I hope it puts to bed once and for all, anyone who wants Sturridge.

Or Pardew?

I thought he'd have them flying, certainly in the short term. I'm not saying it wouldn't have worked out for him here, we'll never know.

tend to agree think stoke will just crawl away from the drop

hopefully wins against them and Southampton can seriously hurt them

I would like Stoke and Southampton to go, purely because they have better players that could be potentially pinched...I could imagine Sullivan eyeing up Xherdan Shari as the summer's "Marquee Signing"

I was looking at the table last night, I honestly believe it is still any 3 from 9th place down.

WBA, they are actually playing alright, they just need one result and I can see them picking up and making a proper fight of it. They do have crap run in though!

Cannot remember at this stage of the season such a tight relegation fight (with so many involved) for many many a year. Usually by now, it's about 3 from 5/6 clubs!

West Brom look like they're destined for relegation, they've not yet let their heads drop but they've very little luck and their finishing last night was abysmal. They've little confidence in front of goal and a shaky defense which along with them already being 5 points adrift doesn't look good. Stoke (please) and Southampton will probably join them.

Perhaps on destined Harry, I have seen them a few times recently (highlights) and they are putting a shift in and doing alright (bar results), they do need a bit of luck, and as we know all too well, when down there the luck tends to only be bad.....

I quite like the baggies, I would prefer them to stay up than at last 6 others I could name.

West Brom are doing what we did under Grant. Some good cup performances have masked their lack of league wins. Some might say they think that's worth doing, just roll with it, but I wouldn't want to look back in anger when you're relegated. Enough with the Oasis !

Southampton deserve to go down for continually selling off their best players.

Newcastle beat Manure at the weekend - who expected that? Anything can happen, and some squads
are more vulnerable to injuries than others (are you listening, Dildos?)

Whatever "war chest" Moyes gets in the summer (assuming he is still the manager) it won't be nearly enough to overhaul an ageing squad. Déjà f****** vu.

The relegation battle is the highlight of the season for me any permutation from 10th down a couple of bad results and any one is back in trouble.I remember when we went down with 42 points theres going to be a few twists in this yet.I hope we tie up safety pretty quick and beat the sides down there with us and not rely on our usual cameos against the top eight. :crest:

Dennis Wise on SSN talking about the relegation battle, his f**king voice, I've got to mute him!

West Brom can go, they never really bring any excitement to the league, one season, where Lukaku carried them, aside.

This is quite interesting (sorry if done before) -- 6% chance of relegation for us according to the numbers.
