Relegation?

Post by winston_the_cat » Sun Feb 27, 2011 12:10 am

Briefly it looked like the upheavel was actually a good thing. Now a different picture is emerging. I'm tipping we're going down. The (few) teams below us are improving and God knows what has happened to us. Too much to contemplate.

What do you think? And if it happens, is the Championship really all that bad? (apart from the lack of resources). And what would be the chances of bouncing straight back? I suspect it is a lot harder to do now than a few years back. The gap to the Premiership appears to have closed.

I think it's unlikely that the results from the last 4 games indicate the pattern for the remaining ten. I reckon we'll win a minimum of two more games and I'll predict that's all we'll need to stay clear of relegation. And despite all the knee-jerk negativity to our latest run of bad form, we're still only a point away from the top half of the table.
