I am totally bricking it - Ive been hyperventilating all day since midday when the Everton Mackams debacle kicked off.... However, Ive just checked the fixtures: 2 points above Hull City, and they have to go to Spurs and then play Man Utd in their last game. We MAY just fluke this...
Repeat that second half performance against qpr and it just might be enough. But under the current regime they'll be aiming for just enough next season as well. The club is rotten, with an owner who doesn't care.
We were lucky. West Brom looked as though they were on the beach already and if they had shown any ambition, that would have been another defeat for us. Hull losing at a home though was a huge result and may just have saved Ashley's hide.

For your info Louise, the Guardian is a national newspaper. Some people who read it are outside the north east. COYB!
man utd have been the richest club (or 2nd) for over a decade, so they always sound silly when they moan.
