February "what a month, how many points will we get?"
« on: January 02, 2019, 10:04:21 AM »
(I put the Leeds one in as its as big, if not bigger then the others & only a couple days out)

West Bromwich Albion   - Middlesbrough               H Sat Feb 02 2019 15:00

Stoke City                    - West Bromwich Albion    A Sat Feb 09 2019 17:30

West Bromwich Albion   - Nottingham Forest         H Tue Feb 12 2019 20:00

Aston Villa                    - West Bromwich Albion    A Sat Feb 16 2019 15:00

West Bromwich Albion   - Sheffield United             H Sat Feb 23 2019 15:00

Leeds United                 - West Bromwich Albion   A Sat Mar 02 2019 15:00

I can't remember a month of matches with so much make or break, 1 big local derby & a couple of localish derbies but all 6 games that could directly affect the top 2 & play off places.

It'll be tough but I can't wait, bring it on.

I think we will come out of it with between 10-12 points (that prediction may change as we get towards the end of January  ;) )

I'd expect a couple of those to be re-scheduled for TV

I was always hoping we could get through the holiday period without losing any ground on Leeds and Norwich. We've done that even though we've taken only one point out of six. We've had a particularly gruelling time with Sky messing us about and a hectic Christmas / new year period on top of that and as we all know we do not have a young squad.

From now on the schedule shouldn't be quite as tough and I expect to see us kick on. In some respects the season really starts against Norwich, now is when we have to perform.

Livermore missing is a blow but we should have Hegazi back and hopefully Gayle. Hegazi is IMO (I know some will ridicule me but I'm ready for that) the best central defender in the Championship and when he doesn't play it hits us hard (1-4 v Derby, 1-1 Sheff Wed, 1-2 v Blackburn).

Mason Holgate arriving is huge for us if he plays at right back because he improves the team going forwards as well as defensively and takes the strain off Phillips a bit down the right hand side of the pitch. Holgate may not be Gibbs but he's much better on the ball than Tosin and I expect to see him get forward more often. Tosin is better suited at centre back and I'd rather have him as first cover for Dawson and Hegazi rather than the hapless Bartley.

Gayle, as everyone knows, gives us goals.

I'd still like to see a permanent right back come in during this window and an attack minded midfielder.

Yes it is, if we get past Wigan, the 4th round is the same weekend as we should play at QPR so having a good cup run will mean a backlog of games that have to be shoehorned in near the end of the season.

West Bromwich Albion   - Middlesbrough               W -- All out attack

Stoke City                    - West Bromwich Albion    L  -- New manager will sort this lot out

West Bromwich Albion   - Nottingham Forest         D -- Must win our home games but i think we will have one eye on the villa

Aston Villa                    - West Bromwich Albion    W -- No way would I think anything other than this

West Bromwich Albion   - Sheffield United             W -- Another full house and the ground will be buoyant after beating the villa

Leeds United                 - West Bromwich Albion   L -- Pay back and the crowd will be up for it at Elland Road

10 points. However I think we have an easier run-in compered to those around us.

I would revise those forecasts now, with Barnes gone.

We need 9/10 points really from that lot.
Whether we get that depends how we deal with losing barnes

Losing Barnes will affect us badly as we have very little creativity when he's not in the team.

I'm feeling pessimistic tonight. I think we'll get one win (Forest) and draws against Sheff and Stoke. I think we'll bottle the villa game, Leeds and Boro will both sneak a win.
