Indeed. And the team four behind us has a game in hand. I think we will be OK. But, to suggest it will need a huge turnaround in fortunes across the board for us to go down is simply incorrect.

Are you assuming we will Linked Image get any more points.

What a bunch more f drama queens. We are staying up and it will be easy. Piddle a piss, in fact.

No I am not making assumptions we will not get any more points. The clue was the bit where I said I think we will be OK, so by paying a bit more attention you could probably deduce from that that I think we will pick up more points.

The only person making assumptions or predictions, call it what you like, is you. All I and others have said is that the picture could change very quickly indeed - for better or worse - you know, such as losing five games in a row as a certain team has.

Pointing out that we may not cruise our way to safety/having a different opinion to you doesn't make anyone a drama queen.

I know a team that has lost 5 on the trot AND had 9 points taken off them and STILL don't find themselves in the bottom 3. It's effing amazing really.

All of the teams below us would need a complete transformation to overtake us. Ain't going to happen.

We aren't down there coz were as shit as the others, were down there coz we've been shat on

We aren't in trouble if we carry on as we have all season.

mmm...

repeat of my post the other day...

form over last 8 games... 

Reading w4 d2 l2 ... 14 points 

Rotherham w2 d3 l3 ... 9 points 

Bolton w3 d0 l5 .... 9 points 

Wigan w1 d4 l3 ... 7 points 

Millwall w2 d1 l5 ... 7 points 

Ipswich w0 d6 l2 ... 6 points 

Birmingham w1 d2 l5 ... 4 points

But a season lasts 46 games. Just using recent form is silly

It is though. What happened in the last 8 games is no indicator of how we’ve performed in the previous 31.
Nor I suspect how we’ll perform in the next 7

So if that carried on only Reading would overtake us.

We just need to avoid defeat against the teams around us, we might be fine but it does seem we’ve all got really tough games coming up, I hate to admit it but there’s a few games I want the villa to win, Rotherham away being the main one.

I'd rather take the risk, feck Witton

OK...

He's right though. Using the last few games is silly. How about how we've been playing and against who? bare stats don't really mean anything, in this context.

I would be worried if I was a Reading fan.

Pointless thread. There is NO WAY we’re going down.
13:23, Tue 2 Apr
7 points and we're good, which is more than achievable. I actually think we'll take 3 points of either Leeds or Sheff Utd.

As I've said before, we haven't become a bad team overnight. Statistically speaking, we might even get a key decision go in our favour in one of those seven games!

Didn't realise how bad Reading's run in is. That's horrible, they will do well to get one win out of them.
