I fear we will continue to draw games and stay bottom until the defence is more organised and a Striking alternative to Beneteke is bought in .

Things look dire but.... on December 16th last year Swansea had 12 pts and survived. We had 15pts. Today we have 5pts but have 6 games before December 17th this year so a possible 18pts to play for. 3 wins and a draw from those 6 games and we will be exactly where we were last Christmas. I think that's manageable.

What has made our task difficult to climb the table apart from the obvious of not being able to win games, is the teams we expected to be the usual suspects fighting relegation are playing above expectations and gained unexpected points.
For me the ray of hope is, we are playing fairly well since Roy took over and that always bodes well, its the lack of goalscoring is of major concern and it really needs Benteke to start banging them in on his return to the team. Also IF we can bring in a striker in January that can chip in with a few, and someone who ideally can play alongside CB to make our attack more potent as we are now at a point where we Must show adventure and bravery, only then we may have a chance of getting off the bottom and into a safe position.

Pretty good considering we only have a 31 game season. West Ham getting smashed at Everton and Huddersfield getting a spanking by Arsenal. We haven’t even conceded the most goals either.

How bad is the so called "Most Competitive League in the World" this season?

We've been a shambles for quite a bit of it. We sacked a manager 4 games in. We haven't scored a goal away from home. We have one striker who has been injured for half of it. We have a choice between two "iffy" keepers. We've just kept our first clean sheet in over 6 months.

Yet despite all of the above, seven of the nine teams immediately above us have a worse record over their last five games and we are on the verge of not only getting off the bottom, but getting out of the relegation places.

You couldn't make it up!

And to think many had us already down a couple of weeks ago. Just ridiculous talk at this stage and with the way we're playing compared to others. Still in trouble but still firmly believe, as I did a month ago, that we will slowly but surely pull away

Only at Palace mate. We have more then a fighting chance and our destiny is in our own hands now. We have stabilised while all hell is breaking loose or is about to at other clubs, Wet Sham, Stoke, Swansea, WBA, Newcastle. Huddersfield have scored as many goals as us and 3 were against us. It really is Pantomime season.

Agreed. As I said on the current matchday thread, everyone from 9th down is definitely in the mix. We need to do our own thing. The table after 38 matches is the only one that matters, not 14.
