    Simple yes or no poll.

    No need for lots of questions using differing scenarios such as automatic or via the play offs and only if x amount of new players are signed etc.

    Unfortunately not. We like others are chasing the pack and we lack the quality and depth that other sides in a similar position have.

    I do think we will have little moments where we think it is "on" and if it is then brilliant and I hope we take the chance, I just hope disillusion doesn't come into it if we do not, which my gut instinct tells me will be the case. I think we will have an all too familiar end of the season that we used to have during the 90s and the year before Mick got us up.

    I just want a positive end to the season and go out on a good note with the intention on building on what we have. Not making the play-offs does not mean failure - although I do think it will go down as an opportunity missed.

    I don't see it myself. It's still possible of course, but I think on too many occasions this season we've come up just short, where a genuine top 6 side would have done better. Charlton at home for instance, we laboured to a 0-0, whereas Watford thumped them by five.

    I have thought we had an outside of play-offs and then a 1/4 chance for most of the season (not November!) However despite it not looking much less likely mathematically I am inclined to think we just don't have enough options to make the top 6 even to have a roll of the dice. So no - pretty much given up hope (until we win on Saturday and someone above us loses when I'll say it's game on again!)

    Terribly worded poll!

    I've voted yes, even though I'd lean towards a unlikely option.

    No, we all know we haven't got enough depth in the squad.

    I voted no. I wouldn't say we have no chance just that it is unlikely.
    Might be strange for us to have a season with little to play for over the final weeks. When did we last have that.
    Challenge is to be ready for next season. Can see some squad changes in the summer.

    If we make the play offs it would be like the year Albion took us to the cleaners. We might look close to the top 6 but the gap is huge in my eyes. We need some serious investment in the summer but we all know that is never going to happen under Morgan's academy drive.

    Not a good enough squad or manager at this moment in time unfortunately.

    I don't think so but even if we make the playoffs we'll be the whipping boys. If we pick up 6 points these next 2 games at least it keeps it interesting when Watford, Derby & Ipswich come here. Wigan away & Millwall home are also very winnable last games.

    Why is it terribly worded?

    As the OP says it was a simple yes or no poll.

    No need to add in half a dozen questions with what's, ifs and maybes in there.

    I think it is because it says 'Yes, we can', rather than 'Yes, we will'.

    We definitely can considering we're not a million miles away from the play-offs and there are still 15 games left. I just don't think we will, largely due to our inability to break down sides at home.

    I've gone for yes, mathmatically we are 4 games from 1st, highly unlikely we will make the play offs, but at the end of the day if we give up hope and doing what we can to spur the team on then we may as well not bother watching or following any sport at all.

    Easily possible. 2 games ago we battered Huddersfield with clinical precision and were on an unbeaten run of 8 games.

    This isn't a theory of mathematical improbabilities and technical attributes or lack of. This is what football's all about for $$$$s sake!

    The march is on.

    Simple. No. In five years when the academy bears fruit then we'll romp to the title, two years after that the Premiership and two years after that the Champions League. All with home-grown talent.

    Personally it should have been a three option poll. With an unlikely/ unsure middle option. Or if need be simply worded yes or no.

    All a matter of opinions though of course.

    It isn't worded great Essex

    I think we have a small chance of promotion. That isn't there!

    I see. Used the word will in the title as opposed to can as by saying can I felt people might say "Well of course we can but it's case of will we" if that makes sense.

    Point taken. Just wanted a simple yes or no Alex, no excuses stuff as such.

    No - we lost the chance when we couldn't bring in the quality players we needed in January.

    On the bright side if Sako and Dicko get crocked at least we've got enough points to stave off relegation.

    33 - 28 - 30 - 19 - 26 - 23

    4 - -2.

    What do the above numbers stand for. They represent the goal difference of the first 8 teams in the Championship table as at today. One can reconcile the favourable double figures of the first 6 teams in the automatic promotion places and play-off places.

    Then comes the Bees with just 4 goals, and Wolves with a negative goal difference. This fact on its own confirms that Wolves have no chance even to challange for promotion by taking a play-off place.

    Who still dream that Wolves can be promoted this season, must be a very positive person, who will remain hopefull that Wolves can achieve promotion or at least challange for promotion through a play-off place, until it is arithmetically possible. So I say - let them enjoy the remaining part of the season. From my point of view the season has already ended for Wolves.

    If we did get promoted this season it would cost many, many millions to get good enough players in to to just survive. Don't think SM is prepared to invest the amount required at present, even allowing for the Sky money etc.Imho he would rather do it by gradually rebuilding - no pun intended

    Do I think we WILL be promoted this season? - No
    Do I think we CAN be promoted this season? - Yes
    Do I think Wolves have NO CHANCE of promotion this season? - No, we have a chance, just not a very big chance.

    Successive home wins could throw us right back into the mix. I think we would need around 27 points from 15 games to make the play offs, so 6 points from these two very winnable games would get us well on track.

    I think one of the main factors is literally taking it game by game. With KJ setting his "target" we have done the total opposite. At the start of the season we was playing with so much freedom and enjoyment by not looking past the game ahead. Now because of targets being set we have resorted to really playing within ourselves. There is a lack of expression. Lee Evans probably sums that up best, start of the season he was outstanding, here there and everywhere - now he is robot like.

    My heart says yes and my head says we'll finish 7th on goal difference (as is normally the Wolves way)...

    Either way, I wouldn't be too down about it.

    if we went out and attacked teams playing at high tempo and pressing when without possession then yes we easily could get promoted but we dont.

    No.

    Which is a great pity because this a very average league this year, and we have been foot dragging since the end of last season!

    Ps.The quickest way back to the Premier League for us would have been to have kept Mick McCarthy as Manager.
