Getting pointlessly ahead of ourselves but..

Recommended Posts

We could go into the last day knowing that a win against the team we don't want to play in the playoffs means we will play against the team we don't want to play in the playoffs.

 

And that we will play them three games in a row. Bizarre

Its a good point.

 

If we could engineer it, I would rather play anyone else over 2 legs.

 

Maximise our chances against a team not in form almost as good as us.

More likely, it could be  a nice situation where we know that beating them actually AVOIDS them by keeping us 4th or 5th and them 6th. In which case, I think we should rest selectively, and try to beat them

 

(Again, all ahead of ourselves, I know)

Who do we not want in the playoffs? 

 

Reading? They've taken 6 points off us this season

Another bizarre thought... If we don't win next week, I think we actually want Fulham to WIN?

 

Much better chance of beating a safe Fulham on last day, than getting a point against a Fulham side that needs to win?

I hope we do play Fulham in the semis and with the final it would give our players two trips to London cos as we heard this week players wanna play in the south.

In these situations I reckon we'd be better off just playing to win seeing how other results pan out and that is that! None of this "acting god" rounduns.

 

Also I thought your post was going to be something like..  "getting pointlessly ahead of ourselves but... next year when we're 2-0 up away at Chelsea, do we bring Nuhiu on with 15 left or FF to scare Cahill even more"

Ideal scenario. 

 

We're secure and can play a weakened side. 

 

Fulham still need to win. 

 

Our weakened side kick lumps out of Fulham and injure their better players. 

 

Leeds then finish 7th. 

I like this idea

 

Get Matias sent off after injuring Martin

 

Get McGugan sent off for injuring aluko

 

Get Buckley sent of for injuring Cairney 

 

lol

Why wouldn't we want to play Fulham? They play decent attacking football - we tend to play better against those sides than struggling to break down boring timewasters like Reading.

It doesn't matter who you play in the playoffs; you have to beat whoever is in front of you...
