And so it comes to this. Six points to safety. West Brom is a goner. Huddersfield is doomed. Swansea and Southampton will be killing each other. All we need is to beat Palace, who have nothing to play for, and Swansea . This could be the greatest escape in EPL lore.
Like Selby suggests the gods are throwing everything at us with Atkinson in charge and Palace with a decent record at bet365. Meaning Zaha with his ability to fish his leg at opponents in the penalty area before tumbling over and then the wide smile at Mr Atkinson to confirm a penalty. The only worse ref would have been Antony Taylor.
I know i have said we looked doomed for ages but it is still mathematically possible to be playing in the Premier League next season.
Credit to Stoke for a battling performance at Anfield a game i had down as 3-0 defeat. Sad to hear that Badou has a release clause if relegation occurs as he looks a talent with workrate.
We are Stoke …… it ain’t over till its over.
Very impressed by our back line. And we still got Cameron if needed. We played the next European Cup winner in Liverpool. Badou is a star, he should play just behind Diouf, Shaq and Allen with a back six to control the game.
And now the buck stops with Butland making his claim for the Number One spot for England.
Crystal Palace are is cruise mose . They are not playing for their lives. They are safe and can prepare for their holidays earlier than expected.
Our confidence is sky high and we need to beat Palace, and by a few goals, I hope.
The Swansea v Southampton exhibition is going to take a huge toll on both clubs. Its a sudden death match especially for Southampton who plays Man City in their last game.
Even a draw suits Stoke.
Huddersfield has to play Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal (Wenger’s last).
I’d say we are looking good and up for it. Sleep easy stokies.
No problemo ….
I too am disappointed about Badou, I would hope that if we go down he could be encouraged to stay for at least one season to help us get straight back. We also need to keep Bauer as he will be a key player which ever league we aee in.
