Three from Five?

Three from Five?

Enough now has been said about injuries, form, formations, lets face it the table never lies and at the moment we are the one of the worst teams in the Premier League.

I am afraid that time is not on our side, this weeks game against Fulham is decisive, if we don't get three points and results elsewhere go against us our time in the promised land will I fear, will be up.

So far this season, when the pressure has been on, Merlin has been able to conjure up a win when it was not expected, can he keep it up or will his luck run out?

Its now looking like 3 from 5; Blackburn, Wigan, Blackpool, West Ham and us.

Its not certain but I would be surprised if anyone else is involved, maybe Sunderland who are in freefall but I think they will get another win which will be enough, lets hope that win is not against us!

It could be a bad day for Lancashire with all three from there going! To be fair to West Ham they have spent and bought players in during the January window and that seems to have improved them, but will it be enough?

Looking at the fixtures left sometimes luck can help a little, Fulham look safe and mid table stability may just lean towards a touch of 'Easing up', Stoke away? Always a difficult place to go but will a FA Cup final be lingering in their thoughts? Even the baggies could well be safe by the time we entertain them on the 8th May!

Sunderland away could and will be a difficult game with both teams at that stage needing a win, Blackburn at home could well see both of us in trouble? One of us needing a win to stay up possibly?

The real six pointer is the one I've saved for last, Birmingham away on 1st May! What a May day it could be, it could mean Blues are safe or an away win could just be the one that saves us.

The Everton game hasn't finished us, but I think it was a very bad and damaging result, it has piled the pressure on us when we should be sitting in the table on 35 points instead of 32!

Finally I do think whatever happens, even if we do manage to stay up, a change in our coaching is a must, not the manager!, who I think will and should be given until at least the halfway point next year, but a new high profile coaching appointment to assist Merlin and perhaps take the players abilities up to a level required and expected of them.

3 points then is a must this week,even a draw I fear will not be enough, lets get 'operation survival' under way and make sure we are not one of the 'Three from Five'

I don't get the coaches comment, Mick McCarthy should be the only person who selects who is part of his coaching team, if he doesn't think an addition or change is needed then that's good enough for me, you can't back the manager but not his coaching staff, they are a team just like the one on the pitch.

Happy Clappers have been quiet for a while... perhaps the ineptitude of our manager has finally sunk in. That said, Ive been thinking about our Promotion push next year. Wayne,Doyle and Jarvo will certainly go, but I think with Hammil and Kightly on the wings, and hopefully Fletch and SEB up front, not to mention already have a championship quality back 4, we should be in very good stead to return automatically. Mick then wont do anythign different upon said promotion, and until we get someone with big ideas at the helm, we will relieve the title of Yo Yo club from those b8sards down the road. It will be a long year no doubt, bu I have faith that Morgan will see sense and get some Oneill'esque chap to take us the the next level. WE ARE WOLVES

To me it seems as though the subtext to Crete Wolf's suggestion that we employ a helpmate for MM is exactly the same as Ad Mant's bald statement and Akela's polite observation!

Happy clappers been quiet? I'm still here Billy big *********, some of us try to cheer on the team rather than just moan when things don't go right.

they are called observations... and they are pretty close to the mark. Stark contrast to your submission wolf man

Yes, all of us should cheer our team on, and I did so last Saturday. I was not one of the many fans who booed either. However, with the best will in the world, I could not put a positive WW gloss on what occurred on the pitch. We had chances in the first 20 minutes and, had we scored, the outcome may have been different. But, we didn't find the net and then compounded our problems by giving away a soft goal in what was virtually Everton's first attack. Thereafter, the team fell apart and that's Henry's opinion, not just mine. I would love to say something nice about our performances in the last two games but we were awful. There's no reason why cannot regain our earlier form but the players have to be strong mentally, as well as skilled on the ball, while the management has to be tactically astute. Next Saturday's match will indicate one way or the other how resolute the team is. It's a must-win fixture.

I was refering to Terry Connor Akela, who I think is now on his 13th season under a number of different managers and his 4th as assistant to Merlin. I just think its maybe time for a change and some fresh ideas.

Now that elokobi is injured. It seems that MM has to reshuffle the backline

It seems as though Mancienne has played at LB and in spite of his lack of match practice, he surely cannot do a worse job. It's the same argument for and against Craddock in central defence. Stearman certainly expects to give way to him, as he is volunteering to fill the RB slot.
