with pace and conviction. With the players we have and the way Slaven has us lined up away from home, combined with our two early away victories, I’m sure we’ll clock up some good points on our travels.
My biggest concern is that we haven’t quite got our heads around what we should be doing at home. Granted Bournemouth had been playing some nice stuff before they arrived at Upton Park - as had Leicester - but we looked vulnerable to any sort of attack and I think every visiting side will be looking forward to coming to the Boleyn to try and inflict the same pain on us.
With it being our final season at the Boleyn Ground, it would be nice to see us dominate the majority of our matches and that our home form gives us the platform to excel in the league and cups. Enjoy reading our latest issue. It’s another absolute cracker. Come on you Irons!
