Play offs
« on: March 26, 2019, 01:25:35 PM »
Barring a full scale disaster, we should make the play offs. I can't see the 7 point gap between us and second shrinking that much and we're 10 points clear of 7th.

So with all this in mind, who do you think will finish in positions 3-6, and ideally, who would you like to play and who in general would you like to avoid?

I'd like to avoid Leeds and Boro. I think Leeds would turn us over with ease and Boro would no doubt manage two 1-0 scraped victories. I'm also convinced that Villa would prove to be a tough test now they have JG back, but with it being a derby it would just depend on the day.

I'd feel most confident playing against Sheff Utd, Preston or Derby. I think we've learned a lot since playing Sheff Utd, so I think we could match them if not slightly better them.

3 Sheffield Utd
4 WBA
5 Derby

I wouldn't be scared of any of them if we approached it properly.

If we really do have the best squad in the division then we should walk the play offs whoever we play. I don't think we do, but I guess this is where we find out as, with no new manager on the horizon, we really need the players to step up and take some responsibility, personally I don't think they have the mettle and we risk going out with a whimper. I hope I'm wrong but nothing at the club is giving me confidence at present.

Its going to be a bit of a lottery.
We are capable of being awful and wonderful in equal measures in a hares breath.
I'd fancy us against Boro in the semi's then SOTV in the final.

Us and the scum from Witton in the final is something that puts the fear of god into me.

Play off final is Monday 27th May. I would assume the play off semis are a week or so after the conclusion of the season, which finishes on Sunday 5th May with 12.30 kick offs.

Same for me. Losing to anyone but them wouldn’t feel so bad. I still haven’t got over that nightmare week not so long ago.

Thanks. I was there and had managed to erase it with steady amounts of alcohol. ☺️

It’s almost a “fait accompli”, where ever we finish we will, at some stage of the play offs, be against the Vile. And I have concerns!

Cheers mate, I'm away with my work May 14th to 23rd and going to be booking me final ticket on line from the US by the looks of it and with a bit of luck might even make both legs of the semi or more likely at least one leg

I had Villa 7th too, losing their last two games and dropping points against Bristol and Wednesday. Here's hoping.

I had us playing Boro in the play-offs though - 9 points behind Leeds in 3rd, 9 ahead of Boro in 5th.

I predict that Boro and Derby will miss out.

Sheff United 3rd
Albion 4th
Villa 5th
Bristol City 6th.


Us against them fkrs over two legs in the semis.

Not sure my heart will take it.

Well I got a lot of my mid-season predictions hopelessly wrong. So here goes another.

3rd Leeds
4th West Brom'
5th Preston North End
6th Derby County

We aren't in contention for automatic but could overtake Leeds for 3rd spot on last day. Instead send a second string out to Derby who perform well but lose out late on to see them sneak ahead of Villa into 6th.

Sadly new rules we can only make 5 changes but that would be enough to lose I imagine.

Pro athletes view things differently to fans. They have mates in other teams so they're not likely to be swayed in the same way we are.

And I'd be very upset if we basically gave Derby a win just to get one over on the Villa. I always want us to win.
