    The Albion were I think 15/8 joint third favourites (with Burnley) for the drop all summer, even after signing Maupay and Mooy. Now:

    Yes I know some teams havenít played yet, but itís good to see markets already reflecting that we might not be doomed after all.

      Scummers at 6-1 look good for the drop for me......would be nice too! Matched hopefully by the South London Comedy Collective and Arsetown Vanilla joining them..Nice!

      15-8 to 3s is a substantial increase. Can you bet on us staying up? Any longer than 9-2 on, and it wouldn't be worth it IMO.

      Good price for an insurance bet right now IMO. As you said, anything longer wouldn't be worth it.

      Watford are in big trouble. Awful performance topped with an aging squad. Worth some money on them

      Ben Foster 35
      Gomes 38
      Holebas 35
      Cathcart 30
      Janmaat 30
      Mariappa 32
      PrŲdl 32

      That's just in defence

      Cleverly 30
      Deeney 31
      Capoue 31

      You can lay them at just under 7-2 on Betfair right now.

      The markets are slowly beginning to recognise that we’re not crap.

      Though everyone under the sun seems to be backing Brighton and Hove Albion (15th) for the drop, I’m a little more optimistic.

      ‘Be careful what you wish for’ seems to be the common trope, but Albion’s record last year was utterly abhorrent: two wins in 2019, including a run of six league matches without a single goal, surviving with a paltry 36 points, is simply not good enough. And the data showed it in uncompromising terms, something owner Tony Bloom is big on.

      Chris Hughton is a club legend, but this was the right time for a change, and Graham Potter comes in with a brand new, exciting style of football. Potter did brilliantly with an asset-stripped Swansea side last year, and he’s ready to prove a few naysayers wrong.

      Albion’s transfer business has been solid: winger Leandro Trossard joins with a big reputation from Genk, Adam Webster (arguably the best centre-back in the Championship last year) will line-up with Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy in a back three, while the prolific Neal Maupay will spearhead the attack.
