Do We Look Down ... Or Up?

Saturday's point at Wolves was probably as good as any this season.

Its a tough place to go, and the fact United got a draw with an injury-ravaged side is another plus.

But, although sitting in 13th spot has us looking up the table, some of those down below us are improving with every match.

Watford continued their revival under former Newcastle coach Nigel Pearson with an impressive 3-0 win at Bournemouth took them out of the relegation zone and piled more misery on Eddie Howe.

Abdoulaye Doucoure, Troy Deeney and Roberto Pereyra gave the Hornets a deserved second away win of the season and saw them move out of the bottom three for the very first time this season.

It’s been an incredible rise for a team that looked dead and buried when they sacked their second manager of the season, but Pearson has given them hope, direction and more importantly points with this success their fourth win in five to take their tally to 13 points from the last possible 15.

Watford had everything a team down the bottom needs to suggest they’ll survive, with every player running their hearts out, winning most of their individual battles and having a definitely plan to work to – everything in fact that Bournemouth lacked as their terrible run continued.

Newcastle are five points away from the drop zone, but surely we are better than the seven clubs below us.
