    Just wondered if anyone had much interest in this. My main interest is in Hull, I’ve very good friends who support them and Silva seems like a great guy and a good manager - unbeaten at home, at Hull or his previous clubs in three years - I’m actually hoping that if his career stays on the up he could manage us one day...

    Sunderland are obviously down, and it shows just how c**p Moyes is - - read this: “I’m looking forward to winning trophies and being successful again,” Err, this is what he’s ‘won’ so far: Football League Second Division 1999-00 with Preston North End; Community Shield 2013-14 with Manchester United ... and Sunderland have already said he’ll stay for next season - those poor fans...

    Boro also look dead to me, seem to have added nothing to the PL.

    So for me it’s those two, plus one of Palace, Swansea or Hull.

    I do think Hull could well stay up, because of the above and also Palace have 5 of the top 6 to play and even though one of those matches is against us and therefore very winnable ;) I think they are in big trouble

    Swansea seem to have lost their way big time – they even lost to West Ham – but their run-in isn’t as bad as Palace so maybe they will scrape some points

    So I think it will be

    16 – Hull

    17 - Swansea

    18 - Palace

    19 - Boro

    20 – Sunderland

    Palace won't get relegated, tough fixture list but I back them to grind out more points.

    yeah i think it will be close between them and Swanseea, it's just that run-in and the fact those teams all have a lot to play for in terms of the top 4 etc

    Would love to see Fat Sam & Palace getting relegated. Sadly, I think it'll more likely be either Hull or Swansea, probably the latter.

    Moyes is a charmless, uninspiring manager whose sides play some dour stuff. Good riddance to Sunderland - they've been an eyesore and barely clinging on to PL status for a few years now. Boro can also do one.

    Looking forward to watching Brighton & Huddersfield in the league next year.

    yeah me too re Fat Sam, though they do have that run-in and Chelsea victory notwithstanding, now people are more wary of them maybe they'll find it more difficult.

    but otherwise yes really hope it's Swansea, Silva doesn't deserve to be relegated IMO

    Silva will keep Hull up I feel, Swansea will probably go down as a result.

    bingobob He played for Celtic? Sign him up!

    Really couldn't care less. I enjoy it when the teams that over committed themselves in the EPL with minuscule fan bases explode upon relegation. Foundations on quick sand.

    Sunderland and Boro all but gone. I think Swansea may join them.

    tbf i don't think Hull have done that, not sure if it's because they simply don't have the resources or because they have chosen not to over-extend themselves. Also i seem to recall Swansea under that great philosopher Brendan Rogers stuck with much of the team and playing style that originally got them into the PL

    also that's the kind of thing that smaller clubs' fans say is really arrogant about fans of teams like Arsenal who are (now) so used to being at the top of the table they don't know what it''s like to be one of the 'lesser' teams - but those teams enjoy their days in the sun adn increasingly outdo expectations - I'm sure Lecester fall into your category but look at what they achieved

    and who would you have rather been on Monday night - an Arsenal fan or a Palace fan?*

    *to which, yes, i know the answer is an Arsenal fan because a) it's Arsenal and b) Palace is in South London which is s***e but hopefully you get the point...

    Whoever goes, Brighton are coming up as it stands. A day out at the seaside next year! A friend of mine supports Brighton, so I'm pleased for him.

    Yeah. Meanwhile, Gollum is driving Wonderland down the hole and the fans want him gone.

    '“We want Moyes out,” chorused home fans after André Ayew gave Slaven Bilic’s visitors a fifth-minute lead and the crowd booed the Scot every time he ventured out of his dug-out, including when he went to collect a couple of loose balls.

    “I did hear the chants,” admitted Moyes, whose side scored their first goals in eight games. “But they were to be expected. You have to take it. I just remembered that I’ve got the third or fourth best win record of any Premier League manager."'

    The nerve. :lol:

    It's kinda normal that at least one team who went from Chamionship to EPL came back to lower division after only one season in EPL.Boro and Hull are there and Burnley will stay for another year.Only twice in EPL happend that all three teams stayed up after one season and only once all three teams went down after one season.

    I'm not, they built that new stadium in the middle of a natural landscape and it sticks out like a giant wart - they were allowed to break every bloody planning law in the process

    And I speak as someone who once went to watch them at the Goldstone many years ago (poor game it has to be said)...

    Do Brighton play open football? Should be 6 points for us next season if so.
