    With just 6 games left and there being only 7 points separating the top 8 teams in the championship I still feel there will be some twists and turns along the way.

    I'd love Wolves to continue their recent good run whilst their rivals have a blip allowing Wolves to sneak in and grab an auto promotion spot. However I feel this is unlikely, although not impossible, and as such have settled in my mind that gaining a PO place is the best to expect.

    Should reaching the PO's be the case who would be the three other teams involved you'd prefer to see there.

    For me and from what I've seen this season then right now I'd prefer to see Bournemouth and Norwich go up automatically and like to see Derby and Brentford dip out.

    That would leave Boro, Ipswich and Watford in the PO pot with Wolves and if so reckon Wolves have the beating of all of those right now.

    Only team I'd like to avoid is Norwich. They'd batter us

    What does it matter? If we avoid xyz in the semi we will just have them to play in the final

    Slightly misread the OP question.. teams to avoid if they miss out on the playoffs entirely ideally would be Watford and Bournemouth

    Wolves have struggled against some sides more than others that's all so if possible I'd prefer it if those sides could be avoided.

    Ipswich in the semis, Brentford in the final.

    Anyone except Norwich to be honest Essex. If forced I would pick Ipswich, Derby (who suddenly look quite weak and think they would crumble in the pressure of the POs) and Boro (got a pasting off Watford recently, we beat them comfortably).

    Wouldn't be too upset about Watford and Brentford but more worried about them than the others. If Watford were more consistent I think they would be the best team in the league, on their day they could give anyone a hammering. Brentford I keep waiting for them to slip up and be exposed as punching above their weight but they carry on getting great results, 4-1 at Fulham yesterday in a high pressure match shows some class, and they will carry a lot of confidence into the play offs if they get there. Shame really as I've grown to $$$$ing hate Brentford.

    If I had to pick a single team for the semis I would pick Derby.

    Not wishing to get ahead of myself at all, but is the ticket allocation 50/50 for the final these days or is there a chance we might get more if we play Brentford?

    I think we'd beat Middlesbrough over two legs so them in the Semis, followed by a win over Watford in the final.

    From a personal family perspective, that would be Nirvana.

    We could beat any of the teams above us, equally any of them could beat us. I'd rather we didn't play Ipswich though, they play turgid kick and rush $$$$e and who wants to watch that?

    I think all teams would be tough so I cannot decide in that respect. But as a fan who would be going to the semi's if we were to get there, I would prefer Watford or Brentford as they for me are a lot easier to get to. Travelling to Norwich, Ipswich and Boro is a right pain in the $$$$!

    I think it'll be Norwich & Middlesbrough who get the automatics.
    Bournemouth, Watford, Brentford, Wolves for POs.

    Believe it or not I'd prefer to play Watford. Then Bournemouth in the final giving them a good kicking for those 2 games. I think we were very lucky against Brentford at home and I think they would beat us.

    I'd like to avoid Ipswich, can just see us both making the playoffs and then losing to them in the final

    Wolves were awful at Brentford and were certainly under the cosh at Molineux but I believe Wolves have improved a great deal since either of those games.

    Just out of interest, would we get double the tickets if we got through against Bournemouth in the final due to average gates?

    If we make the play-offs, a great achievement, you just see it in the stars to face Ipswich and give McCarthy his opportunity to finally get own back against Morgan. Can picture his gloating mug right now.

    if we make the play offs we will be 6th which by my reckoning will mean we play Boro or watford in the semis. Think Norwich and Bournemouth are up automatically. Hunch it could be a Brentford v Wolves final.

    Nobody answered me earlier so I did my own research! If Derby and QPR split it equally I imagine that it will always be the case. Anyone would sell 37000 for a play-off final - look at Walsall! Just hope this turns out to be a problem for us.

    I don't think we can judge that period haha. We've done the job over 3 of the 5 of those November/december fixtures. I just get the feeling Brentford can turn a game on its head easier, hope I'm wrong.

    Of the top seven I think I'm right in saying Bournemouth are the only ones we've not been able to beat- or even take a point off (granted Ipswich still to come) so clearly we don't want them! As for the rest I suspect Norwich are the strongest and judging by what I saw at Carrow Rd completely outplayed us so let them both go up automatic ( which I think they will) and IF we make the POs then we'll just take on whoever is left with atleast a sporting chance.

    Know what you mean.

    Can't deny Bournemouth play some nice football but in both games Wolves have faced them they have had some real luck and Wolves absolutely none.
