    Hmmm... I can easily see Reading getting that set of results, or even bettering it. I know this is a discussion for another thread, but it could well be 95+ points needed this year.

    I've wondered why they've not been included, but I thought this thread was tied in to a previous one and didn't want to ask...:eek:

    As I said on one of the previous posts,the comparison is between ourselves and the 'Elm Park Biscuitmen' because they are 3rd and as and when they replace Blues in 2nd place,the comparison will change.:)
     
  9. Hi - can I ask why do Reading need 89 points? I thought this all started with the premis that 88 points were needed for promotion - so the stats should show what we both need to achieve that shouldn't they..?

    Plus, Reading have a better goal diff at the moment and if the run of results happen to get the points above they would almost certainly have a much better diff (as they would have won more games in the second half of the season - so the same number of points would put them above Wolves...

    88 won't be enough IMO. 12/13 more wins should see us over the finish line safely.

    Why do we only need 88?
    We are going to get more
    Why only mention Blues,why not Reading?
    What about goal difference?
    Are we really going to lose another 8?
    -----saved you all asking the same old!:rolleyes:
     
  14. Based on their ppg Blues are on for 90 points so that should be enough given our vastly superior goal difference. We need to be hitting 1.55 ppg for the rest of the season to hit that total and we are currently averaging 2.33!

    Overall,I agree that we may well need more. What I think is interesting is that Burnley are only 4 points behind .All of a sudden Blues are being attacked from both sides,which could work to our advantage. Burnley are a useful side,who play good football and score goals

    88 is just a figure plucked out of the air, no one 'knows' how many points are needed to guarantee promotion.

    I reckon that if we win every game we are safe. In fact by my scientific calculations we can even afford to lose a couple of games. That is all we need to worry about

    Wasn't it the minimum number of points required for automatic promotion as recommended by dr cool to MM?

    I think we will need 92 points this year to secure one of the two automatic places. I know every game is important, but that one against Doncaster was a very big win.

    When we are looking back on this season those 3 points could be viewed as the pivitol moment of the season.

    IF we can win against Sheffield and Blackpool that would be 62 points with 20 matches to go.

    From that position 10 wins would do it in my view - giving 92 points. (or 8 wins and 6 draws, 6 losses).

    It is not going to be easy that is a FACT, but if we are on 60 points or more after the Blackpool match we really are in the pound seats, especially if Blues drop points at Ipswich.

    This run of Christmas games are always important, Blues have lost the last two and we have won. I know it can all turn around but if they fail to win at Ipswich the presure will be building on them big time.

    Each game becomes the biggest of the season until we are mathematically certain or as good as. I think Reading and Blues have squads for the long haul so keeping the momentum going is critical. We may well need 93/94 points. Of course knowing where you going to be the following season as early as possible is also important in terms of transfer targetting.

    We will burn this division. Have faith in this team. I am not too worried about Brums or Reading. As long as we can take one game at a time and get the three points, i am contented.

    Let Reading and Brums fight for the other slot;)

    Buy a quality winger and central midfielder in January and I don't think we need to worry about the rest.

    agreed JR, now is the time to strenghten, if we don't and god forbid the worst were to happen, this season would be judged more harshly than the prem season.

    That said i've far more faith in the club as a whole now to see what's needed and more importantly to do something about it

    Realistically,Mick,s prediction of 92 is about right.My prediction is based on dr Cool's prediction at the start of the season. I am sure we all agree that it is squeaky bum time and many assume that if our 7 point lead is eroded-that will be it-we can't push on again ,but we can. Jan and Feb are difficult months,but March/April,May are a bit easier. Reading and Blues will also have sticky patches along the way.

    People have been saying our lead will be eroded all season.

    We lost against Reading bubble burst
    Lost against Norwich, dropped to second that was it only a matter of tome before we were out of the play off's.

    Each time we have proven how good we are, I fully expect us to finish top, and I don't care who finishes second

    Pre Christmas I had Blues finishing on 92 points after checking their fixtures. They got 1 point more than I gave them over Christmas which would get them to 93. All hypothetical of course. It's far too early to be doing this :D.

    What do we need to go up? A fan base that gets behind the team and makes Molineux a fortress, not a place where they feel scared to put a foot wrong and get slagged off. Simple. We do that and we go up. Will it happen? Will it $$$$.
