    How many times in the past have we seen 'new' signings salvage a clubs destiny for a season...?
    Horsefield at WBA 2 seasons ago?
    Vinnie Jones and Glyn Hodges at ours early 90's?
    John Stead at Blackburn 2/3 seasons ago?
    Kevin Phillips at Sunderland?

    Vincenzo Montella looks like he might drag Fulham out of the mire this year... and personally I think Steve Kabba could do the same down at Vicarage Road.
    As a Blade, I'm sad to see him go.... ok he's a lazy arse who doesn't tackle back, but put the ball infront of him and he's a greyhound.
    Watford look doomed, but until it's mathematically impossible to stay up there's always a chance.

    Forget what's happening at the top of The Premiership... the relegation battle will be far more interesting in the run in.

    Sheffield United
    West Ham United
    Wigan Athletic
    Watford
    Charlton Athletic
    Middlesbrough ... are all contenders for the drop.
    Manchester City and Newcastle United could still get dragged in....

    Which 3 of the 8 will go?

    Watford, Charlton and Wigan they already sound like championship teams.

    you can discount the Boro....we're safe as houses....once we can learn to stop leaking 2 and 3 goals against lower league teams that is anyway....but i'd go with Wiag,Watford and Charlton for the drop

    I'd say Watford, Charlton and Sheffield to go down. I'd love to see the Hammers gone, but I think they'll survive.

    Can't wait to see Fulham claim another 3 points against Sheffield on Tuesday night! That'll put us back in the top ten.

    I would love to say you could count Man City out, but having followed the team for years, I never discount anything..

    We have an amazing ability to make you feel secure and then lose 10 games on the trot to snatch relegation from the jaws of survival :'(

    Honestly though, I think we're good enough to stay out of it this year (please, please, please, please.........)

    And cup glory too

    ha ha ha. I was wondering why you didn't pounce on that one at the time.

    Yeah, fair enough - we played rubbish (like we did against Bolton yesterday). Although at least against Bolton we started and finished well, just the middle 70 minutes we stuggled with.

    Good to see the Hammers lose at home and Harewood miss a penalty. Couldn't have happened to a better team!
