    To be fair, they would still have dropped the most points - but Fulham would be the worst off.

    That article removes every teams top scorer which is not what I asked. Without Van Persie, with every team maintaining their normal squad, Man Utd would be second in the league.

    and what exactly do you base this on?

    Well Man Utd would be on 65 without RVP, maximum. Other teams would be on the same number of points they are currently on in the league minimum, with slight increases for some teams based on results and scorers when playing Man Utd, and hence a further slight decrease in points for Man Utd. I am not keen enough to calculate this fully, it is more likely Man U would in fact be between 3rd and 5th.

    Quite simple really, but overall this type of postulation is utterly redundant which is what my original point was intending.

    QPR have spent £60million on players since this time last year and still couldn't stay in the Premier League

    At least Reading do have a pretty decent chance of getting promoted straight back again to the PL next campaign, because they'll be able to keep all their players without any wage problems. The fans were pissed at the start too because they didn't make many new star signings like the other promoted teams (Soton and West Ham) had done; they had a Championship squad for the PL.


    I can see QPR having a very difficult season next season like 'Arry has already states, they'll struggle and diffuse like Blackburn and Wolves have done. They'll have to clear out half the squad and shape the squad again from scratch and compose a new team

    Massive and comprehensive win by Villa. Newcastle drop to a place above Wigan only.

    Expect Wigan to go down - it would be the MIRACLE of their relegation survivals if they made it up.

    QPR/Reading were down a long time ago - just disappointed their match petered out to a stale 0-0 and they only seemed to wake up in added on time.

    Barton, sat in France, attacking Bosingwa for laughing at the end when it was clear he was talking to someone and seemed to be laughing at that rather than the relegation and Barton conveniently didn't mention that manager Harry was also having a chuckle after meeting Adkins and someone else. Too scared to go there. Laughable that he's sat in France lambasting his team mates when I doubt he'd have the same tenacity to say it to their faces.

    Personally, I don't think it's laughable and Barton is 100% right. It doesn't matter if they are talking to anyone, their club had just been relegated, show some sadness even if just for fans. Minimum go over and clap the fans to say thanks for the support. Bosingwa just went straight down the tunnel without a care in the world. Epitomises the money problem within the Premier League.

    And the mighty Villa one step closer to safety. Now onto Norwich!

    Where oh where are those who negged me for saying Villa would stay up? In particular that SUNDERLAND fan?

    Oh happy days.

    Apologises on a post card kids.

    Bentekke, Weimann, Agbonlahor, Guzan and Vlaar. = Quality.

    Villa will not get relegated.

    Whoever negged me, when Villa stay up, you owe me an apology.

    I thought Lowton was brilliant last night, fingers crossed we can get 3 points against Norwich and may be a point against Chelsea.

    Hope the job is done before Wigan though!

    I think Villa have the makings of a really good team, it seems like Lambert is finally starting to have an impact. Benteke will probably be off in the summer but if they can keep the team together and strengthen i think in the long term they'll do really well. It makes a refreshing change from the high wage mercenaries (see QPR) that a lot of other clubs will go for.

    Three points against Norwich and we'll be safe. But, a loss would put us right back as one of the favourites to go down again.

    Do you reckon Benteke would be as good if he left? I think he might be like Barry, Downing, Milner and Young - still quality, but not as good as they were at Villa. In my opinion, he should stay at Villa and become a club legend, rather than move to another team and be forgotten in 50 years.

    Hmm that's a good point, he's the main man at Villa but wouldn't be elsewhere, and we've often seen players tail off after an impressive first season. If he were to move somewhere like Chelsea he'd be wasted and it would completely ruin his development.

    I think he'd fit in perfectly at Spurs, but they've been after Damiao for ages.

    I think there must be something with teams that have a predominantly white and blue strip and relegation.

    Wouldn't mind Wigan going down but would hate Aston Villa going down.

    Norwich vs. Stoke vs. Southampton vs. Aston Villa vs. Newcastle vs. Sunderland vs. Wigan

    All fighting to avoid that dreaded 18th place position. Although to be fair, Stoke seem likely to stay up anyway but it's also still mathematically possible for Fulham to go down (but obviously there top flight demise is beyond unlikely as they look heading to finish in the top 10).
