WHO Poll
Q: Manuel Pellegrini
a. A great signing for the Club and maybe the change of direction we all need
b. It will only be a great signing if the Board back him with decent funds
c. This is West Ham so it will only end in farce
d. I'm not sure about this one, I'll wait until SKY is back to hear what Gary Neville thinks, then I'll voice my opinion

Off-topic thread? Check.

Looks like there are three teams in it. Villa already gone, leaving Sunderland, Norwich and Newcastle. 10 games to play, 11 for Newcastle, all three on 24 points. Six points separating Sunderland from Swansea.

Points needed for safety - 35?

Two more wins for Bournemouth will see them safe, which would be one of the great achievements of the Premier League era.

Funny old game, funny old season.

Re: Relegation
I think Palace & Bournemouth are all but safe now - i reckon about 35 points will be enough

Re: Relegation
just seen watford have 37 points - no chance of it being them then!!

i'll go one of newcastle/s'land/palace/b'mouth

Re: Relegation
I don't want Norwich to go down because Jarvis has a clause in his contract stating he comes back to us if that happens.

( I may have made the above up, so please don't have a heart attack at this piece of news)

Re: Relegation
still saying villa & norwich + one other.
could well be a mid tabel team on the slide like watford or palace?

Re: Relegation
With Aston Villa looking certs now, that will mean there will be two former European Cup winning clubs in English football's second tier.
I'm wondering if that has ever happened before in any other country's league?
Anyone know?

Re: Relegation
Ashley and Allardyce are human stains so happy for both of them to go down.

Don't want Norwich to go down because I wouldn't know how to boil an egg if it weren't for Delia.

Re: Relegation
Definitely think we're safe this year, but who knows

Fifth Column 5:09 Thu Mar 3
Re: Relegation
Norwich, Newcastle and Villa.

Allardyce is a more effective manager than McClaren even though Newcastle have a much better squad.

Alex V 5:07 Thu Mar 3
Re: Relegation
Norwich have Jarvis so will surely be pretty safe.

Re: Relegation
No wonder some teams expected to get into the Champions league are circling the wagons. They're being outplayed in the boardroom because they're getting lazy.

Or the yids, Liverpool or Everton??? (i'm stretching the big club term slightly)

Is it really that crazy? Leicester were 5000-1 to win the league last year (they probably would have been 10 times that when they were bottom at xmas to win the league the following year)

Just saying the landscape has changed massively, it's a far more level playing field and if shocks are gonna happen at the top end of the table then why not the bottom?

Re: Relegation
Villa are gone and Norwich are starting to make gurgling noises.
I wouldn't just restrict it to the NE teams as this Saturday Bournemouth are at Newcastle & Norwich at Swansea.
Newcastle are so shit away I suspect it might be them if they don't win on Saturday & can't win at home to Sunderland in a couple of weeks. That will be a massive game.

What? You mean like Man Utd, City, Chelsea or Arsenal?

Spandex Sidney 4:10 Thu Mar 3
Re: Relegation
I want Sunderland and Newcastle too but Norwich are so bad they look nailed on.

If I had to pick one, it'll be newcastle. I hate their fans and that twat ashley more than Sam, I have no beef with Sunderland other than the way they treated PDC

Re: Relegation
"Relegation"? What's that?

Have I even spelled it right?

Marston Hammer 1:13 Thu Mar 3
Re: Relegation
On a slight side note - how long before one of the so called big clubs get relegated?

With the extra sky money the established status quo has been well and truly shaken up. Mid-table and newly promoted clubs can now spend tens of millions on players without bankrupting themselves. Crazy seasons like this, where everyone beats & loses to everyone, will start becoming the norm and the days of a team going through the season with only a couple of defeats are long gone.

With all that said it is really that unlikely that one of the 'big teams' who spends poorly could find themselves getting relelgated?

i agree with that 100%

I like all of those hopes!

Re: Relegation
It's been great this season to have barely looked at the bottom half of the table. I just know we're nowhere near it for once :)

It's going to take a capitulation from Swansea or Bournemouth to see either of them go down now, I think. Simply can't see any of the bottom four making up those six points- let alone two of them.

Rossal 11:27 Thu Mar 3
Re: Relegation
Think it will be Norwich and the Toon

Hope it is Norwich and Sunderland or WBA

Marston Hammer 11:23 Thu Mar 3
Re: Relegation
My non-whu hopes for the rest of the season

Anyone but Spurs to win the league
BFS to get relegated
Man City to miss out on the top 4 so no Champions League for Guardiola
Liverpool to finish bottom half
