Three games for Moyes … but just look at the next ten

Three games for Moyes …just look at the next ten

So ok, he may may grab one win from either Brentford at home,  Everton away or Burnley at home but take a look at what the bloke faces after that and on the face of it there is little chance of many points from any of them. If – and I hope it’s not the case – he is still around he has one heck of a run of games and you would need to believe in footballing miracles to believe he is going to win many of them.

Let me remind you of the games that will be coming up:

Villa (home)

Newcastle (away)

Spurs (home)

Wolves ( away)

Fulham (home)

Palace (away)

Liverpool (home)

Chelsea ( away)

Luton (home)

Manchester City (away)

I’m not be hateful or  prejudiced but all I see from those games is a possible maximum of six points if we carry on as we have been playing.

However, we will have possibilities I guess should Lucas Paqueta return soon and remain uninjured but let’s be real, these are very tough tests.

That would be a possible one at Newcastle. one against Fulham, one against Palace and three against Luton though the boys from Kenilworth Road currently look a better team than us over recent games so I am being more than generous.

Chelsea grabbed a draw at Manchester City and have beaten Palace and Villa in their last three games whilst Wolves beat Spurs whilst the other games look difficult in the extreme,

Should my prediction prove accurate it means we will finish the season with 42 to 45 points as I guess we will beat Burnley.

So if the club keep him going until the end of the season they should prepare for some further fan unrest as it looks more than possible.
