The battle for first place in the EPL is one of the best in years, but the battle for relegation will be something too.

Not counting Derby, who are in a class by themselves, there's about eight teams within 6 points of the 18th place, which in my opinion put them in the thick of the "race" for the remaining two relegation spots. Among them, Fulham, Bolton, Newcastle and Middlesborough.

Who will get relegated? My bet is on Fulham and Birmingham!

i cant remember the last time so many teams were so close to relegation... its funny.

im quite shocked to see bolton there to be honest.. and i didnt want to say it, BUT, if newcastle end up relegated, do you guys expect a lot of their players to leave??????

whats the problem with newcastle? players? manager?

Unrealistic expectations, I guess; and lack of continuity. They overspend on two or three mercenaries every year, and expect those two or three players to make a contender out of an average team. And then they put too much pressure on the coach and the team. which leads to nervousness, bad team spirit, and bad decisions; this in turn digs the team's grave even more. And then they fire the manager, and bring a new one, and the cycle begins again.

What they need is a three- or five-year plan, not an overnight savior. And owners and fans have to accept that it will take a while for the team to really compete.

I'd laugh so hard if Newcastle went down. I have nothing against them, but honestly...that'd be just like 'wow'. I'd like a 'wow' to happen Smile

Hair loss should be frequent among fans of teams in relegation battle this year...

Adebayor - Its all in the hair

Arsenal ace Emmanuel Adebayor has recently cut his braids and many
have jokingly speculated it has caused the player to lose his
goal-scoring touch, a claim he vehemently denies...



never underestimate the power a full head of hair gives a man.

unless it looks like pubic hair "jeremy clarkson"
