There's so much of the season to go that it's ridiculous to say we're a relegation contender when we're only four points from 8th place.Sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture. We've been diabolical all season and we're currently 15th. Nobody thought Chelsea would get relegated in 2015-16 when they were 16th after 12 games and we won't either. We've got rid of our manager, no Europe to 'distract' and some key players to come back from injury whilst things already look on the up after beating Watford. The hysterical mindset is annoying.
Playing devils advocate. I think the annoying part can go both ways. It's annoying hearing people say we won't be relegated with such confidence just because we're Everton and we have history(I know you're not saying that). Right now there's not more than 2 teams that look worse than us, we've had a lucky win against fukkin Watford, and we have to go another 6+ weeks without a real striker and shite defence. Again, I'm playin devils advocate, and I think we'll manage to work our way back up the table to a good spot, But it's quite annoying reading how confident people are when we're proper shit.
Yeah but we don’t look like we’ve been unlucky, we look absolute shite and we’ve been lucky to get the wins we’ve had - a late pen, a mad Oumar-powered comeback and the oppo missing a pen etc.If we looked like we were playing well but just hitting the post or whatever then yeah sound, but we absolutely deserve to be bottom 3 and the next 3 games are absolutely vital to our survival - Palace, Huddersfield and West Ham.
4 points off 8th is also a weird metric. 7th is the target so the correct metric is 8 points off of 7th. Chasing down 8 points is not easy. You have to win a lot AND rely on 7 other teams all dropping points all the time. That's statistically very difficult, especially when you're garbage and only just managed to fluke yourself out of 19th place.
Totally get what youre saying, but I would say other than palace weve played the worst football this season, weve not had 1 good performance and have to manage without a striker, and a lack of options at the back until Jan, I too think we'll be fine and finish in a respectable position, but weve been shite and have a number of problems
All true, and we're STILL only 4 points off 8th.
