Ok, I know we are already down but some of you seem to think otherwise so I'll humour you.

But if we're to have any chance of staying up results have to go for us today.

Firstly, QPR must lose at WBA and while Blackburn look as down-and-out as us, we also need them to get nothing at Swansea.

A victory for QPR will relegate us.

I expect us to beat Villa - our overpaid ponces will be following the games and know what has to be done. The players who are OOC will know that relegation will affect the teams and contract offers they will attract and will be mindful of this. Championship teams are not widely known for jaunts to sun-drenched and fabulous Dubai, so they will come back ready to fight - and perhaps, to play a little footy. That said, I expect QPR to beat WBA.

What evidence are you basing this on? They knew they had to beat Fulham and got tonked.

If QPR win they'll be 5 points ahead of us - no way will we catch them.

I doubt it.

So far, so good... I expect us to beat Villa because we have done it before and I don't rate their young team very highly (yet). They have good kids but it will take a bit longer for them to be feared. Villa has been using a number of U23 players and a number of players on the bench are about 19! If we can't beat Villa's kids we may as well go down. Reasonable expectation?

Swansea 2 - Blackburn 0
WBA 1 - QPR 0

Nice.

More of a pipe dream really, Villa have pace and we can't handle anyone faster than Chris Amos.

Usain Bolt has pace as well - not a particularly good footballer though.

We have 2 games in hand on QPR and Blackburn, with one in hand on Wigan..

How anyone can say we are 'down' already is beyond me.

Out of all the bottom five we have the best chance of escape, a good run, with two games in hand and only 2 points off 16th.

'A victory for QPR will relegate us'... and what? Wigan are suddenly some super team who will blitz the rest of the season?

Yes. They are in great form and their last two games are against Rovers and Wolves. Wigan won't be going down.

Lofty - Natasha doesn't know anything about football and is the most overwhelmingly negative 'supporter' of a football club you will ever encounter. She has nothing positive to say, ever. Don't worry about it.

ha ha, so because they have two games they are likely to win then they are staying up? they have 5 games left not 2, every team in the bottom five has winnable games coming up, this means nothing, in fact the ones you pointed out arn't even easy.

Im much much happier playing West Brom at home than I would be if we had that Blackburn away fixture, the last thing you want at the final days of the season are relegation rival fixtures...

Great form? one point more than us in their last five games, wheres Coyles praise?

Whichever way we cut it, I think we have a better run-in than QPR, Wigan and Blackburn. If we can get three points at Swansea next Saturday then I think we will see some light at the end of the tunnel.

Looking at the table I think 38 points will be enough to survive. That means we need nine points from six games. Achievable ? Yes, I think so.

They beat Liverpool at Anfield, were robbed at Chelsea, then beat Man Utd at home.

We beat Rovers and Wolves.

An EXCELLENT day. Steve Kean must be spitting feathers after that performance and QPR have to play Man City and Chelsea away.

Wolves got a draw but it's no good to them. Come on you Gunners!

So it's still in our hands although we all know that our performances have to improve to claw back the necessary points. Rovers shipping 3 has put a smile on my face. It's going to be a rough ride from here on in though. Spurs game grows less critical as long as Rovers and QPR keep losing.

We beat Wolves Blackburn and QPR, 3 of the most important games of our season, even you said this before the games. But when we win them what do you say? just that Wigan have done better Rolling Eyes

btw, after todays results are your still certain that were down? or have you realised that being two points behind 16th with 18 points to win is actually not even close to 'already relegated'

Cheek of it!!!



Well all in all quite a good afternoon for Bolton, although we didn't play.

Wolves could only manage a draw - but they are basically down and out anyway.

Blackburn lost 3-0 to the Swans

QPR lost 1-0 to West Brom



I honestly can see Wigan getting a good thrashing against the gooners on Monday evening



By the end of Monday we will be 3rd bottom, but with 2 games in hand!!! Our fate rests with our players. I hope that we do succeed in beating the drop.



One and only Wanderers

We have games in hand, but I'd rather have 31 points and have played 34 games.

In a season when we have struggled for points why are you all so sure we'll start pulling them out of the bag?

I think QPR and Wigan are currently the best teams in the bottom 5.

United struggled to get into the game against QPR even when they had an extra man because of the level of passion in the QPR performance. I saw them play West Brom today and they were unlucky not to get something - West Brom just defended very well. And they were just great against Swansea.

Wigan v United was just all Wigan. Victor Moses is like lightening - he's a world beater in comparison to anything we've got. Even Conor Sammon who can't get into their first team looked livelier than any of our donkeys.

Both teams are playing with urgency. It's like they're aware of the job in hand and the time constraints and they're willing to get a fooking shift on to get points on the board before it's too late. There's none of that at Bolton. I'm dreading the Swansea game.
