Take yourselves back two seasons. A very indifferent start to the season culminated in a November live TV game away against Wigan. We lost 1-0 and put on possibly the worst showing ever seen under Moyes (yes, it was THAT bad). After the gam,e you could tell Moyes was in a state of disbelief ? as I was too.
However, that game acted as some sort of trigger that galvanised the players (and manager?) to reach some impressive heights for the remainder of the season.
So, have things reached the lowest ebb against West Brom on Saturday? Does this mean that enough is enough and we start to show 200% drive and determination to go with our occasionally neat passing? Perhaps one of our ?strikers? will actually hit the net? my money's on Anichebe to achieve this first. He looked OK, and really does offer something different.
Bring on Chelsea, as if this was the Wigan effect, then they ought to be quaking in their pink boots! I?m done now, call the asylum to pick me up.

Still I'm off to Twickenham this weekend for the rugby, were I'll be guarenteed to have an eye on my phone for match updates. Hoping for the best.
Also Chelsea have been poor of lately. They are due to dish out a good spanking. Will it be us?

Kenwrights soundbites have long since gone stale and now Moyes has given into critisising individuals.
The supporters have mostly lost the faith so where is our inspiration to come from?

It will happen, and we'll be back to our strong selves once more, but we're 10 points off any meaningful European competition and the form doesn't look like its going to change any time soon.
Right now, I'd be happy if we could just top Liverpool but that will be touch and go also. Bring on January.

So I sort of agree with you Gareth, because I think last season we played Hull City almost a year to the day of playing Wigan and by all acoounts we were even worse. We've been here before and have come out the other side, it's just hard to be optimistic at the moment.

Not being in European football you would logically think that the domestic cups would take on greater importance. Still we get turfed out of the League Cup and continue to play like crap.

Cause and Effect and the cause is
No sorry, Moyes is not the cause he is the Symptom.
The real cause is 40 years of failure at Board level.
Oh and Fucking Murdoch and his Sky.
The cure short term is a new Coach
Long term ... a Miracle.
