Relegation candidates.....

Yes it's only mid february, but there is a certain look about the bottom of the table.
For me it's a five way tie as to who drops

16 Middlesbrough 25 4 10 11 19 27 -8 22
17 Leicester City 25 5 6 14 24 43 -19 21
18 Hull City 25 5 5 15 22 49 -27 20
19 Crystal Palace 25 5 4 16 32 46 -14 19
20 Sunderland 25 5 4 16 24 46 -22 19

BORO...Least likely to go Palace Stoke Sunderland & Burnley next 4 &
Oxford in the FA Cup
Karanka 52% win ratio will see them ok

LEICESTER - currently an absolute cert to go...utterly without belief & commited the cardinal sin of not strengthening after an unbelievable title season
Will be totally annialated in the CL this month & this won't help their league cause

HULL - worst goal deficit currently, - got Burnley Leicester Swansea Everton & West Ham up next, struggled with injuries all season
Marco Silva (The new Jose) may well rally them round

PALACE - just shocking this term Allardyce brought in to stem the flow, the relegation saviour has lost his touch since the England debacle, their front men are not turning up at all
Any side that can lose to Sunderland at home 0-4 cannot be taken seriously

SUNDERLAND - Any side that beats Palace by 4 away & loses the next week at home by 4 again cannot be taken seriously, - Moyes since getting slaughtered as United manager has not been the same solid boss he was at Everton
Defoe at 35 odd has basically single handedly got them the points they do have

my three to go
Leicester
Sunderland
Palace

feel free to comment/disagree as you see fit

Boro, Sunderland and Swansea for me

Would love to see fat Sam take Palace down but they look to have rallied at the right time.

Still dislike palace tho

posted 6 days, 6 hours ago

Well Sunderland and Boro are as good as gone, guess the real question is will it be Swansea or Hull who take the next place? Heart says Swansea, head says Hull

posted 6 days, 6 hours ago



Sorry, wrong way round. Would prefer Swansea to stay up, think it will be Hull though
