He has more than likely analysed our run in, the players we have at our disposal, the teams in the bottoms run ins and the chances of them surviving before taking this job role.

Looking at it you would think we are gonners and there is no way out based on our current season. So on paper a manager that comes in with 10 games to go and keeps up will have a "season saver" reputation on his CV.

Our run in compared to others and players available compared to relegation rivals you would be sure we would stay up. If we do go down it would be a case of "they were terrible all season and i was appointed to salvage the ship in the long term following relegation".

Monk wont stay if we drop. No chance.

The games we have left are winnable. We cant ask for 3 better home games than hull ipswich burton.

Only ourselves to blame if we cant muster wins out of them. Just hope the fans turn up saturday and get as many as we can.

We need it.
Exactly very winnable but all some can see is other teams picking up points when we have maybe the best run in of all.Amazing.
Lets just take on game at a time and hope the two Norfolk/Suffolk teams can win tomorrow.

If Ipswich beat Hull tomorrow and we beat them at stans on Saturday HOW many points will we be behind them. er just goal diff level on points. in ONE GAME.
We’ll be 3 points behind Hull?
17:38, Mon 12 Mar
very optimistic and necessary 15pts for 45 points, more likely 8 points for 38 points

HULL (H) W (probable D)
IPSWICH (H) W (probable D)
BOLTON (A) D (probable L)
BURTON (H) W (probable W)
BRISTOL C (A) L (probable L)
WOLVES (A) L (probable L)

Fair play it confused me. Like someone else has said if Barnsley win tomorrow and get a point sat in their early game then were 6 points away from them all before weve kicked a ball.

Five behind them, as it happens, but we'd need six to overtake them due to our terrible goal difference - it's 15 worse than theirs at the moment.

Were currently 2 points behind them. If they get a win & a draw then were 6 points behind them.

No worries, it doesnt look good though does it. Lets hope things start going our way. Morrisons shot stopped on the line, any other day any other team thats in the net. Still dont think the keeper knew anything about it.

I'm not normally pessimistic about our relegation scraps, but I am this time, although more optimistic about the future IF Monk stays and now that SC has gone and Vetere and Dein have been shown the door.

Yeah agreed. I was looking forward to Cardiff aswell, nothing seems to be going for us at all.
It just feels different this year, it just seems such a tall order and we’ve no momentum.

Ah well, I’ll be there on Saturday.

I don't think that I will, OR the Burton game. It's my wedding anniversary and promised to take the very lucky Mrs Tam to North Yorkshire, although there's some negotation planned for later. It's my daughter's 30th birthday on April 7th, and we're taking her and her fiancee to London. Can't get out of that one, I don't think. Gutted really.

We didnt have much momentum last season we dropped like a stone.

I think its worse this time because we are worse defensively.

We miss Grounds so much.

And there in lies the problem, Grounds hasn't improved he was just surrounded by poorer / less committed players.

Mine too. I think he'd got that award nailed some time ago. There hasn't been anyone else in with a shout, sadly.
