Think the first 4 could go either way tbh. It's the Championship innit. A lucky bounce, a defender switches off, a great strike. Very fine margins in this league.

Difficult to predict outcome in most games in this league, who would have thought Hull would thump Preston 4-0 then a few days later lose 3-1 to Barnsley. 

 

21 points to play for in those 7 games, a return of 14 points would be decent.

A lot of these games are against playoff rivals so good chance to close the gap.

Is it wrong that I’m a looking where we are with minus 15 points? Can’t help but look at the relegation situation

The cloud of a points deduction which hangs over us is in danger of killing off any hope of play offs. I can't be the only one who is finding it increasingly difficult to be optimistic in threads like these while the EFL mandarins shuffle with our club's future.

When we predicted the November games on this site I said 8 points and we only got 5 points. 
 

So I will predict 21 points this time so we can get 18 points. You’re welcome everybody

Looks like a fairly difficult run of games to me.

 

Chuffed there are 7 games in 23 days though.

I was saying to my dad yesterday that nobody has really given us a good hiding yet, even the defeats have been by fine margins

 

QPR. Winning at half time, second half collapse

 

Hull. Should have had a pen which would have been 1-1

 

Millwall. Battered their 10 men for an hour , couldn’t get the goal

 

Blackburn. Best not to speak about that one

 

WBA. Played well and got done at the end

 

Cardiff, Swansea and Birmingham should have all been beaten too

 

Could easily be sitting here with another 15 points, and sat top of the league

I think we have to take 1 game at a time.

 

The Championship is such a difficult league to call, anyone can beat anyone on their day.

 

I’m just looking ahead to Brentford and that’s as far as it goes right now.

Our fixtures to 1st Jan. Seven games in 23 days.

 

BRENTFORD

Derby

Forest 

BRISTOL C

Stoke 

CARDIFF

HULL

 

Yesterday’s strong showing and highly deserved 3 points put us two points off 5th and 3 points off 4th.

 

We’ve 4 homes and 3 aways coming up, and none of them should fill us with fear.

 

We have yet to be comfortably beaten. Not once by more than a single goal. In contrast, five of our wins have been by two or three goals.

 

Some individual naivety and lots of bad luck have taken key points off us. Hopefully Monk is working on the mental side to eradicate the former, and hopefully our desperate luck hitting the goal-frame will change very soon.

 

West Brom, Leeds and probably Fulham look a class apart. Fine - no worries. Our key rivals become  Forest, Preston, Bristol City, Brentford, Cardiff etc.... and we can finish near the top of that mini-league.

 

These 7 games come thick and fast, and can shape our season. Massive fingers crossed we come through them in great shape.

I agree completely would love us to properly in the mix to leave us with an outside chance when the FA  deduct us 12 or 15 points

If truth be told we've been showing play-off form throughout 2019. Fletcher in particular has had a fantastic year with a month still to go.

If we are going to make the Playoffs we need to be in there at the end of that 7 games.

Think DC could and should challenge strongly on the basis that the EFL standpoint is a revisionist one. The decision had already been made.
