    Default The Premiership: Who is going down?

    Alright lads the Premiership last weekend of the season is coming and as you know no one has been relegated yet and only one can stay up out of West Brom, Crystal Palace, Norwich and Southampton.

    So who do you think is going to stay in the Premiership?

    If we look at the fixtures:


    Southampton vs Man Utd

    Fulham vs Norwich

    West Brom vs Portsmouth

    Charlton vs Palace


    All Norwich have to do is win at Fulham and they are in the driving seat but i think Brom definetly has the easiest of the games.

    Southampton should go down because they have avoided the drop so many times and i really want them to go, and Crouch is banned which will not make life easy for them and Man U are gonna be gunnin after the Blues beat them quite easily last night.

    For a midlands team to stay up would be great as West Brom is just up the road from me but i have feeling Palace could do it.

    What do you boys think?

    There is a bottom end of the Premiership??

    Its a tough call, Heart wants Palace to stay up, Would be also be a shame to see saints go but i think Norwich will win at Fulham. Fulham will just be relieved to have stayed up, and Norwich will fight tooth and nail and always look like scoring no matter who they play. The question is can they keep them out?

    The Baggies are not good enough for the Premiership so i think they will go.

    Losing Crouch is a massive Blow for Saints but over the years they have proved somewhat of a bogey team to Utd so you never know. Also Utd have nothing to play for as they cant finish anyware but 3rd.

    Ian Dowie is one of the best young British managers (Other than Moyes) and it would be a shame for him to have a relegation blot his CV so early in his career. Also Andrew (dont call me andy) Johnson is a good striker that needs to play top level football to continue his development.

    In conclusion? Wins for Norwich and Palace, Close defeat for the Baggies and a Draw for the Saints meaning Norwich Survive till next season (Now wont that give Ipswich a Motivation for the playoffs???)

    As a neutral I'd like the Baggies to stay up....if only to break the 'curse' of whoever is at the bottom of the table at Christmas gets relegated.

    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    Charlton aren't doing much now, so Palace must be in with a shout of winning there. I'd like to see them stay up myself. I just can't see the baggies as a serious premiership side myself, they should get back into division one where they belong (oops, "the Championship")

    Yeah well done Wigan. We (the Gills) beat you in the Div 2 play off final in 2000 and look how our fates have diverged since then....that's the difference between having a tightwad chairman and Mr Moneybags I guess. Still fair play to them, but it will be bloody hard work to stay up IMHO.

    Wigan are one of the few Championship Clubs with thr resources to be able to be competitive in the premiership. I think they will stay up. Roberts and Ellington are a formidable partnership. Roberts is a nutter, he played for an Hour in Wigans last game with a broken Leg!!!!

    I want Norwich to stay up as my uncle was one of Nigel Worthington's friends...wonder if I could get tickets


    Also Andrew (dont call me andy) Johnson is a good striker that needs to play top level football to continue his development.

    He has an uncanny ability to get penalties though, almost half his goals are penalties and most he won himself.

    Hopefully Saints will stay up, but I don't know if they will. I hope Baggies go down.

    Well done baggies

    The first team to survive after being bottom at Christmas


    Sad about some games Norwich didn't deserve to be hammered, southampton just couldn't save themselves and Chrstal palace conceded with 8 minutes to go (their 13th penalty couldn't save them).
