Relegation deniers think again. We all have opinions on this and that but one thing overrides opinion and that is the mathematics of relegation. Nothing changes the fact that our target must be 40 points to avoid the drop. That means 8 wins and 8 draws from Sunday onwards. Call it 4 wins before and 4 wins after New Year. If we do get 4 wins before New Year that would constitute a recovery by our standards. If we don't get 4 wins before New Year then we face a hell of a relegation scrap afterwards. Surely Koeman is capable of scrapping us through to safety? The PL future of the club cannot be handed over to an unknown or an inexperienced coach. We might do worse than keep Koeman until next May.
