Relegation concerns

I’m probably the only one (maybe) but based on last nights performance and a number of others not to mention squad age I do worry that eventually the big R will catch up with us , I think it’s built in with supporting palace but I always find myself wishing defeat on any team below us even from earlier on in the season .....worried ? You bet I am constantly

The three teams at the bottom picked up 1 point between them at the weekend, we are 14 points clear, which means we would not have to win and Fulham win 5 to over take us, I mean I'm a negative nelly at times but there's no way we are going down

I think it's a legit worry if we lose Wilf but whilst he stays with us in his prime I think he is good enough to single handedly keep us up. When he does go, we really need to spend the money we get for him wisely. But it's not as bad as last night suggests because we should have funds to bring in a quality replacement whereas last night we were playing PVA and Andros in his position.

Eventually, probably. Teams our size usually don't get more than a decade in the top flight. Concern for this season, not really, but next season we've either got to change a lot of players (and presumably the manager) or we're going to face an even bigger struggle to perform.

Realistically we're one transfer away from relegation (Zaha).

Not this season but I agree with Monty, unless our squad issues (in particular aged and injury prone players, reliance on Wilf) then relegation will catch up with us in the next season or two.

I think we will be fine this season the three teams in the relegation zone look all but gone think it will be a low total of points this season to stay up.
We have a big summer ahead where we need to recruit smartly and need to think hard about if we get a new Manager in and clear a lot of the dead wood out if we do not act quickly and early we are in for a very tough season.

We are 33/1 to go down this year with 7 teams on shorter odds (3 very short).

I nearly just typed relax but decided not to (this IS palace after all).

I can't bring myself to believe we'll get relegated this season. All logic suggests the bottom three are too far behind. But we're certainly relegation material and, if Fulham got their act together and launched a miracle escape, we're by far the likeliest to get caught.

Worse than that is how horrendous we've become to watch. Put simply, every game seems like 90 minutes of watching the opposition play football while we plod around waiting for one of our "stars" to produce a moment of magic totally at odds with the rest of our boring, leaden play.

I'd like to think that having fans in the ground would add some much-needed energy and urgency. But to be totally honest, this team is probably beyond that now. Very much has the feel of a dead man walking.

So sad and frustrating given our bright-looking upward trajectory in the early 2010s. It feels like the only way is down from here.

Lose the next four which is totally possible with this bunch of uninterested and mostly past it lot, and we are bang in the crap

It will take top 7 form for one of the bottom three to stay up.

We ain’t going down, simple as.

Best points I can forecast for Fulham is about 34,so we would need to be a whole new level of toilet between now and the end of the season to go down and if we do go down from here, frankly it will be fully deserved.

I've been concerned for 8 years, miracle we've hung around this long. A complete rebuild in the summer is needed - we've never been very good at doing that.

I don’t want to belittle the owners achievements. We have experienced a very successful period over the last 10 years and they have made a number of excellent decisions including bringing in some good fire fighting managers to keep us in the division.

However, let’s be honest this period has largely been built around our fortune to have the best player Palace have ever had come through the youth system. 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.

We will be fine this season. None of the bottom 3 will get to 30 points, if they do it will be only 31/32 max so it means we need to win one more game.

Next season though, if Wilf forces through the move he so desperately wants and Roy is in charge of the rebuild I will be seriously worried.

If we can't beat at least one of Brighton, Burnley, Fulham, WBA in the next 6 then we deserve to go down.

Do we need another “aging squad, aging manager, players out of contract, lack of investment, life after Wilf” thread ??

It's entirely plausible that we don't get a single point for as long as Wilf is out. Could be looking a lot less safe by the time he returns.
