We have not failed to score because we cannot create chances, we have failed to score because we haven't had those elements of fortune that sometimes you need to turn a chance into a goal. Slightly scuffing a shot, the ball going between a players legs, the inside of the post instead of hitting it flush etc.

At some point that will change. The players don't look like they have given up/aren't trying. If we get the first goal, that first win i think things will change around pretty quickly.

If others don't and are sure we are relegated already then for their own mental health i would suggest they stop going because the rest of this season will not do them any good.
I've seen it all before so Palace being shit is not going to do any more harm to my mental health.
Wibble.

Bit tired of all these fans thinking being bottom of the Prem is the end of the universe... we've been here before.

Have a Sunday dinner and cheer up
About 27 years now and i stick by that statement. In that time we've never given ourselves such an amazing opportunity then screwed it up so royally when it's been obvious to everyone bar the so called fan running the club what is glaringly wrong and what needed addressing. Will we still be licking his arse and saying best chairman ever when we are where Sunderland currently sit this time next year. To now have no fit strikers at premier level after 5 years and just be told o well benteke may not get injured is an embarrassment and should never ever allowed to have happened.

Is there a sports psychologist on the staff? It strikes me that he/she is in the back room slurping a tea and nibbling a club milk. They're certainly not engaging with the players going by yesterday's second half. Personally, have doubts that Roy can motivate them. Something has to happen. We have to go for something at OT. Right now, I believe a goal would really lift the lads morale. If by some fluke we take the lead, even against Moan, we might go n to win. I just feel Roy has the kind of mentality that says we don't really kick on till after Chelsea. That thinking is not good.

Now, now, don't lose your cool. Stick to the maths....tell us all how easy this is going to be. Even though you suggest we can still stay up even if we get zero points from 12 games against Arsenal, Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs.

By your maths we will have a total of 66 points to play for.

Once we lose the 12 games against the top six and the 4 other games we have already lost against the lesser teams.

That is some amazing run of form we are going to have to go on to stay up. Unless of course we will get all those 66 points.

So you admit that we can stay up without needing to beat the top 6?

Target:

Home wins vs West Ham, Bournemouth, Burnley, Newcastle, Brighton = 15 points
Home draws vs Stoke, Watford, Leicester, West Brom = 4 points
Away wins at Brighton (have to!), Swansea, Huddersfield, Watford = 12 points
Away draws at Newcastle, West Brom, Bournemouth = 3 points

That's a total of 34 points

So we will probably need 4-6 points from Chelsea (h & a)
Moan U (h & a)
Spuds (h & a)
Arse (h & a)
Citeh ( h )
L'pool ( a )
Everton (h & a)
Stoke ( a )
Leicester ( a )
Spammers ( a )
So'ton ( a )

Looked at like this, it's far from over yet.

Shouldn't fear Stoke, Watford, Leicester and West Brom at home either but winning half our remaining home games (4D 1L) against those not in big 6 is a reasonable target.

I suspect we may win more than 1/3 drawing another 1/3 of those teams away too as you propose. As you say that is without any points against the big 6. Far from over, its September FFS.

Absolutely no chance. People seem to think that we'll get a couple of players back and then suddenly be in a position to win most of the games we play. It's utter lunecy. Last season we were utter shite for most of it and only survived by beating a couple of the top teams where we got a fair bit of luck against Chelsea and Liverpool (penalties that should have been given). This team and squad has been in decline since Dec 2015 and this start to the season isn't a blip, it's a measure of the averageness of the team. People go on about the first 11 on paper being one of the best outside the top 6 or 7. It's nonsense. Barring one or two it's bang average and thia I feel will be one season too far of ******* around in the transfer market. We should have got relegated that first season, it's been amazing, but I just cannot see how we'll get out of this mess. Failed to score in ten of the last eleven games. **** me

We are horrendous at home. No chance we'll win 5 and draw 4. Seriously underestimating some of the quality in teams like Watford, West Brom, West ham, stoke, etc. They are better than us this season

On paper we can still compete with and beat those teams as long as our key players are on the pitch, but quality won't be what would change our season imo. In FDB's words, "the team needs to show balls." With a bit of fight and grit we can get a result against anyone on our day.
