Who gets relegated this year?

Recommended Posts

Of the newly promoted teams, I think Newcastle will be fine, but Huddersfield will be near the danger zone and I'm not sure about Brighton (they could be near bottom or close to Newcastle).

 

I don't really think Burnley have added much, so with some injuries/poor luck, they could definitely go down, but Dyche knows how to get them organized and play well.

 

I think Swansea and Palace are in serious danger. West Ham, Watford, and West Brom definitely aren't a gaurantee to stay up.

 

My bottom three though:

 

Huddersfield

Swansea

Burnley

According to my predictions table, I apparently think Brighton, Stoke and Burnley. After seeing Stoke play against us, I don't think they're all that bad so I'd replace them with Swansea, especially with their best player gone.

I thought all of the promoted sides did well last weekend. It will be interesting to see how they get on.

 

I would love to see Newcastle go down, Crystal Palace don't look the greatest and haven't bought well. Plus both of these have had AllarDyce before and he won't go back!

Quite often the case, isn't it? Then they tend to start running out of steam pretty quickly

I think Swansea could do ok. They were pretty solid defensively today until that 2nd goal went in and then they fell apart. They appear to have played two form sides so far. They just need to find a way to threaten themselves.

West Ham* and Palace are certainly making the early case for their respective relegations. Wow, both sides have shown nothing so far this season.

 

*Edit* Romey - glad you saw I meant West Ham and not Newcastle haha.

That's what you get when you stick with a shit manager (West Ham) and hire a shit manager (Palace).

 

Two managers a lot of our fans would've loved here.

Hands up, I'd have had Bilic based on his time as Croatia manager and how good Beskitas looked on that Europa run they had - looked a good shout too after his first season at West Ham... how wrong it seems I was!!!

Funny you say that, because there were many shouts of trying to bring in Bilic while he was still managing Croatia and De Boer was arguably one of the most popular names for us to get after Martinez.

 

Would be shocking to see West Ham go given their move into the new stadium and "more ambitious" attitude

I just never got the hype with Bilic. I don't even know why, just a gut feeling.

Shocking and fucking hilarious :lol:. Their deluded fans think they've had a better transfer window than us.

Obviously being on the wrong side of the pond isolates me from a lot of fan groups bar social media, but it does seem that West Ham and Newcastle take the prize for having deluded fan bases.

 

I think people love the quotable, guitar playing, cigarette smoking man that is Bilic, but I don't think he's cut out to manage in a top league. Probably belongs managing one of the big clubs in Turkey, Portugal, Greece, etc.

Per my other thread - Clement sacked.

Swansea, West Brom, Newcastle, and Stoke look in definite trouble at the moment. Barring a big turn around, the best any of these sides look like they can hope for is to finish just above the bottom three.

Bournemouth are in a precarious position and concede enough goals to make me think they won't finish too many points off 18th, but play well enough to make me think they can avoid relegation. Brighton have been on a poor run and another poor month will really drag them right into the mix and there is a ton of negative sentiment around Southampton and their manager.

That for me. the gulf between decent sides and relegation fodder grows each year.

right on with swans, palace and brighton looking decent, altough i can see brighton doing a slow decline and slowly drop down the table to relegation.  missing some quality in that team.

huddersfield will continue to drop points just like brighton, plus they don't have the money to reinforce in january.  i can see them both creep into the relegation battle by campaigns end.

Huddy's high work rate makes me wonder if they can play the way they do still in March-May... That and I don't think they have any squad depth - some injuries set in and fatigue, they could be pulled into this come the end of season. That being said, they continue to pick up plenty of points but also suffer some bad defeats.

Brighton could slide because they don't have enough in the final third. 

I still think these two are much better than Swansea and West Brom - those two teams are DIRE and Stoke is in quite a crisis as well. Things change though and can change quick

Bournemouth look to be clear of the mess - Huge win for Southampton today, didn't see that coming. West Brom could get cut adrift if they don't pick up a win or two soon, and Huddersfield are sinking faster than the titanic. Also a massive win for Brighton

Not looking good for West Brom and Stoke - I have good friends (and a WBA supporting father-in-law) which support both so don’t want either to go. I must have picked my mates wisely as, however shite we are, we’re generally better than West Brom, Stoke, Wolves, Villa, Forest and Leeds who my closest friends support... there is, as usual, the token Kopite but he’s a typical been there but once, wore Chelsea shirts when they got good, ex-Villa STH, so his opinions don’t count.

I wouldn’t mind in the slightest if West Brom Soton and stoke are the ones that go down.  Although palace and Huddersfield are still in the mix too. 

 

Players id take off the relegated if they stand

 

soton - Redmond, Cedric 

stoke - none

west brom - none

Wouldn’t take Bertrand too?

And looking in total control, Chelsea looked uninterested and then......bam.

I am not sure if it is correct or not but I kinda remember an interview during this summer with Conte where he says "I wouldn't imagine this tempo keeps you busy all the time and I think I am tired after last year's success." and it caused speculations on him. It is obvious that Chelsea is not passionate like they were last year but it is always tough to play against the teams in the relegation spot. They have nothing to lose. I am always scared for those sides...

Had Stoke been able to hold onto the win against West Ham, it would've made this relegation battle a whole lot more interesting as they would've moved only 3 points behind Swansea (17th). Still, Southampton are playing better stuff as are Stoke and Huddy and Brighton have terrible run-ins while Swansea are starting to really struggle again.

Huddersfield will escape because they get to play us.
