    Nath doing his chances of securing my BOTM vote no good today with his pro-Millwall and pro-breezeblock filth ramblings.

    What are you going to do next, punch my sister in the face? Honestly....

    I don't like the clubs, but I like their football, and angry fun times.

    If it was my sister that would be a guaranteed vote winner



    To go down

    Wigan - Like one of their townsfolk on an 18-30 holiday, they are a little nobody who's spent too long in the sun and now look like a lobster, they've drunk too much and are now starting to make a tit of themselves. Now its time to quietly **** off back to the non-entity that is their normal lives.....



    Wolves - Dear me, if theres one thing more monotonous and boring that Mick McCarthy's whinging voice, its his teams football


    Blackburn - Much as I hate the baby-eater that is Fat Sam, it would be so funny to watch Blackburn go down, because
    A) They've been shocking
    B) Their chairmen make Mike Ashley seem rational
    C) They've been shocking
    D) I've never forgiven them for 1995
    E) They've been shocking
    F) All of the above
    G) LOL

    Wolves - A team of ****s that play like ****s, managed by a ****
    Birmingham - A team of ****s that play like ****s, managed by a ****

    Not too bothered out of Blackburn and Wigan, on the basis that Blackburn manage to get more than 40 people to watch one of their games I'll go for them and back Wigan for the drop.

    Seriously, Blackburn & Wigan can clear off as they're awful. Would like Blackpool to stay up; don't mind out of Wolves/West Ham. Birmingham are safe.

    Wolves and Birmingham because they play dire football, Blackburn because they deserve it for their board's lolbad managerial decisions, and there's nothing left to like about West Ham.

    I've actually softened on Birmingham since they beat Arsenal in the League Cup so I'll go for the other three.
    It seems the Indian owners have really ****ed up at Blackburn Rovers. Oh dear. They should stick to buying expensive IPL franchises.

    How so? The Indian owners were not playing on Monday night. And where are the Mike Ashley comparisons coming from? Blackburn were relegation material under Big Sam, itís not like they just sacked a guy after he won a local derby 5-1 and they have sold the naming rights to Ewood Park to Chicken Meat Processing Limited.

    If they go down, the people who should be held primarily responsible are the players.

    I think the golden rule for any foreign owner of an EPL club is not to make too many changes too soon, and leave the day-to-day running of the club to a competent manager. Now, I dislike Allardyce's football as much as the next guy but his replacement didn't even have any managerial experience IIRC.

    He didnít but he was an Allardyce appointment who was familiar with the side and wasnít coming in from the cold. As a stop gap solution it made sense though a long-term decision regarding Kean should have been made after the season finished.

    Allardyce was punted at least partially because the football played by his teams is perceived to be unattractive. Presumably Kean went in with a brief to start playing a more attractive brand of football, but you can't just take a team built around players like Roberts, Benjani, Samba and Nelsen and turn them into Barcelona. The team was set up to play a certain way, and having owners that want to actively interfere with that in the short term was always going to be a recipe for disaster.

    If we manage to somehow survive this year we may, MAY be ok I guess. But we're still being coached by someone with next to no experience, so I think it's hardly a given.

    In fairness, 3 points off 6th was probably still in a relegation battle at that point, its been crazily close all year.


    But point stands, Fat Sam had a system, it was working to an extent, the change hasn't been for the better. If it wasnt for Robinson having a good season it could be a lot worse for Blackburn.

    TT Boy mentions Kean being a stop gap solution.A stop gap is to plug a hole for a short while whilst the next guy comes in.... Its been over half a season. That suggests no long term strategy before they sacked Sam, which begs why sack him when he's not exactly been disastrous.

    Blackpool have been great for the Premier League so I want them to stay up

    For some reason I can't explain like Brumbers I have a soft spot for the Irons - must have something to do with the fact that there was a time when they were the only club who tried to play the beautiful game, as opposed to the functional one

    And I also like the idea of Wigan in the top flight - only reason is that when I were a nipper Wigan Athletic were strictly non-league, so their presence should keep on inspiring the likes of Crawley - ambition should never be stifled

    So that I am afraid means bye bye Blackburn, Wolves and Brumingham
