This day has been coming for some time. To be honest I was astonished we stayed out of the bottom 3 as long as we did.

Bookies rarely get it wrong and we have been odds on for ages now.

Best chance is a pandemic...

Weíve ridden our luck for weeks. No complaints

Yep no one but ourselves to blame. The worst thing is the gap could be even bigger before our next league game as our game vs leicester is monday night.

No more bottle job saints performances

Agree and in fairness we couldnít produce performances against those around us but the ones around us are managing g to do it against teams in top third

Exactly. That's why Southampton was so crucial. Just a shame the players didn't think the same on the day.

I can see us finishing bottom of the table. We might get a win against Newcastle, if we turn up but apart from that I don't see us beating any of the rest.

Other teams are fighting for their lives while we have complete twats like El Khazi downing tools over a little graze.

Almost 8 months into our season and I still have no idea what Luiz actually does or what his position is?!

I love that people on here are being positive and are full of hope.  Personally, I think we're in the bottom 3 to stay now as we can't get a tune out of the players and are nowhere near physically tough enough as a side to win enough games to stay up.  Lots of 'nearly' performances but ultimately, we have been our own worst enemies so far.  Hope for the best though as I'd love to be wrong.

Nor me.
I know it was the Championship, but our 10 wins in a row streak started round now last season. A good omen for improved form, maybe???

I feel like a broken record but losing games we should be drawing is what is killing us. I am so pissed off with the lack of draws.

Call me old fashioned but I always believe being solid defensively is the number one priority. The Brian Little era is the best example of this. We won a lot of games 1-0 back then, or could grind out a 0-0 if we absolutely had to- the semi-final second leg against Arsenal sticks out. If you can draw 8 or 9 games a season you have a great chance of staying up.

Smith's style seems to be 'go for the win'. I just think our whole approach to this first season back has been all wrong. We were very open in the first 10-11 games and didn't get the points we needed. I wish there had been more emphasis on defence and grinding out the points.

Going down, losing Jack, Mings and McGinn would be some kick in the balls as far as I'm concerned. It is a very long time since we had players we could identify with and it could be a long wait again.

I guess I am just pissed off at our whole approach this season - and you know what the league cup run has really papered over a lot of cracks. If we go down it won't be any consolation.
