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.

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!

O'Leary got to 42 points.

Trouble is I can well see Bournemouth beating Newcastle midweek.

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



If Liverpool are remotely interested I think theyíll give us a belting.

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.

They are missing Calum Wilson who's suspended and Josh King might still be injured. Won't be many goals in that one, 0-0 could be the bet.

This. Confidently predicting we will have more kick offs than shots.

I am now worrying what the summer will bring and will the club somehow manage to make things worse.

This is why Iíve pretty much lost faith in DS. Itís not like itís small margins costing us either itís errors so basic that a Sunday pub team would be embarrassed. Look at the capitulation against Arsenal, the marking at set pieces where on several occasions heís openly admitted we got these wrong due to poor communication, the lack of possession in virtually every game we play, the consistently dreadful way we start 2nd halves, the stubborn persistence with 4-4-3 and belatedly poor use of substitutions.

People have a crack at Wesley for not getting up to speed but our poorest performer so far this season has been Dean Smith imo. Heís 2 games to save his job, I hope he still can but the time for excuses and learning from mistakes has passed.

Looking through this thread (around page 70) itís interesting to see how this all evolved as well as posters views. My 2 games to save himself were Norwich and Watford away. Thatís when he should have gone. Iím convinced itís cost us our PL place.

Last year, Sweet Caroline. This year Sweet F.A.

Gave up worrying about the Villa many years ago. Trying to live longer.  :)

We shouldn't worry about things that are so far out of our control, but focus on the positives

At least we don't need to play LPool and listen to their fan's trauma of a year of hurt of not winning the league for a year. bless them

That's a more of an annual concern.
Even if we we had finished midtable ( yes I'm getting help!), I'd still expect them to balls it up for next season.  :D

Starting to worry we have for the third time in a row managed to attract stupid owners. Stick with Smith next season and will be more worried.
