OK, I am very nervous for tomorrow.
Of course I have to start this by saying no game is totally predictable and that when you say a game we will lose may not happen. We saw this at Liverpool of course and football has this wonderful habit of proving you wrong.
However it is clear to all we need 15-18 points for safety from 13 games. Over these games I class 5 as ‘unwinnable’ Arsenal, Man City, Man U, Chelsea and Liverpool. This in simple terms means we need 5/6 wins from 8 games, when it is put like that it shows the dire straits we are in.
Therefore for tomorrow’s game with just 8 games to get the wins, this is a TRUE MUST WIN. We have seen these before, Wigan, Southampton for example but this is the one. We do not win tomorrow then it means 5/6 wins from just 7 ‘winnable’ games and few would expect us to get that.
I know there are a remaining few out there who say that this is being too doom laden. However we all know the game, we know surprise results can happen but we have not looked like doing it enough to give me confidence we can get out of this.
In this case therefore this is why I am so damn nervous for tomorrow. I suspect even in the hearts of the most optimistic fans they even know this is the MUST win game of any this season.
Nervous as I type this, god knows what I will be like at one tomorrow !!
