Probably the trickiest itís been for a number of years. If someone twisted my arm I would probably say Norwich and Watford and then one other from another seven teams, of which we are one as it stands. Could be anyone currently.

Burnley are one of those teams, and thereís quite a few of which we are one, who know they are going down at some time, they just donít know when. Could be this season, could be next, who knows, but itíll happen eventually. That goes for Brighton, Wolves, Southampton etc etc. Itís just a matter of time.

No chance of Wolves going down. Same with Brighton.
This is our risky season- big transition but think weíre gonna be ok. Now we are buying young we should transform our financial position. Itís been a good window, replacing aged defenders in key positions and good players still to come into the team. As long as we can develop other players to replace Wilf in the next 2 years, weíve got as good a chance any of maintaining our presence in the PL.

I think that this team has a lot more backbone than in previous relegation dogfights and the recent purchases added to the juniors coming through and the squad will be good enough to survive with a bit to spare. It will depend on how the new structure will perform and how the new buys will fit in to a still changing line-up. Keep the faith.

What is clear to me is that without the changes we would have been more likely to go down this season. I still feel that it is likely to be any three from 8, namely Palace, Norwich, Watford, Brentford, Newcastle, Burnley, Southampton, Brighton.

Early season form is often different from later, remember Burnley didn't win for seven games at the start of last season. I suspect we will be close to the bottom three at Christmas but will pull away in the second half of the season.

What is really encouraging is that our best three players in the first three games this season are our three new signings. Hughes will add midfield depth, probably taking Kouyate or MacArthur's place for a number of games. We have Olise and Eze to come back, and maybe Ferguson, and Edouard coming in today.

It may be we have bad luck with injuries, which can affect any of the clubs with a lack of squad depth. We may yet go down, but this rebuild was essential.

I dont think there is no chance they will go down. Any team outside the "top 6" can go down at any stage (apart from everton)

Folk should be far more positive. The future is bright. A good management team with a point to prove. Some great signings with maybe more to come in the next window. The best fans in the league. Palace will finish top 12 no problem.

I know what you mean but when I say "no chance" I mean as good as no chance. There are teams in any one season that, even though not truly established like the big 6/7, have sufficient quality to overcome injuries in the squad or a run of bad luck. Wolves and Brighton are in that camp. That said, I'd laugh hard and enjoy being wrong, especially for the Weeds. And then you think about West Ham, Villa or Leeds - again I'd say little or no chance right now.

What was the last established team to be relegated? When Southampton went down, that was a shocker but since then, its not really happened to a decent squad.

This is me being positive, as others on here have said any team outside of the big 6 and probably Leicester, at the moment, and Everton could if things go badly go down. Newcastle and West Ham who most people consider big teams quite regularly get relegated, it is a fact of life.
This is a big season for us with lots of transisiton if all goes well we have squad for the next 4-5 years in the making but I am less confident we will stay up then this time last year.
However if we do go down I'm a lot more confident we are coming straight back up. As a club and not just a team we are in the best position I think we have ever been in.

Not sure about Brighton, they picked up 4 points against Fulham, West Brom and Sheff U last year. The only won one match against any team who finished below 13th. One injury that puts Bissouma out for a few months and they could well be facing relegation along with the rest of us. Well here's hoping anyway. There is definately value in their odds especially on back to lay basis
