Premier League Relegation 2010 / 11

There are 2 teams that stand out for me this season in this the relegation market. 1 is a team that would be expected to be down towards the bottom end and the other is a team that is expected in the most part to finish in the top half of the table..

Before I get to those teams, Blackpool are a near certainty for Premier League relegation for me and there's no other real standout team. Wolves are dogged and have a good organised unit and set up with MacCarthy there. Westbrom can play superb football and I expect them to win a lot of their home games and Newcastle are being very much underrated; I don't expect them to struggle too much and a mid table place is likely.

That means, for me, there are 2 spots wide open for teams to take the plunge with relegation to the Championship and 2 sides that look decent value to fill those 2 relegation spots are Wigan (9/4) and Sunderland (11/1).

Selections Offering Value:

Pick 1: Sunderland for Premier League Relegation @ 11/1 (general) - For me, a terrible summer for Sunderland. I really expected them to push on from last season, sign 3 or 4 quality players and be challenging for a top 7 finish. Instead, they've gone backwards. Their signings are not of the standard / type I expected and I think will struggle to adapt or take time to settle in and they've just made a huge error in selling star man Kenwyne Jones. I don't know who they will get in as a replacement but I'm fairly sure it will be a step down. A significant injury to Darrent Bent this year and it could be trouble for Sunderland. I wouldn't be surprised to see Bruce go this season either. Great value at such a big price.

Pick 2: Wigan for Premier League relegation @ 9/4 (general) - Wigan are a team expected to be down towards the bottom and I fear for them this season. Martinez has an attacking philosophy and that can be dangerous for a team like Wigan. They are average to say the least and a team I get the impression that are far from together. Want away players like Scharner and Charles NZogbia 1 wonders where their heads will be this year. I can see them being very unorganised at the back and putting their heads down a lot this season if things are not going well and wouldn't be surprised to see them battle Blackpool for bottom spot.
