I'm happy that we've got half way into the season and are more or less well on the road to the survival target, this combined with a nice comfortable gap over those relegation places, it's just important we don't become complacent.
Individual performances have been very good from the usual suspects. Shane Long, Jonas Olsson, Gareth McAuley, Ben Foster and Steven Reid have all performed very well, it's what we've come to expect from them. I was positive about our siging of G Mac but I weren't sure how he'd cope. I'm delighted to say he's gone from strength, further enhancing the reputation of our scouting system which has so far found another talent.
I'd expected more from Jerome Thomas, Chris Brunt, Nicky Shorey and Peter Odemwingie, although of late Peter Odemwingie and Chris Brunt have certainly showed their class and worth to the side. The rest have been on that average to satisfactory side, including Mulumbu who also had a better game last night.
Soon as we hit that 40 points the better but I have no worries about relegation, I honestly feel we'll be safe.
