    Big step forward today and last week. We need to take this momentum forward with us now. Liverpool currently doing us a favour leading 1-0. A 4 point gap is handy with 10 to go. 5 at home, 5 away. Palace, Man U, Cardiff, Swansea, Everton are all winnable home games. Our away run is tough but if we get on a roll you never know.

    Man U may yet be catchable if they continue their iffy form.

    Been a good season regardless so far.

    Fulham is the only real chance of getting full 3 points away from here on in. Stoke and Southampton; we'll have to fight to get a point and I don't think we;ll get anything from Arsenal or Liverpool. If we can win 3/5 of those home games and draw the others, we should be fine for 8th, maybe even 7th depending on Moyes' boys

    Aye we have a really difficult set of away games. Saying that the away form has been surprising. Our pace on the counter seems to make us a real threat. If we could get around the 54 mark it would represent a cracking season given our lack of investment/sale of best player

    Got more points than last year. Very good performance overall, far too much beel on this board for my liking.

    They may not be Moyes boys much longer.
