Where will we set our magic number? 40 points and Premier League safety? i.e. a minimum of 3 clubs can't finish above us; 55 and good chance of being in Europa again? i.e. 13 clubs will finish below us.

Set it at forty: four-zero. That is the only target to contemplate for now!

I think it'll take a record number of points to stay up this season.

When the magic number for a team hits zero, they can’t mathematically overtake us in the league. 3 teams do that, and we stay in the Premier League. Easy.

New season should be here
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

For some reason the Sky Sports table I was using wouldn't work any more so I'm now using the Guardian's table. If it doesn't seem to be updating let me know and I'll find another to use.

As per last season I'm ignoring goal difference so the magic number is the absolute number of points required to overtake us (i.e. to be one point ahead of us).

I've hidden the stuff based on form for the moment, will show that when we've played some more games.
