Well, this is just like public transport (yeah, as if I`d know about such commoner things…!…ahem) you wait a while then two come along at once!

Last night, text chatting with the one and only Revd Pete, I started to feel ‘ouch, we are going down` feeling. MOST unlike me, but I decided to look at the other teams run in. I say most unlike me because I am usually only focused on Villa, I don`t really care what other teams do. However, this time, I thought I`d best!

So… as Thorpy has covered the predictions, I`ll just show the upcoming games and will probably get a notice to take it down by the league legal eagles (I kid you not!) then we can move to the doo dah from Thorpy.

Is there a formula for predicting who will avoid the drop?By Michael Da Silva BBC Sport “Ask the manager of a relegation-threatened Premier League club what he thinks of his rivals’ chances of avoiding the drop and he will piously insist that ‘we can only concentrate on our own performances’.

Hello fellow Villans! Well it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these – a good 2-3 season in fact when we were chasing champions league football!

Sadly, under McLeish’s guidance, we now find ourselves battling for a different kind of reason at the foot of the table, so I’ve done a little predictor based on results between now and the end of the season. I’ve tried to be fairly realistic, if slightly on the pessimistic side, and for now i think we’ll be safe. That said, if our current competition keep getting freak results, maybe we could very quickly find ourselves in the mire!

Alex Mcleish claims our team that includes Petrov, Bent, Gabby, Ireland, N`zogbia, Albrighton, Given, Bannan, Gardner, Dunne and Collins isn’t good enough for anything other than a relegation scrap! (despite saying earlier in the season that anything less than 9th is a failure, and Faulkner’s comments about challenging for europe).

Despite this, in a relegation scrap we are! Hopefully Fear can make sense of the fixtures below, and make them look semi-readable for you, but here’s my estimated finish positions and points…. I’ll endeavour to keep this updated for you as the seasons end pans out!

Final Positions (Estimated)
Villa 37
Blackburn 36
Bolton 36
QPR 33
Wigan 32
