I appreciate it's still early on.
But looking at the teams currently below us, I can't see them being down there later on.
The league looks strong this year.
Who do you fancy to go down?

One things for certain. From what I've seen of it so far, the only chance we have of leaving this division this season is via its southern exit.

I've only watched us on telly so far.  We looked good vs Luton. Well I enjoyed the game.
Judging by comments since it sounds like we will struggle.

But did we? Putting things into perspective, we were up against a side expected to struggle with, apparently, the lowest budget in the Division who still more than matched us. And with a bit more luck would've had a penalty themselves, kept out Assombalonga's fluke, not forgetting Randolph's breathtaking late save.

I never expect much from the first game of season.
It's a lottery to some extent.
It's not really until Xmas when we'll have an idea of who's who and still then there's teams who climb in final few month's.

If we finish midtable it will be a good season. We're shit.

This is one of the worst teams I've witnessed in recent times. I was upbeat after Luton but since then it's been dreadful and the worst of what Pulis and Jawanka conjured. My fear is that it is not about players under performing like some knobs are convinced is the case, it is because the players are simply substandard. Millwall should have won yesterday and not because they had the better chances they played with more purpose and guile. Apart from the keeper, Ayala and Fry we have relegation battle written all over us.

I think once we get the right combination we'll be fine this would be my team:

                        Randolph

Coulson     Fry                 Ayala           Dijksteel (assuming he's anygood)

         Howson       Wing           Mcnair

Fletch               Balonga           Johnson

If he plays that team consistently and we get the energy and shape right we'll be fine

Could do with some options in all position though

Don't think 433 suits the players we have.442 or 451 would  be better if think.I would like to see him change the shape rather than just the personell.

He claims he wants an attacking high pressing Ajax team and mentality but you don't get that from ponderous pedestrian players. He needs to revisit that blue print vision. You match the team and structure to fit with ability. For that reason we are in trouble as I really cannot see an effective formation with this squad of players.

It can't be a happy dressing room.

If we still had players like Graeme Souness and Juninho we might be better too.
