    It could have been worse....

    I don't know what all the fuss is about.

    At least we didn't lose to Newcastle at home.

    We didn't lose to Sunderland, who sit second from bottom.

    We didn't have to cheat to get a penalty for a draw against the baggies.

    We are still two points clear at the top.

    We play Southampton at home next. That's the focus.

    Are they the threat some believe them to be, or are they just pretenders?

    They won at Anfield, got a draw at Old Trafford, but then they get a draw at The Britannia and lose at home to Sunderland.

    It isn't a question of we should or we need to win. This is a must win.

    • No fuss from me John. We are sitting pretty at the top of the table, for now, much better than I expected. The game against United didn't mean that much IMO, thanks to our massive cushion over them and as you say the Southampton game is bigger for us now that Pool are only two points behind. Southampton have had a better season thus far than Man U so it will be tougher game if you ask me. I could live with a draw, a game like that is always risky after an international game and a draw would live us in first level on points worst case.

    • You're due for a win, John, seeing as you've lost three of your last six games.
