Premiership Projections

I found a nice little tool on the BBC website this afternoon.

It allows you to predict every result in the Premiership from now until the end of the season, and then update the league table to reflect your predictions. If you have 10 minutes spare then it's definitely worth doing.

For some reason the table I've ended up with still doesn't show as being entirely complete, (Bolton have only played 36 games for example) but I have checked through all of the boxes and I definitely haven't missed out any of the results, so perhaps the BBC haven't taken into account some of the fixtures which have been moved to Sunday or Monday for TV coverage, or maybe there are a couple of fixtures still TBA.

My table shows that the last day saw West Brom once again defy the odds and perform another last gasp escape from relegation. Their 0-0 draw away at Goodison Park mean that they edge out of the bottom three at the expense of Midlands rival and all round 'massive club' Birmingham City, whose 2-0 defeat at The Reebok consigns them to CCC, and probably Steve Bruce to the sack.

Chelsea walked away with the title, Arsenal nipped in to take the final Champions League place, while Tottenham managed to book themselves a slot in next seasons UEFA Cup. My table shows that West Ham also need to dust off their passports, but bear in mind that Bolton still have an inexplicable 2 games in hand. Lets just say that they win one and lose one, thus leapfrogging The Hammers into Europe.

As for Charlton, 15 points from our final 10 games see us finishing in 11th place, 2 places above where we currently sit in the real League Table. Hopefully, the reason that we lost 3-0 at Old Trafford on the final day was because we rested all of our best players in preparation for next weeks FA Cup Final...

Here’s the link to the Prediction page. Give it a go, and feel free to add a comment below detailing where Charlton finished in your own final League Table.
