I agree that things look bleak, but I still can't agree relegation is a foregone conclusion. In fact 3 points mid week and we are right back in it.

The worst result for us was probably either palace or huddersfield winning as opposed to us losing. With their run in, they must be targets for us to reach. I just wonder if we have enough. I have a feeling that my earlier prediction if 36 points will be enough, 2 wins and 2 draws.

It's a big ask but not one that I personally have given up on. If we don't beat LFC midweek though bleak becomes very bleak.

I think that looking at our run in and the way we were playing, none of us really expected to get anything out of the Arsenal, Chelsea and City games so we haven’t actually faired in the last two games any worse than expected. The West Ham game was gutting as we just didn’t turn up, but we all feel so low after the last two games as the performances of the team gave us hope. Hope of getting a draw, or a win, when three weeks ago, the chances of such a result against a top six side was laughable.

We now have a run of 4 games where we must pick up as many points as we can, by carrying forward the second half performance against Arsenal and an hour from Chelsea and aim to play our best for 90 minutes. I don’t think Huddersfield will get much more from the season now so we have our minimum target – 35 points – but to ensure safety the team must still be targeting 40 points.

The results of the teams around us have not helped this weekend but our performances give genuine hope that wins can be achieved against teams with nothing left to play for in Leicester, Everton, Bournemouth and perhaps even Man City. Swansea is now looking a really important game too, but first, we must get something from Leicester.

I agree we can still stay up but I'm ready to support the saints in the championship. Hope we come back in a year if we do go down.
