If at any stage you find yourself in a relegation position (which will probably be us on Sunday) you have to assume you're in a relegation fight. It'd be silly to think otherwise, until you start to climb the table.
That's how teams sleepwalk into trouble.
I don't think the goals tally lies either. If we can't score regularly then we're going to seriously struggle there is no two ways about it. The difference in recent years is that even when we were bad under Martinez I was confident with Lukaku up front we'd get goals (the things you need to win games, and turn 1 point into 3).
Now, we have nothing and that is more scary than having Martinez in charge to me.
I think we're going to have to change the manager but I think we're going to have to pay a shit ton for probably only a half decent striker come January in an attempt to course correct. The money we should've spent earlier to get a better calibre of player we'll probably waste (value wise) again this next window.
Unless we really sort out of scouting network.
