As much as Sam might want to pretend the season is over and his job is done, we're two points off 7th place (assuming Leicester don't beat Man City) with 11 games to go. This is likely to be a European place depending on the FA Cup winner.


Any excuse not to be at least 8th after these fixtures?

Shows how underrated Eddie Howe is too.

We were 2 positions higher and 10 points better off at the same stage last season.
We were 8 points off 4th at that point, we're 17 now.
Nor sure if the top 6 have got better, or the rest have just got worse.

Not sure what that means, but it's good to have a bit of useless info.

The fact we're two points off with a -14 goal difference is bizarre

That's because we don't have a striker and we've been thrashed more times this season than any I can remember.

We'll still be ninth at best after that run above. Leicester and Burnley have easier games than us.

How the fuck are we even thinking about Europe

I know it sounds crazy but only 4 of our next 11 games are teams above us and the other 7 are mostly against relegation candidates (granted that's essentially the bottom 8-9 teams with as close as it is).

Trouble is if we get Europe, ( incredible to even think that after this season ) does that mean Allardyce stays, can we sack him, seriously ?

Yeah but this end of the season playing the shite can be harder than top six as they are scrabbling for their lives .

L’pool won the LC and reached FA cup final with Dalglish but still sacked him.

Obviously worry about this “if” it did happen but we’d need to look at how far off top 6; what points would we have got across a whole season; what were performances like vs top 6; what was performance compared to rest of the league from when he took over etc etc.

That’s before you get into is it healthy to have someone who gets booed for making unpopular subs at 3-0 up.

Last season we were a long way in front of 8th so we need to measuring against things like are we we’ll set to easily be the next best team and most likely to break into top 6.

Just hope to god we don’t qualify for Europe in 7th place and go through that whole shit of starting the season in June again, let’s get this season over with, have a manager in place by June and have a proper pre season.

I know what you’re saying but not wanting to be in Europe just so we’re in a better position to qualify for it next season seems illogical.
