Stoke win, Blackburn draw, we lose. Again.
Assuming West Brom are gonners, as I think we safely can, that leaves any two from Fulham down to join them. There are ten games to play and we're still a long way off the forty-point benchmark: if Blackburn pick up anything from their game in hand, only goal difference will separate us and the bottom three come kick-off against Hull.
Will Allardyce fail to live up to his own astonishingly high opinion of himself? Will Middlesbrough play every game like they did last night? Will Portsmouth plummet or Stoke implode?
Let's hope so.
