Being embroiled in yet another relegation battle had me thinking about how we've rarely ever had long to wait for the next torturous instalment of promotion or relegation drama.

Our 11 year Premier League stretch aside, we have to go all the way back to the late 70s to enjoy a sustained period of stress-free mediocrity as Wanderers fans.

Obviously, this season is no different and we'll be biting our nails right down to the wire once again.

2015-16: 24th (relegated)
2014-15: 18th

1999-00: 6th (lost in play-offs)

1992-93: 2nd (promoted)
1991-92: 13th
1990-91: 4th (lost in play-offs)
1989-90: 6th (lost in play-offs)
1988-89: 10th
1987-88: 3rd (promoted)
1986-87: 21st (relegated)
1985-86: 18th
1984-85: 17th
1983-84: 10th

Which of you Nutters think we'll just manage to cling onto our Championship status for another season and how many think we're doomed to fail?

Let's hear it below... UP or DOWN?

I've been up and down for weeks. I just can't call it.
I can see us beating Wolves and losing to Burton. That's how we do things.
I can't believe I've spent 60 years worrying about this shite.

Defeatist.
We can beat them. That's the madness of football.
They're promoted,and although not yet champions,psychologically,their foot may be off the gas.
Don't write us off here.

Down because I am a pessimist and because we have a history of going down by narrow margins in unfortunate ways. Remember the last time we got relegated from the Prem.

You probably wouldn’t like the coconut green tea I bought last week then. It’s a beautiful thing.

Breakfast: Earl Gray
Lunch: Green Tea
After Dinner: Earl Gray
Supper: Lemon and Ginger

Huzzah!

Assam for me. Good and strong. Don't mind Darjeeling either.

Lemon and ginger is very nice.
