The battle for fourth update... Last one: Villa's Battle For 4th - Update 7
The verdict: A win, but it's not enough!
Good victory away at Pompey yesterday, and quite an entertaining game to watch too I thought… Carew scored a well taken goal but then missed a penalty, and Delfouneso opened his premier league account.
But where does that leave us after Tottenham' s excellent result against Chelsea?
The verdict is - needing some results to go our way! It's still possible if we win all our remaining games, but it's unlikely really now. Anyway, here's how I see things:
4th - Tottenham - 69 points
5th - Man City - 68 points
6th - Villa - 66 points
7th - Liverpool - 64 points
8th - Everton - 61 points
We will hopefully beat Blues at home too, which would boost us up to the 68 point mark - enough to grab 4th most seasons! With our cup runs too, and finishing above Liverpool, I'd see that as a successful season, despite what some fans may say. Also, when you factor in the improvement in the likes of spurs and city, it's not too shabby at all.
Hopefully this season has one final nice twist for us all! UTV!
