    Obviously given our fantastic start most of us would hope to not need the play offs this season.

    However to highlight just how excellent our start has been i believe we already have 1 foot in the play offs even at this early stage.

    points needed in recent seasons..( using the system of 1 point more than the team placed in 7th)

    99/00 - 75 points
    00/01 - 73
    01/02 -75
    02/03 - 71
    03/04 - 72
    04/05 - 71
    05/06 - 68
    06/07 - 75
    07/08- 71

    Average- 72.3 points
    over 46 games = 1.57 pts per game


    Team currently in 6th ( Cardiff 29 points)
    Average over 19 games= 1.52
    Average over 46 games at 1.52= 70.2 points

    Given that this season there is 14 teams currently seprerated by just 7 points and all of those should be taking plenty of points off each other IMO.. Its a fair assumption to say that this season the target for top 6 this season will probably be 70/71 points....

    Lets say its 71 as a realistic prediction..

    we would need 25 points from 27 games= 0.92 points per game..

    Obviously i hope we are well above that but it puts our start into context in terms of the season as to just how well we have done so far.. especially as our GD and GS would probably effectively be worth an extra points.

    Using the system based on 1 point more than 7th. Did we all not have a lesson the other day about it being 1 point more than 6th ;)

    Our start has been a complete dream though and if I could make it so we would go up via the playoffs.

    The system still works if you take our "1 goal out " finish from last season.. ;).. had we ended up on 71 instead of 70 then the "goal" wouldnt have come into it....

    I'm waiting for the thread on when we will get 100 goals or 100 points but maybe that's getting too optimistic. Btw, my prediction is 100 points vs Derby on 13th April and 100 goals vs Doncaster in last game
