Norwich equalize
BPF - Hossannah - Halme - Diaz - Struijk - Oduor - Gotts - Stevens - McCalmont - Temenuzhkov - Shackleton

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

Forest and Villla will find it difficult to impossible to catch us now ...

For all the fuss about our lack of signings in comparison to the likes of Villa I think it shows that Villa need signings a lot ore than we do.

A lot is made about Fulham signing Mitrovic but when they signed him they were mid table so desperately needed signings. Did Wolves or Cardiff significantly strengthen in the January transfer window last season

I would think so

I wish someone would stop Hull's progress

We'll probably be ok if the likes of Bamford, Berardi Dallas, Douglas, Brown are fit & able to play between now & the end of the season.

Also if we lose Jansson or Cooper to injury again we could have a problem, the return of Coops v Derby & we are back to keeping a clean sheet as we did with the Pontus/Cooper combo in their last three matches together before Cooper's injury at Bramall Lane

Lose Pablo to injuries, where is our other creative midfielder ? we are too reliant on Pablo's fitness

Villa's issue is they're trying to play out from the back with a Bruce team. If Smith was as great as he's made out to be, surely he'd know he doesn't have the players? :duno: Also his defence at Brentford was dreadful too.

Keeper is about all we absolutely need ...We won't find much to back up Pablo, emphasis on back up, unless the player is happy to maybe not used much till next season

Up to middle of March we only play 1 midweek game so at least Pablo can get good rest time.

As it stands we do not play a top 10 team in our final 6 games, we play only 6 top 10 teams in 19 games from this point on.

The three best teams we have yet to play, we play at home..Right now our toughest away game left is Middlesborough then Brum and Brizzle

19 games left
I think 10 wins, 5 draws, 4 defeats will be enough and we're capable of that, if not better.

The last 6 are all winnable= 18pts.
Average 2pts against the other 7 lower clubs = 14pts
Average 1pt against top 10 clubs = 6pts
Total 38pts + 54pts = 92
Take a couple off for defeats instead of draws against top 6 and that makes 90pts.
Should be enough this season in a tight top 6.
This represents less average points per game than current form so should be achievable.

No but as much as I don't like Monk, I hope his team get 3 points tonight.
Expecting a draw.

2-1 Norwich. The guy on the edge of the box had a chance to shoot and scored. Leeds pass up so many of these opportunities trying to score the perfect goal. Ticket & Raffle.

Be difficult for Brum to get anything out of this now.
