Whooah! Here we go. The battle for survival starts in earnest today with a must win clash with Brighton. Losing to Leicester and Liverpool was of no real consequence, but anything less than a win today and we are truly slipping towards the dreaded Chumpionship.
In fairness to Messrs Gold and Sullivsn, they have brought in what we appeared to need in a goalie, physical midfielder and a forward which should raise hopes of a revival but, as always, new players will take time to settle in.
The signing of Tomas Soucek looks really exciting as he is the stand out player in the Czech league as a big midfield presence and captain of mighty Slavia. His performance for the Czechs in their recent win over England suggests that he will adjust quickly and you've really got to be excited at the potential partnership with Declan Rice.
Wednesday was disappointing in terms of the result but you'd have to be encouraged by a decent and disciplined performance where, with a modicum of luck, we could have stolen a point. Just now, luck isn't bouncing in our favour but if we can keep up morale the final six games are all very winnable.
Brighton are a bit out of sorts of late. This is a great opportunity to grab 3 points. Their tippy tappy style will suit Moyes men as they look to assert dominance. As fans, we REALLY need to get behind the team today.
Special mention for young Ngakia - what a baptism of fire on Wednesday and he handled it very well. With a steady head and lots of pace he can team up with newbie Jared Bowen and restore a counterattacking dimension that has been sorely missing and that allows teams to push up against us.
Antonio is fit. Soucek should come off the bench. Let's do this!
