Well that's the end of the games that really we should not have expected to get a lot out of. Now comes a run of games which we should be expected to do better in. It would have been useful to have gained a few more points but we are still in with a very good shout of staying up because of how the fixtures have fallen.

No, we're in with a chance of staying up because there are a few teams that appear to actually be a bit shitter than us.

I'd hazard a wild guess and assume the three teams below us with less points

I really have been unable to work out why we are not in the bottom three with the results we have had - the fact we are not has to be a good sign with the fixtures we have coming up

If we beat Swansea we will probably be 5 points clear. Everyone is busy slitting their wrists after a game we were bound to lose . Our injury list is chronic once we get few back plus a bit of activity in the January window we will be fine.

hmm. On paper it simply looks as if we are back to par but the point is that the results needed are not predictions but really point to games where we should be picking up points. On the current showing we are going to struggle to get points in a lot of games where we need them.

We were three ahead because an unexpected win against Southampton and those points have now gone. Its difficult on our current form to see us picking up the points we need but the fact is that there are still more than enough winnable games to do it but we do need to make progress quickly because at the end of the season we have a killer collection of away matches against teams likely to be fighting for points to make the top 4 or to be champions. If we get to that stage of the season needing to make up points it will be very difficult indeed to find them as the home games are generally games we need to win anyway just to stay on course.

I never expected to say that Campbell coming on for Benteke improved our attacking options - however it did

I think we are on now for 33 points based against my pre-season predictions but having watched that this evening 33 points looks over optimistic

No only minus one because I had us down for a draw. However it is extremely likely that 39 points will not be needed to stay up if things carry on as they are with the bottom four teams so that would look to be not too bad as would the fact we are still unbelievably outside the relegation zone.

But this is a season where the numbers do not show the whole story. On the numbers there is still time to turn this round and a lot of winnable games, on the field it is looking like the players confidence is shot or they are simply not playing to their potential. the new manager bounce hasn't happened and it seems that we are struggling in so many positions it is difficult to see where the points will come from. And of course today Everton have warmed up nicely for next week. Not saying we will not do it because with a few new faces we still could but we need some points fast.

Hull's next 4 league games are
Chelsea A
Man United A
Liverpool H
Arsenal A

So all not yet lost in a bid to try and pull away.

They'll get 3-6 points from those games.

We need to win the six pointers. Hull, Sunderland but also Middlesborough and Leicester.
