Not just the Huddersfield game but Bristol City on the final day too. We could really have done with them needing something themseves but they'll be long safe by then.

Plus if Huddersfield get something out of their midweek game with Wolves, they will be safely in the play offs by the time they go to Big Club.

Bugger, just seen that they play on Tuesday. Couple of days extra rest for Big Club.

If we won both our final games I honestly think QPR would go as I can't see them getting another point. They're woeful. Can we get two wins on the trot? Not a chance.

We need to forget about Forest; they'll be safe.

If we manage to sneak ahead of Birmingham and just need to better their result in the final game, would you really trust our lot to do that? I wouldn't 

I am convinced that we will lose at Brentford.

We must beat Villa .... and hope.

Well, if we beat Villa and Forest lose to QPR it's all to play for again on the last day. If forest win and we win then QPR are back in it. They have a  more difficult last fixture than us. Two wins and we're staying up. Tony will play 6-4-0.

We just have to hope Brum only get a couple more points max and we can scab a win and a draw.

Belt up, put your helmet on. It's going to be a bumpy ride.

Well part 1 of keep Blackburn up send Small Heath down went to plan...

Now make sure you do your part when we come to Ewood, plenty in the away end will be more than happy to see you get 3 points.

Our season ended today.

Best of luck, most Villa fans I know want you to stop up even more so with Blues thing.

Is there any chance your keeper can chuck one in his net for us? We struggle with that.

A toast to Gabby.

Reckon Brum will win again this season?

Yeah, concerns me that. A week or two ago I wrote that Big Club had the difficult run-in because all 4 games had something resting on them. Since then, their last 2  opponents have nothing to play for.

We need 4 points minimum but that would not necessarily be enough.

Lets look at our likely partners in relegation - Wigan and Rotherham. Will relegation be a disaster for them? Probably not. Both clubs know League One, both have been there recently, both have owners and boards that understand the league and know how to deal with it. Both have squads of players that will be able to adjust to that level on wages that are probably manageable at that level. I fully expect both will be at least pushing for the play-offs next season.

Will we have a plan? Senior reckons he does, but if/when we go down will we see action or inertia? 

Our finances are shot at. Our squad is a joke, a mixture of loans, crocks and short term deals. The few with any value the club will actively attempt to sell rather than try to keep for a promotion push. Its obvious that their intention is to use the U23s to fill up the first team squad, both to try and boost player values ahead of another batch of sales and also to avoid having to pay any transfer fees 

It pains me but I'll be expecting back to back relegations.

I bet Venkys, Senior and Cheston are crapping themselves at the possibility of us staying up. There is no way we could compete in the Championship without money being spent and there is none to spend.

We are a League One club now in all but name.

I wouldn't be relying on us to step up. Any chance ye could step down a bit more?

Oooh we're halfway there,

play two up top

and we'll make it I swear

Tony used to play on the docks. 

Stokesy's been on strike, he's down on his luck with love. With love.

Conor dreams of running away. He plays on the right sometimes. Raya is Ok. Ok.

Fill that end, get your Venky's out banners together and roar us to Victory. If you can give us the 3 points and Brum lose, we will love Villa forever.

Tony's says we gotta hold on to what we've got,

Goal difference doesn't matter and it didn't at Cov,

Villa is a tenner and that's a lot for us

When we don't have a shot.

(repeat chorus)

Our fans will be in fancy dress and past caring about this season... if anything they will probably cheering you on rather than pushing our lot on.

It's a great fixture for you to have at this stage.

Wouldnt be surprised if our players are on the beach.

We will fill it (we have just about every away end this season), we will be in fancy dress and likely cheering you on. Oh and I have a Venky banner already....

Excellent, fair play to you and I am sure plenty on here and in the ground on Saturday will applaud you for it. Thanks for the Venky's out banner, anything highlighting that will be really appreciated.
