We always complain about the players, though...

Yet time and time again, a fair few of our flops go on to do fairly well and many end up playing in the premiership with other sides and look ok.

I think it’s the manager’s experience that has cost us this season..

So frustrating that all parts never seem to click at the same time..

Could the recruitment have been better? Yes. Were we naive to ignore some aspects of the market? Almost certainly. We gambled that the players would improve enough and come together across the season and at the moment it looking like it won’t quite work but it was a really tough position to be in and a difficult job to get right.
Difficult, but not impossible.

We should be capable of defending a corner.  You can teach young teenagers how to pick up a runner and get between them and the ball.

So basically, whilst the only change is the 4 match streak, it really isn't good viewing. We're in the shit on recent form is the takeaway fact.

Is it too optimistic/clutching at straws to say (hope) that if the form guide of the previous ten games repeats itself for the rest of the season that we stay up above West Ham and Bournemouth?

Athletico winning through means Liverpool don't have to take the Villa game so easy.
Would rather have them distracted by the European champions league

We have no chance of getting anything from that match anyway, footy. I think, anyway.

They could put out the team that last won the league and we'd still struggle.

I wonder if they’d consider a who’s been in the bottom 3 average for the season to decide?
What would the bottom 3 look like?

I’d guess Watford and Norwich would take up two places with the third between us, Bournemouth and WHU

We've only just become a bottom-threer.

Would Southampton still go on that basis? Hilarious  prospect, even if there’s no chance that’s happening.

Thought we’d popped into bottom 3 a couple of times?

I’d forgotten about Southampton!
