Forget the teams below us... 10:46 - Apr 15 with 4408 viewsTheResurrection

We need to be targeting Brighton and Watford above.

We can all hope that Stoke and Southampton continue their struggles and there's clearly a lack of quality in their squads. They've only won 6 and 5 games all season. For them to have any realistic chance at survival they are going to need to win at least half their existing tally's to date. And this from their 5 games remaining.

This could happen, anything still can. And that's how they will be looking at us. Their message boards are depressing now, much worse even than this one. They know they have to go on a Champions winning run to even have a squeak, and then they're looking at other clubs to help them out.

Nobody would swap places with them, no matter how much you squeal on here.

However, we need to turn this pressure on its head and look at climbing the table. Great the teams behind us are struggling but let's make sure we bring more into the equation just in case.

Watford and Brighton sit 12th and 13th respectively and Watford have 1 point from the last 5 games, and like last season, are in free-fall. They have 4 games left including Spurs, Man United and Palace. Brighton have picked up 1 point in the last 4 games and are feeling the strain and as we know have a horrendous run in. What they would give for 3 games against Bournemouth, Stoke and Southampton, with 2 of them at home.

This is the reality of our situation and you can bet all you want on what Carlos will be drumming into our players.

We are looking up, not down. We are going to City for a point and we want a result against Chelsea. We don't want to lose against Bournemouth and we want to do our business early so we can go into the last 2 games trying to get as far up the table as possible.

We are better than Everton, we are better than Watford, Brighton and the 2 behind us. And we are mentally strong and ready for the run in.

Keep that scoreboard ticking over.

The only teams we should be focused on are

Man City
Chelsea
Bournemouth
Southhampton
Stoke City

And how we get some points from these games to ensure we finish at least 17th. Not looking at teams above us but on what we need to do in each of our remaining games.

whilst Man City are now crowned champions Saturday will no doubt be even harder as the pressure iis off them sothere will be no nerves and they will not want to slip on a bananna skin for their celebration..oure aim should be to keep the score down to protect our GD...it would be great if we could sneak a point.

The other games we should be aiming to to get results from. Chesea shown they are vulnerable away and we have beaten Liverpool and Arsenal ...that said WBA beat United yesterday!

Very fair point. It’s only normal for us fans to get preoccupied with other teams losing, but from the teams point of view, it’s very much in their own hands and all they need to focus on is the remaining games.

Play like we did against Everton and we won’t need anyone to do us a favour.

If we fail to muster up a win just like we failed in the last two games then I’m afraid we are focusing on Southampton below us to not pick up any points.
Stoke are finished.

Why would we be targeting teams above us to finish higher than them by failing to muster up a win?

That's the whole point. There's lots of points still to be won. And not just the 3 a lot are hoping for.

There's lots of points to won by all the teams in trouble.
Winning them is much harder than talking about it though.
For example who would have thought WBA would have got 4 points out of the last 6 ?
If Stoke win tonight, they could well go on a run and put us down.
Ergo, we cannot afford to forget the teams below us ...

Do you want to tell the players that then?

Lucky not to lose three points of our advantage over Stoke there - one point was bad enough.
To think some think we should forget about the teams below us eh ....

We need to. We need to get at the ones above us.

West Ham firmly in our sights now. Another team we'll end up above.

"We should never have been in this trouble, that's all down to Clement. "
Would that be the same Clement that you said Jenkins was right to wait until December before sacking, when the rest of us were calling for him to be sacked from the WHU away game onwards ?
Hate to break this to you but the league table doesn't lie.
The only team in a false position IMO is Huddersfield.
The rest are better than us because when push came to shove they have got the results that mattered - that is why they are above us

Well done you for seeing that Clement could have been facing the sack then.
However in endless posts since you have defended the Yanks and HJ, who are colletivelly responsible for the bad managerial decisions (i.e keeping managers on too long)
Any way, more important things in the world to worry about.

Chris,

We are blatantly NOT better than Brighton (safe) or Watford (safe) in the current table which does not lie.

We are currently in 17th place and 5 points above the relegation zone .......please don’t paint a rosy picture on behalf of the Sellouts depicting us over achieving from where we are now ........

In reality we are most certainly IN THE SHIT and if we don’t pick up a point in the next 2 games then we will go into the last 3 games of the season to Bournemouth away and Soton and Stoke at home needing 4/5 points ..........I don’t sit comfortably with that tbh...the greater the pressure the bigger the chance of the team folding under that pressure .....

Never seen a final day ‘shootout’ including the Swans’ for relegation so far but think this year it will be different ....


I really don’t think Brighton are safe just yet, they are 2 points above us with a horrendously difficult run in. It’s not inconceivable that they don’t pick up another point.
