I was looking at the player injuries to certain prem clubs and to tell the honest truth i wonder if Leicester,middlesborough,bournemouth and swansea are the ones looking over their shoulders.
Sunderland,Hull and C,palace have respectively 26 players out through injury.
Despite that sunderland and hull are clocking up a few points with only big sam,s palace looking surefire down and outs.

Whereas Leicester, middlesborough,bournemouth & swansea have a total of 10 players out.
Swansea have picked up in recent weeks but the rest are on bad runs.

Almost the entire bottom half at this stage will be nervous it's sooo tight,

Been really impressed with hulls new manager also Swansea look much better now

Sunderland palace Leicester would be my guess at this stage but things change quickly

One point to make is with so many clubs so close to trouble it will make any remaining fixture really tough for everyone the entire bottom half will be fighting tooth & nail week in week out

Sunderland (Don't take enough points from rivals, haven't deserved a top flight place for years)

Leicester :champions:

Palace (one London 'cup final' less)


Edit: just looked at Leicester fixtures.... 100% going down :wave:

2 points between 15th and 20th is insane this far into the season.

I wouldn't write Leicester off, they're capable of putting a run together still. Don't forget what they did under Pearson winning 7 out of their last 9 matches to stay up.

I think Leicester, Sunderland, will drop, :niceone: and one from Hull, Palace Boro, Swansea.

Well Journo things arent looking so bad for your other team hull.
Looking at it solely from an aspect of teams depleted through injury this is my conclusion for what its worth. :rolleyes: obviously there are lots of other factors to add to the mix like having a bit of luck and ref decisions etc etc.

Despite having 8 players off with various injuries they (hull) are picking up points.
So are sunderland with 9 players out injured.
So logically you would expect both teams to do even better when they start getting some key players back.

Big sam,s palace are playing like a team with 8 players out and for me are nailed on for relegation.

Surprising other candidates for the drop (IMO) would be leicester with only 2 players out and playing rubbish.
Middlesborough with also only 2 players out not picking up points lately.
Bournemouth could be dragged into it with only 3 players out and a loss of form lately.
Swansea have virtually all their players to call upon and could yet escape the drop.
Without looking at any latest form tables i would say right now that its C.palace. Leicester & Middlesborough that are on their way down.
Having said that swansea have been in the relegation mix all season and will need a big effort to stay up. :cheers:

Clement and Makalele are organising Swansea. I had a soft spot for them under Rogers and Laudrup so would like to see them stay up and return to good football next year. Always good for 6 Spurs points.

Middlesbourough will hopefully draw their way to safety. 3rd Most likely to go down mind you.

Hull - like clement, another great manager choice. 3 at the back might keep them up.

Bournemouth - fullbacks, CM, wings upfront, manager, fans, too much quality and heart to go down.


There is 24 points for grabs next season. We often drop 2 against Sun, Palace, Leicester for some reason, so hoping these are the ones to sod off. Leicester would make history two years in a row if they go down. We can only pray.
