    I admit that the leaving of Rafa and vision of hope disappearing in the wake of his exit was the straw (and if you'll excuse the pun) that broke the camel's back.
    I've got mates with season tickets or even multiple season tickets, who have not let the big lad ruin their football as much as its effected my faith. Maybe we were spoilt by the Keegan years.

    Anyhow, I can wear some of my tops and realise that there's some hope that we'll get a chance to compete, stop playing to finish fourth bottom and in the next few years even win something.

    Whatever happens I just hope that our fans enjoy the ride.

    The main thing is to avoid relegation this season.

    I think we're in a false position at the moment, due to some key injuries, as well as the tactics set up.
    Get Wilson back and sooner or later Dubravka, and our points tally might get going. We won't be in the bottom three in January.

    The dust has settled and the fans are overwhelmingly behind Eddie Howe. He's instantly connected with fans and it looks like he's a major step up from Steve Bruce.

    Starting training far sooner and aiming to get the players fitter. He plays attacking football, he'll have our 1st choice keeper back. We'll play a different type of game altogether and stop parking the bus with 10 men behind the ball.

    After the start we've had I'd take finishing 17th, which is ironic.

    Happy days, everyone fired up and I'm hoping to start picking up a few wins.

    Two consecutive wins and a great performance against Everton. Best I've seen us play in years.

    Early days, not out of the woods, but I hope we can keep going.

    Watching last night's game I felt something very strange - hope - I'm not entirely sure how to handle that because it's been so long.
    2 consecutive wins and I'm feeling the changes, the team looked like they wanted to be there last night, that they might actually be a 'team' rather than a bunch of footballers wearing the same jerseys .......
    And Saint-Maximin .... he had some inspired moments last night when my Spurs Fan husband was doing that 'I wish he played for my club' look

    You're 3rd in the form table for 2022, same amount of points as Man City.

    I thought this might happen. Down near the bottom and then along comes a new coach. A couple of losses and then suddenly, wins start to come thick and fast. But, it's just a flash in the pan because lose one, momentum broken and then normally a winless run follows and true form comes to the fore. Losing to ten man relegation strugglers after the loss at Chelsea? Not a good sign, You had better get back to winning ways asap. I've seen this happen with so many teams so you're not unique.
