Such a shame that Kean couldn't have made WBA's substitutions. It would have been a 5-5 thriller :lol:

i think the gap between us and WBA is too big now. think they'll probably be considering themselves safe.

It really is looking 3 from 5, dont see Villa getting sucked in. Stoke haven't won in the league since they beat us, i dont see them getting sucked in either though.

In a straight shootout i think we should pick up more points than wigan and wolves. We all have to play the big teams too. QPR have lots of difficult games to come as well.

Its still eminently possible for us to go down, but with a few really good performances between now and May, we can still be safe :D

Coming from the guy who is the king of stuff like that I'd take it on board.

Back to relegation. With Yakubu back and still scoring and hopefully Samba due to play again I feel we are the strongest side out of the bottom 5 currently.

Fulham, WBA, Stoke and Villa are not only a good 7+ points ahead but I feel none of them will get sucked down into the mire, mainly because none of us are good enough to catch any of them up... :lol:

1 team always nose dives and I'm still waiting for it to happen to Swansea. They have been fantastic but they do appear quite beatable if you get your tactics right, which teams are starting to do.

Essentially it is now 3 of the bottom 5 and I firmly believe Bolton, Wolves and Wigan are far worse than us and QPR.

Bolton cannot score goals, are not playing Coyle's total football (like they ever did!) and concede very easily.
Same has to be said for Wigan except they do play some nice stuff.
Wolves are the surprise for me as the best XI is good enough. 2 top strikers, good wingers etc. They just look really shit.

If Rovers can get this team our on the regular I think we will be fine.

At least we can now compare ourselves to Wolves and see if ditherering trumps decisiveness

Wolves make the decision to sack their 'out of his depth' manager

Rovers stick with their 'out of his depth' manager

Unless both survive :D

Will be interested to see who they replace him with. Who's available and a realistic target for them at the moment? Steve Bruce?

Steve Bruce would be like swapping half a dozen eggs for a box of 6

Surely there are more choices than that. Surley someone lurks in the left field

All I can think of is Wolves have had the epiphany our owner are too stupid to have realised that they are going down with McCarthy in charge so they may as well go shit or bust and see if it pays off

Timing is very silly, transfer market just finished so new boss can't make any changes to the side.

Nobody decent will go to them.

They might get Big Sam back... :footinmouth:
