    Wolves v Ipswich looks huge.
    Just on the fixtures I feel like Brentford should be favourites. We must beat Wed, Leeds, Blues, Wigan and Millwall. One slip is the most we will get away with I think. See we are 8th in the betting to make top 3 at 3-1 which seems a little generous through my gold tinted specs.

    Sensible as ever Tring, but let's not forget that Brentford lost at home yesterday to a very average team who finished with 9 men. Predicting results is a tricky business!

    Nothing to fear, we've lost the same amount of games as the mighty Watford , just turn a few draws into wins....

    Momentum ! :cool:

    I think we can afford to lose two games and with Forest and Boro away we can't afford to lose a home game.

    Ipswich - 72
    Brentford - 77
    Wolves - 77

    Goal difference can be turned around with the games left ...

    Quite funny just watching the Football League show,
    and see idiot Mick screw it up with Ipswich.

    I tend to think they will fade away now, but Blackburn
    and Forest are still on a roll and could easily force themselves
    into the sixth place race.

    Yet according to some we can't catch the two above us and then others think the two below us can. Lol

    If you look at Blackburn's remaining games they are potentially a bigger threat than the 2 above us for that last spot(big game Tues against Brentford for them) but really think it's in our own hands. Just depends if we can get a run going again and am more hopeful than confident.

    We have just got to start playing to our best potential and maintain it. If we do, we can do it, if we don't we will fall short.

    We have another gear to move up into IMHO, but can KJ get the team right to do it?

    Brentford and Ipswich certainly seem to be coughing and spluttering a bit. Like said, Forest and Blackburn might be coming up on the rails!

    If you look at the predictions for points total for 6th above they seem to be around 76 points. To achieve this Blackburn or Forest would have to win 7 and draw one of their last 9 games. They might pass us, but I don't think either will make the top 6

    Forest IMO will come above us and Ipswich

    Brentford will take 6th and at 1/1 money is value IMO

    Forest have to play all three of us above them, the other two are away, they'll most probably have to win all three which is a huge ask.

    Don't think Forest or Blackburn are a threat for top 6 at all to be honest.

    As mentioned earlier, we have to start playing better than we have been and certainly with more consistency. This means we will need wins in the type of games we have been getting draws in and draws instead of losses.

    I expect that Brentford will drop some points but not so many, we have Ipswich to play so that is a must win. The points total to secure 6th spot is likely to be quite high.

    Next 4 matches for us are key IMHO, 3 home wins and a draw at Forest is not out of the question, but we would need to step up a gear to do that!

    Last 13 games = 22 points... 6 4 3 includes some poor performances in key games, need to step up a gear and KJ to pick the team that can.

    Last 11 games= 16 points!... 4 4 3, quite average for a team trying to make up ground for the playoffs.

    We can do it, but we have not performed well consistently enough and have contrived to draw games we could and possibly should have won and certainly not done ourselves justice in some key games.

    KJ tinkering hasn't helped and I still do not think he knows what his best team is.

    You will get strange results every week from now till end of the season,

    My view (this week) is Ipswich 77, Brentford 76, Wolves 75.

    So the three points we got ripped off for against Bournemouth could come back to haunt us?
    And possibly get them promotion of course.

    I'm sure every team have had a ref cost them points this season too..

    It's the team that drops the least points however that will finish above us. It's stating the obvious , but point being that we only have ourselves to blame if we don't make it.

    But it's inevitable teams will drop points, that's just how it is.

    It's inevitable that ref make mistakes, that's just how it is as well .

    To blame that one game and ref on why we didn't make play offs would be wrong IMO. We weren't 100% going to win that game, was still a long time to go.

    I'm only saying that at the time we were on top and looking likely to win that game. The referee's decision altered that possibility. I appreciate that refs decisions affect games but that one was blatant and could affect promotion or play-off possibilities. Still sticks in my throat, incompetent fool that Jones is.
