    That Fulham game

    Aye, I remember it as a typical case of trying too hard and getting out-foxed by a more experienced opponent. I read observations afterwards that Francis was laughing and smiling at the end despite the humiliation (the inference being he couldn't care less because he had a contract lined up elsewhere already) but IIRC we hadn't won an away game all season and that pattern was unlikely to be broken with the pressure on.

    Back in the fight?

    Yesterday's win was most welcome and will give everyone in and around the club a psychological boost. We still have a mountain to climb, though. It is imperative that we do not drop points in any of our relegation 'six-pointers' from here. We won't know if we have finally turned a corner until we put a run together. I'm still clinging to the hope, though, until it's mathematically impossible.

    Me too. But I am seeing some very charming looking young ladies...

    Central heating

    Set a man a fire and he'll be warm for the rest of the night. Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life. Terry Pratchett...I think.

    The 'ammers

    A win on Saturday would really boost confidence, especially as one or more of Everton, Brighton, Watford and West Ham are going to drop points. We really need to win most of our 'six-pointers' between now and the end of the season if we are to pull off a great escape now, though. We have been found wanting so far. Something has to click a la Southampton to stand a chance from here. It can be done, of course, but we really need some of our points to be at the expense of those not far above us.

    Tonights relegation games

    Outside our own results I don't think it really matters who wins what games. If we get to 40 points we will be in with a shout. We really have to win against most/all of those bottom seven or eight teams to amass the points ourselves. Outside that it matters little what the others do.
  7. I like the alliteration in the title. Just needs pinching into someone along the lines of 'Duda deal done; da daaaaa!'

    Shame Maguire is back for Man U.

    BT Sport

    To be fair, my reading of the OP was that Lakey was asking whether there was a legitimate route to getting BT Sport temporarily, perhaps in the same way you can get day passes for Sky Sports via the Now TV app.

    City v Spurs match thread

    Please don't let this slip away. Our play, courage and character deserves a win here.

    9 wins?

    Aye. It's massively unlikely that we will stay up from here, but not impossible. We keep seeing green shoots without really gaining any traction. Pukki is certainly doing his bit but there have been too few goals from elsewhere. It's hard to see that changing enough in the second half of the season. We keep plugging away until it is mathematically impossible, though.
