Nope...with 14 games to go, Iíd say that any team up to Southampton in 9th place on 31pts are all in the mix for relegation. We just need to concentrate on getting wins on the board and turning over some of the higher placed teams like the others around us have been doing.

Plenty of twists and turns left yet, I reckon.

Exactly. It only takes a drop in form and a bad run of results to get sucked right back in.

That used to be us. Heady days!

I still think 40 points will do. It might come down to GD, but at least one team will stay up with 40.

Looking at Bournemouth's remaining fixtures I can't see more than eight points, even when I squint.

It's looking (at the moment) like one from Watford, West Ham, Us and Brighton to me.

I'd say that Norwich are gone and then 2 from the next 5.

30 points for Newcastle and Burnley should be enough for them to scrape the 10 points they need from the remaining 12 games.

Still very much in our own hands and whilst it's nice to see those around us dropping points, all we really need to do is win another 4 games with a couple of draws thrown in along the way.  I say "all we need to do".  It's obviously easier said than done.  A win at Bournemouth would really go some way, leaving us needing 3 wins from our remaining home games.

I think Norwich are gonners, which leaves two places between Watford, Bournemouth, West Ham, Villa and Brighton. So it is two from any five for me. The West Ham fans are not happy which might make it difficult for the players in the run in. I think all of the other clubs have the fans behind them.

It looks that way but someone always drops. The miss from Tosun in their match makes me think it could be them. Just a hunch.

Vardy pulled up with his hamstring, came back on and then hobbled off last night.

What is wrong with these managers?

Stupid, hopefully he's  out for the semifinal.

West Ham's goal difference coming back towards ours now with Liverpool next up. They are in deep shit. Norwich still playing well but not getting results. Fair play to Burnley, we only played them a few weeks back and they were shocking. Big win for them tonight, showed a bit more backbone than we did at Old Trafford and got the points.

I was thinking g that they're better of trading the game in hand in, ad they're more likely to concede 3+ than not the way they are at the moment.

Brighton, Man City and Liverpool away their next three fixtures after the Liverpool game.

We have Bournemouth, Spurs, Southampton, Sheffield United  in that time. 5-6 points would be a decent return and probably extend us to 5-7 over West Ham with 10 to play.

Looking through the fixtures only Liverpool away looks hopeless, Spurs without their key forward and Man U at home are definitely doable, If Vardy has done  ham string they are only half a side without him.

Spurs will no doubt get a good striker in this month. We should be getting something from the Man U, Chelsea and Arsenal games for once surely?
