    Less than 1% chance of relegation, when was the last time we had that? :)

    The stats are worked out based on performance in previous seasons. As our last season was relegation it should be weighted against us on that, even though we were in a higher league. Pretty stupid methodology if you ask me.

    would trust bookies more than sky. Not bothered what happens Saturday but the 3 games after that are critical and after them chances of autos/play offs/missing out could look quite a bit clearer

    Not sure how we can be more likely to win the league and finish in the top 3 than Newport but less likely to finish in top 7?!? I call bullshit...

    Anyway have they not seen my graphs!
