'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bullard Confuses Me!

Do I sense the slightest change in expectation levels?

So far all the talk, coming out of the dressing room, has been about achieving survival, of how it will happen and how we will be a Premier League club next season.

Suddenly. I get the impression the mood is a little more downbeat, although I may be wrong.

In a tabloid today I spotted the following quote from Jimmy Bullard, in which he remarks,

"I don`t think about the fact we`re in a relegation battle, I take it as a good thing as I`m back out there playing."

"But what a great feeling it would be to stay up. We believe we can do it. Roy Hodgson is a top class manager and that`s where our belief comes from."


At first glance it doesn`t seem anything out of the extraordinary until you concentrate on one sentence in it

"But what a great feeling it would be to stay up."

Do I sense a degree of negativity there from our Jimmy? Have the events of recent weeks started to grind them down?

Or am I simply being a moaning old busy-body who is nit-picking?

Your answers pasted below would be appreciated.

I'd say you've resigned yourselves to the fact that relegation is almost a certainty!

I agree with orange and especially it being Jimmy i think he's the sort of person who would never give up just the kind of player we need. If we do go down (which we won't) will he stay?

I don`t think you should read into this too much Putney, i doubt if Jimmy thinks too hard about his choice of wording.Right now he is still on a high from his return and dealing with his relief that he is even playing again.
