What is the 'cost' of relegation?
With so much more television money coming in for Premier League clubs as of next season, combined with our dirt cheap rent and increased capacity, we should be raking it in starting this season and increasing next. However, not only are we largely doing things on the cheap but we might be relegated if form doesn't improve soon, then we would miss out on a lot of the financial growth gained simply for being in the English top flight.

Does anyone know any actual figures on this? What would be the difference between the money awarded to us following relegation and the money we would get for staying up? Not to mention tv appearance fees and the propensity for any decent players to want to come to us without using silly money as a bribe.

I know the difference is significant, but how much are we talking?

Not you, Fivestar, you haven't got a clue.

Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
Bilic gets hardly any of the abuse that Allardyce got, even at our most limp. If we fail to beat Burnley and Hull and also keep the score respectable against Liverpool, his position will be untenable.

Relegation will be far worse if Leeds get promoted and Millwall fail to get promotion. What games would be interesting down there?

Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
I think it's hard to work out the true cost, as I a assume any well run club will have relegation clauses in players contracts these days, so that at least the wage bill is reduced, when a team goes down.


This is actually a reasonable article on the subject ,of extra money earned on promotion.

Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
It would be interesting to see how many season ticket holders did not renew. The devil in me wants it to happen, just fuck Brady over, and to see how the board reacts. BFS is still available...

The cost of relegation will be not seeing many Championship games on telly so I'll have to make more return trips to London to see my club play....

I agree with you mate. But I think the test will come after the Liverpool game. We have a run of what we would regard as winnable games. If we get tonked in those games then we may both be wrong.

And I also think that little stretch of fixtures will be Bilic's last chance to save his job.

No need for the two Daves to sell players in January to get their loans repaid. The parachute money will sort that out- the bottom club gets 100 mill I understand.
The rent reduces to 1.25 mill.pa.
We lose all the tourists plus Brady will abscond to the gooners. It's all good!

I think Leicester most definitely are in the relegation mix.

Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
While Ogbonna is in the team, there's every chance we'll be relegated

Reece OXFORD should be in the side as soon as he's fit, and we should bring back Reece BURKE on 1st January.

Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
Interesting that we're only one point behind Leicester and no-one thinks they will drop. I believe that you can be 'too good to go down' Why do you think when big clubs struggle sometimes they never end up dropping? Did anyone think Chelsea would go down last season? No. Why? You know the answer. We aint Chelsea, but we are too good to finish 18th or below.

My way of seeing it is that there's a huge confidence problem. Individual player's self-belief and joint confidence in their team mates. The best way to sort that out is to get a couple of decent results. Unfortunately, the coming fixtures don't suggest that'll be any time soon. We more than have the ability and we definitely shouldn't be where we are.

Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
We could easily go down this season, we could be Bottom at xmas. Simple way to look at it is knowing how bad Swansea are we're only 3 points above them. We're in for the long haul and if the dildo bros thinks it's a possibility they will sell our best players in Jan to get those loans repaid to themselves.

Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
There needs to be significant changes for us to avoid relegation. Players and attitude. Defensively we're a shambles, we have two average keepers. No shape at the back, a midfield that can't keep possession and are slow up top. Our reliance on sakho is massive as he's our only forward to stretch teams.

Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
= too good to go down

I think Bilic has got more in his locker than Grant or Roeder.

Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
We won't go down as this group of players won't be this shit for 9 months, at some point we will win a few on the bounce and then the league looks different. You have to be really shit to go down, even the season under Grant we could have still stayed up with 2 games left..

Really?

Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
Because other teams concede more and score less.

wrighty 9:15 Mon Dec 5
Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
Why don't people think we'll get relegated? We consistently concede goals and don't score many!

Coffee 9:12 Mon Dec 5
Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
I agree. I don't think we'll get relegated.

But the cost of relegation on WHO will be pages and pages and more pages still of mutual recrimination. The I Told You So's will continue into next century. Sales of Prozac in Essex will kick-start the global economy.

Re: What is the 'cost' of relegation?
We won't be getting relegated.

I'll be lumping on us finishing in the top half after the Liverpool game.

"but we might be relegated"

No "might" about it. A massive change needs to happen to avoid it
