Hoping Villa come down, a couple of decent games for next season with hopefully full away followings and good atmosphere. Cant think of 3 more dull teams to be relegated than Norwich, Watford and Bournemouth
Can see it now, 'Blues fan' Troy Deeney being plastered all over MoTD tonight as he scores a late goal at the Emirates which will condemn 'The Villa' to Champo football next season & save the Hornets, probably on a goal difference technicality!
Villa go to West Ham Watford go to Arsenal Bournemouth go to Everton
For what it's worth I would say it's highly unlikely Villa will go down and we will be joined in 7 weeks time by Watford, Bournemouth and of course Norwich.
I don’t know what ‘highly unlikely‘ is any more. A few days ago, Forest were odds on favourites to make the play-offs and we all know what happened there.
I think Moyes will have his players fighting for thier place at WHU next year. He is a good motivator. I don’t think this is a shoe-in at all for Villa.
In the meantime, Watford are a good scrapping side, they are up against Arsenal who have been a bit patchy and none of their players will want to risk injury before the FA Cup final. If Watford go into the match leaving the boot in early on with a few elbows here and There, I suspect Arsenal could go missing.
Of all those three, I think Bournemouth v Everton is hardest to call.
On the whole, I suspect Watford will beat the drop.

I have a sneaky feeling that Villa and Bournemouth will be joining Norwich in the Championship next season.... With Watford pulling off a good result at the Arse today, while the best the other two can muster up are draws!!!

I would rather Villa stay up as they would be a contender to go straight back up & could hinder us. The other 3 do not worry me at all & at least one of them could fall again into league 1 Bournemouth hopefully.
