Unless there’s improvement I don’t see us staying up, like. To have two seasons in a row where the results outdo performances would be very fortunate. We need better full-backs, more mobility in midfield and a goalscorer. Probably someone to push Almiron & ASM too because the drop in talent from those two to Atsu is shocking.

PL clubs are in a position of strength this summer due to the TV money. Other clubs will have to sell at greatly deflated prices this summer and there are deals to be had.

Therefore I think the bottom half of the table will not be dictated by net spend, it will be dictated by who makes the smartest deals, who have the best coaches, and which teams have the best determination.

I think we will go down.

The mood around the place is at an all time low, we aren’t going to invest in the firepower we need and we have Bruce picking the team.

Would be great if we did go down tbh.

Feel like a £100 bet on us to go down will be a nice lift next year.

Are we all lumping on Fulham to go straight back down?

Brucie’s team is staying up.

We might go down, but the odds are we won't. As dreadful as we are to watch we are still a level above WBA, Fulham and (probably) Leeds. We are a better team than Villa, especially defensively and probably on a par with Brighton who could go either way next year. Throw in West Ham and Palace (who I think will have a very bad year next year) and there's just too many teams who are equally as bad or worse than us in the mix.

We can defend which goes a long way in this league unfortunately.

You've clearly not watched Leeds play. They're way better than us.

Bear in mind we barely scraped past a weakened WBA in the cup. That's our level.

Only Norwich conceded more than us away, a whole season under Bruce, with Rafa's defensive know how finally expelled from the team.

I've no doubt we'll have the worst defensive record, we'll be pigs to the slaughter under Lord Bacon.

Why are you just focusing on away games? Looking at that we had the 9th best home defensive record in the league. Saying you'll have 'no doubt' we will have the worst defensive record is just wrong.

Oh come on  :lol: I've seen them play a number of times against Championship teams and Championship defences. It's incomparable. They might do well, they might not. As a reminder, Norwich finished 5 points clear of Sheffield United in their promotion seasons.

A fair point. I think with teams coming up from Championship, it can be tricky to predict how they'll do.

Not a chance we will finish as high as we did this season.

We will water down the squad again this window and take the mackem loan approach that was another nail in their coffin.

I'd swap 'ASM fret' for 'set-piece fret'.
