    The Pozzos are not **** owners. They've created something at Watford.

    Far too early to call it, but I'd be amazed if Bournemouth finished bottom.

    Don't get me wrong, they face an uphill task to stay up without Wilson, Mings and Elphick, but they are a decent and tidy side capable of getting points. Howe's a decent manager and they won't be the whipping boys.

    I full expect Villa and Sunderland to join them.
    They already are. They get destroyed by any decent team.

    I'm surprised more people haven't said Norwich, they lack goals and they sold their top goalscorer of last season - Bradley Johnson. They conceded a lot too, even in the Championship. There haven't been any big changes to the defence that conceded 62 goals to seasons ago.

    Aside from losses to City and Tottenham, they've lost extremely tight matches.

    I wouldn't say their recent losses have been tight. Added to that they've already played Watford, Stoke, Sunderland, Norwich, Villa and only got 4 points from those fixtures. Their best defender - Mings is out for the season too.

    Norwich are ****. Look at their fixtures too, they'll be bottom at Christmas

    They didn't back Alex Neil in the summer, so I'm not sure they'll even improve from there

    Redmond will be picked up if they go down.

    I think Bournemouth will manage to just nick it and stay up.

    Going to stick with the current bottom 3 of Aston Villa, Sunderland and Newcastle

    Newcastle are a much better side than the table suggests I think. I imagine tomorrow they'll get a positive result at Bournemouth, and that should signify both club's futures.

    We'll know more about the barcodes in a month or so. They had a horrendous start to the season fixture wise

    Yeah gonna say I think it's absolutely crucial for both teams. Personally I'm not so sure Newcastle will win it tomorrow, certainly I don't think they'll be keeping a clean sheet.

    Feel bad for Bournemouth they've had such an injury crisis, would certainly be out of the near relegation zone with all their ideal choices.

    Big, big game. Wijnaldum is a great bit of business by Newcastle, I have to admit. He could pull them out of the scrap.

    For me I think it just depends on what happens early on. I think if Newcastle score early it'll seal the game for them and they'll end up scoring a few more, but if Bournemouth did manage to score first and in the first half...meh last season Newcastle always seemed to stumble quite a bit once they were down, like the moral to turn it around wasn't there, and although I haven't seen as many games, their standing suggests they must still have problems.

    They thrived against Norwich, though, after they'd been pegged back twice at home. I think Bournemouth will need to rely heavily on Murray if they are to get anything whatsoever from the game.

    You have to say though although Bournemouth are an attacking side, if Newcastle are letting a team like this absolutely dominate them, they're pretty much doomed themselves in the long run, they're incredibly fortunate to be leading.
