Leeds should just about stay up in the Champo. In the PL, Fulham are doomed. The other two places are between Palace, Norwich, West Ham and Cardiff. As for Hull going down - no chance.

For me, that run in will do for Norwich, I don't think they have enough about them to pull much further clear before they have those final four games to play. Fulham look far too lethargic and lightweight to survive and West Ham have been poor for some time and the last place will be between them and Palace. I hear a lot about Pulis never being relegated but that is only because he was relieved of his post when he almost took Bournemouth down, who were saved by the next manager.Unless Palace get another player or two in before Friday, their honeymoon period will end and they will just about be caught by the Hammers.

I fully expect Hull to drop.

As big as it is, the lack of real quality in Palace's squad will eventually tell. I like Rene, but Fulham are too easily beaten. That leaves one more spot, and I think that run-in might be the end for Norwich.

Big Sam's tactics worked in the previous decade, unfortunately that is where they should have been left. We all saw it coming and the smart one's amongst us took us at 10/1 to go down after the freak win at Spurs.

I really don't think Norwich will go down. I actually think the 3 to go will be Cardiff, Fulham and West Ham which would be a shame as I like West Ham.

Agree with everything except the assessment of Stoke fans. I thought they were integral in their home performances, and was especially impressed with them in the game against Liverpool.

I'm guessing Miller's interest in writing this article waned off towards the end

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win


s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
