I remember people writing them off because they only had 1 win for the season and then they won their next two.

I think they beat Everton at home.

Once Mee is back they'll be much better. (cue Jod popping in with a joke)
Yeh not writing them off but they definitely need to start scoring more and banking wins.
Evertons run home is pretty tough though.

They certainly know how to shithouse their way to safety.

I wouldn't put it past them.

I think Brentford and Leeds sneak another 1 or 2 each and are safe.

Comes down to Everton vs Watford/Burnely.

That Everton vs Burnley game is enormous. If Burnley lose, I think they are done.
I think we can get 4 points from our next 3 games and that should be enough.

Holy shit. The toffees may only have 1 game left where they could be expected to gets points. Brentford.

Everything else looks like an L.

Burnley have Watford and Norwich still to come. Win both of those and Everton are down IMO.

I think it could be Watford that send Everton down, they have some winnable games.

Leeds, Brentford, Burnley and Everton all at home.

If Everton go down do we think it's just a one year thing and they bounce back up or could we be looking at a Leeds situation?

So more like Sunderland.

And still no. They'll be like West Ham and Newcastle.
Sure, more like Sunderland.

And yeah I agree. I think they come straight back up.

If in fact they do go down.

Leeds looking a lot more stable now, probably only need 2 more wins to guarantee safety, but the decision to replace Bielsa, whilst heartbreaking, clearly was the right one.

Reckon Everton will narrowly survive too

Are Everton moving into their new stadium next season?

Wouldn't it be glorious if their first home game in their new stadium was in the Championship against a club like Milton Keynes or Rotherham United? :D

What a wonderful World it would be. :)

Getting sick of Southampton being a banana skin team.

Hope they go down next year and don't come back for a while

Just an annoying club (I almost would prefer Hull in the Premier League. Almost)

I may have been a little off, they aren't due to move in until 2024, hopefully if they are relegated this season they will still be in the Championship when it opens.:D

They have started building their little stadium on the dock, they broke ground about eight months ago.

Ah ok thought they were still waiting for approval, but regardless it's still a long way off like you say.
