Where are our next victories coming from?

Post by 1964white »

Where are our next victories coming from our final 12 matches

London hoodoo, two matches to come in the capital.
Four of our home matches v the top eight clubs, ER is not exactly a fortress this season.
Poor record at Brighton.
Forget the Citeh game, no one can live them right now.
Blunts always give us a difficult game at ER.

West Ham (a)
Chelsea (h)
Fulham (a)
Sheff Utd (h)
Man City (a)
Liverpool (h)
Man Utd (h)
Brighton (a)
Spurs (h)
Burnley (a)
Southampton (a)
West Brom (h)

I feel we have to beat the Blunts

Burnley is a possible 3 pointer, won't be easy

Surely the baggies will be down come our final game, we should win that one.

As for the rest I just hope we can gain what I would call bonus points

I don't care actually - this season was always going to be difficult and I'm glad we've survived in the EPL.
Whatever points we get will be welcomed but, you have to ask yourselves, what comes next?

That, I don't know.

I only know that I've been here before.

It's not a mathematical certainty with 36 points still up for grabs....Fulham have not lost any of their last 5 games, and we still have to play them in London...

Manure were poor last night but I bet they don't play like that against us.

I'm not confident about Fulham or Brighton for the reasons in my OP, plus both play with pace a facet of the modern game we struggle with, their firepower in front of goal isn't great but no doubt they'll fluke a couple passed us as we have already witnessed this season in some of our defeats so far!

Draws would be nice for a change!

We could do to the Hammers what we achieved at the King Power Stadium, we'll have to start strongly though, no good conceding goals in the opening minutes as we have done in many of our away defeats especially in London.

Chelsea haven't lost in 8 or 9 games under their new coach, would be a sweet victory for us, can't see it though. May earn a draw if we play up to our full potential.

Fulham worry me, stronger teams than us have struggled against them of late, a must not lose game imo!

If we don't beat the blunts we have to question ourselves, they are a poor side!

I know for certain they won't play like they did v Palace.

We have to remember we don't park the bus like other teams so we are always vulnerable to the quality outfits, would be pointless anyway as it would backfire against us.

Our best defensive display was v Burnley, can't see us getting away with that style of play v a quality strike force.

Actually I predicted us to finish on 50/51 points a couple of months or so

I'd be very happy with that total Chilli.

The advantage for us is we already have points in the bag over Fulham, Newcastle, Brighton, Burnley & Southampton.

Without checking I would assume that those five clubs have a difficult fixture list on paper particularly as they are under more pressure than ourselves.

Hopefully we'll have a full quota of our squad soon, we need KP back quickly.

I agree would like to see us get another win ASAP to make it more secure and just to settle the nerves a bit

Getting KP back quickly is absolutely key - is it 6 losses in 7 games now without him ? Maybe someone can check ?
