    Until we get said players back, we are in a relegation battle. Clubs with more points than us have said they are in a battle so why arent we.

    I am encouraged by his transfer comments though. I understand he has to be cautious but id like to think privately he is really going to go for it.

    Had to laugh at the tit on sunday supplement this morning who said we should just stick with what we have got. Why is that? so we stay away from the top 4?

    Jeez this guy takes the biscuit i know he is fighting to keep his job but to say we are not in the relegation fight is just plain stupid. Ok we are technically 4 points from the bottom 3 because of our goal difference but i'm sure you'll all agree the prospect of losing just 1 game and others winning 1 will bring us level on points with third bottom :( if this happens who knows how low we could actually fall and what effect this will have on the players.

    I wonder when MH will wake up and have to guts to walk away and give us a chance to turn round the mess he has created, but i wont hold my breath as he will proberly wait to be sacked. I'm predicting we will actually see the likes of Robinho, Jo, Richards and SWP all looking to abandon the sinking ship MH has created at our club.

    To be honest I don't see us getting involved in a relegation battle but it was the quote in the Sunday Times that got me

    "It was not a game we expected to win"

    Really? Talk about aiming high and the 'winning mentality'

    I expected the game to be hard. I don't anticipate us winning every game. But I do expect the manager to lead us into games such as this with an expectation of winning the bloody thing. How on earth this is expected to inspire the players is beyond me.

    The warm embrace of mediocrity is still providing comfort for MCFC

    How can it be called a relegation battle less than halfway into the season?

    If we are still in 13th with 10 games left, then I would say its a 'battle', right now everybody is just jostling for position. Its a fooking marathon, not a sprint.

    I find it interesting that your focus is on 'within two weeks we could be in the relegation zone' rather than that in two weeks we could be 7th.

    I can just hear a whole bunch of people shouting " Oh yes we are " - it is pantomime season after all.
