Former Sheffield Wednesday
star Carlton Palmer believes the Hillsborough side will be relegated
on Saturday - and he will not shed a tear.
Despite having six highly
successful seasons at the Yorkshire club, Palmer reveals he will have
no mixed feelings if his current club Coventry consign Wednesday to
"This is not about one
game, it is about the way they have played for the whole season.
"There are 38 matches
and obviously over the course of those they have not played well
enough to stay up. By and large in football you get what you
"I had some great times
there and it is sad for a big club to be relegated, but that is what
is going to happen - they have no chance of staying up."
And the 34-year-old is
confident that it will be his new club that send Peter Shreeves' side
into Division One at Highfield Road this weekend.
"Wednesday have three
games left and if they were to win them all then they would stay up,
but that is just not going to happen.
"For a start they won't
beat us on Saturday and they also have to play Arsenal who are in
tremendous form so that won't happen either."
Despite his optimism about
Saturday's match the battling midfielder is quick to point out that
City have not achieved enough this season.
"We haven't won
anything so there is not really much to get too excited about.
"We were aiming to
finish in the top ten and we haven't achieved that so the season has
to go down as a bit of a disappointment.
"We have got good
players here and we should be higher up the league than we are so in
that respect it has not been a memorable campaign."
