I have had a lot of time over the summer to think about how we will fare this season. It not about the first six games its about all thirty eight, however it pans out finishing 16th or above is the end goal.

I do think we will do a bit better than most people think, we have a number of factors in our favour for the start of the season such as :
1. All promoted sides have a "bounce" over their opening matches.
2. We spent most of last season operating with a low amounts of possession so life in the premier league against the big boys will not be so strange.
3. The World Cup showed that the "Cardiff Style" is in vogue so we could be well placed against a number of teams.
4. Our massive team ethic and togetherness is going to be worth a number of points over the course of the season.


My glass is half full and I think we will get the 36-38 points needed to stay up, we can then build on that for the future.

4 points from the first 6 games won't be a good start mate, its relegation form and means we will be playing catch up after 6.

We need 6/7 point's minimum, whether we get them or not is another matter.


I didn’t say 4 points would be good, I said more than that would be lol but no seriously I’m just trying to be realistic and can see 4 points but hope for more. We have got some tough teams there so may pick up some points after we’ve played them.


You are of course correct, my bad, I miss-read your post :thumbup:


I’m already right mate! :lol: if we can get a win and a few draws it will be a good start. Can’t wait and this season I have no expectations other than the team out there on the day of a match to give it their all.

Before this thread came on I reckoned on 6 points possible 7 that will be the average we will need for survival.

Bournemouth A Draw

4 points out of a possible 18.


WDDLLL = 5pts.
They attack family stands, they sing songs about hillsborough, they attack disabled chelsea supporters and they do nazi salutes. The jacks, they're the scum of the earth

I think we will shock a few teams with the pace early on and they will struggle to work us out which should result in a good few points early on.

We will have a good start and i think the Arsenal & Chelsea games coming when they do is perfect for us given they have new managers who will not know the league, systems or players

I think we will get 11/12 points from the first 6 games. Then it will start to get harder as the season progresses

8 pts. Beat bournmouth/Newcastle, get lucky against one of the better teams and a couple of draws.
We will take some getting used to then it will be interesting to see which way it goes

I would be happy with 5 pts with a home win against Newcastle and a draw against Bmouth and Hudds.

I said it before the magic 40 is what we need to stay up and if we can have 24 points by New Year day then i be happy.

I'd be happy with 4 or 5 points. Its the 6 game block following where we need to get some points on the board. Home games against Burnley, Fulham, Leicester and Brighton will hopefully see get a tidy haul. Anything at Spurs or Liverpool is very unlikely.

I know it's just a thread about people's opinions on a set amount of games, but the season won't be determined by the first six games.
Just felt the need to point out that at the end of September last season, Crystal Palace record was P7 W0 D0 L7 F0 A17.
They finished the season on 44 points in 11th place, so anything is possible.
What is pretty certain is that there will be more losses than victories.
The key will be taking maximum points at home from relegation rivals.
Feeling pretty positive that sell out crowds at the CCS will make a big difference to securing valuable points.
