Next Three games

Recommended Posts

There are two away and one home game in our next Three league games that take us to the point last season when it all went downhill after game 11. Three points from these three games will see us level with last term so there is the challenge for us to get ahead. We would hope that the three to equal last season will come from the home game against Wigan so anything of a return from the away games at Middlesbrough and Hull should see us in the top 6.

 

It was a strange game yesterday even putting aside the poor refereeing performance and the theatrics of the Fulham players both of which were pathetic. We looked both comfortable and uncomfortable in equal measure. There is no doubting Fulham's skills and passing ability.  There were times when it looked as though we were going under in a big way but we somehow got a foot in at the death to make the clearance. On the other hand we looked incisive and threatening on the break and could easily have scored a few goals. In the end getting the draw was probably no more than we deserved. Fulham didn't deserve the win for their play acting alone. If Fulham didn't have that in their game they would be a force to be reckoned with. With it in their game they will end up mid table wondering why a team with so many talented footballers didn't do better.

Boro - 0-1

Ull - 2-2

Wigan - 3-1

 

7 from 9, not a bad return.

Two very winnable games, we might get lucky against Boro too...

Teams challenging for top 6 should be expecting to win all 3 

 

All  3 are average but sadly so are we

I keep reading on here about what will get us in the top 6. Just don’t get it. We are absolutely nailed on to finish mid table.

Wigan W 1-0

Brentford L 0-1

 

Hull home games

 

Wigan D 2-2

Foolishly, and I should know better, I really fancy us for no less than six points.

One game at a time, try and stay with the pack going into January. Let's try and get past Everton first.

We’re a mid table side, so WDL in no particular order sounds about right

lets hope Darren Randolph isn't in goal for Boro, always has a cracking game against us.

I wouldn't try and predict anything in this division It would be no surprised if we lost or won all 3 …...if we can come out with 5 points i'd be well happy

I expect Monk will set us up to crush the life out of Boro and Hull.  I'm hoping we'll be a bit more expansive against Wigan.  Think we'll be unbeaten and with a bit of luck looking at a 7 to 9 point haul from the 3 games.

Thats how I see it at the moment. I expect an upper mid table finish. 10-12th. Defensive shape is currently very good but that midfield is simply not performing to a level anywhere near a top 6 finish.

3 points is no good what so ever.

 

We need to have the mindset we are going to dominate and win all 3, but 7 points is the minimum if we are going to be serious about top 6 come the end of the season.

He's a very good keeper so I imagine he has a good game against most teams

All 3 are winnable but at the same time we could quite easily lose all 3. 4 points I reckon - win, lose and a draw.
