I would take 6 games with Colin Wanker in charge right now.

My worry now is, that we will get an absolute shoeing against 'The Mighty Reds YNWA'.

For all his faults (and there were many), Ellis would not have allowed this situation to be prolonged - he would have fired Dean before Christmas. Not sure why Purslow and the owners are so reluctant to pull the trigger, especially given their stated goals for the club.

It could be something to do with the new contract Smith was given. Smith gets until the end of the season and if we're relegated we can cut him loose easier.

He didn't sack Taylor.

If Liverpool are remotely interested I think they’ll give us a belting.

Which like the last time we got relegated, will probably be the point where the whole lot of them down tools completely and write it off as a bad job.

Pretty bad if we can't even reach 30 points in a premier league season.

38 was usually a sacking offence. It's what O'Leary, McLeish and Lambert all finished on in their final full seasons here.

With Watford again losing 30 points will probably be pretty close to staying up!

Meanwhile whilst we are all staring at our shoes, feeling sorry for ourselves and looking out for our championship fixtures (me included), Watford continue to slide! 1 win in 10.  Wednesday is now massive, Bournemouth must be looking at Newcastle at home as the ‘must win’ for them. We will lose at Liverpool, no doubt, but if we can get past that and Bournemouth don’t beat Newcastle, West Ham don’t beat Chelsea, this is far from over, however poor we are. If we can get past the Man Utd game only 1 or 2 points max behind those three, it really is all to play for with palace, Everton, arsenal and West Ham to come. It’s going to be who is the most shit.

Can't say we haven't had enough chances to get out of bottom 3 in last two weeks. Watford remain 1 point above us. Chelsea away for them next. They've also still to play Man. City at home so hopefully two more losses at least for them in the run in.

O'Leary got to 42 points.

Trouble is I can well see Bournemouth beating Newcastle midweek.

If we let them have the ball it will 5-0 to them. If we go at them and at least try, the speed in which they break it might be 5-1.

I will be very surprised if Liverpool don't get at least 5 or 6 against us.
