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.

Bizarre logic. Koeman got us in this position, and you think he's the most viable candidate to sort things out? Based on what?

If we get a vaguely competent manager in soon, we'll fly up the table. We have loads of good players, and a better squad than most of the other squads, outside of the Top 6. Your commitment to Koeman borders on the delusional.

Even at this stage, we're 2 wins away from 8th. Far too early to panic. Ok, admittedly we haven't looked like winning games so 2 wins seems far away at the moment but still, I think we should keep perspective.

We need any sort of win and confidence boost in that Watford game and can still get things back on track.
