From poor starts to a season, relegation campaigns sometimes emanate.
After waiting so long to get back into the top-flight of English football, the last thing that we need is for the club to be involved in a relegation scrap.
But, unless the club can quickly start to add to their paltry tally of five points earned this season, that could be exactly the outcome.
Today, Slavisa Jokanovic held his pre-match press conference ahead of the clash with Arsenal, on Sunday, during his chat with the journalists, Slavisa admitted that the start to the season has not been good enough, remarking:
“We cannot be satisfied with this spell during this first seven games, it’s huge room ahead of us to improve and we must try and work hard to fix all our problems.”
Continuing, Slavisa went on to discuss our poor defensive record, a record that has seen the side concede a division high of 16, with the Serbian remarking:
“One of these is conceding so many goals and we are working in this direction to try to find a solution.”
Perhaps, the re-introduction of a fit-again Alfie Mawson can assist us with that particular problem.
But, with improvement urgently needed, Slavisa spoke about the level the side is operating at, further adding:
“This is not our best level…we need to be more ambitious and need to show more aggression and more speed.”
Step forward Tom Cairney, your stage awaits you.
