I've done the calculator/predictor thing and got:

3rd Leeds
4th Us
5th Bristol City
6th Villa

Also got Vile on goal difference like a previous poster.

Tomorrow's game will be a very good marker of where we stand - unfortunately I can't seeing it being good.

2nd Sheff Utd
3rd Leeds
4th Albion
5th Villa
6th Bristol

I think it's likely there will be no change come the end of the season from the current positions.

I do think both Villa and Bristol will narrow the gap and that there will be no more than 2-3 points between them and Albion, at most.

I would actually prefer to finish 6th and play Leeds in the semi-final as after missing out on automatic the pressure could get to them and our more experienced players could rise to the occasion. Would hope to avoid Villa, but playing them looks inevitable at the minute.

My Prediction

1   Norwich City               100pts
2   Leeds United                92pts
3   Sheffield United             89pts
4   West Bromwich Albion  80pts
5   Aston Villa                   75pts       
6   Derby County              74pts
 
I think Norwich are going to run away with it now and win nearly all their games, if not all. Leeds and Sheffield will win most weeks but stutter occasionally with a loss/draw. I think we're going to have some poor results in the final 6 games but wins against Reading, Rotherham and Hull will get us over the line, with losses/draws in all 3 of the other games. I think Villa are going to maintain their hot form into the playoff places and Derby will creep in with some good results.

1 Norwich
2 Sheff U
3 Leeds - they are losing too often to get top 2
4 Us
5 Villa
6 Derby

Which means we will play Villa in the semis.

The play offs are a lottery, and we haven't even bought a ticket. We'll be the only team to ever enter the play offs with a 0% chance of winning them.

The way we've played after Christmas against any team doing well would make the play offs extremely unlikely. Certainly Leeds or Villa would absolutely batter us right now, and judging from tonight we couldn't handle Bristol City either. That's if we even make the play offs -'Boro are just off 6 losses in a row and the way we're playing I wouldn't be certain that wouldn't happen here either.

I don’t want to be in the playoffs either, just prolongs the season for an additional 3 weeks!

Lose to Preston Saturday and our hope of making play offs under serious pressure, majority of these players aren't good enough and can't wait to get rid of these over paid knobs. Please let Dawson be first one out of door followed by Livermore.

Oh come on. I know we haven’t played well recently but it’s still just 2 defeats! Boro have come out of a 6 match streak losing every single game. We have every chance and fans need to believe this. I don’t get this catastrophic mindset given we have still had some good wins in our last couple of months?
Albion till i die, blue and white, the wolves are most definitely S***e!

Not really...with our hugely superior goal difference we need an absolute maximum of 78 points, assuming that Derby win all 6 of their remaining games, 76 if Boro win all of their games and 74 if Wednesday win all of theirs.

If we don’t make the playoffs from here then we really won’t deserve the opportunity.

Villa play Bristol City at the weekend. Lose that and the 6th playoff spot really is wide open between Villa, Boro, Derby and Wednesday

78 Points?
That's 2 wins and 2 draws from our last five games?
So we can only afford 1 loss, 2 at the most if we get 3 wins.
Not looking good is it?
I can see us wanting something from the last game of the season at Derby.

We’re 9 points above 7th after losing the last two. We might not even need another win to guarantee a play off spot. We will limp into the playoffs and get beat convincingly. Let’s just hope it isn’t villa we play

You know its going to happen....

We will inevitably hear from our friend McSkittle, who will make so many postings he will likely be asked to be a moderator!

You guys will definitely make the playoffs.

Starting to believe we might somehow make it too.

Starting to think that our players already believe that they will reach the Play offs and have gone into 'Beach football' mode.

I said exactly the same to a friend. Once the realistic chance of catching the top two had gone, I think something in the players minds had turned off as we looked so comfortable to finish 4th.

It's also the reason I don't think we are rushing Phillips back and possibly Barry too. The club seem to think we are guaranteed a play off spot, and maybe are just saving Matty and Gareth until the last couple of games of the season to get them back up and running for the playoffs.

The danger of course is, on current form and the form of the clubs below, we could end up fighting for a position in the playoffs.

Such a pitiful waste if so, had we won the last two we'd only be three points off the autos and our GD would at the very least closer to that of Leeds.

Playing the way we are I do think we'll manage to stay in the play off places but it'll be in 6th place.

I'm going for:

3rd Sheff Utd
4th Villa
5th Bristol City
6th WBA

Should we somehow get solid at the back and start creating things then I think it'll be

3rd Sheff Utd
4th WBA
5th Villa
6th Bristol City

It's geared up for us to have Villa. We had a laugh beating them in the league but I think they'll have the last laugh in the play offs.

That ended well didn't it?
