Which of the four suspects will survive the drop form the premiership this season?
Way too close to call this one, never known a year like it where every team can still stay up. Just look as the baggies result at Old Trafford. anything can happen. But seeing as it's a poll i will go for Norwich as it is in there hands.
How do you make a poll anyway on here?
Out of the 4 i hope Southampton survive although i don't think they shall
i've voted for southampton, despite really wanting them gone.
i think norwich will only manage a draw at fulham, putting them on 34 points. west brom will probably beat portsmouth, putting them on 34 too, as portsmouth are terrible away from home, and crystal palace will easily beat charlton as they're just terrible everywhere, putting them on 35 points. that leaves southampton having to beat man utd to stay up, and i think they will beat them, i think man utd are absolutely terrible, they have no heart and no fight, and southampton, led by Harry, will know just how to get the result. Of course if i'm right with all this, Southampton have to beat man utd as many or more goals than palace beat charlton.
i voted for crystal palace!
Can't see Southampton getting anything at all from this game.
1: Crouch is out
2: Southampton have to win so they will push up, leaving room for utd to exploit
3: Uniteds last match before FA final (players should be trying to impress)
and it's about time they went down They are like Coventry where, no drive, never wanting to improve, always happy with mid table.
If they do go down they could also go the way Coventry went (wilderness)
Plus it would be nice if one of the newly promoted clubs actually stayed up, and i for one can't think of a better team than Norwich (they actually play football)
But after what iv'e said just watch them do the great escape yet again
I think with the Pope dying that its time the Saints chipped off for a while too....
And you know what happened the last time a pope died!!!
Liverpool won the european cup.
Football throws up strange little coincidence like this all the time. Thats mad. I reckon they are on a winner then
Even stranger the last time Prince Charles Married, Liverpool won the cup.
Southampton. Their home record is Ok(ish) and Harrys been in these scrapes and survived before. Neither Norwich nor Palace are liable to get away wins, and the baggies, well, who knows! One week ok, next week rubbish!
Norwich haven't won away all season so maybe due 1 last match? Fate!!!
If Norwich win next Saturday then the others are toast!
Not voted because I don't have a clue. I could convince myself that any one of them could do it. I certainly wouldn't like to put money on any of them.
I changed my mind. I saw that no-one had voted for West Brom and I felt sorry for them. All it takes is that they beat Portsmouth at home and none of the others wins. That's not too far-fetched for me. And they have a slightly better GD than Norwich.
I'm sure that Charlton won't show any favours to their fellow London club next Sunday as the money is all made from TV rights nowadays and not gate money.
I can remember 25-30 years ago Crystal Palace had a reputation of never having beaten a London club in the old First Division. They were perilously near the relegation area and playing Chelsea at Selhurst Park needing all three points. I was one of the crowd watching Chelsea do everything in their power not to score with Peter Osgood facing an open goal and managing to trip over an ant and their defenders trying their hardest to concede penalties, as the derby games between the two clubs were worth so much money.
I would imagine that all four teams will be a bag of nerves with so much riding on the outcome that the one that stays up will probably be the team that handles the nerves best of all.
Naturally I hope that it will be Palace but I fear that Norwich have the easiest task.
I would have thought that Chris Coleman might want to do Palace a favour by beating Norwich. Portsmouth fans will all be cheering for West Brom as they will want Southampton to go down. All in all it should be an interesting day for the Premiership..... for a change
Why is the Crystal Palace font different from the other 3?
Because that is who you voted for! My choice is in italics too.
Should be interesting listening on Saturday, I believe all the relevant games kick off at 15:00
Having seen who Palace have, I might amend my tip from the scummers to them. Charlton couldn't beat 11 paperbags at the moment!
Mind you it all rests on the Arsenal v Everton game for Southampton. If Arsenal get even a point, Fergie will face down the FA (again) and play a scratch side at StMarys if they don't need the points.
I think it will be quite boring listening on Sataurday when you consider they all play on Sunday
