The Cottagers reached the 40-point mark some weeks ago, but are without a win since the beginning of April, and are still not mathematically safe from the dreaded drop.

Jol knows this, and believes that his players have taken their foot off the gas a little too early.

"Maybe we reached the 40 point mark too soon," he told Sky Sports following the 4-2 home defeat by Reading.

"In hindsight, if we hadn't, then maybe we would be playing with a little more determination than we are at the moment.

"Today's performance was a bit embarrassing, especially in the first half."

With only two games left in the Premier League season, Jol's side sit five points clear of the relegation places, but with difficult fixtures to come, he may have to rely on other sides slipping up.

"We have two tough games to come," he added.

"But sides down at the bottom have to play each other, so we will see what happens."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
