Will we stop up?

Can't seem to find a poll button.  ???

With Roy now in charge simple question, will we stop up?

Please explain your answers in full  :P

And the answer of 'ask me after the wolves game' doesn't count.  ;D

I think we'll stop up. But it won't be easy. I got a feeling we'll do it on the last home game.

If the players react positively to RDM going then yes we can. However, from last Saturday's performance for the 'apparently' popular Appy (according to the interviews etc) is anything to go by there were a few too many passengers for us to seriously be able to get the required results.

Although I am usually quite pessimistic (exp. when it comes to Baggies results) I think we will just about do enough, and NOTHING will be decided by 2pm on Sunday other than the result of ONE of our remaining games. ;)

Voted No.
Looking at our remaining fixtures, and with a defence with more holes than a second hand dartboard, I'm struggling to see where we can pick up enough points to stay up. Plus the fact that the teams around us seem to be able to roll up their sleeves and grind out results.

I voted yes - we'll scrape through. Although to be honest I'm not convinced! We are Albion after all, and we never do anything the easy (or boring) way!
We've gone on holiday by mistake!

No unfortunately I dont think we have already done enough.  Those dropped points against West Ham and Wigan will prove crucial.

I look at our fixture list and after this weekend I cant see where the next win is coming from.

Just can't see it,we haven't beaten a team that was in last seasons premier league since Everton? so it is very difficult to see enough improvement taking place in the time we have left

I really can't see it to be honest, I think we'll be having another season in the Championship.

Although i'm always a pessimist, seems to make things easier when they're right or 10x better when they're wrong.

I believe we have what it takes to stay up, if we managed to shore up our seemingly hapless defence then i am a frim believer that we should be comfortable in this league. But i feel it is too late to sort it out now so imo we should simply go for the "im going to score more than you" tactic and due to the fact that we can score we will stay up  ;)

I'm doubtful. From some of the statements he's made this week, Hodgson is doubtful too.

I think he was the best man for the job and I don't doubt his ability as a manager but (correct me if I'm wrong), he took a while to actually make something of Fulham. Lots of people are getting carried away talking about the wonders he did for their defense but forgetting that took longer than just a few months to achieve. In the long term he could do good/great things for us and really strengthen up the defense. In the next few weeks? Not so sure.

Having said that, obviously a win on Sunday would be a huge boost for us but even if we achieve that, let's not get carried away. Remember when people were buzzing off RDM's streak, predicting a top half finish?! Seems like a long time ago now. I'd hate to see us quickly fall into a false sense of hope...

Very hard to say, you've banned us from using that after the Wolves game card. When you look after Sundays game we have some real tough games, the hardest run in of the lot. That makes it all the more important to win this game. In my opinion, the winner of this game will go onto premier league survival.

I think we are in the worst position being 17th, I think the lads are under a lot of pressure having not been in the drop zone since the first week and dropping into it will hit the lads really hard and I don't think this lot have the fight in them to get out of it. Absolutely vital to get three points on Sunday to alleviate some of the pressure but we have missed massive chances with the last two home games ending as draws.

It is far to tight to call at the moment, I imagine it will be a case of us losing a few points we would expect to get but maybe make up for it somewhere we aren't expected to get anything but whether that will be enough I don't know.

No. Our record against poor teams this season has simply not good enough, now we have the worst run in to add to that.  If we had won our past two home games, we would be on 31 points, sitting in 13th. Then you would say we only needed 9 points from the remaining fixtures.

Yes... but only if we keep key players available.

First half against West Ham we ripped them a new butt hole with players playing in their recognised positions, only when we lost Mulumbu and "the management" made the most baffling of decisions did we look like we were in trouble. Hodgson will surely not make similar mistakes.

We need to turn a corner somewhere along the line and why not tomorrow. I remember quite a while back under Buckley I think where we went ages without any points in the second and we played the dogheads and got a draw and went on an unbeaten run after that.

Hopefully tomorrow will do the same for us.

A 1 - 0 win will do me, but my nerves will be shot at the end of it  ;)
