We need to play with greater intensity on the road.
I didn't see the Palace game so can't comment but Villa and Bournemouth, we controlled large parts of the game but still ended up losing both both 2 goals.Controlling games, away from away especially, is a plus but it's of no use of your lacking incisiveness and quality in the final third whilst giving away poor goals at the other end.
It's simplistic but I think we just need a bit more 'rolls sleeved up' and 'lets take it to them' mentality. We aren't a bad side but every side needs to earn the right to play.
...of our opponents which is why we sometimes pull off some good results against the "stronger" teams and struggle/lose against the "weaker" teams, and I definitely think there is something in that.
The stronger/more successful teams just have the same attitude no matter who their opponents are - just steamroller them.
