Is this the first season in our current spell up top where we don't have the 'Relegation Predictor Thread'?

I'm a bit concerned the lack of investment over the last 3 seasons will catch up with us next year though, we need to have a good Summer with bringing in some good players in key positions.

No Wilf and we would not have been promoted and would almost certainly have been relegated in the last few years (again credit to the owners for bringing him back). I don’t think we are smart enough as a club to defy gravity for another 5 years unless we discover another world class talent or two in the academy.

There may be a lot of truth in your Wilf assertion, but conversely I also think we've been a little unlucky not to have unearthed a top goalscorer in the time we've been up. Had we happened across a Wright, AJ, Armstrong, Ings, Vardy type; we could've reached some quite memorable heights. Unfortunately, the money Pardew spent on Benteke has hamstrung us in that department.

Is wilf going anywhere, what is the maximum anyone would pay? £20 million? He is staying with palace, like it or not...

This summer is huge for this football club, we desperately need to rid ourselves of the players who are vastly overpaid in Benteke and Sakho. Also unfortunately Dann and Cahill are both well past there best . Desperate for some pace and strength in midfield.

You can add Luka and Andros to that list.

You are right that we have been unfortunate with Benteke and Sakho. They should both still be in their primes. If they had stayed fit and continued to perform like they did in the Allardyce season then we would have likely seen some top half finishes. Although in Sakhos case it didn’t take mystic Meg to predict injuries.

I still think most of our success revolves around Wilf though. We really need this investment in the academy to be our cornerstone. When I look at mid table clubs like Wolves, Southampton and Leeds I think they have a clearer plan to how they want to play. They also seem to have more structure around recruitment and forward planning.

Quite a lot of media outlets are saying Leeds have secured premier league football for next season after beating palace last night how’s that ?

Nope - second year - last year we had a

Comfortable Mid-Table Calculator(with a hint of Relegation Avoidance)

The words in brackets were only added because there were some people who insisted against all the evidence that we were at risk. A bit like the thread starter here. One bad result and we are never going to win again and the bottom three are going to start a winning streak to rival Man City. There was even briefly a

European Football Points Calculator - not started by me I would add.

This season we are safe - next season - who knows - we are due a relegation because (like it or not) that is the type of club we are - we are never going to stay in the prem for ever.

Because the media has to put down something and "2 teams in no danger of relegation or making Europe play each other" isn't a very exciting heading?

The usual target is 40 points to stay up 38 would almost certainly do it in most seasons. We currently have 29 and would need another 9 from 15 which looks pretty straightforward.

However our form was so bad before Wolves that it was hard to see where the next point was coming from. Don't forget how many games we lost at the end of last season. Wilf has no return date and without him we don't seem to have any plan of attack. It may still be fortunate the bottom 3 are so bad.

That's what Roy does. Usually 1.2 points per game at Palace, Fulham and West Brom.
