We aren’t going anywhere near relegation with ASM in the side like.

With Wilson and ASM assuming they stay fit we won’t be involved in a relegation scrap

Didn't Burnley start off terribly last season ad well?
Would love to see them finally relegated, their football is terrible and seemingly just getting worse and worse.
They have brought no one in during the transfer window, and have let players go. Apparently they don’t have the money. Theirs owners actually fear for the future.
Unless they start beating teams like us, they are gone.

Easier ride this season for Bruce, given some much poorer sides and squads in the league imo.
Fulham, West Brom bye bye and anyone from Burnley, Sheff utd and Brighton.

SportsDirect Utd around 14th/13th/12th.
Glory days indeed.
'Us' = Stenhousemuir for the forseeable.

Brighton wont be anywhere near. I think Sheffield Utd will be fine too.

It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

I think Brighton will be okay, they’ve had a tough start and were unlucky against Chelsea and Man United.

I think West Brom, Fulham, Sheffield United and Burnley will make up the bottom 4. If Wilson get picks up a few injuries then we will be with them too.

Compared to our relegation rivals Burnley, WBA, Man Utd, Fulham, and Sheffield Utd, we have got off to a decent start.

They do but their performances don't necessarily translate into results (the same was true last season and they were in the relegation battle until the penultimate weekend I think?) They'll be down about there but will ultimately stay up.

Sheff United/Fulham after the break. Absolute must win for Sheff United as they have Liverpool, City and Chelsea after that game.

If WBA win tonight then we could be looking over our shoulders a bit the next month. Can’t see Brighton losing though and we’d already be looking 5 points between the bottom 4 and the rest of the league. I mean, we’ve only lost 2 all season and we’ve gifted 3 goal away wins to two bottom 6 teams.

After yesterday I think we'll just do what we did last season. Play s***, get everyone behind the ball and somehow grind out 38-45 points.

If you keep around a point a game it doesn't really matter what anyone else does.

The league is dreadful like, the bottom 5 clubs have played 26 games collectively and won 1. Standard is f***ing rank. Just need to be a little bit better than utter pigshit and you'll stay up.

Yeap, some of those in the bottom 5 will improve like Brighton.  I think we'll finish 17th.

As I said in the Project Rich c***s thread, there is so much dross in the league that reducing it to 18 teams isn’t the worst idea (unless it was motivated by greed and power)

Next two games feel key for West Brom. Brighton and Fulham. They have to win one of them imo.

Really being better means accepting how bad you are and how few points you need. Sometimes it's the teams that try to play too much that end up conceding too many.

Inspiring.

I think the league’s really strong to be fair apart from the 4 being cut adrift and us.

Yeah I don't know what you could really base saying the league is weaker than usual on. Perhaps West Brom and Fulham are worse than the average promoted team but that's about it.

Yeah. Judging by how the few results we've seen go so far I can see the title being won with between 80 and 90 points instead the daft totals we've seen since Leicester won it.
But...6 in a row. But...Calciopoli.

Agreed. It's ridiculously competitive and the weirdness of the wider circumstances is obviously adding to it.

The table looks 'weird' at the moment, with at least three outsiders in the top 6, and with Arsenal, Man City and Man Utd all in the bottom half. Of course, this isn't unusual for a season's opening weeks; and whilst I'm sure it'll 'sort itself out' to some extent (i.e. ManC will probs get into the top half like) - I wouldn't be remotely susprised to see the entire division littered with surprising finishes come May. It's not beyond the realms of possibility that the likes of Everton and Leeds sustain their form and both finish in the top 6, for instance.

And I've still absolutely no doubt we'll be a country mile away from the bottom three; most likely stinking up the fat no-mark section between 9th-14th.
