Our players are people right? People get influenced of what happens around them, right? So we haven't won the league since god knows when but we have been looking well awesome all year and even won games we didn't look odds on to win. Played poorly at times still managed to get the win. We are in the front seat with everything to lose at the moment. Then we lose a game away against the perhaps best team in the league, no harm done. Then we lose against a team we'd normally beat with our best players in the FA Cup fielding a weakened side. Kinda no harm done. However if we lose the next away to Brighton in what is a must game win for a title aspiring team, then things are suddenly not looking as rosy as they did say 10 days back. This has nothing do to with Virgil or Milner not being great leaders on the pitch, it's human nature and especially in a club that has grown very accustumed to NOT winning the league this game could become nervy. I see absolutely nothing wrong with this statement and even if we should go out and give them a heavy beating and all is back to beeing good this COULD potentially have been the start of a prologned dire run. Personally I think we have got the quality needed to overcome this hurdle come Saturday even with a decimated back-line but this is a potential banana-skin game and if you don't agree we'll simply have to disagree.
