    Been plenty of threads about top 6 bottom 3 but thought I would do one about who people want to go up and down. Of course keep them realistic. I think everyone can safely presume Cardiff are up so who do people want as the other two and who do they want to go down??

    I want:

    2. Watford
    Play-offs: Leicester

    22. Bolton
    23. Wolves
    24. Sheff Wed

    Three above are not likely but all three are still in dangerous positions.

    If Albion do not go up this season 8/1, I want a few southern clubs to remain in the Championship as it is full of northern clubs.

    I do not want any more Lancashire clubs in the Premier. They have got enough already. Cardiff are 1/20 to go up, so there will be no need to pay the toll to get into Wales.

    Forest is about as far north as I like to go.

    Ourselves in second.
    Leicester via the play-offs. I say this mostly because I don't want to see Holloway in the Premier League again - would be boring to know one relegation spot! (Not because of Palace's squad, but mostly Holloway's predictable gung-ho tactics) and Watford...bleh. And I'm curious to see how Pearson finally handles the Premier League.

    Going down? If we go up, I don't mind one bit. Although Wolves going down would be funny for Quirk reasons...

    If we stay down here, then Bolton (Awful away day), Wolves (Quirk) and Bristol City (just because I think they'll benefit from it, especially with O'Driscoll in charge)

    Blackpool were just one point from safety in the Premier League under Holloway so I have no idea what you're talking about. He did an amazing job with the resources he had.

    Seems like it's just fashionable to hate Holloway at the moment :rolleyes

    I am not fussed either way.

    I don't want to see Cardiff go up though.

    Last time out, yes.

    Now that every manager knows how to handle it, I'm not sure if Holloway would last long in the Premier League. I admire the effort to outscore the other team in every match but I wouldn't want to build something for years based on that...

    I think there's more to Holloway's teams than just outscoring the opposition. Although that is generally the idea of football.

    While that's true, you simply cannot ignore the defending aspect of the game in the Premier League. You'll go down quite easily without considering it...

    Want Boro, ourselves, and Watford to go up. Obviously not happening.

    Don't particularly care who goes down, but rather Posh or Barnsley didn't.

    Holloway bashing is quite popular at the moment, but I reckon every club in this division would welcome him at least once to be there manager! Can't wait till Dave sees this, although I rate him as a good poster he might not think this a great idea.

    I'm sure he doesn't plan to.

    We have to get there first though...

    Great. Steve Bruce got Birmingham relegated, but you don't see me banging on about that.

    I don't want us to go down obviously but whoever goes down will deserve their fate!....whoever goes up automatically the same......the play offs don't always work that way but that's the rules.
