Massive day which could almost clinch Irons safety

Ok, so let’s check it out before another nervous Sunday of relegation-involved clubs go into action!

Villa at home to Palace -who appear to be on the sun beds – and Bournemouth at home to a seemingly revitalised Leicester City.

This surely is the must win of  must win games for Villa because it’s followed by Everton away and Arsenal at home before they come to our gaff.

It’s really hard to see anything more than four points from those three at best and if you allow for seven it takes them to our current 34 with an infinitely worse goal difference.

Bournemouth meet Man City away, Saints at home and Everton at Goodison in their final game needing six points to level with us and again with an infinitely worse goal difference than the Irons. A win against Saints looks a must although another three looks the toughest possible call.

Yes I know football can play the most ridiculous tricks but come on we could almost declare ourselves safe this evening – everything crossed everybody

  1. Will you stop making me nervous! 🙂
    Hopefully the results will run our way, but I would rather us win our games, starting against Watford.

  2. Please don’t count your chickens Hugh
    .I do tend to agree but but but “it’s a funny ole game” as Mr Greaves said!!

  3. Please play a solid defence Mr Moyes, which means no Cresswell, put a left footed Tea lady in the job, but not him and leave Noble on the bench, where a Player of his age belongs. Then we should beat Watford.

  4. Even though Villa are winning we could be pretty clear where we are before we play watford. Bournemouth play twice and villa go to Everton. If we play our cards right – ie beat watford could possibly end up above Brighton. Unfortunately nothing is done till its done. Play as we did yesterday hopefully we will be ok. Everything crossed !

  5. I feel you’ve jinxed us by saying this. Luck has been with Villa today and Watford yesterday, the decisions went against us in the Spurs, Chelsea and Burnley games, I feel we have no luck at the moment. Kindly remove this article before it comes back to bite us in the arse with a VAR decision in Watfords favour

  6. There goes the 11yr old getting ahead of himself again.
    Why not shut the f**k up

    • Interesting that you are infantile enough to read the thoughts of an 11 year old and give a response AFTER the results rather than before. Obviously an expert in passing judgement when it’s clear to everyone else – maybe anger therapy is required!
