sky commentator just said that in 8 out of the last 9 seasons , 37 points guaranteed survival.

so fear not the dreaded freak run of results.


We may not be playing pretty, but thank you Croydon-Roy.

from the Etihad, Emirates, Molyneux, London Stadium, the Vitality, turf moor & Anfield to Old Trafford x 2.....or a neighbourly visit to Craven Cottage...Raptors on the Road

more like thanks west brom for the pen, similar thanks go to brighton and fulham who should have beaten us soundly.
I cant honestly see any strategy or cohesion when we have the ball.BUT hey ho we're safe and apparently thats all that matters on here.

Safe with NINE games to go is an incredible achievement considering all the injuries and lack of investment.

Yes the football has not been too great but most of the other premier league games have been similar - not much real quality on offer apart from the occasional decent game.

So well done Roy and the players for getting the job done so early.

Hopefully once fans return we will see more urgency and passion from all the teams

37 points with 9 games to,play. Surely we must muster at least another 5 - 8 points so 42 - 45 points must be an achievable total -now the pressure is off !

It is unbelievable that safety is all that matters on here. As someone else said, we should have been beaten by Brighton and Fulham. Nothing to do with tactics or good old Croydon Roy!!! Honestly the excuses he gets because he is one of our own is pathetic

Ultimately, safety is the bottom line for a club like ours with a ton of injuries and no investment.

Statements like "we should have been beaten by Brighton and Fulham" are meanlinless as we didn't

Like it or not, Roy seems to get the job done with games to spare.

I'm not a massive fan of his but have to acknowledge what he has ultimately achieved with very limited resources

Its not. Its about enjoyment, pride and being part of the club. Weve become a nothing team with no identity and are just making up the numbers.

My bet is that if Roy remains next season there will be a lot of empty seats at Selhurst Park. The life has been sucked out of us and we have nothing to offer without Zaha. We just hang in for dear life every game in the hope we might nick a goal, which amazingly weve been doing recently.

So true, but at times it is a hard watch.

We've hit 37 points and, barring snookers, we are safe.

Maybe now is the time to start giving some of our promising youngsters a chance of playing with the big boys. You never know, even Matata may get some more game time

People are saying we were lucky against the weed and Fulham. No we weren't lucky. Our defence did their job, and did it bloody well.

It wasn't lucky that their strikers couldn't hit a cow's arse with a banjo, it was because they just weren't good enough.

Benteke's last gasp goal against the weed, in a game against what many feel are our fiercest rivals, at their place, for me, made my season. As well as the satisfaction of unexpectedly winning, it gave me great joy to think of the weed fans putting their heads in their hands in horror, foaming at the mouth in rage, throwing things at their telly, shouting rude words and generally be in a state of deep unhappiness

Obviously its great that we have 37 points and are nearly safe.

But it is undeniable that we got away with it against Brighton, Fulham and WBA and our football is so negative and hard to watch.

Fingers crossed we see a different approach to the remaining 9 games.

A total of 7 pts from 3 games and only 1 goal conceded.
Rather good!

Willow sir - I concur 7 points is not to be sniffed at.
But watching us play this year has Ben bloody hard going.
