Really?

Yeah, but I've never really believed in the relegationometer. :lol: It's a yes or no question for me, will we go down or won't we. I have absolutely no doubt at all that we'll stay up so I'm therefore a zero. I think I argue this every season which is thoroughly tedious for everyone I'm sure.

Anyway, the squad has a strong mentality, lots of talent and - assuming Dubravka makes it back in good time - no aching deficiencies where the player occupying a position literally isn't capable of playing in this division. We actually had that last season at CF, yet still survived comfortably. And manager-wise, Bruce is Pardew, not McClaren. We'll be absolutely fine.

Might change my vote if ASM, Dubravka and Wilson all break their legs.
Fair enough.
Just feel like we were lucky to an absolutely ridiculous extent last season to stay up, especially as comfortable as it was. We should have been relegated quite comfortably without that luck, and I just don't think the signings are quite good enough to offset that.

So, are we condemning Fulham on the back of that performance (and thus occupying one of the drop spots many seem to think we are destined for)?

Think we'll finish 15th or 16th.

Yep. Could see us finishing anywhere between 12th-16th. Don't think we'll get relegated, but we'll probably flirt with it at times in the season.

Looking at some of the squads in the bottom 10, I think we could finish higher than I thought. Still a couple of weak areas squadwise but as long as Bruce doesn’t f*** it up completely there should be enough talent to finish 11-13th. There’s the ‘big 6’, Wolves, Leicester & Everton. Could finish near the top of the rest. Again, just annoying we couldn’t have swayed Rafa or another good manager instead of Bruce because top 10 would have been a realistic target rather than hoping to sneak in if Bruce doesn’t do as bad as we think.

Just checked the poll - seems I’m the only person who voted “1”.

Think I’ve been too negative...

I voted zero, I think the bookies have got this badly wrong with us still 3-1 to be relegated. The three signings guaranteed survival for me and if Bruce learns to manage fitness/injury levels better with a bigger squad of eligible players I honestly think mid-table is on the cards.
11th or10th a real possibility*.

Why not?

Off field problems with cash flow, Dyce unhappy, poor squad to begin with etc.

He’ll do incredibly well to keep them up this year.

I feel like it'll be a repeat of last season. s*** football, no plan, but we'll scrape together just about enough positive results to stay up.
It's basically what gives us the upper hand even in times of crisis. "Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG? BET ALL THESE COPPERS ARE MAGS, AND THE MEDIA! THE REF'S A f***ing MAG! AM I A MAG?! Wait, blacked out for a second there. Ah, f***, we've lost again."

Early days, but safe to say that WBA, Fulham, Newcastle and Burnley (edit: and West Ham) will be fighting for survival for a long time this season, if not until the end of it.

Other likely contenders will be Villa, Southampton and an outsider that I think will struggle (at least compared to last season) is Sheffield United.

Logic says we could go down. Based on stats we were lucky last year, and new signings probably don’t alter those stats significantly. So if Bruce can’t figure out a way to get more out of the team, we are in danger.

Going from 6 to 8.
Had some early optimism after West Ham, but Brighton really hammered home that we still have Steve Bruce at the helm and can only hope others are worse than we are this season. We won't nick results against top teams this season, top ten teams have strengthened considerably and probably 14 of 19 teams will tear us to shreds. In amongst the s*** we'll be!
