Norwich will definitely go down

The other two are hard to call.


Watford could survive
Villa could survive (relies Grealish)


Palace really need to get to 40 plus points and quick.

Just take a look at the fixtures all the bottom teams have left, it will be very tough for all of them to achieve enough to overhaul us with our advantage of six as it is, we will need at least seven more I feel to survive quite easily.

Looking at the teams currently below us and hope they don't do well is "Olhamesque". Best to concentrate on what we can do in our games and then things will sort themselves out, for better or worse.

Not with Hodgson in charge. I feel for you guys who go to every home game

But when we had Zaha and Andros firing, Cabaye and RLC in the midfield we played some of the best football I can ever recall a Palace team playing....and Roy was the Manager. Just saying.

A lot of talk has revolved around us needing wing backs and strikers, and goalkeeper before that, but you are exactly right in my eyes (in bold). What boggles my mind is we have never invested in an attacking midfielder to link the front and middle 3's.

(PL era) We have always relied solely on the likes of Zaha and Bolasie to get us in the final third, Puncheon did well for a period. We have no other attacking plan and it's no wonder we don't score goals with the forwards and midfield almost completely isolated from one another. Whatever three are put in atm are only there to make up the numbers and lack athleticism, creativity or goal threat.

We might not get someone as good as he was that season but we've needed/need a player to link the midfield and attack similar to how RLC did. Cabaye was just class.

 


Here's to you the famous red and blue.....

Teams at the bottom increase the points per game average towards the end of the season. Maybe with the league so tight the teams outside of top 7 might try more so you could perhaps be right. Our run in is very concerning and we must get safe or virtually safe before.
