Others Get Their Skates On!

Hey, Les some bad news for you. While we were waiting on this platform that we've just built all the others have got their skates on and scarpered. Well, there's still a couple of mates left but there's no party with only three of us is there?

In fact its starting to get a bit down chilly here without a bit of company, know what I mean? Not so cosy anymore. Its a bit like playing Grand Prix on your Playstation - make a slow start and when you round the first bend you see, not surprisingly, all the others disappearing around the next corner.

With Newcastle ending their 9 matches without-a-League-win run with a 1-0 over Pompey and West Ham doing the same to Sheff. Utd it wasn't such a good weekend for the Addicks. And it gets worse when you see that Middlesbro' also got points on the board with a 1-1 draw at Villa Park. And if you fancied catching Spurs, well they enjoyed a 3-1 over Wigan.

So we're now 4 points adrift of both Newcastle and Blackburn and 5 behind West Ham with Man. City and Middlesbro now 7 points away. Its time for a win, Les, and its needed on Saturday.

We now only have 5 games left before we reach the half-way mark at Christmas and you know what they say about Christmas and yet we still haven't reached double figures. We need to at least double our points in these 5 games and that means getting 3 wins from somewhere.

To remind you we have Blackburn and Liverpool at home, two teams with only 1 away win between them in 13 games - only 4 goals scored and a huge 20 conceded. We have to take advantage of that and we have to beat them both.

The next 3 away games are against Sheff. Utd, Spurs and Middlesbro. Sheff. Utd have only won once at home and lost 3 but improved Spurs now have a home record the same as Manure while Middlesbro in winning 4 times have only managed 6 goals. And they lost 4-0 to Portsmouth 2 weeks before we lost 1-0 so anything's possible.

So its three wins out of five needed to get to 18 points at half-way. Gives you some idea of the size of the task ahead, doesn't it?

it was good in a way that Newcastle & West Spam may leave us more stranded but those two teams will not be going down and it may just wake some of our players up to how quickly we could be set adrift....we desperately need to win our next two games to get off the bottom and in with a chance of moving out of the bottom three then get another 4 points from our next three games and things may start to look slightly more rosy...
