Six Points The Target?

Six Points The Target?

After ranting on for so long about how the Premier League would read so differently if games lasted forty-five, sixty-five or eight-five minutes, a degree of realisation appears to have hit home.

Our manager, Lawrie Sanchez, (he who favoured such talk) has stepped forward and told it exactly as it is!

Talking in the aftermath of our 3-0 reverse at Goodison Park, Lawrie had this to say,

"It`s a waste of time talking about ifs, buts and maybes. We need to bring some points home and we have to start doing it in those games."

Clearly, talk of how things might have turned out has materialised into how things are.

With homes games against Newcastle and Wigan to concentrate on next, the importance of getting six points appears to have hit home, failure to do so catapults us into a dramatic dog-fight, a fact not lost on Lawrie who remarked,

"If not, it becomes a real dog-fight over Christmas and I don`t think anybody in the bottom half is safe at the moment."

The last part of that sentence could be true.

This season the Premier League has a strange look about it. No one team has walked away at the top whilst the bottom half, except Derby County, are as close as they`ve been for years.

Indeed, the consensus of opinion this season is that the much fabled target of forty points could well exceed the actual safety mark.

Thankfully, Lawrie recognises that our current predicament isn`t where the club should ideally sit suggesting,

"We are looking at doing better than we are doing."

Hear; hear Lawrie, so how about doing something about it?

He's right though, time to forget what's gone on and look ahead, otherwise you'll just fester in self pity!
