    Big big goal for Wigan that. They never give up.

    Makes the relegation race interesting again.

    Sunderland should be worried especially with their freefall.

    Will be hilarious if somehow Newcastle end up being relegated.

    Well, makes the relegation battle more interesting. Don't like Wigan much can't see the point really, but would be hilarious if they could relegate a "big Club", or even West Ham.

    Stoke would be better if still very unlikely.

    Sunderland a real possibility though.

    Sunderland were ridiculously fortunate to get a point at home to ten-man Norwich today. Nasty little run of fixtures coming up for them too.

    In order of ****tiness of teams I want to go down, and likely. Figuring QPR and Reading are down, I'd go.

    Stoke, urgh
    Sunderland, terrible football, O'Neill, just awful, never forgiven them for 89 League Cup
    West Ham, purely on the BFS factor, owners not much better though
    Aston Villa, dull town, dull team
    Newcastle, mainly for there "best supporters in the World" sthick
    Wigan, meh
    Norwich, I forgive them knocking us out of the FA Cup in 90, because they play decent football, and have played in a League with us recently
    Southampton, because they play decent football, and have played in a League with us recently

    Copy and paste used for the last two

    More or less my list too. Would rather Wham and Villa went down before Sunderland though.

    Really wanted Villa to go down last year but actually kind of like their side this season.

    Stoke easily the side I most want to go down with Sunderland second, add nothing to the league.

    Yeah same, feel completely different about them now that McDire is gone. They're not painfully dull and reactionary anymore, they're a very experimental side that's full of young players and can't defend for ****. It's loads of fun to watch.

    Sunderland are this year's Birmingham. Fairly indifferent between Villa, So'ton and Wigan but I'd love Sunderland to go down.

    That's all well and good except that Mancini has nothing to do with who was brought in, he gives a list of who he wants and Marwood then tries to sign them. He wanted Robin Van Persie, Eden Hazard and Daniele De Rossi. He got Maicon, Scott Sinclair and Javi Garcia. I'm not sure any manager would be thrilled with that.

    The only player that he wanted and got was Nastasic, who after a little bit of a rough start has been very good IMO.

    Surely they'd have been on some sort of list though? Can't imagine Marwood just went '****, we've missed RvP, I know, I'll get Scott Sinclair, the next best thing.'

    Oh I'm sure they were on his list somewhere, and I reckon we would've gotten Maicon anyway just through Mancini's relationship with him and his desire to play 5 at the back early on in the season. I was just pointing out that whilst I'm sure he had some say in those players coming in, I don't think he can be held solely responsible for them when he doesn't deal with the transfers directly and quite obviously coveted superior players who the management missed out on.

    If he is to be sacked, it shouldn't have anything to do with the transfers over the last season. He wanted two of the top 10 players in the league and the management had a go but missed on both of them. He should be sacked only if there is a superior alternative ready to take over. We risk becoming Chelsea if managers are let go without a plan in place to replace.
