    Bloodyhell, that is pretty hard marking, Stoke are going to get 6 points from 11 games, Southampton 2, and West Brom 4!

    Southampton are just 1 point below 1ppg to this point, but are going to be P11 W0 D2 L9...harsh. But hopefully true.
    Whilst I agree with you, a fair few sides have had runs of 8-10 games without a win this season, including us. Burnley are on such a run right now.

    The chances are at least one side is going to have a long barren spell at a crucial time.

      Well at least we know that only 2 of West Brom, Palace, Swansea and Stoke can win on the last day.
      We also know some of them will get points, and we probably won't. #glassempty

      So get at least 2 points clear of that lot, and 4 ahead of someone else before the last day - and happy days.
      That would lovely. 2 points ahead of 5 teams however, is a fair bit to ask.

      Personally I think 33 will keep a side up, all be it on goal difference.

      Is that a joke? If not, how did you work that out?
      I don't know if what SF posted is true but since the PL went to 20 clubs (95/96 season) getting 37 points would have kept you up in 15 of the 22 seasons. The only exceptions being

      95/96 39 pts
      96/97 41 pts
      97/98 40 pts
      02/03 43 pts
      06/07 38 pts
      10/11 40 pts
      15/16 38 pts

      The average number of points required to stay up over those 22 seasons (ie 1 more point than the team finishing 18th) is 36.77

      38.

      3 wins from:
      Swansea
      Arsenal
      Huddersfield
      Leicester
      Man Utd
      or
      Palace

      And a draw.

      Should do it.

      I urge you to give the predictor a go, takes about 15 mins. Be honest about it and give the lowly teams the benefit of a win here or there. I was surprised that 36 points had us 13th
      I've done it a few times to 37 games. Latest before we drew 1-1 with Stoke but I had that down for a 1-1 draw anyway and I had Huddersfield to win 3-1.

      Huddersfield Town 15:00 Arsenal
      Liverpool 15:00 Brighton & Hove Albion
      Manchester United 15:00 Watford
      Newcastle United 15:00 Chelsea

      On the predictor I had us finishing 15th on 37 points. Going down: Stoke (31) Southampton (28) West Brom (24)
      Same here except 38 points scored with 33 enough to survive, so comfortably safe before likely defeat at Anfield.

      On the predictor I had us 16th on 37 with Stoke, Swansea and WBA going down.

      I still want us taking 38, I think we're safe on 38.

      Judging patterns of form so far this season, I think All About Me Albion will go down rock bottom with a whimper on 31/32 points and will not emerge from the drop zone for the rest of the season, 19th will be within 33-35 points and will go down second to last gameweek after being in and out of the drop zone several times but always looking like a candidate, and 18th will go on the last day with 36/37 points, kicking and screaming, after possibly being in the driving seat and looking like they might be safe but nosediving at the wrong point in the season. So I think 38 points or 37 with a strong goal difference will be the figure we need (the latter is unlikely as we don't score enough goals). Whether 38 can be achieved remains to be seen, 10 points needed. Three wins and a draw or two wins and four draws, the latter of which I see as being the scenario we are more likely to have.
