Lending a helping hand...

It started when they lost to Norwich. Now, today it was time for the Baggies. And this one really should have been in the bag. the only problem is that when teams are fighting to stay in the Premiership, they are usually more up for a fight. Today was really no different.

We started the game on fire. Giggs looked like his old self again and appeared ready to pounce at any time. Then a bit of bad luck for the Baggies keeper timed with a perfectly placed free kick from Giggsy to give us the lead. A keeper switch only made things look more appealing. But the it happened. they started saving everything.

The rest was a bit of a blur. I remember shot after shot being saved, and then there was a penalty kick. 1-1. And that's how it stayed. Even bringing on Scholes, Rooney and Saha wasn't enough. mind you, in my opinion, Fergie should have left Smith on...that guy was fired up, but at least he's committed.

And I can't help but think that the teams residing in the cellar are loving us right now. And with Southampton up next weekend, after a midweek tilt with Chelsea, I'm not sure what to even think.

I really think we need some house cleaning in the summer. It'll be interesting to see what happens.
