As an outside bet for relegation, come on Preston and beat Sheffield Wednesday.

Wigan have won.  Could stay up even if they get the points deduction.

Does anybody know the team with the highest points to get relegated from the championship? Definitely looks like it could be broken this year

Was it Peterborough with 56?

Would still be 5 points from safety, with only 12 to play for.

But they've got 3 very winnable fixtures against relegation rivals, so it could happen.

They could easily get 9 points from next 3 games.  Play Barnsley, Hull then Charlton.

Bristol City held on to beat Hull.  Good result for us 

Makes me little bit sad we diddnt either get a draw or beat hull, giving us an extra point and taking 2 off Hull as the table stands would land them in massive trouble.

We're still ahead of them.  Just need to make sure teams below us don't pick up more points than we do. Some of them play each other, unfortunately, so we need to somehow make sure we pick up more points.  A win and a draw might just be enough as long as losses don't dent our goal difference too much.  Think we probably need to somehow get two wins, though.

Playing those three teams is probably good new for us. The more points Wigan get, the more it keeps the others in the mire. The probably points deduction will mean  Wigan can’t relax as they could otherwise maybe do. Best result might be if they beat Hull and Charlton and draw against Barnsley. That would help keep those three teams down and only leave Wigan potentially one point more that we currently have.

dont forget Wednesday aren’t necessarily safe. League supposed to rule on their ground sale this week and if they do, any points deduction would leave them in trouble, especially as they are in poor form. A loss against Preston tonight would be a good result.

Dont like idea of relying on points deductions to keep us up and hope it doesn’t come to that. I would take it though over a relegation.

sheffield wednesday went from 1-0 up to losing 2-1. They are in serious trouble if they get a points deduction

Just looked at Dirty Leeds remaining fixtures......now torn between wanting them to win at least 3 games...or just willing them to do their Devon Loch routine (one for the oldies)....very conflicted

    • Stokes signings are typical Stoke signings that you would expect them to make and very short term. They are an awful team and i was hoping they would go down.   One thing with Warnock is he will really look into our targets and not sign them for the sake of it. He knows what we need and i do trust him.  I remember Aitor saying if you make a signing he has to make the team better or improve the squad so its vital we sign players like that. It's just very interesting with so little money and so many free transfers around. We're definitely into a new era now.     
    • Arsenal fans don't seem to mind. 🙃 Come to think of it, there's more than a few PL grounds that often lack atmosphere.
    • Mikel was ok for us, he had a couple of decent games that was about it.   
    • Stoke doing very well to get players through the door this summer. 4 decent signings all done quickly. I don’t believe that we’re not trying our absolute best to get signings done but it’s starting to become a worry when our rivals are managing what we can’t. 
    • Probably because there are no transfers to discuss. Not even any rumours it seems. I'm surprised there's been no more on Pears - either on signing extension or leaving.  I'm think the efforts at the moment are on left back, centre back, defensive midfield and a striker.  Our squad looks very thin with training starting on Monday. I bet the club thought they would have more in by now. It's a crazy window.
