Is it possible that with a smaller squad (ie less team changes) that some of the draws may have been turned into wins?We were struggling at the end of last season. Do you remember maguire and mcgeady struggling at the business end? Cattermole was knackered for a while, grigg not fit, wyke, watmore suspect with injuries. How anyone can suggest a smaller squad than last year is beyond me like.
Unchanged line ups are usually more cohesive than those who chop and change every week.
