Latest Relegation Odds

An Entertaining Side Dish...

I mentioned a few weeks ago that "...misery for Sunderland can never be more than an entertaining side dish compared to the joy of a Toon victory."

That remains true, but now that we've guaranteed our Premier League survival it's nice to be able to relax and enjoy the 'entertaining side dish' of the battle for the final relegation spot.

Ladbrokes currently have the relegation battle priced as follows:

Wigan - 1/25
Sunderland - 14/1
Aston Villa - 25/1

Given that Wigan would need to beat Arsenal and Aston Villa, it does seem a long shot that Sunderland will be relegated.  However, football can be an unpredictable game at times, and Wigan showed against Man City that they're capable of a result against the bigger clubs.

Anyway, as I say, the joy of a Toon victory will always come first, so looking forward to the weekend it'll be interesting to see if Alan Pardew plays a more attacking game against Arsenal now that we've ensured our Premier League status, but in the mean time tonight I'll be following the Arsenal versus Wigan match with added interest.
