    I just find it amazing that we are on 35 points playing the most boring football ever witnessed in the premier league.

    Having said that you have to take your hat off to Bruce. We are about 5 points from safety.

    I can’t believe we look safe. And, at times this week, quite good. Europe thought? I believe the correct phrase here is “haddawayanshite”.

    We are 1 win from safety now I think. 38 will be enough

    35 from 29 with tails up is already enough. At worst we’ll get to around 40 and with it being a scrap between five I think we’re almost out of it. Win vs Sheff Utd, which I think we will, and it’s safety.

    We'll stay up but there are some big questions for the squad next season.

    100% the biggest one is getting a striker in. Presuming we lose Carroll and Gayle, we'd need a first choice and at least an additional backup: New striker, Joelinton, new backup, Muto.

    Wing backs: Bring back Jethro? Manq / Yedlin good enough on the right?

    Middle of the park: Who are our first two in the middle? What's up with Sean L and can we tie down Matty?

    Wingers: ASM and Almiron pick themselves but who are our backup options? Atsu not good enough.

    Can we keep Dubravka and our centre backs?

    Then there's the more existential questions about our 'ambition', finances, training facilities, and playing style.

    I don't think we will lose many players. Most have failed to impress, are too prone to injury or simply not good enough for a top side.

    Dubs is our best player, but all the top sides have top keepers. He's amazing for us, but a top side will demand more from a number 1.

    We should sign Jethro, but I'd try and keep Rose honestly. Spurs don't want him and he looks decent. Striker is priority.

    Max and Miggy will be sold in the summer and Matty will leave for a more ambitious club like Leeds.
