Did we have as bad as run as this under Moyes? There is no real excuse for this run with the players we have. We should have had at least 2 wins.

I don't recall, but then again we did finish 17th with Moyes. Looking at the 2003-4 fixture list the worst we did under Moyes in terms of results was a stretch of 1 win in 10 games. We were W1 D4 L5 in that stretch. Technically Moyes worst stretch was better than our current plot.

Ugh, and that was with a vastly inferior team.

Martinez has got to show some bollocks. Moyes had plenty of that.

Yeah. Our current lot could beat that team 4-0 easily on their better days.

I think Martinez suffers from wanting to be everyone's friend which is great and all, but sometimes, like now, the team needs a leader and not a friend.

Actually I think our worst run of form was the beginning of the 2005/6 season when we got knocked out of the Champions League, the UEFA Cup and the Carling Cup at the first hurdle and found ourselves lying firmly in 20th place for a couple of months. Our form read:

Lose, Lose, Win, Lose, Lose, Lose, Lose, Lose, Lose, Lose, Win (Dinamo Bucharest Home Leg), Lose, Lose, Draw, Lose...

...Then we won against Birmingham thanks to a Simon Davies goal.

Definitely two bad runs of form regardless. Still very dire circumstances no matter how it is painted.

That was a really miserable time. After such a great season the year before we managed to go out of 3 cup competitions and be bottom with just one win in mid October!

Not only that but we only managed to score 7 goals out of 15 games - this stat includes Duncan Ferguson's disallowed goal vs. Collina's Villareal.

MASSIVE game tonight... A real test of our mettle and against the team of survival specialist, Tony Pulis.

A win will be really great, but actually the most crucial thing is not to lose as its against a direct current rival.

We need the crowd to get right behind us and every player to go out and give EVERYTHING.

Yep, that was a much worse run that we have had this season. I mentioned this a couple of weeks back in response to a doom post. Turning point in the league was the draw against Chelsea, James Beattie with a pen. Lampard of course equalised in the second half, but given our form and Chelsea had a 100% record at the time, getting a point changed our fortunes.

Unfortunately not the good kind. Not trying to stir up controversy, but how many teams in the EPL do you think would still continue with their current manager with that stretch of games (only win against QPR)?

I think that number has to be less than 5, right?

You'd get the same answer (or less) if you asked 'how many teams in the EPL are trigger happy?'. What might of happened had we sacked Moyes during a worse run after a good season?
