Harry Faithman *UPDATED*

Harry Faithman *UPDATED*


Harry has faith, do you?

'West Brom have got the points in the bag so I'd much rather be sitting in their position six points in front with a much better goal average,' Redknapp told Sky Sports.

'Birmingham's position as well means we're favourites out of the three teams to go down but we've still got a strong belief here that we can get out of it. I believe we can and it won't be for the lack of trying.

'At the end of the season what will be will be, we've just got to concentrate, be positive and try to stay up. The players feel that way too and that's how I am as well.'

Register today and let me know, can we do it?

Harry went on to say;

"With that last-minute goal last week I thought maybe our luck has turned.

"It was a must-win game and we deserved to win the game. To get pegged back with six minutes to go I thought it was all over.

"But Pedro pulled something special out and it made a difference to the fans and all over the place. Let's hope we can make the most of those three points and build on it now.

"In the end you get what you deserve.

"We went to Tottenham in my first game back and conceded a penalty with minutes to go and lost over a terrible decision."

"There are still enough games left." "If we can win on Saturday it can all change. Then it really will be game on, said Harry.

"It's hard to tell how many points we'll need. We are six points adrift with a worse goal average so we need three more wins than West Brom, which isn't easy.

"But we have got games in London where we have got to look to win away from home - Charlton, Fulham, West Ham away.

"It is not Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea. They are all games where you have got a chance."

Enter Dave the Doom merchant. Well everything he says of course is feasible. The reality side of things is that all the struggling clubs will find something extra in their remaining fixtures. Look at West Brom last year. In that scenario we are the favourites for the drop, and quite rightly so. It will need an effort of herculian proportions to lift us into the safety zone, games such as Arsenal and Liverpool and even Blackburn are tough assignments. We have to ask ourselves do we really have the determination and ability to get out of this daunting task. I have asked myself a thousand times, the answer on each occasion is I don't think so.

The two games that spring to mind that ultimately will probably relegate us were both played in the same City.....and the winner is BIRMINGHAM. Yes the 5-0 drubbing and the poor result against Villa did nothing towards our cause. These were games that we had to get something from yet proved totally fruitless. This has now left us with beating better sides than these (excluding Sunderland) and that is what is going to make it so difficult. The team is starting to play better, what we truly need is more consistency, definitely more goals and maintain the self belief. I think it is too late, but I would still prefer the fat lady to remain backstage for as long as possible.

Fans favourite Colchester MotM...Exeter tomorrow

I do not think we can deny Chaplin made an impact when he came on against Colchester but as much as I love the guy (and think he's got an awesome future) was he really the MotM?
