If people remember when we got promoted in 2003, we had lescott / Murray out for much of that season and one of the worst squads in premier league history under Jones. We still managed to beat United who were top of the league at home , beat city, draw to Liverpool amassing 7 wins at home out of 19 but managed if my memory serves me right the grand total of... 0 wins away from home. Under McCarthy I recall us beating City, United, Chelsea etc at home but how many big teams did we beat away .. I can only think of Liverpool who were under Hodgson mid table that season.

This season we beat Chelsea but had the ground been Stamford Bridge with the same players , same tactics we would have got turned over. In order of priority I'd list in terms of impact on result

1) Ability

2) Home/ away advantage

3) Motivation of players

and at a very distant 4th place tactics
