Back in the Bottom Three - And it's good news!
So we're back in the bottom three but actually, it's good news! I didn't really fancy Fulham to go down, so their victory over West Brom, although bad news in the short term, is probably excellent news for our survival chances. West Brom are beginning to slide. Burnley enjoyed a good first half to the season last year and still went down. The season before, Hull looked so so safe, but only just clung on to Premiership survival by their finger tips. And, of course, in the Great Escape season, Shafting United looked home and dry before divine justice struck!
The Birmingham win was perhaps less obviously to our advantage, but I've kept saying that Blackpool will be sucked back down into it, and this may be their kick in the bollocks that I have expected all season. Of course Birmingham winning isn't great news given some rather important up coming fixtures but I expect Wolves to pull clear and, again, expect Birmingham to cling on. So Wigan, West Brom and Blackpool would do me nicely!
Now, can we get a result at Newcastle and ease the tension a little?
