I think people are over rating good starts. Was it last year or the year before that Palace failed to win or score in their first 7 games and they were dead certs to go down, yet they finished comfortably mid table. Same with us last year, bad run of early fixtures and that 9-0, we were down, comfortably mid table. Norwich had a good start and people were saying they would stay up, comfortably one of the worst records of relegated teams in recent years. Sheff Utd another good example, tipped for Europe but faded. Leeds, Villa and Everton have made good starts, that is it, long season and form can change, those teams have IMO plenty of weaknesses (I mean is Everton's defence good enough for top 6? with their awful GK, I am not sure). When we have seen people play 15-18 games maybe, but 5 or 6, nah.
