Time to prove we're good enough

Time to prove we're good enough

The time has come, time is now, time to prove it, no regrets.

So many clich├ęs but this is what our season has come too.

With six games of the Premier League season remaining, we find ourselves bottom of the table.

Usually at this stage of the season, that would mean impending doom, with the writing already on the wall.

Thankfully this season isn't like any other season.

We still have one game in hand and we're just three points behind 16th and the safety positions.

Two wins would get us to 38 points, the same tally as Fulham, our opponents on Saturday who sit 12th.

This season is still most definitely in our own hands and we have shown the quality to avoid the drop, but now is the time to show it.

"We`ve got what it takes to get the wins we need to get out of the position we`re in. But we`ve got to prove it.' Karl Henry told the Express & Star.

He concluded: "We don`t want to be looking back at the end of the season with any regrets - the chance is there for us."

Seeing that Fulham were much the better side, a point will do, especially considering the results elsewhere. If Blackburn lose at Eastlands, a win on Tuesday will see us sixth from bottom. Not on this showing, though.

The lead up to this game filled me with dread, it was not fun to sit through and I do not feel any better after it. Worse was still to come and that was from Mick who had the balls to stand in front of a camera satisfied to have given up yet another lead, two points and 17th. If I thought he was playing the miserable, stubborn Yorkshire fool character he seems proud to portray for the sake of the camera that is one thing, but if he has repeated to his players the same as he said to the BBC we are done for. 'A point won?' Sorry- I've tried to remain optimistic all season in spite of the fact we should be mid table by now considering the money we have spent but the reality is we are staring relegation in the face. 1 point from a possible 9 when we are begging for points is relegation form. The fact the manager refuses to acknowledge this is pathetic. He has said 'May 22nd' and 'We will get out of this' so many times he must have fallen into a catatonic state. We have been saying for weeks we need three wins and I am beyond concern. He basically laughed off West Ham claming they could win 3 from 5 because he could not see them hitting a 60% win rate. What makes him think we can achieve it. Fulham are as good a side as any we have left and if we can't beat them who are we going to beat. So much hinged on this game today. We needed three points and one won't do. I'm bored of saying next time, next time. I'm tired of us giving away leads. If they have spent two weeks 'getting back to basics' and fundamental organization, in April, and that is the best we can do then we don't deserve to stay up. The table does not lie after 33 games. A relegation battle and a relegation is not something you want to add to your existing CV which already boasts a previous Premiership disaster. I feared he had run out of ideas and whilst the game today failed to fuel 'hope' his post match comments sealed it for me. Even if we do somehow manage to stay up I can't see anything better than another relegation battle.

I think we lucky,outplayed and outclassed,scored a goal against the run of play and for me the way we gave up attacking positions just to keep the ball and play it backwards just to keep possesion smacks of desperation. I actually felt embarrased watching this backward negative play,and in the end it got back to the goalkeeper anyway and he just booted it upfield and we lost the ball from there!. Only consolation is the others around us are probably just as bad,if we do get out of it I dont look forward to another season of this!something has to be done.UTW.
