Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Watford left Wanderers without a win in the npower Championship since the turn of the year, fifth bottom and three points above third-bottom Barnsley - albeit with a game in hand.

"I don't think that way and anyone who wants to help the club shouldn't think that way either," said Whites boss Freedman when asked about relegation.

"I'm more concerned about us winning games of football. We're not far away from these teams.

"We just need that little bit of luck. I've been here 1,000 times as a player and a manager. We've got the qualities in the squad to springboard us up the league.

"We're in a difficult moment where we feel everything is going against us. We'll regroup, we stand together and we'll springboard up, no problem."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
