So here we are at 12 games played with just 7 points from a possible 36.
40 points seems to be the accepted survival target although sometimes less than that that are needed. With 26 games to play we need 33 points from 76 to reach the magic 40.
The return of Zimmermann will be a big plus. He's been built up to superhero status and I do hope we're not expecting a bit too much from him. Whatever extra he will bring to the side his team mates have got to do their bit too.
I think we're finding we're a bit short of quality for the Premier League. Even with a new face or two in January survival looks a big ask.
