Villa's Battle For 4th - Update 6
Our latest update for the battle for 4th place. Last one: Villa's Battle For 6th, Sorry, 4th - Update 5
Spurs fall, City lead, and Villa hang right on in there!
So… here's an update following our victory away to Bolton on our fight for the much-maligned top-4 spot!
Manchester City put themselves firmly in the driving seat now, by beating Burnley away (must confess I had Burnley to scrap a point here as they've been fairly reasonable at home)
Spurs slipped up against everyone's bogey team this season (including themselves!) Sunderland, with X-Spur Darren Bent (in the summer - yes please!) bagging a brace!
Everton drew with West-Ham, which surely spells the end of any lingering hopes of nicking that last berth.
Liverpool drew against the blose (a result I had down tbh). Apparently, Gerrard's face told a story all on its own!
And Villa - well of course we all know we ran a fairly convincing (apart from only scoring the one) win against a tough Bolton team on their own patch.
SO…… this is now how the table might look!
Man City - 68
Villa - 66
Spurs - 64
Liverpool - 64
Everton - 63
Here's what I have down for our next round, after our FA cup game of course:
Villa - Everton - Draw
Liverpool - Fulham - Draw
Man City - Blues - City Win
Tottenham - Arsenal - Arsenal win
I think it's going to take 1 team to really shine and draw away from the pack, something which up to this point nobody seems to want to do!
