Weren’t we in a similar situation 04/05? We were in the bottom 3 or 4 at NYE with similar points, went up to Sunderland, played shite for 90 minutes until Cahill scored in the 91st minute to win the game, after which we went on a run and lost one of our remaining games from January to May, qualifying for Europe.

We should be used to this. Been here before and pulled through.

I feel that I'm usually a pretty level headed blue, but looking at us I haven't seen a worse side in the league this year.

We look to me like a side in real, genuine trouble.

Palace and Bournemouth. They’re below us for a reason

That doesn't really help when 3 teams go down.

We aren’t going down.

And I was replying to Brap’s comment of us being the worst team in the league.

I know, but we don't have to be the worst team to go down.

You've just said on 1 hand that we're not going down, but you can only name Bournemouth and Palace as worse teams....if that's true, then we go down.

At the moment. When there’s the likes of Swansea, West Ham, West Brom, Stoke in the mix I’d say we’ll come out of it ok.

I honestly think we're worse and in a worse position squad wise. My worry is as well is that in retrospect this won't be a shot out of the blue - this will be well they struggled with an aging side under Martinez, bobbled around mid table for a bit and then finally dropped to the bottom three. There are signs there and they aren't good. We look empty.

I think the next 5 league fixtures are season defining.

Watford (h)
Palace (a)
Southampton (a)
West Ham (h)
Huddersfiield (h)

Three outta those five are in and around us.
