Maybe, but we don't know how to score goals
and if we go down, who knows which players will actually stay
Tottenham did you and Flossie a favour, keeping Newcastle well in trouble.
I know, but our remaining fixtures aren't good - Newcastle's are slightly better and they're at home for the match against us.
I've discovered that I have a slightly mean streak that is thinking that if we get relegated (which is looking highly likely at the moment!) I'd actually be quite pleased to take the mags down with us.
Of course it would be even better if they were relegated instead of us, but the only other teams who are looking vulnerable (Hull and Blackburn) have much better run-ins then we do - so we're pretty much gone I'm affraid.
I did have a look at Boro's away form in the list of fixtures in the paper this morning.
Last 8 away games : LLLLLLLL
The Tyne-Tees derby usually ends in a draw, but draws aren't any good at this point. We need at least 2 wins and draw from our remaining matches - and even then we'd be depending on Hull or Blackburn picking up no more than 3 points and Newcastle picking up no more than us.
I'm not sure we can completely write off West Brom yet, either - they have quite a nice run-in with some winable games...
How are you feeling today, Barry?
