how come they are mathematically relegated when they can still catch villla?(unlikely)

is it to do with fixtures?

1 to 18 of 18

because on the last day of the season Wigan play Villa, and if you work out the possible results of that game then you'll see that QPR and Reading will still be in the bottom 3 whatever the result

Is there a big goal difference?

thanks bibblebub
you're welcome
As QPR and Villa currently have the same goal difference, it does seem mathematically possible for QPR to escape the drop.

Assuming Villa lose their four remaining games and QPR were to win their remaining three games, then they would be level on points with 34. And goal difference would then be in favour of QPR.

Or am I wrong?

Reading could escape too, or am I wrong again?
You are wrong, sir prize.
The most points either can get is 34
If Villa beat Wigan Villa will have 37 so Reading and QPR can't catch them.
If wigan win they'll have 35 so Reading and QPR can't catch them.
If Wigan and Villa draw Villa will have 35 so reading and QPR can't catch them
Both Reading and QPR can only get a maximum of 34 points.

If neither Wigan nor Villa get any points before the last day then Wigan will be on 35 pts if they win that last game otherwise Villa will have 35 or 37 points.
(should have typed that a bit quicker)
Well there ya go. I forgot little ole Wigan.

Thanks folks.

and im sorry tony and anyone who knows me i hope you lose.

sorry but you sent us down a few years ago

on the other side i think it should be wigan based on pl history.
Personally, I'd like to thank both QPR and Reading, as well as Chelsea, Swansea, Arsenal and ManU, for all scoring the right number of goals today to let me win a bet on their results.

did you go for a under 2.5 goal accumulator ?
nothing too specific, just the treble of Chelsea to win and the other 2 games to be draws, giving odds of 14.71/1
Sorry me still confuse - surely if either ONE from QPR or Reading can get 34pts to catch Villa(ignoring the 6-1 sunderland result) or Wigan -then how can BOTH be relegated? as Wigan could end up lose all 4 and with only 32 pts?
Tali, as it stands, both Reading and QPR have three games left and can get to 34 points, as you said, Wigan have four games left. Their maximum points total could be 44. Newcastle have 37 points (Along with Aston Villa and Sunderland) and are the first team outside the relegation zone. Therefore, Reading and QPR can't overtake Newcastle and get out of the relegation zone. Wigan currently occupy the last place in the relegation zone
