I thought the defeat to Bolton which knocked us out of the FA cup was hard to take, especially after our recent home form has been so good, but at least we can fully concentrate on the league now. Something that Birmingham, Villa and Everton can't say.

How are your nerves after the Blackburn game? Still jangling ? Yup, me too. A fantastic result on Saturday it has to be said, however we still find ourselves in the drop zone.

It was almost indescribably important that we beat Blackburn on Saturday if we're to have any chance of beating the drop. Our next three league games are against a resurgent Liverpool and then the two Manchester clubs. I'm sorry if I sound like a negative so-and-so but it's quite concievable that we might not pick up any points in any of those matches. That said, under Martinez we always seem to give the big clubs a decent game when we play them.
