    Can we all agree it’s Cardiff and Huddersfield but who will be the 3rd?

    Newcastle Fulham or Soton?

    I’m going to also throw in Burnley

    Palace always escape. Spam have too much.probably Newcastle too ( I think it’s just a **** start for them.

    Newcastle are most likely imo unless they get sold and then spend big in January.

    I'd throw in Brighton as a possible too. They are very inconsistent.

    If Zaha gets injured or sulks all season...

    Hard to see Cardiff surviving given the start they’ve had, and just the general lack of quality in their squad. Huddersfield achieved a minor miracle staying up last year, but I’d agree that they look in trouble second time around.

    The third spot is hard to call, but I’d echo the sentiments of others in mentioning Newcastle, Brighton, Palace and Southampton. I think West Ham will have too much and Pellegrini will get them playing better as the season progresses.

    Very early but it's difficult to see Cardiff and HTFC surviving. Think the other will be from Newcastle, Brighton or Burnley.

    I think West Ham will finish comfortably mid-table, and possibly above us.

    That’s them gone, then.

    Zaha is having a right old sulk and with that Palace cannot win - they are a definite candidate for the third spot. I don't think Palace have scored at home yet this season.

    Let's have a look at the recent form guide.

    Oh ****.

    ....or Fulham. Think we'll be 6th/7th bottom.

    Before Saturday, I would have said we were nailed on to finish in the top half. Just when Watford convince you they've turned the corner and are going to do good things, they throw in a stinker like Saturday to tell everyone, "well actually we can still be crap and don't get into thinking we're safe from a relegation battle."

    I would be surprised to see any side, apart from the very worst teams, lose by 4 goals at home to a side outside of the "top 6" this season.

    Right now, I do not know. Watford are so frustrating to follow in this way. Every season they've started well, then trailed off badly. So far this has been a mini full season already. Will we go down?.....no...I just can't see that happening. I think both Cardiff and Huddersfield will be well short come the end of the season. However, that final place is up for grabs, although Fulham have massive problems defensively.

    What elevated us, was the high pressing game and every player being committed to it. Now it seems to have been worked out, and this will be a test for us. Is Gracia able to change things? I think he can and I would expect something a bit different against Wolves in terms of personnel and formation. Gracia is an excellent man manager and when he has time, he can work well with the team. Where I think he has a weakness, is during a match when a change of tactic is required. He hasn't done well with changing things on the fly so far, imo.

    Plan A is often very good though, and so far that's worked more often than not. I think Watford will be fine, but I'm not so confident over a top half finish as I was this time last week.
