    I agree with the view that 88 points should guarantee us promotion. By this reckoning we need 45 points from 28 games. To better this Reading would need to achieve 56 points.
    To achieve our target we need 13 wins(14 to date)6 draws(1 to date)9 defeats(3 to date)
    To achieve their target Reading need 17wins(10 to date)5draws(3 to date)6 defeats(5 to date). I shall update this after every game and hope we get to the Promised Land.:)

    This is intended to show the breakdown of what is required in terms of results as opposed to when we will/may go up. All it is is a bit of light heartedness that will show how the rest of the season is panning out on a game by game basis,not predicting what we will/might get in each of the games.

    What we need to go up?

    To either win the League or finish second.

    I was trying my best to avoid that situation. What with our record in them and all that.

    Technically, Reading only need 55pts due to their superior goal difference (which would be even more superior in all probability if they'd got 10pts more than us over the rest of the season)...

    Pure conjecture. All I said was they would need 56 points to beat our total of 88-FACT!

    They may not beat our total of 88 but if they match it and have a superior goal difference then your opening statement that 88pts would 'guarantee' us promotion would be looking a bit thin. Conjecture it may be but according to your calculations they'd have won 4 more games than us and lost 3 fewer, so from a starting point of a +4 goal difference they'd need some heavy defeats and lots of 1 goal wins not to better our GD (which looking at their results thus far would seem highly unlikely). Conversely we'd need to only lose games by 1 goal and win loads by a cricket score (which again based on results to date looks highly unlikely).

    Here's hoping we don't have to have this conversation again at the end of the season.:D

    My theory is based on a win gurantees you 3 points. The conjecture element is whether you win/lose by a large/small margin,therefore GD is not quantifiable. Hopefully we beat my/others projected target of 88 points which renders the argument irrelevant,but I shall continue to update the stats as we go along. Hope we are all dancing on the pitch come May.;)
     
  14. I like all these threads!

    Better than "how many points do we need to avoid relegation?"

    I disagree that we only need 88 points. I think that us, Blues and Reading are going to run hard to the end of the season. The winner will probably top a 100 points IMO and second will be well over 90.

    It is going to be very close...

    Not wishing to kill initiative Jonzy, I just didn't see any significant new dimension, but don't let me deter you, carry on with the thread. You never know it may take on a life like no other.;)
