0-0 at half time; after bring
on Adebayor we take the lead; then Defoe is taken off for a
midfielder and we concede a sloppy equaliser. Sound familiar?

|Barry Levington||I am willing to
give AVB more time to get his ideas across and for the new players
to settle in and it annoys me a bit when people boo. Last
season, under Harry Redknapp, we lost to Norwich City, this time we
got a draw. Last season under Harry Redknapp we beat WBA and
this season we drew. Results are up and down at the moment and
don't forget, other teams have strengthened too, so there is time to
get things right.
I agree that we don't want to drop too far behind the teams who are already gathering points, but even though they are two draws, we are two games unbeaten and this could be the start of a long unbeaten run.
Having said that, some things have to change. Benoit needs to defend better and stop crosses coming in form his flank, as some teams seem to have pin-pointed him as the weak link. If they do come in, we need to defend them better and that includes whoever is in goal coming for crosses.
Taking our chances still needs improving and with Dembele and Dempsey, this may happen, while the midfield have to work harder to counter any tactics to shut them down.
Hard work and application or pass and move ... call it what you will, but it worked in the past and can work again. Don't get complacent and don't hark back to last season. This is a new campaign and a new set of players and coaches.
And the most important thing is how can Levy not back him with the money he has invested in the players and back-room staff. We're not Chelsea and hopefully that will see us through.
