EPL: Relegation Day: Who Stays, Who Goes

"You and your buddies are going down, man!"

How are you feeling–better how do you take responsibility today–if you’re a player like Morgan Gamst Pedersen. The frosty-tipped Norwegian has been at Blackburn’s Elwood Park since 2004. He recently–2010–re-upped for four more.

Yet, if a confluence of circumstances shake out a certain today, Pederson could see his life in Lancashire turned upside down.

Down to the Championship–not likely, but still–will he need to be transferred or will the club move other personal to accommodate his contract–on the larger side.

Pederson, just one of the players whose next year at least will be decided by today’s action.

The other clubs looking to stay afloat on Premiership.

Look Back: Clint Dempsey’s give-and-go scoop shot against Liverpool keeps Fulham up in 2007. Long considered the most important goal by an American in club play.

    Personally, I would love to see Blackburn Rovers and Birmingham City get relegated. Why? Blackburn for the way they treated Sam Allardice. This would be the definition of karma. And Birmingham, well there is no particular reason – McCleish just annoys me!

      Ha, McLeish just annoys me. Best reason yet.

      Can’t see it happening to Blackburn, but I would consider it humorous given the amount of talent they’ve wasted there and the Allardyce thing. Kind of again points out his value.

        I think it goes back to his Aberdeen playing days under Alex Ferguson…

        I don’t thing Blackburn will go down either, but I would love to see their free fall, Leeds United style and get asset stripped too!

    I would love to–if merely for the story–love to see Blackpool win away today and stay up.

      a blackpool win just seems to be too far fetched, eh? Man Utd with two dropped points all season at home. couple that with West Ham and “Carlito’s Way” doing the business in 2007 to stay up…i just dont see that happening twice in such a short span of time at Old Trafford.

    Based completely on the propensity of my Liverpool side to waste points at their grounds, I’m hoping for Blackpool and Wigan to go down. And if Stoke City could somehow go into adminstration and displace West Ham at the bottom of the table, that would be a bonus.

    Park for United 1:0 Blackpool.

    i dont see the point in blackpool staying up. if there is one team epitomized by a single player, it is blackpool and said player probably would not have stayed with the club had they stayed up, and he surely will not now. the real story would be charlie adam staying with blackpool as they go down. he was a boon in fantasy, thats for sure.

      Not sure I follow your first sentence. Surely staying in the top flight is obvious, no?

        its obvious charlie adam was leaving at the end of this season, regardless of whether blackpool avoided the drop. he did hand in a jan. transfer request, which was also about the time blackpool started tanking. it appears to be a move by a big club to squeeze the little club.

        you gotta believe charlie adam is worth more than the seven million liverpool offered, but maybe this was the peak season for charlie adam. blackpool desereve at least fifteen million for him, especially if his dead balls are worth ten alone.

    So, with the season done, who’s ready for a nice offseason transfer frenzy? I think for many reasons it should be pretty fevered.
