Thursday 29th March.
With the crucial period of 10 games in the next 5 weeks commencing
on Saturday, Macari today called for the players to give one final
push to rescue themselves from the relegation places. It might be
a good time to remind the players that they have got themselves
in this predicament over the past 36 games, and that they owe it
to the long suffering supporters to wear their hearts on their sleeves
and get the 5 wins we so badly need.
We have some very tough fixtures looming with 2 of the remaining
4 home games against promotion chasing Fulham and Birmingham as
well as tough away visits to Wolves, Preston, Blackburn and West
Brom, to say nothing of two journeys to Selhurst Park. I can’t really
see where the five wins are coming from, but I suppose that we’ll
just have to start on Saturday against Portsmouth and take it game
by game after that.
