I've said before that I think playing out from the back is effective if you have better players than your opponents, but pure fools gold if your players are no better than the opposition. When a poor team does it, it always looks like a pretentious affectation rather than a means of improving...
I remember Charlton were up there for the first 5 or 6 matches of last season, and I've been waiting for Reading to fade away like Charlton did.
However, they keep winning. They can lose their next 2 and they'll probably still be top.
So when do we start think of them as genuine title contenders?
