Three games, no goals and two defeats since our fourth manager of the season told his team they couldn't afford to lose again. But for the lemming-like determination of Hull and Sunderland to relegate themselves we would already be down. Some of our players have already given up, most are no longer good enough to do anything about it.
"If we have to go down to the Championship to rid ourselves of the clowns and conmen that pollute the dressing room, that might not be the end of the world," thinks nufc.com. Whatever the financial implications, there's a big part of me that agrees. Better relegation and a clear-out than scraping along the bottom with the likes of Joey Barton in the team. We've been through worse than this and still survived. Players and owners come and go, the football club remains.
