We are on the brink now. We have absolutely squeezed the pips out of our 5 goals against Norwich to stay out of bottom 3. We need MINIMUM 4 points from our next two games otherwise we will be in the horrific dog fight for the rest of the season.

17th will do for me. I think we will scrape 16th.

It's a sobering thought that we won't even be able to scrape 20 points by the halfway point.

However, it will be just the halfway point and any talk of being 'on the brink' is a bit premature.

We are on the brink of whether we will be stuck in the mire all season or have  it a little easier knocking around 15th to 12th.

If we beat Saints and Norwich at home then we'll be on 21 points after 19 games.

In a word, yes. Haven't been worried up to now, but the next three league matches define our season, so it's hard not to be. All of them are six-pointers, and we've put ourselves in a position where we now can't afford to lose any of them really.

My biggest concern right now is we're not even competing. Add to that, we look disjointed, a group of players brought in for their development rather than current ability. We overpaid massively in the summer on some players, I recall Brugge fans valuing Wesley at 7m and Saints fans thought we gave the 10m more than Targett was worth.

What has worried me most of this season is none of our front three (Wesley, El Ghazi and Trez) are anywhere near good enough and don't look like they ever will be. It's little wonder our midfield looks knackered when they're carrying them week after week.

And that is great, however there are worrying signs, 10 defeats is poor, only my opinion

Of course yes, thanks for the correction.

More and more worried. We're a mess and the odd flash apart, have been since that out-of-the-blue wowzer at Norwich City.

It's as if Dean is picking Wes to spite Jesus for buying such a pile of old shite.

Fairly worried, as we seem to be going in to a crunch time of the season a bit out of form and low on confidence, also Mings not being there to organise defence and lead the team and be vocal is a miss.

Like 99% of us I'm not impressed with Wesley but in all honesty Dean is probably picking him in the hope he somehow improves as we don't have a better alternative. Very rare teams sign someone early in Jan too, so I think we will have played 25 games or so before we have genuine competition up there.

How much influence does DS have over who we buy who calls the shots?

We signed two over the summer from Brentford so he certainly signed those two.

This reminds me of Sherwood waxing lyrical when we signed likes of Ayew and Gana and then two months later it was "nothing to do with me guv."

I do have sympathy with DS though if he really wanted Maupay but got overruled and then had Wes inflicted onto him.
