    I'm sure more than a handful have back ups in every position but I can't be arsed to look it up.
    I'm sure that we have always had natural back ups in the past too, like Cedric, Targett etc.

    Because we won't lose (or remain winless for) the next 13 games?

    Fulham ain't getting no more than 33/34. We'll easily get at least 6 more points.

    When we were flying high we had some ridiculous chance to conversion ratio. We now have a **** one, there is the main problem.

    We don’t create enough and whilst we might look good in retaining the ball and pressing and winning ball high, we create very little.

    I’ll just put it out there now.......sorry but I can’t see us beating Everton. I know making comments/reactions straight after a defeat is dangerous but they haven’t given me any evidence in recents weeks that we can beat a top 6 team. Sorry

    Had a temporary re-lay recently, proper pitch scheduled for the close season.

    I’m not saying he needs to go, but whilst he has overseen some great results, he has also been responsible for two 9-0 defeats and the worst losing run in our entire history.

    Something needs to change though, and Ralph I’m pretty sure has been aware of our financial situation.

    He is passionate about our club, and will be taking this personally.

    I said it in one of the other threads, I’m sure we will beat Everton.


    Oh gosh, I’m going to live to regret thinking that...

    Also the var nightmare at the Vila game, we should have won 2-1 but lost.

    Well yeah, put it like that so do we. We have Stephens and Ramsey who can both play RB. You have to be a knowledgable fan to realise your own backups are often only good enough when they’re not needed. Bit harsh on Stephens and Ramsey but you know what I mean

    Thanks.

    I can't see us beating Everton either (it's hardly a wild prediction given our record there). But it has no relevance to whether we stay up or go down. We're on 30 points, not 15.

    We're winless in 8 games, very easy to see how we can continue that for another 13. Its daft to think we'll be fine

    I just don't remember having to play so often with makeshift players than we have under Ralph, it seems to be almost every match.

    Possibly not......gotta hope that results go our way over the weekend....otherwise it does have some big relevance. But fingers crossed
