Mathematically it doesn't look that bad based on the projected points we'd need to get.

But when you watch this team play, getting 39 points looks like Mt Everest.

OK Straw clutching time.

We need to wake up and smell the coffee pronto. Unless we start performing we are down.

So assuming things improve what do we need to happen.

Well Man city getting to the champions league final would be handy. And being in the top 4 but unable to win the title or drop out of the top 4.

Man utd in the cup final and in the same position as city would be good as well.

Suddenly our last 3 look better as the above two may rest players.

Told you it was straw clutching!!!

However, unless we start performing that will be irrelevant.

Winning becomes a habit. Lets hope we start with Boro and get on a roll. I'm still optimistic but fans need to get behind the team and not have slanging matches with the players and the team needs to give us something to get behind.

not feeling optimistic, but after their 2 week training/bonding break, maybe the team can respond a pull out a couple of unexpected results. And also relying on other teams to fck it up a bit
Are the players going away?

I did one of those predictor things and we ended up with only 33 points, but it was enough to keep us up on goal difference.

we will lose both of those, if we get 1 point from the two we have done well

A couple of other salient points.

Only twice in recent years has the final relegated team got 37 points or more (37 and 39) on both occasions the teams in the bottom four after 25 games had 25/26 points.

When the teams scrapping have had 21/22 points after 25 then the final total has not been higher than 36 and is usually less. On one occasion as low as 30 points.

My current prediction is for 34 points to be 3rd bottom.

I did one and it was incredibly tight. We stayed up and we ended on 35:

Cpfc 35pts
Swansea 35pts
B'mouth 35pts
Hull 34pts
Mboro 33pts
Leicester 33pts
Sunderland 32pts

We need 4 wins from 5.... WBA, Watford, Leicester, Burnley and hull.

Then, 2 points from... Spurs, Chelsea, Southampton, Arsenal, Liverpool, city and Utd.

That'll be 36 which might be enough. That's a big ask looking at those fixtures but we can do it. No more silly dropped points though.

A bonus win from the tough 7 makes it all look much better of course

We've surely got to fluke a big win from somewhere... but unlikely we will win 4 of those 5 so... I don't know

Yeah I agree but was trying to avoid any need for luck!

The palace way will be lose 5-0 to WBA and beat Spurs 2-1 after a prolonged hell on the bbs post pulis!

I don't think we will do it. It is indeed a very big ask. A big win yesterday but I still haven't seen anything that makes me think we are likely to string together 4 home wins. And even if we DID win 4, it would still probably require us to get more elsewhere. I still think the damage has been done
