Form/Positives & Where Will Points Come From?

Form/Positives & Where Will Points Come From?

Where will the 40 points come from? By Revua

As we know 40 points is nearly guaranteed to bring you safety so I've tried to realistically judge how we will fair in our remaining fixtures. Obviously we might make some great signings that turn our season round and all this is obviously guess work but I think it`s a fair prediction based on if we played each game tomorrow. I'm sure many I will have down for wins that we will lose and loses that we will win. I will be interested in how others think we will get on in these games.

Chelsea Away= Lose - 0

Sunderland Home - Draw - 1

Birmingham Away - Draw - 1

Many City Home - Lose - 0

Wigan Away - Draw - 1

Man Utd Away - Lose - 0

Fulham Home - Win - 3

Blackpool Away - Draw -1

Blackburn Home - Win -3

Bolton Away - Lose -0

Wolves Home - Draw -1

Everton Away - Lose -0

Newcastle Home - Draw -1

West Ham Away- Win -3

Stoke Home - Draw -1

West Brom Away - Lose -0

Wigan Home - Win -3

Arsenal Away - lose -0

Liverpool Home - Lose -0

Total 39 points

I think it shows the next three games we need to take 4 points to give us a chance. Surely its best to hold off any major transfer spending until after the blues game. I agree with getting this young French lad and any others that don't cost the world. If we have not had a win by the blues game we need to move on and back a new manager with transfer funds to get us out of this mess. Maybe we can win the next three game and the whole place will feel a lot different.

Its a more competitive premiership this year, we will need 42/43 points to stay up. We are much better than this and are capable of still getting to 50 points with a swift change at the top.

Only 1 problem Revua - we sack the manager after the blues game - we then need a manager in in 24 hours (who?) then he has to evaluate who he needs and get them in and who should go and all that in a space of a couple of days - Jeez buying and selling and managing a club must be so easy - it just takes a couple of minutes to buy a player - get his medical - agree terms - sign him - put him in the team and bob's your uncle - instant success!

You guys are ******** nuts. We are not going to be anywhere near relegated and will finish top 8.
31/12/2010 09:48:00
I'm actually rather annoyed how literal people take this. Stop being so dramatic.
31/12/2010 09:49:00
You have us taking 4 points from the 4 following HOME games : Sunderland, Wolves, Newcastle, Stoke........way off in my opinion.....our home form since GH took over is 2W, 3D, 2L against stronger competition (CHE,UTD, MANU, ARS, BIRM, WBA, SPURS)! Our away form has been awful no doubt but we will end the year around 45-48 points.
31/12/2010 10:07:00
I'm sorry los angeles but your nuts have you seen the way we are playing? with wolves, fulham, west ham, all starting to pick up points the only way is down with frenchie in charge. we need to sack him after we get smashed by chelsea and get someone else in.
31/12/2010 10:11:00
revua i'm getting a bit shirty at your lack of confidence... I really feel that you should leave your pessimism at home. some of your predictions are flat out rubbish.
31/12/2010 10:17:00
Zarch we have 20 points from 19 games and to say that we will get another 20 points from our next 20 games is about right in my book. We have 4 points from the last 7 games and only 13 from the last 14 games since frenchie has been in charge. So where do you think the points are going to come from? The horrible truth is that we are in the poo and need a change and we need it now the players are not behind frenchie, most of the fans are not behind him either, his transfer record is pretty pants (going on about ronaldo what a load of rubbish). So if you think he is going to buy us out of trouble your deluded. And if he was given a load of cash in transfer window and we still went down then it could be a leeds all over again. GET RID NOW

Don't often agree with Revua, but on this occassion I don't think he's far wrong. Its impossible to look at fixtures in cold isolation and say who we will and won't beat. Leaving aside unexpected things like Champs league hangovers, teams resting players for cup ties, injuries, suspensions etc, you also have to factor in momentum. At present we have no momentum and as I said in an article pre xmas our next points could realistically be Fulham at home. However if the Sunderland team that turns up is the one that lost the other day and we beat them then that might be the lift we need to get a win at the sty and then five points from the next three games is possible giving us momentum as we hit a stretch of winnable games. If we lose against Sunderland or scrape a draw then it could be a measly 2or 3 points in the bag by the time we play fulham rather than 11. We need a catalyst and if we start winning games we should have enough in the tank to pull clear. If we reach Fulham with only another three points the rest of the season looks bleak.
31/12/2010 10:54:00
What I'd be interested to see is a league table starting from the the 4th or 5th game of the season, since GH took over. I imagine that we'd be bottom?
