    We need these teams playing top 6 sides, where their average points will be below 1 per game.
    But a surprise win against a top 6 and it breeds confidence that can take sides on a run. Look at who Swansea have been beating! The 1-0 win at home to Liverpool seemed to kick-start everything.

      It's alright for some.
      They have international finance passionately committed to their club, even in China.

      Mr Bloom has all that, and he's willing to share some of the info if you deposit £1m.

      Ah yes, Mr Bloom with his statistical office up in Camden! He's the man for the job!
      Not anymore he doesn't (sort of).

      Perhaps at the behest of the PL or FA, Tony Bloom (and all of his associates on the Albion board - Mark Sugarman, etc) have all stepped away from Star Lizard Consultancy recently. Bloom no longer has any stake in it - but remains a Star Lizard customer.

      Including 4 out of the next 5.

      Yet are still. 4/1 or even 5/1 to be relegated. Am I missing something here. They look nailed on to me.
      Shit never sticks to them for some reason, take the value and have a bet.

      The next round of premier league matches are as follows:
      Leicester v Stoke
      Bournemouth v Newcastle
      Brighton v Swansea
      Burnley v Southampton
      Liverpool v West Ham
      West Brom v Huddersfield
      Watford V Everton
      Leicester, Brighton, Burnley, Liverpool, and Everton wins would suit us.
      Draws between Bournemouth v Newcastle and West Brom v Huddersfield though a west brom win wouldn't be too disastrous either.
      All quite feasible!
      Cutting WBA adrift would mean 2 from 10 rather than 3 from 11 so WBA should lose.

      Im not looking at points or fixtures. Top teams may not have anything to play for at end of season. Im looking at injury lists and possible basket cases, so Palace, Stains and beginning to look like Brom.
      A sudden managerial flounce may help, I wouldn't shed any tears if Moyes left and wet spam tanked.

      Well now that's interesting.

      Presumably the fact that just under half the teams in the Premier League have prime shirt sponsorship deals with online gambling firms (Newcastle, West Ham, Palace, Everton, Stoke, Burnley, Swansea, Bournemouth and Huddersfield, for the record) isn't an issue then.
      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      I don't know for a fact that there was any such pressure that forced Bloom to cut those ties. Just speculating as to the reason.

      Sure a relegation rival might get a result against a top 6 side, but if they all play each other they will be averaging over a point a game each, that's a certainty, and not good news for us. I've been expecting our required total to be 36 or 37 points, but now I'm beginning to think we'll need nearer 40.

      I also don't know, but I'd guess that if Bloom didn't want to sell his part then it would take more than just a bit of pressure. There'd need to be a legal reason, and I'm not sure there is.

      Ah righto

      I did spy, when I went to check the numbers for that stat, that our shirt sponsorship deal with Amex is, jointly with Huddersfield, by some distance the lowest value shirt deal in the Premier League.

      Even Bournemouth are getting about three times as much as we are (ours is supposedly £1.5m per season) for the space on the front of their shirts. I wonder when our existing agreement is due for renewal.
