Congrats Mike, as scampi says, a good watch for the neutral.

I see Grealish is mouthing off about City's second goal. Suck it up love, Villa were outclassed by a City side who didn't even have all their best players on the pitch.

Weekends football not the best for me, Spurs....even 5th is looking doubtful now. The Cherries did well to go ahead against Chelsea but just couldn't hold on for the 3 points. Results went against them too, as West Ham and Watford both had a win. At least there is no VAR in the Championship.....yet!

no worries Kid, I suspect most neutrals wanted the Villains to win. It was a really good game for a final and Clownio's save at the death was atypical of him, I was expecting penalties at that stage.

So who do we have to go down? I think Watford and West Ham will survive, so the current bottom 3 plus Brighton?

I think the horse punchers are safe so perm 3 of current bottom 6. If I had to take a punt Norwich, West H and Watford.

Keeping my fingers crossed for Brighton, one of their players pays the rental on one of our UK properties (not for himself). It's all about me me meeeeee.

Well we only have one in common, often like this year the interesting aspect is at the bottom, as a supporter horribly nerve racking, now I have not looked at the run in yet, I tend to look at current form and goal difference as my guide, when things are going against you at this time of year it can easily get away.

Just to throw my tuppence in... Norwich City, Aston Villa and Brighton.

The first two are definite fried chicken. Norwich have left themselves too much to do with a limited squad; Villa have horrendous fixtures and the leakiest defence in the PL bar Norwich. The last place will be tight between Brighton, Bournemouth and West Ham, but the Cherries still have threat from their attacking players, and I think Moysie will just about get the Hammers out of this. Brighton try to play nice football, but they're wide open too much and the goals are sporadic at best.
