One Way Or Another

November 25th, 2008 · Posted by Skuds in Life · 1 Comment · Life

What a scary season it is in the Premier league this year.  We are a third of the way through and for most ofthe teams it could go one way or another.  This is not one of those years wherea gap has opened up at thebottom – not since Harry moved to Spurs anyway – so everybody outside the top four or five knows they are potentially only a shortbad run away from the relegation zone.

Taking the Hammers as an example.  We are equal on points with Man City at number 11 in the table – so about where we were all last year – but only 3points away from the relegation zone in one direction and 3 points from seventh place in the other direction.  There are only nine points between the drop zone and the UEFA cup at the moment.

Are we going to end up with a last day where there are half a dozen teams theoretically capable of going down?   A last fortnight where there are ten or more teams not mathematically safe?  I’m sure I would look forward to the prospect a bit more if I supported Chelsea or Liverpool…
