Sunderland Most Likely to Stay Up

Sunderland Most Likely to Stay Up

Vital Blackburn's most recent poll, suggested by Bents4eng asked, "Who, out of the teams that come up next season do you think is the most likely to stay up?" Most feel Sunderland.

Almost half the voters, 46% see Sunderland as the team most likely to stay up at the end of the 2007-2008 season, from the teams that have/will eventually be promoted from the Championship to the Premiership.

Roy Keane took Sunderland from the foot of the Championship to eventually lead them to the Championship Title. History has often favoured the League winners from the season before to survive, but even this in recent years has been in a slight decline. Keane's clear confidence in his team, the financial backing and his standing in the game to attract names is clearly enough to convince most Sunderland can, and will stay up next season.

Sunderland and Birmingham both staying up was an opinion that quite a few shared, this option gained 23%. Birmingham alone saw 16% with ALL three teams promoted teams avoiding the drop fancied by 7%, but this is highly unlikely to happen?!?!

So in summary
None of them - 6%
Sunderland - 46%
Birmingham - 16%
West Brom/Derby - 7%
All of them - 1%
Sunderland AND Birmingham - 23%
Other - 1%


We've decided the Player of the Month for May, now we look for the Rovers Goal of the Month for May, so the current poll is asking, "What was May's top Goal?" Unfortunately it appears that our friends at the FA and Premier League's are REALLY clamping down on YouTube's ability to show goals, so it doesn't look like I'll be able to give you reminders any more?!?!

As for what you think, cast your vote and why not have your say on the latest polls findingsā€¦

I have to agree here, it won't be easy for Sunderland but they'll stay up, think Birmingham will also so it's going to make for a VERY interesting relegation battle next season, and one that could very well involve half a dozen, or more clubs right until the death in my opinion, I'd not like to call who the sides to go down will be though. My early thoughts though on two of the three are WBA/Derby and Wigan.

I for one hope sunderland go down. I have a long memory and keane's comments about the Rovers V Chelsea semi were insulting and b****ks! Arrogant ********! Definitely Wigan to drop.. also think Fulham will be hovering again and then probably Derby or West Brom

Keane was bang out of order with what he said about that game wasn't he. I sooo want that to come back and haunt him when both Rovers and Chelsea play them home and away next season! I think they'll stay up and could well do what Wigan and Reading have done previously?!?!

Wigan look fairly certain to drop, Im not sure about Middlesboro either. The play off winners will have to be on their toes and Fulham could be vulnerable as well. Man City are 10/1 to drop and that has already been worth a fiver of my money.

Sunderland top six, now this person is braver than Keane and his previously spoken about comments. Go out and buy your new shoes know durks as daddy is GETTING a new pair of shoes no two ways about it! it would be just like us to screw it up against Sunderland now wouldn't it so he can give it all that again lol!

I think it will depend on who keane buys in defence, if he's seriously looking at Todd as the player to lead the line and keep out the goals then sorry they are going straight down again. Upfront I dont think they have anything startling and nothing really in midfield that would make u sit up and look!! ( ne1 guess that my girl is a Newcastle fan lol ) I d have to say that the teams that should fear the drop apart from the Mackems are Man City ( depending on Manager) Fulham( who are not great and Sanchez will not have the game to keep them up), Boro( with Viduka and Yak maybe leaving, who'll score the goals), Wigan( losing a lot of theie better players), The Brum, as I still have not forgiven Mr Potatohead for calling Rovers a smaller club when Savage moved from there and one of Derby/WBA

Middlesbrough could be worth a punt as they could well be sucked into the dog fight next season, especially if they lose Mark Viduka and Yakubu, can't see Malcolm Christie scoring too many goals to keep them up!
