Poor old Southampton – and my god look at Stoke!

Now that we’re safe I can look at the Championship table in a relatively calm state. No longer am I peering at it from behind the sofa, or feeling the need to turn the TV over every time it appears on the screen.

I’ve been playing with the BBC Predictor for a number of weeks now, but for the most part I was really just concentrating on us and everything else was dressing, but when I look at it now two things stick out:

1. Southampton are in big, big trouble. You wouldn’t put an awful lot on them getting anything at the Hawthorns tomorrow night, and then next weekend they host Sheffield United – who could still reach the play-offs. On top of that their goal difference is woeful, and Youssef Safri says the Saints won’t go down. They’re in it up to their eye balls.

2. Stoke. Just look at them all the way up there – no, not the ball from another Rory Delap throw, I mean actual Stoke City. The team. They’re one point away from the Premier League! What sort of madness is this??

And who do they face on the last day? Leicester at home. Hold on tight Southampton, maybe you’ve got a chance after all…

  1. What do you mean ‘Madness”?

    Stoke just missed out on the playoffs last year and have spent good money this year to get where they are.

    Stoke also have a long record of playing in the top divsision. After 23 years its about time they were back in the big time.

    Please don’t tell me that they won’t be able to compete in the Premier League. Anybody knows that without major spending, ANY team going up from the championship is going to be in trouble. It’s not rocket science!

  2. A long week for us Stoke fans and I really hope we go out for a win and not a draw as that will see Leicester win. Nerves of steel are needed by Tony Pulis & the players and I need a lie down 🙂
