Weird one this, as I have no idea where Saints are. With 3 wins on the spin and 2 of those away and from one nil down to win two one, and the other at home to Man City, you would think we would be going into this on a high with all saying a home win, especially with Villa not looking that great.
I would say we did not really play that well at Palace at all, but got the win. We rode our luck at Goodison but had plenty of fight, but Everton are in a dire state, so a good time to go there. Man City was a different class, and if we play like that against anyone we will win.
I just have a feeling we are having one of those little spikes that you see teams at the bottom have before they fall away again.
Heart says win 2-1 head says 1-1 or 1-2.
My Villa fan friends seem to think we will win, all 3 of them, with one saying ‘we will be wearing our 3rd kit, we always lose in our 3rd kit. Not sure they were wearing that at home to Stevenage
I still think we do not have enough to get out of the trouble we are in. I think West Ham and Everton will get out of it, which will leave us needing Bournemouth to carry on dropping and a well drilled Forest to drop again after the spike they are having. Even though the table looks promising, I think there are too many factors working against us to beat the drop and sadly this little bit of form will fall away as others pick up.
Happy Friday everyone
