I think we're in a better place than the others as we have a solid defence. When Kane is back the goals will come. Without Kane we don't have enough.
Is Kané going to come back strong, though? This is my main worry.

We only have ourselves to blame for that Im afraid, when you have 72% of the ball and most of the chances and cant see a team off it falls on our shoulders as a failure.
Fair enough, we did have chances to win it. I wasn't trying to deflect blame of us but something about West Brom and the pride and effort they take in playing us and then the following week not match that intensity and drive to the following team is annoying.

This is true. But considering we botched it, things have played out ok for us.
It's interesting if we were playing tomorrow on MNF and we missed the chance to go top then we'd say it's a missed opportunity but cause we played first we say we got quite lucky.

True.

Even with Kane back we still need to work on our width in possesion. e have good ball players in the middle, but if we can create some width with GKN and the full backs, Kane and Vince will benefit.

We had seriously strong wing play with Bale and Lennon, but no striker; now it's the other way around. Hope Poch can see this and implement width into his Plan B.

Agree even Eddie howe said he was more happy with the result against us rather than the 6-1 win the previous week.
It seems we are becoming a scalp, target for many teams which could be viewed as a mark of respect.

Fellaini playing as a second striker is laugh out loud funny. Mourinho truly is special:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
