Villa got to 43 v Burnley. So any lingering doubt (like Soton) that they could possibly be involved was gone (with other results too) and then obviously they put up a big performance v Pool which was expected. I too think they will be saving something for Citeh so Thursday will be a draw imo because Villa won’t just lie down and Burnley aren’t that good.

Football has undergone a process of bielsification; pressing and possessing, passing rather than dribbling, intercepting high up the field rather than making last-ditch tackles, are in vogue.

Burnley, Watford and Norwich have been the worst teams all season, comfortably .. Then a tier up Us, Villa, Southampton, Newcastle and Everton..
1 - Revie
2 - Bielsa
3 - Wilkinson

One way of looking at it is where do Villa have the best chance of getting points from?
Burnley or City?

Remember it is £2.2M per league place.

Villa potentially have 4 places to climb. Not bad coin to aim for.

Understand that William. I mainly bet on golf and have paid for a fair few things doing that, rarely bet on anything else bar the big race meetings. And virtually never on football. I know there’s a lot of criticism aimed at the industry, and rightly so but it does wind me up that a lot of the general public who like a flutter & a pint are constantly reminded of the ills of their vices but you can eat as many burgers as you like. The food industry is out of control.
Rant over :)

Yeah I food industry is another problem, though after 15 burgers my body tells me to stop, whereas with a credit card in my hand I can plunge my family into a world of debt due to my lack of regulation.

Addiction eh?

Rant over x2 :)

2.2m per league place means very little to the players, but much more to the owners.

:) you think you’ve got me there eh :) I worked for a top consultant from the NHS and asked what is the biggest and most costliest problem for his “industry”. Sugar. That was all he said. It’s cost billions. But I agree some of the stories of bookmaker greed are shocking

True but I am clutching at straws here trying to convince myself that Villa are in the game this Thursday and you are not helping :roflmao:

I think in this day and age, with huge money riding on every result, tv, betting etc. a club "throwing" a fixture or even taking it easy would be very difficult to pass off. The fans would go crazy. Plus it's not like Gerrard can relax, he needs good results, it hasn't been a spectacular success so far, he needs every point and position.

MOTD made Rodrigo look good, it only showed one of his many errors and how idle he is, also idle Harrison, no doubt we’ll still have one of them next season.
A lot of us have been shouting from the rooftops for JG to have more minutes, I would say if he had more game time we would be safe by now, it’s quite bewildering really the way we have used him, or rather, not used him.
I thought it pathetic of those fans singing for Bielsa , if you really feel that way about him f**k off to Argentina with him, he won’t be back, ever, and he’s the main reason we’re in this situation, idiots.
A Pontus own goal on Sunday would be nice.

On a similar theme to the Gerrard/Burnley/Liverpool situation, Eddie Howe might take it easy on Burnley, he was their manager for a season or so.
Did he go cos he was homesick or something?

I’d call nonsense at this theory, it’s their last home game of the season and Gerrard manages Aston Villa which is where his loyalty will lie he will want a good finish - they will put a strong team out. whether or not they still win is another matter as they don’t have a great home record.

There was discussion on Radio 5 Live on Sunday about players being 'on the beach' for the last game and in particular Newcastle players.
The show host stated that the players will be looking to impress Eddie Howe so they are retained for next season and the last thing they will do is take it easy.
I hope he's correct.

Really stretching this now, maybe Charlie Taylor will suddenly remember he owes Leeds and stick a few own goals in or Gary Mac will knock out Mike Jackson before kick off. Worse still Chris woods head might explode after getting so utterly confused by where his loyalty lies

If Chris Wood scores the goal that sends Burnley down he would instantly become a hero in Leeds.
Last day games tend to throw up scenarios such as this.

Think 64 mentioned his plan for the last day of the season a couple weeks ago. Should Thursdays results go our way is anyone else considering getting away from it all and looking at the scores once it’s all over? Must admit I’m tempted but that moment when you check the scores would be such a concentrated hit of stress and anticipation it could be worse than watching it.

It was tongue in cheek 😉

The last line was a genuine question though.
