Bookies Say Saints Wont Have Another Relegation Battle
Tuesday, 12th Jun 2018 08:00
It was a bad season for Saints but the bookies don't think that Saints will be relegated next year according to the early odds for next season.
As you would expect the Big Six are far ahead of the rest when it comes to avoiding relegation with anywhere between 5000/1 and 250/1 being offered if you fancy one of them to go down and the after that Everton on 33/1 are the only team not in the rest of the pack, then it is Leicester at 14/1 to go down according to the bookies.
Next up is Saints who at 7/1 to be relegated are effectively the 12th least likely team to be in the bottom three at the end of the season, West Ham arent too far away from us and as you hit 5/1 you start to hit sides like Wolves, Newcastle, Palace and Bournemouth with the biggest surprise being Burnley who at 4/1 are tipped to struggl with a small squad being unable to cope with the addition of Europa League games.
The bookies see it as a straight fight between five sides, Fulham and Cardiff join Huddersfield as the three the bookies think will go down, with Brighton and Watford just behind them.
The bookmakers don't get too much wrong and it seems that they think we have had a blip and we have the quality to come back stronger in the coming season.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
