Not had one of these for a while and I much prefer them at the other end.

HOME GAMES = UPPERCASE

away games = lower case.

Games against another team involved highlighted in yellow. If you think I’ve dropped one, let me know.

My gut feeling was always Wycombe, us and Birmingham to go down. Now I’ve see the detailed fixture list above I think that it’s Wycombe, us and Birmingham to go down.

Looking at ours if we hit some form then those last 5 games an optimistic scenario would be 10 points from 5 games against inconsistent teams who won’t have much to play for. 
 

So to have a chance we’re going to need at least 6 points, if not 8 points, from the next 4. QPR is a winnable game.. but we need to shock some of the others to have any chance. Watford looking very good now too so can’t see anything there. If we don’t pick up at least 6 from the next 4 we’re already down, maybe even mathematically so

We do, but football isn’t played on an excel spreadsheet with pretty colours.  
 

If we put in the same performance as yesterday, maybe with a couple of tweaks to the starting line up, then we can give anyone a game on our day.

Which means we’ll pick up more points than expected. I think Preston are one who could get dragged in, having the kind of run we had this time last year.

Us and wycombe beyond question are down, I think rotherham will just about survive

Nope I don't think we can...but blind optimism is fun to see

There’s certainly some winnable games there - Bristol City, QPR, Derby and Forest, but it’s a tough ask and the odds are still firmly against us unfortunately.

Right okay,  hopefully this message gets back to the team not to bother to keep improving under a new manager then.  They nearly wasted everyone’s time for a moment.

If Swansea has been rearranged for the 13th (I can’t find confirmation?) it gives us 3 games on the spin at home and 4 out of 5 home games. Time to get some momentum.

If we win our game in hand and are 3 points behind Birmingham then I'll start having a stiffy. Would be 5 points behind Derby too. 

 

If Coventry lose their game in hand as well then it might even go full stiffy.

Still think we are down tbh ...but if some how a miracle was to happen the final game v Derby could be interesting, more likely we will be down by the time we play them but could put a nail in their coffin should they also fall to bits.

 

I think Rotherham will survive ( hope they don't though) and one of Birmingham or Coventry will drop.

To be fair I think his feelings and views are shared by many, me included. Way too late to turn things around, hope I'm wrong. The improving performances should have been against the teams around us when we lost....thats what's cost us.

Not necessarily. We are playing a few mid table teams and that can only be a good thing in a run-in. Rotherham have 3 games against teams down the bottom which could be tough. I still think we will go down though.

Yes I also think we’re going down.  My comment above was about how we have tough looking fixtures but like yesterday, away to an inform playoff side unbeaten in 12 games, we played well and deservedly won the game.  

 

But someone replied and disagreed with the fact that I was saying we can give anyone a game on our day.  Which is their right, it’s all about opinions at the end of the day.
