We need to repeat United performance says Doyle

We need to repeat United performance says Doyle

With wins over Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City this season, we have to be the first side with results like that to be bottom of the table.

But those wins have come amongst 16 other defeats, giving up points to all the teams around us in the table.

With Sunday's derby against Albion quickly followed up with a game against Blackpool, two wins will see us exit the relegation places and put some daylight between ourselves and the bottom three.

"We hope we`ll be alright if we can replicate the performances we`ve shown against the big teams. If we could do that against those around us, that would make a bigger difference to the table.' Doyle told the Express & Star, before continuing: "We seem to do it the wrong way around - I prefer it the other way."

"We believe we`ll stay up. Believing in it and doing it are two different things but if you believe you will, it gives you half a chance."

History states we wont take any points from those two games. Mick simply has to change the approach. We are far too negative at times, always playing the ball backwards... Teams like these set out to attack, and have caught us out all season.

At least us bloggers have seen the light, Ad Mant. It can only be a matter of time until it sinks in with MM (but not - by definition- if he is impermeable to advice).

I'm glad this article presented greater accuracy than the Express & Wooden Spoon who's seconday headline included 'otherwise we will face the drop'- no such quote from Doyle in a hundred miles. Players are obliged to talk to the press, and I'm not knocking Doyle because he says it pure and simple but from what comes out of the rest of them at the club, I may as well ask my 5 year old nephew what he thinks about our chances. I actually think he would talk more sense, if asked the same question for 7 months in a row, than having to cut out mistakes. See, I told you I was due a moan today.

This was the point I made in my article on team quotes but no-one seemed to read it ... or, if they did, agreed with me merely with a silent nod of the head.

I think one of dismay yes. I can't bear the thought of the final whistle going if we are glued to the bottom of the table- I won't be able to read anything after that; I would prefer us both to stay up so we have plenty, or at least two more Albion derby games to look forward to next season but I have a feeling one of us will go down; it don't think it really matters who says what before these games, any games, in the press- how many times have we heard someone's manager taping a comment to the wall as his supposed team talk (smells like B.S to me) and claim that that's all they needed. I notice Wolves are doing most of the talking, or their talking is being reported more this week in the lead up, but the Woy factor is in full gear at Albion and they of course are concentrating on the long term rather than just this game. All that matters is high noon come Sunday. Or cooking bacon and eggs at 630 am for me. Ah these noon kick offs are a blessing.

A noon kick-off means that my wife's wish of an early start for the trip to Derbyshire will be granted. I was going to do a training run on the bike first in order to burn off some calories before the pub lunch and beer to follow. Aarrgghh!!! I've just realised the implications of that statement. I'll have to feign sickness and an upset stomach. Depending upon the result, I might suffer those symptoms anyway. We really do have to win on Sunday. At least I am encouraged by the fact that the last time we visited my sister-in-law, we beat Sunderland 3-2. It's clutching at straws time.
