If you tallied our deserved points up we’d probably be relegated
I do also question how great that West Ham performance was. A few big moments went for us otherwise I think we might even have managed to throw that away from 2 nil. We were all over the place second half they missed a pen and we scored from our own half. Think we were in trouble had either of them not happened
We’ve not been in full control of a game all season. We’ve been utterly dreadful. Hence I’m not overly confident it wouldn’t take much to get us 7th
That is just so not true. Our deserved draws feel like loses and our close wins against shitty teams feel like draws b/c we have high expectations. But we are a full 16 points above the relegation zone now -- and the gap is likely to get larger by season's end as we will play some pretty bad teams over the next three weeks. We were never in danger of being relegated, and pretending like we were now, when we are fully 16 points above the relegation zone, typifies the sort of irrational fear that led to the hiring of Allardyce in the first place.
Holding Everton to a higher standard is right and good; but making overly dramatic assessments of the team that are, frankly, untethered from reality is entirely counterproductive.
