Love your optimism, but We_Will fail to score the required goals to get into the top two.

We were going to drop out of the playoffs months ago according to you. [rle]

I think top 2 is probably a long shot now unless we beat Sheffield United and Norwich though.
Assuming we make it, I'd have Bristol City of the current lot in the play-offs but I expect them to drop out again.

I still think we'll finish top 2. I had a tenner on winning the other day 22-1. I don't think Norwich will slip up though.

To be honest, we could beat Sheffield Utd and Norwich, but the issue is the games against poor sides at the Riverside we will end up drawing rather than winning because he sets up in such a negative way we won't break them down.

We don't score enough goals to finish in the top two places and I'm not sure I fancy us enough in the play-offs.

At least under Karanka the team was always up for the big games and played with an arrogance and belief- not something I see in us at the moment.

I would guess we are about a 12/1 shot for top 2 now. Lose tomorrow and it is gone, win tomorrow and their is some hope.

Realistically I think we will finish between 4th and 7th.

Can we go up, yes of course, will we, on the balance of probabilities I think not but hope beyond hope I am wrong

It's very likely we'll be in the play-offs.

It's very unlikely we'll win the play-offs.

If we do, then next season will be a permanent relegation battle.

If we don't, then next season will be pretty much the same as this season.

Our record against the top teams in our division is unquestionably the best of all teams. With this in mind we have a great chance if we take that record into the play-offs.

I agree with the op on this one - we dont score enough goals and our home record is very poor. That gives us no chance realistically of reaching the top two, unless we turned our form on its head. Im more confident of winning the play offs than I was last season though.

To say we were better in the big games under Karanka would simply not be true, Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich are three games that spring to mind where we underperformed on the day.

If wed held on against Leeds wed be very much in amongst the automatic promotion hunt, we didnt and that realistically means were going to have go on a run in the next 6/7 games where we pick 3 or 4 points more than those around us, that would bring our game in hand into play and put pressure on other teams in the final few games.

At the moment were best priced at 17/2 to finish top 2, which I think is about right, a positive result tomorrow will mean we will make ground on a rival and at least maintain touch with Norwich and Leeds, still a long way to go and plenty of twists and turns to come, under Lawrence I have a feeling we were only in the top 2 in the last 20 minutes of the season, although that might be a false memory.

Home form is poor right now, but we've only had 8 points less at home than the side with the best home form, Norwich (24 to their 32), with one game less played. It's not a huge, huge gap.

A lot of that will be buoyed by the early season results, but I'd like to hope we could turn it around again.

Yep I agree with BoroBen, youve posted a few times this season you expect us to lose upcoming games heavily, which we didnt, with being a negative poster I can understand you giving up hope of reaching the top 2

Top two looks a stretch right now, but there are lots of points to be won and lost between now and the end of the season. All it takes is for either Norwich or Leeds to have a blip at the wrong time and the race for the top two opens right up.

If we do end up going to the playoff though, I would just like to see us give it a good go and not play for a draw. Our showing against Villa was a massive let down

We'd do well to finish on 83 points that would be averaging 2 points per game from our last 16. Looks like it's gonna be 88 points for automatic promotion.

It's like anything really.. if we win all of our remaining games.. we'll get promoted [:D]

Top 2 is around 10% chance for me. We are likely to get between 80 and 84 points if we keep key players fit.


None the top 4 look as good as Wolves, Cardiff or Fulham did last season therefore I am not convinced 88 points or above will be second. It could be as low as 86 points.

Agree. We don't score enough goals to win enough games to get enough points to make top two.
We may just be able to hang on to a play off spot but we won't prevail there either for the same reason - inability to put the ball in the net often enough.
We will be playing in the Championship again next season.

I think we will be in playoffs and then its a lottery West Brom Norwich top 2 hoping for a Leeds final.
