    would rather see reading and us go up than west ham - i also would love to win the title, but in all fairness couldnt care less where we finish as long as it is top two. Also the team that wins the title, normally struggles i nthe Prem, look at QPR compared to norwich and swansea.
    Correct. However, I think the main problem with QPR is they ripped apart much of the team that got them promotion and replaced them with many so called "premier experienced" players (e.g Barton). Whilst Swansea and Norwich kept the faith with much of what they had and just added some quality strength in key areas. I hope this is what Saints do, and I am sure they will (should we go up)! Whilst many of the pessimists will point at our wobbles at times and say "we would not survive in the prem with this team", if you look, Norwich had a few similar wobbles last year, and they are doing superb with the majority of the team unchanged."

Allardyce: we need a favour from Saints



First published in Sport

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has all but given up on the Championship title after a dramatic comeback against Birmingham earned his side a sixth draw in seven home matches.

Ricardo Vaz Te rescued a point for the Hammers, who were 3-1 down at half-time, with an 89th minute penalty.

But leaders Saints are now six points clear of the third-placed Irons with four games to go.

And Allardyce knows he needs the table-toppers to do his men a big favour by beating Reading at St Mary’s this Friday.
