  1. The hardest game left and we desperately need something from it.
  2. Thought exactly the same thing when I saw that result. A draw would be great but looking at the table relegation could come down to goal difference so avoiding a heavy defeat is also crucial.
  3. In all likelihood Norwich are gone and Brighton are almost safe, so 4 teams trying to avoid 2 spots. On paper Bournemouth's easiest game was last night against Newcastle, their 4-1 defeat does not bode well for them. Again on paper, last night West Ham's hardest remaining game was against Chelsea, after that result and a kind run in I fancy them to now survive. Which leaves Watford, a point ahead, slightly better goal difference and on paper ( again ) 3 games you'd expect them to lose, 1 ( Norwich ) you'd expect them to win and two you wouldn't want to call. I expect us to have to win 3 to have a chance of staying up and I don't think we have the ability or fight to do it.
  4. Football throws up the occasional shock and while I'm clutching at straws maybe them having now won the title might see them underperform, though they'd really have to underperform for our lot to get anything. I'll be delighted with a point and happy to only lose by a couple.
  5. I think odds are if Smith stays we are down, I also don't see Smith been sacked.
  6. Another game with plenty of possession but never looking likely to score. We lack urgency or any sense of belief, time and again balls into the box were poorly delivered and on the occasions it was a good ball nobody was there to attack the damned thing.
  7. Just heard the commentator say Chelsea had to work for that and that Villa took them all the way, we had 16% possession in that 2nd half and Chelsea didn't look like they were trying particularly hard. If you're losing and bring on Nakamba I can only assume you are happy to lose by a narrow margin rather than risk conceding more but having a go, that attitude will take us down.
  8. Thought it was a 4.45 KO so only saw the last 20 minutes but based on that we're giving them a game. Come on Villa !
  9. I live in hope but I've just about accepted relegation, most of the goal scoring opportunities we create are for the opposition and that is going to sink us unless we start scoring, Davis isn't going to score enough and neither is Samatta stuck up there on his own, but together if we can get the ball up to them we might just have a fighting chance in a few of the games to come.
  10. In general play we looked the better team, as we often do but we got away with a ridiculous own goal and Hause and Nakamba both gave away possession cheaply in very dangerous positions, the sort of errors that cost us nearly every game. A golden opportunity to put 3 points on the board lost.
  11. How the hell that wasn't a goal to Sheffield I do not know, then again we need all the breaks we can get.
  12. This is like a pre season game, a lot will depend on how fit the players have kept themselves and maybe the absence of a crowd will remove a bit of that pressure that we don't seem to cope with very well, as we have so many goals against that are a result of school boy errors.
  13. In theory that could cause a few problems but I suppose that is par for the course at the moment.
  14. Was there ever a decision made over what to do about player contracts ? Contracts will be expired long before the season is finished.
