newcastle and cardiff dead set to go down, with it being a scrap between huddersfield and fulham. atm i chose fulham bc there back 4 are amateurish. Ream and Chambers must be the 2 worse defenders in the division.
Tough to call so early, but the present bottom four looks about right so far.
Cardiff and Huddersfield look the most limited to me, and so it will continue to be a struggle. However they do have a bit of fight in them.
Newcastle aren't so bad to be bottom of the league and can get out of it, but just seem caught in a miserable saga and might have a season like Villa a couple of years back where everyone just gave up really early on.
Fulham have talent in attack, but cant continue to be so naïve and open defensively otherwise they will be right down there.
I think Fulham have enough there to sort themselves out, scoring goals isn't going to be their issue. Whether they have to sack Jovanovic and bring in someone who can sort their defence out or spend a bit in January to fix it I think they should survive.
If you can't score goals then you will always struggle - Huddersfield and Newcastle aren't lacking in effort but they are severely lacking in goals and quality in the final third. Huddersfield relied on their strong start and play-off momentum to keep them going last season but I think without it they are pretty much doomed - 4 goals in 9 games is a recipe for relegation and Newcastle aren't much better. Therefore I think those two are doomed. Cardiff had a bit of a surprise result yesterday but I still don't think they will stay up.
