  1. Default Looks like it's time for the "relegation price 2019" thread.

    For the opening gambit it may surprise the "that's it, Championship here we come" brigade to know we are around 11/2 to go down on Betfair as I type.

    We were 17/1 before the Palace game.

    Mini-league time.

    Can't see Fulham or Huddersfield staying: we're vying with 6 other clubs to the final spot in the bottom 3. Ok..may 5 (think Palace have enough in them).

    Squeaky bum time.

    put money on us going down last year, narrowly avoided collecting. Won't be betting this year as I don't think we will go down. We are a better side than last year. Two poor results yes, but we were a combined total of about 3 minutes away from getting 4 points instead of 1. Yeah yeah, thats what relegation teams do blah blah. No, they don't. We are staying up.

    Into 5/1 this morning following the Burnley result.

    We have Huddersfield as our last game which is a huge bonus for us I think.

    Not saying Huddersifled will be involved as they'll be gone by then, but having an already relegated team at home on the last day is pretty perfect....

    Cardiff meanwhile are at Old Trafford.

    Agree & what scares me is our next fixtures vs theirs.

    We have to hope Brighton can get dragged further down.

    Oh, we can cock that up as well, no danger.
    Not sure we won't have gone ourselves by then anyway.

    Given Saints form at St Mary's I'd probably prefer to be away at an already relegated Huddersfield. Either that or play the game on the Common or something.

    Ladbrokes have Cardiff & Burnley at shorter odds & Newcastle as the same. Brighton look tempting at 8-1. Burnley seems a bit strange as they’re the form team, 2-0 at OT with 5 mins left & are unbeaten in the league this year.

    Not even that bothered anymore. With An owner like Gao it’s just a matter of when we go down not if. Wether it is this year or next doesn’t really matter.

    We (BHA) are at a crossroads. Our form is poor, but performances haven't been. Equally, we took 9 points from 3 successive games earlier in the season, and didn't deserve that either (we could have had no complaints if it had been 3). Yesterday's game against Burnley, nothing really went our way and the same goes for Watford at home where we thrashed them 0-0.

    So this crossroads - our next 5 league games are Leicester, HUDDS, Palace, CARDIFF, SOUTHAMPTON. By the time we play you we could be out of sight given your own fixture list, but if we haven't pulled away from you then we are in real trouble. At the moment, odds of 9/1 on BHA to go down look about right.

    Cardiff are more streetwise and resilient than us; what you need in a scrap. Not looking good unless we can stop shipping goals. I think Huddersfield on the last day isn't necessarily great for a team like ours. we need to be out of the picture by then. Too many Sunderland similarities

    No, Cardiff are sh*te and if we hadn’t gifted them 6 points on a plate they’d be well adrift with the bottom 2. A mediocre striker would have put 2 past them on Saturday but we didn’t have one and the goals we conceded were just as poor.

    Still so so angry about Saturday and how we ****ed up so badly. We have royally screwed up in the transfer windows previously gone, so much so that this transfer window meant we were impotent.
    We must have the weakest strike force in the whole premiership. 2 strikers that would bankrupt the NHS, 1 that should be reported to trading standards making a living as a striker and 2 that are just not ready for the premiership ready.
    How the hell are we supposed to win games?? The rest of the side is good enough to stay up IF we has a bloody striker.....we had no one on Saturday!

    Agree - they were absolutely rubbish on Saturday, but still outwitted us. Matched us up and stopped the wide men (Valery / Bertrand) really affecting the game, and we obviously had no threat in the middle third of the pitch apart from Redmond.

    Even if we nick 2 draws which should have happened from those two games things would be looking a lot more rosey. We'd be sat on 26 points and them on 21, with the bottom three pretty much cut adrift. But this always seems to happen with one of the teams who looked dead certs for relegation, their form picks up and they stay up, and another drops like a stone and ends up being well amongst it, (could well be Brighton this year).

    There is a long way to go, but we could do with a draw or two in the next 4 with us beating Fulham. Get 4/5 points from the next 4 games and I think it's not looking too bad.

    This. Which makes shipping out Gabbi without a replacement ****ing suicidal.

    Just think, Jack Stephens directly contributed to 3 dropped points in the last kick of two consecutive games.
    3 points against 2 direct rivals

    Ralph should have played Yoshi in the second. Mistake. Unless there’s something weird going on with him again.

    This. We needed a striker and an attacking midfielder/winger minimum during the window. I don’t think the defence is that bad, it’s just when you offer so little threat going forward you’re going to end up under pressure and any mistake is costly.

    It’s scary to think how toothless we would be if Redmond gets injured.

    Might Obafemi be back for the next game? Could he play a big part in our run in?

    Out to 6/1 on the back of last night's pleasing results.

    I'm not expecting us to get anything against Arsenal but the pleasing thing about last night is Cardiff / Fulham neither gain points or pull away from us respectively.

    What it does it really puts into focus the importance (& pressure) on the Fulham game.

    (Annoying how they get 2 days rest on us).
