Luton Town – The Great Relegation Debate Continues To Enthrall All

Image for Luton Town – The Great Relegation Debate Continues To Enthrall All

It is the big question that everyone would like to know the answer to!

Who will be the third club to drop through the relegation trap door?

With the games left to play diminishing, I am sure that there will be a lot more twists and turns.

For the purpose of this article, I have already condemned Sheffield United and Burnley to a quick return to the EFL Championship, I cannot see either amassing enough points to beat the drop, although it is fair to say both clubs could play a part in deciding who the third team will be.

My view is that it will be one of either Luton Town, Nottingham Forest or Everton who will, come next August, be playing in the second tier of English football.

As I compose this article, Luton and Forest have FIVE games left with Everton (yet to play this weekend so far) having SIX.

Looking at the fixtures the Hatters have left to play, we play three London teams, we face a tricky trip to Wolverhampton and we face our relegation rivals Everton at Kenilworth Road.

• Brentford (h)
• Wolverhampton Wanderers (a)
• Everton (h)
• West Ham (a)
• Fulham (h)

I reckon we will accumulate 8 points from those games, leaving us with 33 points on the board.

But how will Everton fare?

The Toffees have SIX games left, the first of which is against Chelsea this evening, can they pull off a shock at Stamford Bridge?

• Chelsea (a)
• Nottingham Forest (h)
• Liverpool (h)
• Brentford (h)
• Luton Town (a)
• Sheffield United (h)
• Arsenal (a)

They also, in those final SIX games face Liverpool at Goodison Park and Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, while also having an intriguing visit from relegation rivals Nottingham Forest.

With 27 points already on the board can they accumulate enough to escape relegation?

As for Nottingham Forest, they also have FIVE games left:

• Everton (a)
• Manchester City (h)
• Sheffield United (h)
• Chelsea (h)
• Burnley (a)

They face three teams struggling in the relegation zone, a visit from a Chelsea side that blow hot and cold while also having to face Manchester City at the City Ground.

With one more point than Luton Town on the board, 26, is their run-in more favourable than ours?

Clearly, every point is precious, but, with yur head ruling who do you think will join Sheffield United and Burnley in dropping into the EFL Championship?

Who Will Be Relegated With Sheffield United and Burnley?



Nottingham Forest!

Nottingham Forest!

Luton Town!

Luton Town!

Or, with the point deductions handed down to Everton and Nottingham Forest, could it all be decided in the appeals room?

    For me as I’ve said in a previous post has left us with a mountain climb with injuries in defence and i think to many players have carried our load for to long through this period and whilst giving their all I see tiredness and energy levels dropping. I don’t know if the clubs data analyst agreed with me but that’s what I see. Now more to the point . What I’ve seen this season is to survive you can be as good as everyone else we are but without a squad with massive strength in depth you can’t survive but equally massive spending doesn’t work either. So in future that’s the lesson needed to be learnt.
