    I know we still have this amazing season ahead of us with 13 games to go and anyone's guess as to where we're going to finish, but my question is there
    is clearly a grouping of about 5 teams in danger of being a relegation dogfight namely tomorrow's opponents wolves being a key candidate for the CCC who are your picks to go down? Also out of those to go down do you think there is any 'gems' worth poaching? or is it just worth looking abroad to bring in cheap players who have obviously done our club very well. My only thought is regarding the quota of british based players so i thought i'd get youre boys input. If Rovers go down I would obviously love to nab Hoilett although I'd be interested in getting moses from wigan if they drop i think if he kicks on he could really be a top player but that team is just plain awful!

    Chris Samba would have been first on my list - looks like he's Russia bound though.

    I really think we still need a left-back - Stephen Warnock? <yikes>

    Well last season Ba was around the top of our list when my mates and I discussed it, in the top three I think. This season I wouldn't mind a pop at Jarvis, canny player.

    coz they don't have anyone worth poaching (must make them highly likely to drop).

    don't want Hoilett

    good player but reports of ego / bad attitude. Plus he's a cheat.

    Samba I'm glad we didn't go with either, pretending to be injured to try and push through a transfer, again - bad attitude. We don't want players like that anymore, we want fighters who understand loyalty.

    Diame, if Tiote goes.
    That's probably it.

    Defo Mark Davies, esp if Guthrie doesn't sign a new deal.

    Or that, yes!
    I certainly don't want any strikers for clubs going down.
    Unless their free. :D

    Jarvis is truely inspirational for Wolves, do they actually score when he doesn't play?

    Jarvis is a good player but is he better than Gutierrez?
    I think he would be good here at Newcastle.
    Fletcher is also a very good player for Wolves i feel.

    I'd have Faurlin from QPR, looked quality before that injury. Also Moses, Hoilett, Jarvis, Fletcher. If Bolton go down, i'd take Holden aswell (providing he's not injured).

    Aside from those going down, any decent players at Rangers seen as they might just be having a fire sale in June?

    Speaking of Rangers, i like the looks of that CB for Celtic - Mulgrew.
    A lot of the lads on here don't rate SPL players as they see them a Championship material.

    Izzaguire looks a cracking player as well, worth a look for left back?

    Haha I must. Diame would be the main one I'd target.
