Run in table update - 3rd April

Recommended Posts



We need to beat Villa well, their GD is an extra point, and with 3 of the bottom 4 to play.

If they catch one of Wigan/Millwall/Rotherham on a bad day, goals galore.

Goal difference could really be the decider I think and we have work to do.

We really do have to win the next two fixtures. If so, it's on.

Win the next 2 and it's run the bath time, otherwise, forget it.

Aye, 2 games coming up that need to be a 6 point haul. We dropped 2 points v Stoke, bloody offside decision that could have gone for us. It's now crunch time though. Let's just go for it, 100% positivity from everyone at the games and 100%effort from every player. Leave it all out there as they say. We might have a bit of luck here and there too which happens when teams are positive.

We've probably got the hardest run in of them all and we'll have a large affect on top 6 placings.

So destiny in our own hands I guess.

Come on Wednesday.

We've gone on 7 game winnining streaks around this stage of the season before. They'll be under just as much pressure as us.

 

It's exciting either way and full of optimism for next season whatever may be

Great update @cookeh

 

Whilst I bow to the spreadsheet calculations, I cannot see Bristol City getting 75 points (irrespective of last nights result).  I’m still going to go that 71 points gets us 6th.  Whether we get 71 points is another matter, but we will have a much clearer picture this time next week.

Too much to do IMHO...........hope i am wrong but i think we will finish around 9th with around 70 pts

 

at a guess

 

1st. Norwich 94 pts

2nd. Leeds 91 pts

 

3rd WBA 89 pts

4th blunts 87 pts

5th Villa 77 pts

6th Derby 73 pts

 

fancy WBA to finish very strongly.

West Brom and the Blunts are irrelevant to us tbh. They're both safely in the playoffs, worst case for them.
I should probably take WBA off the sheet, there's really only 2 spots in play with 7 teams clamouring for them.

 

I think it's doable, tho ofc the Villa game has now become massive. Draws will slowly kill our chances.
I guess the worry is that even if we do make it, we've had such a hard run in that fatigue might be an issue.
A depleted squad with 3 more tough games to play after the coming 6  fixtures.. that's a big ask for any side.

Looking at West broms fixtures, they could still get 2nd.

This is a really good point that shouldn't be overlooked. The run-in will be exciting (unless we completely tank our next couple of fixtures), yes the odds are fairly heavily stacked against us, but to even be in with a sniff after the bulk of this campaign is truly remarkable.

 

Bodes very well for next season, even with the looming potential for some fairly major playing staff outgoings. There's nobody terrifying coming down either, by the looks of it. Lots for us to feel positive about, whatever the next three weeks bring.

I dont think how we end this season will have any bearing on how we perform next season (assuming we dont go up) because....

1. We finished like a house on fire last year...and look what happened.

2. This team is unlikely to look anything like next years due to the out of contract and loan players currently involved.

Nothing to do with us in the championship but its even closer at the bottom of league 1 !! 7 points separate 12 teams !

We need to not lose again this season win the home games and get something out of the away games. 

 

I just keep looking at the 3 games against the bottom 5 that we drew as 6 points lost.

 

I think 70 points is going to be enough with everyone playing each other though.

I think West Brom will get 2nd and whoever finishes 5th or 6th will get promoted as Leeds and United will be mentally and physically spent.

On the flip side some of our play-off rivals have lost to relegation threatened teams. The points we gained in these fixtures will be invaluable come the end of the season.
