Noticed in all excitement there been no update but what a roll!

Btw here my contribution on last season points and stats comparison maybe 
7 points down from 17/18 but the football and the 8 winning is more than something else and more exhilarating performances to compare than last season !

Aston Villa 42 matches
11 more goals scored
18 more goals conceded
4 less matches won
5 more matches drawn
1 less defeat

2017-2018 / 2018-19
won 22   /won 18   
draw 10/ draw 15   
lost10/9
Goals 66/77
Conceded 40/58

As things stand, if the top 6 all carry on accumulating points at the current rate 6th place would be Bristol City on 73-74 points. That would mean we'd need 26 points from the 33 available and possibly to improve our goal difference compared to them (we're both +8 currently). that makes 8 wins the absolute minimum requirement. To start with winning the next 3 (blues, forest and boro) would be massive because they're all '6 pointers'. Get those and then add a win over Bristol City in April and, along with another couple of wins, we'd be right back up there going into Easter.


Absolutely superb awareness to situation ! 8 wins no worries ?! (Apart from that Wednesday match all deserved!)

We haven't actually "gained" any points since the last update, as we won all the equivalent games last year, too.

However, we have some wriggle-room now as we only got one point from Bolton away and Millwall at home last season... good chance to gain some points.

Thanks!
Funny that word or words? Wriggle room !
It actually makes me feel uncomfortable! Though the meaning is to say we have some comfort space . The equivalent would be what those lesser clubs would say 'its a free hit' when they play they almighty Dean Smith Aston villa.

I posted that after the Derby game so 1 more meets my minimum for us to make the playoffs and I'll stand by that. Beat Bolton and we've got 1 foot in the play offs, follow that with a win against Millwall and we'll be in with 2 games to go, which would be a truly amazing turnaround from where we were before the Derby game.

Updated and I'm not even at work, you lucky people!

Three points gained today. Well, yesterday, I suppose.
