Yes our relegation odds have tumbled already. Preemptively so in my view, due to how some see the style of management impacting our results perhaps. I'm far less doom and gloom than the odds suggest..

I feel that if we can stay up this season we can really kick on in the next two or three seasons with all the young and emerging players that can only get better.

I lived in Newcastle for several years and you are correct

They spend all their time booing the players off the pitch, booing the manager, "protesting" against the owner. Look at the grief they even gave Bobby Robson before he left for the second time. He was even spat on.

So if that counts as support then they are welcome to it.

Norwich, Watford, and Southampton for me.

With Southampton they lost some important players (Ings, Vestergaard).

Ings' goals and all round play were so important to them last season, its asking a lot of Armstrong to be able to step into that void. I think Armstrong will do ok, but not good enough

Newcastle are another candidate, Wilson cant stay fit for long, and without him they look a bit blunt

Just do not understand why we are suggested to be in the relegation mix given our superb transfer window AND retaining Wilf.
They are all wide of the mark as we will easily maintain a mid table or above season end.

Correct but the move to mid table will start later in the season.

We are a good punt now for top half finish...

I wish I could be that optimistic. Yes we've had a great window but at this stage we don't know whether Vieira is a good manager or not and we've no idea if Eduardo will do the business or not. Time will tell.

The bottom line is we have better players but do they possess the nous to beat the teams around us? The smash and grab at Brighton? No. I think we'll tend to beat teams if we deserve to. Roy ALWAYS kept the points ticking over regardless of how we played. Can Pat? We'll find out. But the doubt isn't without merit.

 


If you want to live in a world full of kindness, respect and love, try to show these qualities.

I am naturally a "glass half full" person, but I worry about the degree of optimism being shown. We all know how tough the PL is. There aren't any bankers. Playing the big boys at their own game will make for attractive football, but as they are better at it than we are likely to be, will it produce many points?

The teams who play on the counter, as we used to, will grind out points against us.

So I think we need to keep our feet on the ground. This could be a long, hard season.

I agree with this - optimistic but cautiously. I still think we've a serious lack of quality on the flanks and at full back. Also pace / intensity.
