“ What do you think we need? “

Tue Mar 13, 2018 10:45 pm

If either Villa or Fulham win their remaining nine games, we can afford to lose two and still go up. For example if we lost on Sunday and if we lose at Villa.

I’d say it’s unlikely that either of those teams will win eight in a row, and can see six wins easily being enough. Our remaining games are below.

What do you think we need to seal automatic promotion now, with nine games to go (27 points to play for, with a seven point lead from Villa and eight-point lead from Fulham)?

P.S... Forget about the title - see if that works :lol:

Can't see Fulham losing any from now until the end of the season. Potentially draw to QPR, Sheff Wed, Millwall. I don't think Villa will be a threat to us.

Think 5 wins will definitely be enough (4 if we beat villa)

We need to win them all, and win the League :ayatollah: :ayatollah: :ayatollah: :ayatollah: :bluescarf: :bluescarf: :bluescarf: :bluescarf:

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Tue Mar 13, 2018 11:13 pm

I think 6 but one of them needs to be villa.

Automatic promotion is the only way :bluebird:

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Tue Mar 13, 2018 11:14 pm

I said before the Brentford game that 6 wins 2 draws and 2 losses would be enough imo to get automatic promotion, so now I reckon 5 wins and we'll do it, but it will be tough.

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 12:03 am

I believe we are closing in on automatic now.
89/90 points on current form will possibly be fine.
Villa losing was more of a surprise than us winning tonite.

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 12:24 am

12 points will be enough imo for promotion 86 points. If 1 of those wins is against villa. if we do beat villa they have to win 6 out of their last 8 games.and i cant see fulham sustaining their form and getting 18 points they need to win 6 of their last 9. however I think we will get more. Don't see why we can't win league. we will finish with more points (87) than when we won championship 5 years ago. I think we will finish on about 93 points 5wins 2draws 2defeats.

As it stands would we lose easily at home to a bang average QPR side. No I don't think so, I feel Fulham are definetly the main threat

It's our defence that makes us different to the others, we don't concede many making us hard to beat, and the front line are back firing on all cylinders, Mendez, Zohore and Hoilett are difficult to stop !!! :ayatollah: :ayatollah: :ayatollah:

We can do it :ayatollah: :ayatollah: :ayatollah:

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 7:22 am

Villa need 2 wins and a draw to to go level on points with us (so that's 3 games they need just to go level with us) , we can now afford to lose 2 games of the last 9

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:06 am

Winning last night will be crushing to Vila and fulham

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:16 am

As much as Fulham may not lose a game, I can see them drawing a couple, maybe 3, Millwall, Norwich are not easy places to go and it is worth noting, they can’t really afford to drop points, if they don’t drop a point fair play to them

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:18 am

I think the target is 91 points. That should just about guarantee second spot.

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:46 am

Fulham v QPR local derby this week hopefully QPR pull it out of the bag again

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:56 am

Who thought we would win 7 on the bounce? I didn't, anything can happen and expect plenty of twists and turns to come.

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 12:08 pm

Villa looked Nailed on for the title after Destroying Wolves on Saturday. Then they get hammered by A lower mid table side at home. This league is incredible

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 12:12 pm

We got the roughest run in there by a mile

Ive got a weird feeling Fulham, Villa and us will all drop points this weekend :o

How great would it be to guarantee automatic promotion by beating Villa away!

TOTALLY AGREE, win next 4, we will be autos. Can see us beating or drawing with Villa, that will do it. :bluescarf:

if thats true then its ok for us, as we go last of the three. if the other two both drop points then a draw at derby will be more than ok

It would be a good result I think Paul! Derby aren't mugs and 4 weeks ago we'd have snapped your hands off for a draw :thumbright:

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 1:09 pm

Villa and Fulham need a 3 game swing to be level on points with us or to overtake us. I would say they both need to win at least 6 of their final 9 games to stand any chance of catching us. So 5 wins for us should be enough to stay clear of them. Maybe 4 wins and the odd draw if we can take points off Villa.

BUT saying that, anything can happen in the championship! You only have to look at our results over December to see that! And out of the top 4, we have probably got the hardest run of games.

Our games against Villa, Wolves and United will decide our season I think!

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Wed Mar 14, 2018 2:11 pm

We might have the hardest run in against higher teams in the league but Fulham do have derby games and teams fighting at the bottom. Don't know what I'd rather to be honest.

Hardest run inbut it doesn’t work out that way , who thought villa would lose to qpr at home

Same as us we could lose to burton home then beat wolves and villa , the league Is so unpredictable

Villa beat wolves then lost to qpr , people saying Fulham will walk their run in , they won’t win all 9 games they’ll draw or lose a few

Re: “ What do you think we need? “

Thu Mar 15, 2018 12:45 pm

Minimum 15 points probably 18 would do it :occasion5:
