A Science Write Up On Villa

A Science Write Up On Villa

SCIENCE WRITE-UP

INTRODUCTION

Well I have just completed my annual '13 games to go predictions' and decided to compare us to Arsenal, because in my opinion, it is all about getting in that top 4 (Man Utd are going to walk away with the title).

METHOD

I plan to estimate the likelihood that Villa will make it into the top 4 this season, through the medium of guesswork. I shall compare the fixtures of the 2 main protagonists, Arsenal and Aston Villa.

APPARATUS

- My head
- not my heart
- fingers for typing

RESULTS

VILLA

Villa 0 v 0 Chelsea
Villa 2 v 0 Stoke City
Man City 2 v 1 Villa
Liverpool 1 v 1 Villa
Man United 2 v 1 Villa
Villa 2 v 1 Everton
Villa 3 v 1 West Ham
Bolton 1 v 1 Villa
Villa 3 v 0 Hull City
Fulham 1 v 1 Villa
Middlesbrough 1 v 2 Villa
Villa 3 v 1 Newcastle

ARSENAL

Arsenal 2 v 1 Sunderland
Arsenal 1 v 0 Fulham
West Brom 1 v 1 Arsenal
Arsenal 1 v 0 Blackburn
Newcastle 2 v 2 Arsenal
Arsenal 1 v 1 Man City
Wigan Athletic 1 v 2 Arsenal
Liverpool 0 v 0 Arsenal
Arsenal 2 v 0 Middlesbrough
Portsmouth 1 v 2 Arsenal
Arsenal 1 v 1 Chelsea
Manchester United 2 v 1 Arsenal
Arsenal 3 v 0 Stoke City

FINDINGS

Villa would obtain 25 points, Arsenal, 26. With the 7 point advantage, that would put Villa in the Champions League. I would forecast strong growth from that point from the claret and blue subject, meanwhile, a degree of stagnation may take place in North London.

If Villa are ahead of Arsenal by the time we play West Ham, we will have a seriously good chance of making it (look at both sides' last 6 games!)

You forgot the Spurs game on the 15 March. I assume you put us down for a win. as your points total would suggest.

I can't say I think we'll win at Wigan, but then I do think we'll beat West Brom & Newcastle. The other thing you have to take into account is that by the time we play Man Utd they'll most likely have won the league, so Ferguson will more than likely be saving his best players for a possible CL or FA cup final. I think Villa will finish 3rd, its between Arsenal & Chelsea for 4th. I think Chelsea will probably edge it depending on their new manager.

i think we should not have any expectations. its the way MON has talked about it the whole way this season. keeping a lid on it. the win and the way we went about it at blackburn felt like an important one going into chelsea. its the best way to think, one by one...

I don't get it! You have us down for just one away win for the rest of the season and have us drawing away to Bolton AND Fulham. We have the best away record in the prem this season but you have us being stronger at home, something that has not been born out by results. I'm sorry but the head you claim to be using is way out of date and needs a sofware upggrade!
