    Is our run in actually quite tough?

    I say this because our last 5 games are as follows

    Charlton 21st on 41 points scrapping for survival
    Huddersfield 17th on 46 points not safe yet so as above
    Blackburn 20th on 41 points as above
    Yeovil 24th on 35 points will probably be down by then but if not as above
    Forest 10th after promotion

      all games in this league are tough, except for Leicester away, which is easy.

      these teams are low in the league for a reason and that reason is because they are generally rubbish. We play at our best when teams come out in search of goals which a lot of these teams will hopefully do in their predicament, rather than parking the bus

      Don't think parking the bus will do any of the clubs fighting to stay up any good.
      They have to win games so I'm fairly hopeful that they will come down here and at least try to make a game of it.

      (keeps fingers crossed).

      There are no 'easy' games until after the event. Anyone who thinks otherwise has a screw loose!

      I'd take ours ahead of any of the others, although an argument could be made for Bournemouth's - Yeovil (A) Wednesday (H) Ipswich (A) Forest (H) Millwall (A)

      On paper we should win every one of those.

      I agree with your comment about teams parking the bus, which is why we need to go all out attack from the first minute and try get an early goal forcing the other team to come searching for a goal, leaving spaces for our players to exploit.

      Liverpool has successfully used this tactic on several occasions this season

      I don't know if it has occurred to Oscar - or any other football manager - but my rather unique theory is that we should take each game as it comes.
      That's just, like, your opinion man.
