Derby,Leeds,Newcastle,Villa all AWAY in February, be afraid be very very afraid


Never to the dark side

Recommended Posts

It really puts in perspective how bad our run through the last 3 months has been. These weren't the most difficult of fixtures and we have picked up 3 out of a possible 36 points.

Also worth noting the experience of their managers:

Derby - former England manager, Premiership experience, won Dutch league with an unfashionable team.

Leeds - Premiership experience.

Newcastle - managed in La Liga (incl Real Madrid), Serie A & Premiership; won the Champions League.

Villa - Premiership experience & won promotion from Championship.

City - 1 & a bit seasons in League 1, including 10 game losing streak.

Yes I know all of these clubs have much more illustrious histories than us  BUT does highlight the difference. I think the phrase is "Employ monkeys, expect peanuts".

Not quite ,it's normally " pay peanuts , get monkeys " but now I'm splitting hairs .

I don't see any way that we don't end February in 23rd place.

I also think our goal difference may look more like what you'd expect from a team that has lost as many as we have after these games as well.

I can't see us keeping our amazing run of 'only losing by one' in this set of fixtures.

We will lose by more than 1 goal against Newcastle for certain. If we aren't -10 or more goal difference at the end of this run of fixtures, it will only be because we have installed a new manager...
