I reckon we'll beat West Brom.

Be a proper boring horrible 1-0 but we'll beat them.  We generally do alright there.

Fancy us to beat one of United and Chelsea too.

i've just come close to spitting out my tea.
10 points?

So beat Chelsea & United or treble our current away wins total?

West Brom and Bournemouth aren't shit.
If they were the 2 home games then i'd be saying 4 points from them 2 games alone yeah.

I'd stretch and say i think we're in for a 'good' Christmas and predict us to get to 6 points. But i wouldn't be wailing/devastated if we only get 1 point from 2 away games and 2 games against Champions league teams.

Swansea win. I think we can beat one of Chelsea or Utd at home. We've just played awfully and still nullified Liverpool who were playing better than both those teams. Chelsea just lost away at West Ham to a Moyesian defensive blueprint. Utd aren't looking remotely convincing to me.

And for me, we should be beating one of Bournemouth or West Brom (16 games without a win, worst ever run) away.

Swansea at home is, and should be, a banker. Do really think 1 point is acceptable from the other 4 games? Come ed Mick, lad. Let's start having some expectations again. I'm hoping for 10 pts from those games.
Only beaten Swansea twice at home since they came back to the PL


Simply simply lovely

Which is weird. We battered them away in that time. Remember that game where we could've had about 10 under Moyes and Pienaar, Baines and Fellaini destroyed them for 90 minutes (think it was 3-0). We should be cruising against this lot on Monday.

Anywhere between 7-10 points will be sound.

Swansea (H) 3
Chelsea (H) 1
West Brom (A) 1
Bournemouth (A) 1
Man Utd (H) 1

7 points and keep the unbeaten streak going.  And that's lowering my expectations, ideally we should be looking to get 11.

Swansea (H) 3
Chelsea (H) 1
West Brom (A) 3
Bournemouth (A) 3
Man Utd (H) 1

6-7 points will be fine. 8-9 points excellent, any more than that, extend Sam's contract pronto.

Realistically if were sat at 30 points in 9th spot after the MU game,we really will have turned things around comparatively from what went before the SA announcement.Bournemouth and WBA will be tough fixtures,the work starts again on monday 3 points is a must against Swansea.

One game at a time

Swansea is now the most important game of the season and so on and so forth

In and around 30 points after the xmas period is normally the barometer to a top 7 or 8 spot so if we manage that it would be amazing
