I just looked at the table - a week before the end of the season... it does not make for happy reading... look at the teams above us... read it...
these are the teams that we performed worse than...
of all of those... I'd say honestly... maybe Newcastle and Everton could claim to be a 'better' club generally... and it'd be a close call.
So even just being honestly realistic (not starry-eyed, claret & blue tinted glasses) we should seriously be competing for 7th or 8th place without even having to struggle
Yet here we are... a week out from the end of season and just managing to squeak out survival - and that's mainly in part to there being four teams that have been as crap as us but results went our way instead of theirs.
that to me is really the tale and truth of where we are as a club... worse than Burnley, Leicester, Palace, Bournemouth, Watford, Brighton and barely better than Swansea, Stoke, Southampton and West Brom
I'm relieved we're staying up... but I'm not a happy camper
