    7 or more is a decent return from that.

    You never seem to have any views or options on SFC.

    5 points. Will keep us about 15th/16th.

    Definitely bottom half this season and won't be far off the bottom 3 unfortunately, home form particularly concerning.

    No reason we can't get a win or three but it won't be easy. City's the only write-off.

    Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal are the three top 6 sides easily there for the taking this season.

    Everton are meh, some good players on paper but no real fight in them.

    Wolves are struggling as well. Leicester will play out from the back so if our pressing game is on point we could hurt them.

    Last year that would have been a very difficult run of games, this year not so much IMO. Also if we are out of the relegation zone after that run then not too bad as we would have played 13, and would have played all the top 9 from last year in those fixtures.

    Betting on us to lose them all, lessens the pain or something

    5-7 points IMHO

    I think it will be important for all involved to be realistic. So far we have only played one non top 6 side at home and now we have this death run. The second half of the season will be much easier. I already feel like people are freaking out with talk of our "weak home form" after 2 of our 3 home games being against Liverpool and United.

    We have 7 points from 6 games, that has us on for about 45 points a season. That is the same point total Puel got to bring us 8th. Just remain calm, remember comfortable mid table finishes imply atleast a few losses against teams of Bournemouth size, and try not to panic. We should be fine.

    Don't we have to play all the same teams again in the second half of the season?

    Yes, but we will have teams like Brighton, Sheffield, Burnley at home. We will admittedly have big teams like Liverpool away but we won't be expected to beat them in either so it's kind of a moot point.

    Indeed. I'd expect us to be competitive in all those games, except against City. Why anyone would be worried about facing Wolves or Everton on current form, I don't know.

    Looks a tough run. The most winnable games are Wolves and Everton.
    We really need to take 7 points minimum but 3-4 looks more likely.

    I make it 5 points thanks to a point each from Wolves and Leicester and 3 from Everton, unless Ralph continues to fart-arse about playing players out of position and then I expect zero points.

    TBF, could be worse.

    Wolves, Leicester, Everton and Arsenal are all possibly points IMO.

    Wolves have been awful this season so far, Leicester are very good but we're at home, Everton are poor, Arsenal are flakey at times. Predicting 6 points from those 7 games, which wouldn't be awful.

    Max 2 wins, if we can pick up our home form. If we don't beat pompey, that run of fixtures could see a lot start to turn on Ralph.

    I think he'll come good even if we lose the lot of those and would rather stick with him, but can't say I've enjoyed the season so far. Hopefully once Redmond and Djenepo are fully fit and starting together each week things will improve.

    That'd be 12 points by the end of November.

    Hughes was sacked with 9 points by the end of November.

    Progress... ?

    That's a 33% increase in points!

    Seriously though, I'd say that's more to do with the fixtures. Look at our home games; Chelsea, Man Utd, Liverpool, Leicester, Bournemouth and Everton. None of them are easy. Hughes by comparison had failed to beat Brighton, Burnley, Leicester, Watford, Newcastle, Man Utd and Chelsea when he was sacked.

    only looks ominous on paper, we should be looking to take points from every game except city

    my prediction 7 points starting with a loss to chelsea

    some of the predictions on here are not going to age well.

    The way we're playing, we'll lose them all - but beat Everton at home, naturally.

    It's all going a bit Pellegrino.

    We'll lose a few that we thought we might win and win a few that we had no hope for. Typical Saints, always hard to predict.

    A significant factor in the way things are going now is that none of our summer signings are contributing at present.

    Djenepo is injured, possibly long-term, Adams can't get off the mark and confidence is fading away, Danso hasn't been given a chance except in the wrong positions. I know Ings is technically a signing, but he isn't a change.

    Add to that the sale of Targett and many loans out and the squad currently being used is actually weaker than this time last year
