Wigan, Fulham and Birmingham

I hope Wolves get out for Eggy's sake, and I think West Ham will pick up after Xmas

I agree with Scruff, i hope for eggys sake that Wolves stay up. But the fact of the matter is that theyre fuckin awful this season, and i honestly cannot see them surviving. Its the 3 W's for me. Wigan, Wolves and West Ham.

On a side note, Ian Holloway deserves to be knighted for the job he's doing at Blackpool, considering he's had as limited a resource pool that any Premiership team has ever had. He's fucking hilarious too.

I really like blackpool, they'd have to manage something special to go down already Very Happy i think west ham are picking up a bit, they got a draw this weekend. Don't like avram grant though

lol everyone wants Wolves to stay up for me. Smile

To be fair when we lost to Blackpool I thought that was it but if we win our next game and other results go in our favour we will be 16th which I'll take. last year we were in pretty much the same position till the end of January that we are now so there is hope and we deserved points from Arsenal and Chelsea (more shots on target at Stamford Bridge than any other team for 2 season)

I'm sticking by my prediciton Blackpool would have a strong start and then poor second similar to Hull and Burnley in previous season - but whether it will be bad enough for them to go down remains to be seen (if it happens at all). Saying that it will be great for them to stay up but if it comes between Wolves and Blackpoool I know who I will be supporting although I feel like I am the minority

Wigan and West Ham I think will go down. West Ham need to sack Grant - his reputation is a lot better than it should be but his past shows he is a godd manager in knockout football; Chelsea in the Champions League final, Pompey in the FA Cup Final and now with West Ham in the Carling Cup final but his teams never are brilliant in the league - am I right in thinking he will be the first manager to ever finish bottom of the Premier League 2 seasons in a row, granted Portsmouth had a bad start with Paul Hart and that wasn't his fault but it didn't get much better one Grant had come in

I can't see Fulham going down, I know they were always contenders before Hodgson but can the team there really get relegated - I know you can't be too good to go down - look at West Hams 02/03 team including Cole, Carrick, Defoe and Di Canio among others.

Don't really know what to think of Bham - I know it could be a case of Second Season syndrome such as Reading a few seasons back but without paying massive attention to them I don't think their season has been that bad

Blackburn will be sucked into a relegation battle without Sam Allardyce in my opinion, although he didn't play the prettiest style of football he always would keep the team up.

No one has mentioned West Brom - Di Matteo has done a fantastic job and, credit where it's due, so have the players - just a question, like Blackpool, as to if they keep it up for the whole season.

At the beginning of the season I predicted Stoke would finish 17th but I think that was a bit short sighted, they got rid of one of the main players in the backroom unrest in James Beattie and replaced him with the estute signing of Kenwyne Jones so they will be safe

Didn't mean to write this much... I'll shut up before you all get bored Smile

Fulham have been incredibly dull this season, match of the day keep calling them 'the draw kings'. I don't support a premier league team so who i want to go down is based on entertainment value (or lack of it Laughing ). Theres always lots of goals when blackpool play, and as a result i like having them in the league Smile whereas i always dread seeing teams like fulham on MOTD
