There is no doubting tonight’s game is a six pointer. But in reality a draw is good enough. It still gives daylight between us and the bottom three.
But one crucial point that Sherwood and the team do not seem to grasp is that every point is valuable no matter if it does not seem that way at the time. The result v Stoke could easily have been avoided and to do the same thing against Swansea is either naive or complete stupidity. We could easily be sitting on an extra 2 points now and it is ridiculous we have not done so.
When myself a I am sure most posters on here were taught football as kids one of the basic mantras we learned is ‘if you can’t win a game then don’t lose it’. One of the reasons Sherwood had a good win percentage at Spurs was he either won a game or lost a game with hardly any draws. This is fine when you are midtable with nothing to lose but Sherwood must change this philosophy starting with tonight.
I am no fan of Sherwood’s and he has been found out already as a decent motivator with the tactical IQ of a water melon!
Having said that I still think he has enough about him to keep us up and whatever happens tonight I expect us to still be playing in the premier next season. My prediction is Villa 3 Qpr 1. UTV
