    Toon Tang true but Tata steel is perfect example of why the elites want out, because the EU inhibits their ability the shunt the yokels around like pawns. They blocked EU tariif that would have save the Welsh plant.

    Mbemba was awful today as well and Taylor is just…Taylor.

    Players who I think will defo stay:
    Dummett
    Lascelles
    Darlow
    Elliot
    Armstrong
    Colback

    On the fence:
    Townsend (feel like a PL club might come in for him)
    Shelvey (same with Townsend, they both might have the motivation to stay and fight)
    Mbemba (wouldn’t be surprised if a champions league/decent European club like Monaco came in for him)
    Mitrovic (might also have the courage to stay and fight but he might show enough in the last few games to be a decent striker and could get an offer from a CL club)

    The rest will all leave and hope they do cos they don’t deserve to wear the shirt

    All this talk of janmaat wanting to leave for a better club, I don’t think he’s shown enough that he deserves to but wouldn’t be bothered if we let him go. Getting frustrated with Gini as he’s dissapparead the last few games (always disappears in away games)

    So if we leave the EU jobs will be lost ?

    We’re still in the EU so try telling that to the steel guys on Teesside and in Wales…..there’s an elephant in the room..and it’s Chinese and it’s crapping all over the carpet

    No steel and we can’t build ships for our own Navy either – is Ashley working in Government ?

    so 4 home games left but 2 are against man city and spurs
    and 1 away game which is winable against villa
    so 7 – 10 points is all i can see
    so not a chance unfortunately

    Sawbuck what you’ve wrote is exactly right, if we leave eu it basically gives the 1% an open door to tighten our belts further so to speak without having to run new legislations and acts by Europe first. Something which has hindered them since day one.

    Anyways, we will get battered for talking politics on here much longer haha

    The best we can hope for
    Southampton (a) D
    Swansea (h) W
    Man C (h) D
    Liverpool (a) L
    Palace (h) W
    Villa (a) W
    Spurs (h) L
    We really need Spurs to be out the title race so maybe we can get another point.
    11 points – 36 points

    means Norwhich just have to get 5 points to be above us. They might struggle.
    Palace (a) L
    Sunderland (h) D
    Arsenal & Man U LL
    Watford (h) W
    Everton (a) L
    4 points

    Something to little controversial here, but maybe Jonas and Anita didn’t do us any favours against West ham. Maybe those saying last year that dropping to the championship would be good for us were right after all? I believe it would have been highly likely we would have banjoed SM mid way as we pottered around the middle of the league, then got a decent promotion specialist Manager to assemble a team of hard knocks to come straight back up. Then Ashley would have two relegation under his belt and shaped up or shipped out. Just a thought.

    jamestoon aye but it just shows how poor our players are
    the ammount of times today we didn’t just hold on to the ball and pass it about was criminal and the reason for that is no movement and very thick footballing players

    where can this twist come, first and foremost we need palace and sunderland to do a shocker and beat norwich next week and the week after.

    The you need ourselves to do shockers.
    we’ve lot 8 away games including watford, westbrom, norwich and everton “who’s got the worse home form in the premier league”

    So how sure can you be of us getting any wins against

    Southampton (A)-A team who’s only lost once (against newcastle) since getting promotion

    Liverpool (A)

    Villa (A)- A fixture we don’t get until end of season

    So now we look at the home games we’ll probably need at least 3 wins.

    Swansea (H)

    City (H)- with a defence like ours how can anyone believe we’ll win, recent seasons we’ve constantly leaked 3 or more goals in fixtures against city and the defence is a it’s worst state yet

    Palace (H)

    spurs (H)- given how big a win could be for spurs this is a ery unlikely win. Theirs more chance o spurs and leicester city going down to last game than ourselves and norwich.

    A Mitrovic/Armstrong partnership could send us back up, but Carr and whoever else is involved at selecting and negotiating for players needs to be kicked out. Manager is a mystery – I think Hull City might just fail to be promoted and we’ll get Steve Bruce, least he knows how to organise a defence.

    We need to be on the lookout for personnel similar to Nolan and Barton who also had a great, committed group of soldiers like Jonas, Lovenkrands, Carroll. Are there any players of that ilk out there to be got?

    We definitely won’t waltz it like last time, that’s for sure.

    Before any signings I can see:

    _______________Krul_______________
    Mbabu___Mbemba___Lascelles___Dummet
    Aarons___???????____Colback___Ameobi
    _________Mitrovic___Armstrong

    Sissoko, Janmaat, Perez and Gini will be the first to leave.

    Townsend and Shelvey having only just come don’t have the rapport to stay, Nolan was a different breed to them, just can’t see 2 young hungry fringe England internationals sticking around.

    Colo, Cisse and Tiote will finally depart, the part-timers that they are should’ve been long gone and it’s those types that don’t want to be here, yet for whatever reason stick around like a bad smell, which is a big contributor to the problems.

    Haidara should be thrown on the scrapheap as should Saylor – his contract renewal will be a big indicator of where we’re heading, just like Jonas been booted out was the signal for what lay ahead last summer.

    Obertan could stay, but I imagine a PL team or a foreign team will think he could be of use given his assets.

    Riviere, Anita and SDJ could be difficult to move on for various reasons.

    Saivet, who knows?

    Schteve and Mike Willo will meet up for a pint, share stories and shit themselves laughing,

    Team if we go down (not including new signings)
    Darlow/ Mbabu Mbemba Colo Dummet/ Shelvey Saivet/ Perez Armstrong Townsend/ Mitrovic
    However that is a young side and I dont think Benitez will play many of the youths.

    If we clear out Sissoko, Colo, Taylor, Colback, Tiote, Cisse, Gouffran, Obertan, Townsend, Riviere then it will be worth it. Unfortunately the new manager will probably think Riviere etc might be able to cope with the championship. I very much doubt that is the case.

    We’re looking through a glass darkly. We don’t know if Charmless and Carr will still be there next season. If they are, it’ll be the appointment of another desperate failure as ‘Head Coach’.
    Although we can be pretty sure that Sissoko will be snapped up by PSG, or similar!

    But could Charmless and Carr have attracted a decent promotion specialist? Don’t they tend to favour desperate failures who’ll work under any terms?

    We can all post whatever team we like or predict in the championship. It won’t matter.

    It’s all about getting a right manager in who can motivate the lot to get back straight up.

    Our scouting team immediately now have to source for players capable to play in the championship. The best is recruiting players from other championship clubs who are doing well.
