Dokko Posted April 1, 2007 Share Posted April 1, 2007 We've Sheff Utd away coming up and we simply cannot afford to lose or be prepared to be drawn into a relegation battle which i doubt the players or the fans have the stomach for, especially considering 2 of out of our last 3 home games are against the 'big 4' opposition. This really leaves for us to secure EPL status in the away games, something which frightens me right now, and apart from the last day of the season, this game is the easiest opposition on paper, lose, and expect a snowball effect which could bring us right to the relegation knife, whether it cuts or not depends on the teams below who are picking up form and closing the gap every game. They could eventually crumble and we will have nothing to worry about, but those teams are mentally in a relegation battle, they have already started to fight for their lives, were simply asleep and could easily lose out if the fight comes to us. 2 wins would secure us in my opinion & Europe is now a distant dream and unless something dramatic happens we can forget about it, the players and manager have let us down on that front, they don't deserve it even if we do. The run in looked rosy on paper a few month ago, the teams haven't changed, only our form which ironically has got worse since out key players have come back from injury, says something for the kids and also the mega stars, it also says a lot for luck (Spuds game) and a couple of goals from Martins who if he didn't go on some form about that time would have meant us being were we all fear right now, in the thick of the battle at the bottom. So when do we panic? Now, after the Sheff Utd game or when were 17th hanging on for dear life? I don't know, but the fans are really out of this one, apart from the Blackburn game, which by then we either don't care as we have our wins, or shitting bricks and baying for blood, either way poor way to end another disappointing season. So the next game is vital, 2000% if some think we have any chance of getting into Europe, drop any more points and thats gone meaning even less money for a club losing £1m per month as it is, but its just as important with the rest of the run in that we win to keep us out of the fight, if we lose, the shit will really hit the fan.
