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'
