Every home game is winnable, as none of them are City. We've also taken points at everywhere except Anfield and Vicarage Road in recent times

I love your attitude mate I'm not as confident as you we keep dropping points that I had down as bankers and pick them up when I doubt us.

and I still don't know how we let everton take 3 point so easily at SJP football Sucks  :( haha

From looking at those fixtures and being realistic transfer-wise a very optimistic 5 wins and 2 draws should just about see us safe on 39. Hoping we carry on our form over Christmas and hit the ground running but there's a good chance it's going to be another bar steward of a few months like. Haven't missed the auld relegation scrap

Firstly we won?t need 6 wins - I think 4 wins & 4 draws should do it - it?s incredibly tight and therefore won?t need to hit 40 points

Secondly surely you must class Bournemouth as winnable?

Every other team will have just as hard fixtures to go with so many games left

There is easily 5 winnable home games & 3 winnable away games
Add to that Chelsea will probably have nothing to play for last game and so could play weak team

It?s going to be tight yes but I think we will have enough to just scrape the results

You're sounding extremely confident about our home form Toon1 considering we havent won a home game since Oct 21st.  :roll:

I know that?s what I was thinking it?s going to be a proper scrap so many teams in the same boat strap yourselves in because it could be a bumpy ride can?t wait and I mean it as well that?s not me being sarcastic I really can?t wait! Might not feel the same at the end of the season we shall see!

I'd already made this point in another thread. I also think 7 wins is what's necessary. I think West Ham once got relegated with 42 points...no?

I said they are winnable games - do you not think they are winnable?

They will be difficult especially Burnley & Southampton who are very defense minded teams & we struggle to break down teams as we just don?t have the creativity.

Every game is difficult when you?ve got a poor team & we are doing well to be on 22 points so far & I think we might just scrape our way out of it but it?s going to be tough

In 22 years That?s only ever happened once - and only another 2 times has a team been relegated with 40 points.

Everyone down there is going to be taking points off eshother there is so many teams involved this year - and as daunting as it sounds saying we need so many wins - every other team down there is in same boat & their favs will think the same!!!

It seems the team does better away from home, obviously less pressure than having 50,000 expecting a win, west ham were on a decent little run until we beat them with a really good performance, played well at stoke too created a lot of chances early on really positive, yet at home to Brighton we looked clueless, there was a time when the home crowd was like the 12th man now it's more of a hindrance than anything, the players have to overcome their fear of the crowd before it's too late.

hey Toon1 40 points is always the target it doesn't matter how we get them as long as we do !!

and I didn't count on beating Bournemouth away as they beat us at home 1-0 (last min goal I think)

Knowing  NUFC they'll do the opposite of what I said and beat the big teams and lose to the sh***  :suicide:

Going to be tight. I'm not betting on us getting any reinforcements. We need Lascelles to stay fit for the rest of the season, then we can do it.

There are at least 10 teams in this fight. There are no easy games for any of these teams. It was no surprise that Brighton were a tough nut to crack. They have been turned over once all season, against Liverpool away. Other than that, they are hard to break down. There's no way we were going to get at them and put three past them.

At home, the fans need more patience. We are not going to go out and batter any team in this league. This is the same for any team in the bottom ten, not just us. The Swansea game will be a test of this. The home fans will be expecting a win, but Swansea will also be targeting us as a chance to win. If we are goalless at HT then the groans will start. We need to stay patient and get behind the team. If we cannot get the win, then getting the point and something out of every game.

I know expect us to get beat most days but it's a nice surprise when we don't. If we get a run of wins and confidence together you never know though!
