I'd bank on Stoke going down over Bournemouth.
I'm changing my opinion about who is getting relegated as frequently as I change my pants.
Keep thinking Huddersfield will get dragged in then they get a win to sit in mid table.
Thought Palace were screwed at one point but now they look certs to stay up.
Keep thinking Southampton won't go down but they are living dangerously and don't have the firepower.
Keep thinking it's Bournemouth's time but then they'll pull off a win.
Keep thinking WBA but then I'm half expecting Pardew to get sacked and them to pull off a last minute rescue.
Keep thinking West Ham will be fine but then they go all Moysey and shoot themselves in the foot as soon as things look comfortable.
Keep thinking Newcastle but then I can see Benitez just working his thing.
Keep thinking Brighton but they keep surprising me.
Keep thinking Stoke but that squad should have enough to get out of it.
Swansea are doomed though.
I was hoping it would be Stoke, West Brom and West Ham, but I think it'll be promoted sides like Brighton and Huddersfield.
At this stage I'd go with Swansea, Brighton and Huddersfield.
I'm starting to come around to that way of thinking now. I thought Huddersfield had given such a good start that I could have seen Wagner been canny enough to just bag a few more wins to keep them mid table but it's looking like the xmas period has caught up with them. Not scoring anymore either. Brighton too.
Unfortunately most of the others have had/are having a new manager bounce. Shame as I want some of these clubs with no plan to go down.
Damn, why hasn't West ham dropped more points. I so want them to be on the verge, then go down last day on goal difference
Might as well move this to Spurs chat after yesterday. Absolutely FUMING.
After that win for Swansea anybody think they can get out of it? They've been much better defensively under Carvalhal and are now only 4 points behind Huddersfield. I'm also starting to think that all 3 promoted sides could go down, all in a spiral of bad form, all tiring and all with very weak squads.
Don't think they have enough goals in them personally unless Bony gets his shooting boots on.
I’m hoping beyond hope that with the injuries to Lanzini, Arnautovich, and Carroll may drag West Ham back in to the danger zone, unfortunately I still think there is at least three teams worse than them.
Can see all three of the promoted teams falling into trouble in the coming weeks. Swansea have given themselves a chance given how dead and buried they looked a few weeks back.
Glenn Murray's been arrested for tax evasion. That's not going to help Brighton.
2/3 of the season gone and 11 teams with a legitimate threat of going down. kinda crazy.
It's about time West Ham left us. Whether for the Championship or another place altogether, I really don't mind.
Werid season.... Frankly... anything which is rank 10th to 20th can be relegated. If Everton continues their decent form they should be safe.
Any team who can go on a good run with 2 or 3 wins in a row will find themselves in mid table.
Swansea and WBA might have some life in them... Newcastle's problems off the field might come back to haunt them.
Maybe things will be clearer come March.
Tight at the bottom
Predictions changes every week but if I were a betting man I think it could be Huddersfield, West Brom and Stoke, hoping that West Ham get dragged in
Seems like any team at the bottom makes a change and turns it around and climbs out of it so it's a hard one to call still, except for West Brom that is, they made a change and sank like a stone, they are doomed and I can't help but think that Alan Pardew must interview well.
Weirdest bottom half of the table in years....
It's so tight. Any team that goes on a run of 2 or 3 wins will get out of danger... Yet it could be the other teams that go on a similar run that will drag other teams in.
It's really a season in which any team can beat any team. With a bit of luck and some good tactics of course.
I think we will only see a clearer picture at the end of March. Much as I want West Ham to get the drop... I think Joao Mario will make the difference. He has the quality in the centre of the park. Something they really have been lacking. Plus they brought a youngster in who is eager to impress up front.... Still.... Hopefully they will screw up.
I've given up trying to predict it.
Bournemouth have picked the perfect time for a good run of form, 31 pts is probably 9 from guaranteed safety given that the bottom five all have less than one point per game.
All teams from Watford in 11th down can still drop IMO, and like Hughy I'm done trying to predict which three it'll be.
The one thing I will say is that if WBA don't get their act together sharpish they will surely be one of the three.
I don’t think you can write Everton out of it, they have been utterly pathetic over the last few weeks and their goal difference is the same as wba.
Three points separate nine clubs, I can definitely see a club going down on goal difference this season.
Separate names with a comma.
