It's Still In Our Hands

It's Still In Our Hands

Alex McLeish has said Premiership survival remains in our hands following the draw against WBA today.

Speaking to the Official Site Eck said overall he was satisifed with the days achievement:

'A point is better than non and that was a tough game. It was never going to be easy and I thought the boys gave absolutely everything and we had chance - we just couldn't get it between the sticks. It's still in our hands and we have two games to go. If we can win those two games then that's six points. One of the players in our dressing room will get the goal that matters for us, I am positive of that.'

The game certainly had a few talking points, and McLeish was quick to praise Shay Given for his late heroics to secure us a point:

'He has made a name for himself making saves like that.'

McLeish also had praise for the returning Richard Dunne:

'Richard is a leader, he had a brilliant performance - he headed everything, he read the play, he calmed the players down - it was a real top performance.'

I think whilst everyone was pleased with the point - because it was at least something - we are still far from being a happy camp.

The Anti McLeish demo needs to be postponed - we need to be safe first. Tomorrows a big day...lets hope Chekski win...because is QPR then get nothing against Stoke either and we get at least a point off Spurs, then we are safe

We haven't taken 6 points in 2 consecutive games yet this season. We haven't even taken 6 points in a *month* since January. Yet magically we're going to do that to close the season?

There's plenty of rumours he's a dead man walking - lets all hope that this is the case come the end of the season!

********* bigolbeat and kefkat, the Mcleishout day should go ahead, not everyone is gonna join in but those who will are gonna try there hardest, im gonna make my voice heard...The players should grow some balls and just play and not use our protest as an excuse...Last home game and we are going to show that ***** what we think about him...It's okay saying the team needs our support but when it's given they play exactly the same anyway? ********* to it, they will be cheered, the boos will be at Mcleish. Cannot wait, finally get rid of my season ticket when it goes on the pitch.

It's very clear from recent comments that McLeish is gone at seasons end, waste of a season as we all knew he was the wrong man. I just can't wait to see who the new man is and we can all get behind him and be a united club once more. My money is on Martinez and I'd have Poyet as backup
