Aston Villa to get relegated - 14/1

Just lost their main goalscorer for the rest of the season and another good striker in Keane so theyl be struggling for goals now. Alrite they have a decent cushion (8 points) from the relegation zone and have ok fixtures coming up too but under McLeish (who brought local rivals Birmingham down last year) theyve been poor enough.

Its probably a longshot but if they dont pick up any points in the next 3, they have a tough run til the end of the season. And at this stage of the season, there seems to be always one surprisng team who gets caught in the mix..

Blackburn away up next for them who, in Yakubu, have a striker that's terrorised every team in the league this season. Villa are dour as it is under McLeish with a striker so can imagine them sitting back for a miserable draw without one. Odds surely in Blackburns favour & a win would put just 5 points between the 2 sides.

Wolves should avail of the 'honeymoon period' so between QPR & Villa for me, in the event of a morale-boosting win for Blackburn on Saturday (particularly as they've the easier run-in). Definitely worth a tenner.

Dunne also out for a while. Small stakes, could happen.

It should be a lot longer than 14\1 now.

If they beat bolton at home next week it should be 100\1.

There are at least five teams in that league that are a lot worse than aston villa

You'd have got more satisfaction wiping your hole with a tenner.

You cant tell me that Villa are in the worst three teams in that league. Wigan are as good as down and QPR cant win a game to save their lives at the minutes. Wolves made the biggest mistake of the season sacking mick mccarthy

There was never a chance they'd get relegated and a win at home to Bolton would make relegation almost impossible

Wolves are down. So its five teams for 2 spots. If Villa manage to beat Bolton at home they'll be fine.

I'll still be more than surprised if they manage to end up in the bottom three at the end of the season.

if villa do go down they absolutely deserve it, they only need a few wins to stay up.

even if they stay up they need a whole sale clear out at the club next season.

Maybe McLeish will get the Liverpool job if he takes Villa down
