...fair enough given our winter bad run?
If we are to finish 10th on Sunday, we needed last night's result for Stoke against Fulham:
Fixtures for Sunday involving teams just above us are:
Arsenal v Fulham
Aston Villa v Blackburn
Man Utd v Stoke
All loseable matches, with a potential win against Wolves putting us in 10th (equal on points with Stoke and Blackburn but with a marginally better goal difference.)
Still very possible!!
I mention that on another more recent active thread and frankly don't discount Fulham. Fulham and Arsenal have been beyond belief recently for very oppising reasons to past seasons. I think Fulham could nick a point at the Emirates.
Fulham have been awful in the league lately but they still managed to nick a point at Anfield. Depends what team Fulham put out.
13th would reflect our season more honestly than 10th tbh
Kind makes you wonder how woeful the other teams have been through out the year. I mean we had 3 months of drudgery and still have the potential to finish about Stoke, Blackburn and Fulham. Actually all I have to do is think of last season and I know exactly how it has been for them.
Fulham have been shit every other week.
That was the game I had in mind. If Zamora goes into the game confident then Fulham could give Arsenal a game.
More to do with what we did after that 3 month drought of confidence and good results I think.
I think so. 10th would flatter us. 13th would show how much work is still needed in terms of the transfer market
Personally I think that if we finish 10th then over the course of the season that would be appropriate for a top 10 finish on merit.
However if we were to finish 13th then that would be a fair reflection over the season too.
Zamora is injured and Fulham will field a weakened team v Arsenal. If we beat Wolves, we will finish 10th. Guaranteed
(We'll probably draw though)
We'll finish a minimum of 11th Bongo.
Fulham are crap away from home, in the premier league.
So a Blackburn draw at Villa is out of the realms of possibilities then?
