Can’t stop staring at this list fixtures.....

 

I see 17 points - and that’s being generous in our fixtures against Villa/Forest which I think will be tough with a bare thin 11 like we have

 

Blackburn W

Stoke D

Villa W

Forest W

Leeds L

Norwich L

Bristol W

Preston D

QPR W

 

Don’t think that will get us in with the games in hand others have around

I just can’t see it. 

 

If we had 2 or 3 more points on the board, maybe. But I think it’s a bit too much. It’s still exciting though. 

 

Where we could be if we didn’t have Jos in charge and we played our best players and a settled back four eh.

Quite a messy fixture list that. 

 

Definitely need everything to go in our favour.

Not sure how the last 9/10 are for others - but not everyone will keep winning.....

Just take one game at a time, be thankful we’re not watching the utter dross we were earlier in the season anymore and let’s see where it takes us.

I can see us getting results at Leeds and Norwich - neither are world beaters.

We need fortress Hillsborough to rock for the home games. It's a massive April. 

 

I wouldnt be so quick to write us off. Even with game in hand 3 points difference is nothing at this stage of the season. Ask the pigs

Win the lot. Play pigs in the play offs and knock them out and laugh our b0llox off as Sean Bean leads a march to parliament in protest at the play offs being unfair

Our form is wrong we have won 3 and drawn 3 of last 6. we are on 12 points. A far better indication is to look over performance since Jos left 15 games 28 points. It shows we are a decent team and on a good run Think you will find few are better than us over this period.

Our main threats imho

Bristol C
Forest
Villa

All have a game in hand on us. But all 3 have to come to Hillsborough.

 

Think it's wide open mesen, will deffo go to the last game for 6th spot

To be honest I've fell foul of trusting the internet!

I'm apportioning equal blame to Costellos chutney too.

We are not gonna get 9 points from villa forest and Bristol . Due to the fixtures we will fall short . Nobody can deny the impact Bruce has had though . It’s actually worth turning up these days

I said this before and I will say it again, we have a chance now. We had no chance under Jos. Blackburn is now a mammoth game, 3 points with the momentum going into the international break and Derby + Bristol not playing either we could go into the break level on points with the playoffs never mind 4 or 5 behind!!! Blackburn is huge!!!

I think you have to drag Middlesborough into this.  They still have games against Preston, Villa, Norwich, Bristol, Hull, Stoke and Forest.  The fans up there aren't all that happy at the moment, they lost to Brentford at the weekend and another bad result or two and they could implode.

 

Bristol have Blunts, Middlesborough, West Brom, Villa, Us, Derby and Hull.

 

Everybody is playing everybody.  No team is going to go unbeaten till the end of the season.  We need to win our home games and we wont be far off. 

 

I'll say one other thing, its a 6-7 team mini league from now until end of the season.  I'd take Bruce over Johnson, Lampard, O'Neill (who's had his head up his hole for the last god knows how many years managing Ireland), Smith, Adkins and Monk and Neil. It'll even be interesting to see how L##ds and Norwich get on toward the end of the season, pressure is a funny thing. 

 

Put the shoe on the other foot, if you were any one of those teams, looking at your prospects of making the play offs and you look at the teams around you.  The one that makes you nervous is Sheffield Wednesday, in excellent form, conceding little, with experienced players who have been there before and a manager who has been promoted out of this league 4 times and missed out last year by 90 mins.

 

Stay positive....embrace it...its way better than scrapping against relegation or mid table obscurity.
