      No team that has failed to score in their 1st three games have ever been relegated from the PL

      We are only 3 games in and have a decent squad with players than can make the difference between survival and relegation

      We have played two of our harder games this season already, whereas other teams we are competing with have had (on paper) far easier matches to start their campaign, and despite that, we are of the mark and are out of the bottom 3

      There was some stat about Burnley not winning their first game for about 9 or 11 games I think.

      Season is still early and we have some good creative players and a decent defence. All is not lost by a long way.

      All is not lost but we have managed to make life much more difficult than it should be. The head in the sand denial on here is nearly as bad as the daft Bloom must go threads.

      Sorry, probably posted this on the wrong thread.

      Jong-un Kim hasn't wiped out an entire planet yet.

      I have a nice comfy seat at the Amex

      We are still in the Premier League.
      Weather forecast for tonight: dark.

      The record of relegated teams the past few years would suggest the bottom of the Premier League is a lower standard than the top of the Championship. So we should still have a chance.

      We seem to be consumed by the SCORING of goals. Not conceding is just as vital. Generally relegated teams concede well over 60 goals. A couple of years ago Man Utd finished 5th, and only out-scored Sunderland (17th) by one goal.

      From what I've seen to date we are well organised and pretty decent defensively. If we can play to our strengths we CAN survive.

      We will get shredded playing the negative way and scoring goals is a huge ingredient and far more important than conceding.
      UP THE ALBION!!!!!

      We've played one home game against one of the best teams in the league. We've taken a point away from home against one of our rivals.

      Our survival will be concentrated on home games against bottom 10 sides and picking up points off of them away from home.

      Let's have another look at end of October.
