It’s way too much ground to make up.

 

If Eurotache had eked out 3 or 4 more points we’d be in with a shout.

 

Those dropped points against West Brom both home and away could have given us a bit of hope.

If we finish top half then we’ve done well. Then let Bruce clear out the deadwood.

I won't be putting a bet on us because it IS an outrageous proposal. BUT, Derby and Bristol City are in 6th and 7th on 47 points. Both could (could) lose on Saturday and would remain in their positions. IF we beat Reading we'll be 6 points away . Doesn't look so outrageous then!

Look at the places / points closely. Swansea to Birmingham. 6 places. 2 points. We can win a few this month. All those teams can't win as well. Some must meet each other, or play a top team. We don't.

Totally agree mate.Chaos principle. So could work for or against us, equally. Could it not?

Our goal difference is terrible.

 

we need at least 11 wins & 2/3 draws from our remaining 17 games.....

We still have to play some teams above us like Bristol City and Derby so if we won those games, the gap to make up on them would be 6 points not 9.

 

I reckon if we were to win the next 5 against lower positioned teams, then it would become very interesting for a while

Winning 3 or 4 games on the spin is not entirely unrealistic in this league. Even for us. Manage that and it suddenly doesn’t look too far off.

 

Id like to think the players will be going into the next few games at least believing the playoffs are possible. 

 

You just never know. Forestieri back playing and seemingly in the mood is huge.

Two more wins on the bounce and we will be right up there.

Exactly, if we were to win 5 games which includes our game in hand over some teams, you’d expect the gap to the playoffs to reduce, maybe as low as 4-5 points. Then with 13 games to go, anything is possible 

 

now watch us mess up against Reading

Look at Bristol’s run, they were down around us in the league and they’ve soared up the table

 

We just need to go out, enjoy football and be an attacking threat - nothing to lose

It's great to see the positivity flooding back to the club and long may it continue. I joined OT as the bad times were really starting to roll and now things are on the up.

 

But can I make a plea that if or when (delete as applicable) we don't make the play-offs, we don't have a meltdown on here.

 

Up the Owls.

We'll put a run together,  make it to Wembley then lose to a 98th minute Nuhui own goal after missing 3 penalties. 

 

It's the Wednesday way
