WHO Poll
Q: 2018/19 Wolves (H)
a. At last we have a win now let's make it two, Win
b. A win against 10 men and two leagues below us is fine, but this will be much harder I'll take a point, Draw
c. Who are we kidding, a win against Wimbledon and all is rosy, forget it we're getting our arses kicked in this one, Lose
d. It's at times like these when you really do miss Love Island
e. I was all over this game until I found out it's not on the box, the broadcasting companies really don't care about us hard core fans do they, I might pop off to Thorpe Park for the day instead, obviously in my WHU shirt

Saturday football
The final Saturday of 2017 sees the bottom half of the Premier League as tight as it could be, with just 10 points separating the table’s entire lower half. That’s five points fewer than separate first and second, and one round of games can change things around dramatically.

BFS has had quite an impact since arriving at Everton. Clean sheets are the order of the day and he’s managed five of them in the Toffees’ last seven outings. Not so for Bournemouth, who had to rely on handball and highly dodgy refereeing to scramble a point in their last game. This will be a tough one for the Cherries, but they have make home advantage count. Draw.

Antonio Conte will be grateful for Man U’s seasonal generosity, which has kept the Blues in contention for the runners up spot. Stoke’s injury crisis will bring little cheer to under-fire boss Mark Hughes and Chelsea should cruise through this one with ease, which we’ll all be grateful for. Home win.

Few would have expected Huddersfield to be outside the bottom three at this point in the season. Even fewer would have seen Burnley hovering outside the top five. That’s football. The Terriers have depended largely on home form to get where they are and they’ll have to continue that if they’re to survive this season. Draw.

All the focus will be on a man who is not even employed by Liverpool yet, but Virgil van Dyke’s imminent transfer certainly sends out a strong message of intent from the red side of Merseyside. Will that boost his new team mates today? There’s a faint whiff of possible upset about this fixture, but form and league position should prevail. Home win.

15th may be playing 12th, but make no mistake – this is definitely a six pointer. The Geordies haven’t enjoyed the happiest end to 2017, and their home form has been surprisingly poor all season. Brighton’s away form and goalscoring has been similarly challenged of late, which makes this a tricky one to predict. Draw.

Where did it all go so wrong for Swansea? Many will point to Gary Monk’s dismissal. But that’s all in the past now and the Jack Army will be hoping for another new manager bump in confidence and form. Watford’s form has also dipped in recent weeks, but they should still be too strong for a side that seems destined for the drop. Home win.

It’s not been the happiest of Christmases for Man U, but they still occupy second spot and have a manager in dangerously sulky mode. The Saints will not be surprised by the departure of their star defender, but find themselves with a whopping transfer budget (assuming that’s what the £75m will be used for), which they must use wisely to counteract the forces of footballing gravity. But as we all know, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Home win.

Happy new year. Let’s hope it’s a good one, etc.

Young accepted the charge and has got 3 games
As has Kyle Naughton of Swansea who stamped on a Watford player when he thought no one was looking

True - we'll lose games like this and beat some big teams on the run in, knowing us

Re: Saturday football
We showed plenty of fight against Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Stock we need to repeat that. The problem will be that West Brom will probably try and close shop so we will be left with the option to attack, which we must do whilst being ready for any counter. Something we have not been good at recently.

Re: Saturday football
Not a good start to the new year waking with the hangover from hell to find out we are now below the team that didn't score a
goal for the first 7 games of the season.

WBA looked absolute toilet and if we can't beat that rabble then we deserve to go down

Re: Saturday football
We're extremely low on 'fighting' quality. I would say that of the people likely to be involved Ogbonna, Cresswell, Sakho, Chico, Ayew, Obiang, Kouyate, individually have little or none. Even people like Reid and Antonio can go missing. We lack any real character as a side.

By all accounts WBA looked halfway decent today so we're going to need to turn up.

Re: Saturday football
When have we ever won a 'fight for your life' six-pointer?

The playoffs don't really count or the cup run in '06. I honestly have trouble remembering anything after the Tevez season and we got a twenty million fine for that?

What I really want Moyes to do is install some backbone. We always go into these games thinking we can play our way out of trouble and we really can't. It's fight and grit that see you through these games.

Re: Saturday football
It is getting so tight, 4 points in it from 20th to 13th, 8 teams.
Really not hard to get to middle table, hope we can do it.

Dean acting the cunt again. Why don't they pension this bloke off?
I believe he's our ref against tottenham this week. Happy days...

Re: Saturday football
Assuming this ends in a draw, WBA will be off bottom. Amazing how much influence the terrible refereeing decisions have had recently.

and if they beat us, next up, they will push us down to 19th !

Probably a fair result but that’s a terrible decision by Mike Dean

How does he keep his job

Re: Saturday football
Pardew has the Baggies attacking Arsenal today and they are giving it a decent go. Let's hope they are knackered for Tuesday night,as I agree with nychammer a defeat then will be very bad for us.
All the teams around us are beginning to battle for their lives and we have to show the same fight to get out of the shit.

Re: Saturday football
Need to capitalize by bearing west brom, most important game of our season so far if you ask me. Win we could edge up a few places, lose and I think it's relegation nailed on.

If we can't beat a team at home who are bottom of the league, not won since August, will have played two games in 48 hours whereas we've had a week's rest and who will be without key players in Chadli and Rondon and who's mascot has even given up on them...then yes we deserve to go down.

I know were a charity club helping out the needy, but surely even this would be a bit of a stretch, even by our standards.

Re: Saturday football
Shame for Zaha?
He has cheated for about 3 pens this season and morons like Moss keep falling for it.
