A 33/1 relegation treble is the pick for Sam Tizzle in the upcoming


A new Premier League season beckons and it’s that time of year again where we get our football calculators and start trying to predict who will win the league?, Who will get relegated? Who will make the champions league? And who will finish as the top scorer?

In this article I will offer my thoughts on who I think are the three teams I think could be destined for the drop, given their activities in the transfer window and strength of their current squads.

My 33/1 Relegation Trio

When betting on multiple teams to be relegated, bookmakers will offer special prices on this to happen, so you can cash in on bigger odds, if you pick out the three teams to go down as a combined bet. Here are my three selections, which come in as a combined bet of 33/1 ahead of the new season.

Bournemouth

Look away now Bournemouth fans, I can’t help but agree with the bookies on this one. I have huge concerns over the quality of this inexperienced squad and also whether Scott Parker has the tools to guide this team out of a relegation battle.

Whilst Nottingham Forest have spent a treasure chest on bolstering their options for the new season, Bournemouth have remained stagnant, I fear that they don’t have the ability or know how to win enough games in the toughest league in the world. When I look through their squad I see a long line of players that have been relegated, either with Bournemouth or other clubs. The Cherries three most valuable assets are Phillip Billing, Dominic Solanke and David Brooks, three players that have all experienced relegation, but have never fought their way out of a relegation battle.

We saw with Norwich last year that the Premier League takes no prisoners, you can’t just simply turn up and make up the numbers, you really have to pump money into your squad to give it a fighters chance, and even then you will need some luck along the way.

Is Dominik Solanke the man to fire them to safety? He didn’t exactly set the Premier League last time around did he, he only has 4 goals in 63 Premier League appearances.

Fulham

Again, this one will probably come as no surprise, it seems to be the general consensus that the Cottagers are in for another tough time in the top tier.

The age old theory ‘Mitrovic is a great Championship player, but he can’t do it in the Premier League’ will rise it’s head again. I hope he is given more playing time than he was in his last Premier League campaign as I feel that he remains their biggest hope of survival.

In their relegation campaign of 2020/21 Mitrovic was rarely a starter, something which baffled me throughout the season because for me he was their biggest goal threat. Mitro can be prolific in the right system and league, proven by his record breaking Championship season just gone which saw him score an unprecedented 43 goals, smashing the previous record of 30 that had been set by Ivan Toney in the previous season for Brentford.

His international record as well suggests that he isn’t just a Championship performer. The big question is, do they have enough without the big Serb? I would go as far as to say this squad looks weaker than the squad that they got relegated with last time round. Fulham had an incredible Championship campaign, no one can deny them of that, but they have lost a pivotal player in Fabio Carvalho having sold him to Liverpool.

It’s little things like that which sway me into thinking that the club isn’t ready to give the Premier League a serious crack.

Everton

I don’t think I will be upsetting too many Everton fans by including them in my selections, I am sure you will have the same concerns that I am seeing. It’s a crying shame to see the current decline of a great English club, steeped in history. Just what has gone wrong?

The owners in fairness to them haven’t been shy putting their hands in their pockets in previous transfer windows, they just haven’t got it right with their signings and too many big money players have come in and not justified their fees, and let’s not forget the bizarre appointment of Rafa Benitez as manager, what was all that about? The Toffees were a horrible watch last season, they lacked grit and quality and they have just sold the one player that offered them exactly that in Richarlison.

Their hopes this season lie on Dominic Calvert-Lewin who was plagued by injuries last season, and has only had one good Premier League campaign as a professional footballer. The addition of James Tarkowski is a shrewd signing, I will still can’t fathom that paying £20,000,000 for his ex Burnley teammate Dwight McNeil was a good idea though, given he provided 0 goals and 1 assist for the Clarets last season.

Only a handful of Everton players came out of last season with any real credit, Anthony Gordon is a new fans favourite and Demarai Gray started the campaign brightly, even if he did tail off a bit towards the end. I think it’s going to be a long season for Frank and if he can’t get a tune out of these lads they are in big trouble.

They need to be tougher on the road, it’s a big ask expecting the Goodison fans to get you over the line each and every week.
