Sullivan’s win/lose theory on the money

David-Sullivan-001David Sullivan admits he wasn’t the least bit surprised by the team’s defeat at Watford claiming it merely backed up a private theory he has held for a while.

He said: “I have a theory that if you win big you lose the next game. We won against Arsenal and were then poor against Leicester.

“After our ‘big win’ over Chelsea, the defeat therefore wasn’t such a surprise to me.¬†It seems that all our defensive errors this season are punished by goals. I’ve never know anything like it.”

Speaking to the official site he added: “That said and done, to have 20 points on the board after 11 games is still a great start to the season.

“The other week Newcastle had a big result beating Norwich 6-2 at home and then lost to Sunderland.¬†Sunderland then have a big win over Newcastle and then lose to Everton.

“I am now hoping that Everton’s big win over Sunderland might see them lose against us next weekend.”

  1. Umm – what a load of garbage!

  2. Going by Chelsea’s current position and their result against Liverpool i’m not even convinced beating Chelsea is winning big…The next game against Everton is our most important game so far this season, if we lose, the momentum will be be gone and we rarely get much from Everton..

  3. So Sam allardyce is responsible for the fact we beat big teams and lose against small ones. I thought so.

  4. Not saying we haven’t played well against the big teams but In hindsight we have played all these so called big boys at vulnerable times when they weren’t at their best or even close to it. Not saying we’ve been lucky but it’s time we started hammering some of these lesser teams starting with Everton and then moving on to giving Spurs a right good thumping.
