Vital Saints Asks Who Goes Down?

QPR are sat forlornly at the foot of the table with 17 points. 7 points from safety they still look likely to drop down to the Championship, even after spending on players in January and changing manager.

Wigan sit above QPR on 21 points with a few games that they will be depending on against other strugglers as games where the needed points can be won.

Reading are a further 2 points above Wigan on 23 points and have been improving of late as they begin picking up valuable points, and ground, on their closest rivals.

One point above comes Aston Villa on 24 points, and they have some serious defensive issues. They have the worst defensive record to date in the league. Though again they are also showing signs of spirit as they try to stay afloat.

3 points above them comes Newcastle and Southampton. Two teams that seem to be on the up but are still perilously close to the drop zone, and needing to continue their improved form. This weeks meeting between the two could have a big bearing on future events.

Sometimes a team can be seen dropping like a stone as the season reaches it's climax and looking ahead I can see the possibility of something similar happening again.

Norwich, Sunderland, Fulham and West Ham are the teams next in line and it would be hard to pick one right now as a possible relegation candidate. Of those four I would suggest the away form could have a bearing which would point at Norwich and West Ham.

Right now I simply cannot see QPR escaping from the drop. Wigan also have to produce another tremendous run and I feel it is once to often for them. Who goes with them is perhaps the biggest question.

Aston Villa have had a terrible season with some shocks along the way. If they can stop leaking goals they have every chance of surviving for another season.

Reading have been showing a lot of fight lately and will battle it out to the end. They are my third choice but I will not be at all surprised if they escape.

My question is who do you feel will go down at the end of the season?

Long as it aint us don't care. QPR with Redknap has to go as well. Some team above us will drop lower as well.

Not Saints!! We are going to stay up and I think 3 out of bottom 4 will drop.
