But i do think Bolton have done really well in the last few seasons to stay up, this year they might be out of luck.

Isn't this only their second season back in the Champ?

So what evidence do you have that we are good enough to stay up?


I will make a judgement after 20+ games not bloody 12.

Fair comment ,25% of the season is probably not enough to form an opinion..................

Ipswich, Millwall and ....................Wigan (not in poll).

I fear Rotherham's home record will keep them up.

er, not sure what record will keep us up, but I'm a Loyalroyal.

They're not in the options because they won't go down and also to prevent daft posting like you have insisted upon doing anyway.

Yes and my comment is completely wrong...... How perception completely clouds the mind.

Rotherham - really struggling for open play goals, and unable to effectively play the attacking style of football that got them promoted.
Ipswich - massively overachieved last season despite playing awful football, finished mid table pretty much solely due to McCarthy and his set piece focus, his reward was the sack. Hurst is solid but they are much worse than their finish last season suggests.
Us - we played better in the first few games and were unlucky (/making stupid mistakes), then played worse but got some results (+ 1 false dawn good win vs Hull), and now are playing badly and getting what we deserve. Can see the atmosphere getting very toxic if we don't win the home games against Millwall and Ipswich, and a negative spiral thereafter. Ultimately we look so weak at generating chances - we essentially rely on Swift who doesn't look fully fit or in form, and I think it's unlikely Bod will be able to continue his hot start, unless he is suddenly a different player to the rest of his career. Barrow was so key last season and scored more than stats suggest he should have - his regression back to the mean this season is also damaging.

Anytime x

But for the sake of constructivity, thinking Reading are one of the favourites for relegation doesn’t constitute being “a bad fan”, it’s relatively realistic. Also 25% represents a fairly good sample size for estimated trends and forecasts.

Last season after 10 games the bottom 7 included Brentford (and us) after 46 games swap out Brentford for Hull. So after 10 games 6 out of 7 were still there at season end. Eventually the trap door will open for us if we stay mired at this level. Luck may desert us this year. And to be clear - we are in a relegation struggle almost from day 1 of the season, none of this we're a talented squad too good to go down crap.

Yep. Ten games is the point the table definitely has meaning. If at least two of the current bottom six don't go down come the end of the season it'll be a surprise.

Barrow has really regressed under Clement (so has Kelly).

Barrow is struggling to get in the team. It’s been huge, because we’re talking about an offensive player, who was our best player(?), player of the season, and who could command a big fee if we sold.

If Clement is as good as some say, he needs to get Barrow back on track, and even improve him over what he was, for several reasons.
