Some small signs for optimism despite the ongoing saga over who revealed the team lineup to Crystal Palace the day before the game.
When we were on 24 points with 18 games to go I calculated we needed 1.55 points per game to reach 52 points (the highest total required in the last 10 years). Now on 3o points that is down to 1.46 points per game.
The performance level required for the remainder of the season when we were on 24 points was somewhere between the sixth and seventh placed teams at the time. The performance level now required on 30 points is somewhere between the tenth and eleventh placed teams
