Still on fifteen points above the tracker - the voice of calm and reassurance, despite things like goals scored from multi-ball situations and deflections!
Yes potentially. 7 points from 5 games.I fancy us to be better off than +2 on the European tracker after Chelsea on 15/4.
Yes potentially. 7 points from 5 games.
But equally 7 points from the next 3 games given we have only achieved 2 from the last 3 seems tough, as opposition is similar on paper with 3 teams all very motivated to perform.
That's why not seeing off Palace (first time), clumsy defeat to Fulham and the Leeds draw feel so disappointing. We could have been very insulated against a poor run.All of the five games are tough, but we're more than good enough to get a result in all five. Of course I don't necessarily think we will.
BUT, the fact that five points from those games (bare minimum imo) would leave us on par with the European tracker after 29 games is remarkable.
I reckon 8 from the next 5, anyway...
That set of results WAS our poor run.That's why not seeing off Palace (first time), clumsy defeat to Fulham and the Leeds draw feel so disappointing. We could have been very insulated against a poor run.
Only just noticed how low Brentford are. Their real position?Perhaps more than ever the full league table comparison is a good guide of where we really are now.

Liverpool have edged us into 6th (due to their win over Man Utd which added 3 points whilst their defeat at Bournemouth cost them only 1 point).
Lots of key games to come.
And Palace still not yet in as much trouble as I'd like them to be.
Two points better off after tonight which puts them 8th.Only just noticed how low Brentford are. Their real position?
If it ain't broke, don't mend it!Can we update the title to Europe tracker now we're safe?
Ah yes. Here you go, ahead of this weekend's games (Just!)*Cough Cough*
