    BCBlues Lend us a Twenner

    Looks like he started writing CFC then remembered he was a Palace fan.
    His smaller mate meantime is an Everton fan but had to do a runner before he could finish.

    It's our fixture schedule that's now the biggest challenge. We could play very well between now and the end of the season and still drop points against Arsenal, Liverpool, City, United, etc. Very few opportunities to acquire points now.

    Very pleased with the upturn though. Cracking signings.

    I can see from the run in we play the top six home and away if we do the job
    to our best we can I recon we could get 10 /12 points this includes losing to all top 6 teams
    so we should end up on 35/37 points

    Thing is - no room for error. A refereeing decision, a red card, etc. could decide things here or there. Gonna be nervy.

    Do you not think these things even themselves out over a season? Also, I think we make our own luck, which comes better when things are going well.
    I am not one for thinking that even a match rests on one iffy decision yet alone our fate for the next few years.

    No, I don't believe the 'even things out over a season' thing at all. All I'm saying is that things are very much still on a tightrope. One unexpected loss from here on in would probably be enough to topple us.

    Remember what happened in 1993.

    To further illustrate - we play the top six teams in the table between now and the end of the season. Of the remaining (other) five games, only three are at home. Slim pickings.

    2 back to back wins, we are on a roll!
    1993, that was then, that is history, look forward, be positive.

    That's when we start thinking about the 4 points Benteke cost us buy missing penalties.

    We,re gonna stay up on goal difference I bet

    Even if a penalty is missed, there are still in the region of 90 minutes and 11 players and subs who could all make a difference.
    " we are too good to go down" :confused:
    "We don't deserve to go down" :confused:

    I do feel very positive about things. The four signings have given the team the balance it's been missing for ages now. We are definitely on a roll, and are a totally different proposition to play now. Just tempering the optimism with a bit of reality though. We've left our resurgence very late, and there is not much room for errors or bad luck!

    have to play the Spurs this weekend, so we our straight on to Watford at home the following weekend thats got to be 3 points of the 10 /12 I think we might get.

    I found this game on the BT sports box sets today, not easy to find but it`s there under classics, it is in black and white , it explains why he is wearing the trainers and shows this picture being taken :)

    Alarm bells ringing now, for sure. When Leicester were imploding, and Bournemouth were gently floating down the table towards us, I could see targets for us to latch onto. Now take a look at the teams competing for the relegation spots:

    Bournemouth - they've been terrible lately, but the win today means that they will most likely be fine.

    Leicester - won their last two games, managerial bounce - will get points between now and end of the season.

    Swansea - won 4 out of their last 7 games - should get plenty of points.

    Hull - 8 points from their last 6 games - will also get points before the end.

    Forget about Boro and Sunderland - we must keep ahead of them regardless - it's the other spot I'm worried about. Who is going to fill it if not us? If the fixture list was the same for everyone I'd be confident as we are playing well. But it's impossible for us to amass many (if indeed any) points against Chelsea (A), Arsenal (H), Liverpool (A), City (A), United (A).

    We're gonna have to have a pretty much perfect end to the season now I reckon.

    One bright spark that I've only just cottoned on to though - the fact that the bottom clubs all play relegation rivals in their run-ins does give them easier games, but it also means they'll be stealing points from each other in the process.

    SE25 1 sec lemme chat about road

    Sakho and Luka have added so much to the team already, they just clean up. I think both have cult hero potential already. Hopefully if we stay up the dippers will let us have Sakho and we get it done before other teams have a go. As for staying up, it's amazing what two wins, clean sheets and good performances will do to change the mood though the weekend's results are a pain in the arse. As long as the team keep the effort up and stay defensively solid I think we have enough to get the 4 wins or whatever. Nice to see Townsend giving everything now after what he served up before Feb, will go a long way with the fans. hopefully this warm weather training camp in Morocco does what Sam says it did for his teams in the past as well, let's face it a week there has to lift the team more than staying in London. Speaking of Sam, I know the fans are divided on him and he didn't start well but he's growing on me. Think bullshit free, defensive managers suit the club tbh and it's not like the football has been that bad, we still take the game to most teams.

    Watford next and you've got to go for the win there. Keep fatty Deeney quiet and we'll see...
