QPR Slipping Down Table
With Swansea and Norwich both picking up excellent away points, and Wigan grabbing a point saving equaliser against Chelsea, QPR's true position in the Prem has crystalised. A victory over Man Utd tomorrow would paint a different picture but, as things stand, the Rs are down to 15th in the table and are just 3 points above third from bottom Wigan.
It was always going to be a battle for QPR to survive, although the mid table position hoodwinked a chunk of their fans, who genuinely seemed to believe that they were equipped to finish in the top half of the table. When I warned that complacency and cockiness were inappropriate, I innocently provoked a stream of abuse.
Well the table is now taking definitive shape. Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal fill the top five positions. Newcastle are slipping. Liverpool will probably finish one place higher come the end of the season. Stoke have opened a gap between themselves and 9th place Norwich. Villa and Fulham are in mid table and Everton will climb higher over the second half of the season. West Brom will not go down. And Sunderland will climb under O'Neill.
Bolton really do look doomed and unless Blackburn sack Kean, they will join them. But the third relegation spot is between Wigan, Wolves, QPR, Norwich and Swansea.
Unless the Rs beat the Mancs tomorrow of course! Come on you Hoops!
