As we speak those odds are heading south. 11/1 in a place but some now single figures. Those that think we are not in a relegation battle need to take their heads out of the sand….that includes you Steve.

Edit: Skybet still offering 18/1. They are keeping the faith!

So hopefully you took my advice to take 25/1 and cash out when the odds shorten i.e now!

 


Palace since 19 August 1972. Palace 1 (Tony Taylor) Liverpool 1 (Emlyn Hughes)

Everton are not going down. West Ham are not going down.

Saints always find a way to survive in the second half, against all odds.

Who does that leave? Bournemouth...After that, it's easy to see us being dragged into the mix, especially given we don't play another "bottom 10" team until March...

I don't think this squad right now has the necessary fight if we end up in a relegation battle. Out best bet is to stay above it, but that isn't going to be easy given our schedule.

I envisage us staying above it, just, until March where we will pick up a few points and wins and the grief will turn to how high up the table we may have finished if x, y and z as opposed to worrying about relegation.

Just my very humble opinion.

 


Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

And an uncharacteristically optimistic one!

Must be something in the water.

I also can see us getting three points tomorrow. I've a GP appointment at 0930 to get to the root of this.

I would have agreed with you but I think the performance on Wednesday showed they probably have. Everton have got real problems throughout the club they may not go down but they won’t be far away. I don’t rate Leeds either.

"We are NOT going down" (Cornelius Fudge)

Actually, I can well see at least one if not two out of Everton, West Ham and Southampton failing to beat the drop this season.

Another set of games goes by and we are still 7 points clear of the zone. Looking in the other direction we are 7 off europe!

Despite some saying saints and everton wont go down I personally feel that everton are broken and that saints have had their good run which ended yesterday.

Looking at historical data I believe we need 36/37 points this season. Which is another 12/13 points from 18 games.

The key games are those between the bottom seven and everton lost the first of theirs yesterday.

Outstanding! Who says we aren't a half glass full group of supporters?

If anyone still thinks we will go down we are best priced 16-1 to go down. Its 5-1 top ten finish.

I think we all know that our next 7 games are tricky. We've got the United backlash, City chasing Arsenal down, Arsenal trying to stay ahead, and probably Liverpool's recapture of form. If we were offered 7 points for them right now, I'd take it. That'd give us 31 from 27.

Our games in April are:

H - Leicester
A - Leeds
A - Southampton
H - Everton
A - Wolves
H - West Ham

That'll be our season right there. Less than 6 points from that and we are in big trouble. More than 12 and, given we play the promoted 3 in the last 3 games, there's every chance we break the 50 point barrier.

Everton's big issue is their final home games are tough - From April they've got Tottenham, Fulham, Newcastle, City, Bournemouth. If they want to turn it around, they have to do soon, or they have to do it away. They've got enough quality to do it with the right manager though. Bournemouth and Southampton I'm more worried for.

The relegation battle this season is going to be very tight. Everton in my opinion are in the thick of it and given they only just escaped last season (we helped their cause chucking away a 2 goal lead ) and have sold Richarlison i don't think we can assume they will escape just because they may be deemed a big club. Equally watching West Ham this season they look a team with very little pace and now their set piece goals have dried up i don't think they are going to pull clear either. Bournemouth look the most vulnerable team at the moment but who joins them? Possibly Southampton. The third place though is very much up for grabs - and yes we are in the battle for sure.
