      That depends on whether the Albion can score more than 26 goals.

      Obviously as it stands, not a snowballs chance.

      Assuming PW can nail the biggest decision he and his team have to make this Summer, I'd like to think the Albion won't be that shite.

      We may go down next year.

      But by god, we won't stink the PL out like Boro did.

      I'm not sure even their own fans will be able to recall anything that happened this season in a few years' time.

      Can we find 12 wins next season?
      Can see Hughton being far more methodical next season and targeting certain games with certain objectives,if we can target 12 wins all will be fine.key to get any transfer business done early and the squad settled.

      I think the biggest improvement in this season over last is that the Albion players have seemed to mastered the dark arts to get what they want. Last season I sat and watched teams like Boro, Burnley and Wednesday at times bully our lads especially the younger ones who could seem to pay them too much respect. 12 months later we have the experience to back up this team bonding and can mix it with some of the best. A few experienced heads coming in and I think we could be a surprise package in the top flight.

      I had a £10 bet with a United fan today that said we wouldn't get a point in our first 4 games..

      I think we have to believe that we will do better but as @Bodian points out, we'll need some more Sidwell's (who was magnificent at Villa)

      I doubt the current squad would... so it will depend who we sign in the next few months.

      Yes,we seemed a bit more physical this season,still a little concerned we may have coughed and farted on the big occasion (both toon games and Villa yesterday)
      Have to target the 3 teams we hope to finish above next season,think we are more than capable of finishing above
      Palace,Bournemouth,hull/Swansea,whoever comes up via play offs.
