Poll

I'll be happy if we finish

Top half table - we've still got a lot of work to do
Top 6 / Europe - we're too close now
Top 4 / Champions League - dude, 5 pts

36 pts, 12 matches to go.

Arsenal (A)
United (H)
Chelsea (A)
Liverpool (H)

Norwich (A)
Leicester (H)
Spurs (A)

Southampton (H)
Wolves (A)
Villa (H)
Sheffield United (A)
Bournemouth (H)


We took 9 of 21 points from the 1st leg against the bolded teams. We took - disgustingly - 3 of 15 points from the 1st leg against the italicized teams.

Can we match or better those 9 points? Can we demonstrate the steps forward we're taking and pull 10-12 points from the other 5?

Be lovely to get a place in Europe but ultimately it’s just important to finish the season strong so we can start next season positively

This year will be tight and we could finish anywhere from 4th if we go unbeaten till the end of the season to 10th if we draw and lose quite a few, which is equally as likely.

If we get European football then great, if not just maintaining our form and holding our own from here on in will stand us in good stead for Carlo's first summer.

Seventh but we really should be going all out for top 6. We're the second best form team at the moment, only Liverpool have a better return over the period since Ancelotti took over.

Liverpool's Liverpool so the devil will come along for the ride on that one but apart from that we should fancy ourselves in every other game.

I think we could possibly get 20 more points barring major injuries that might be good enough for 7th if Sheffield United or wolves collapse

Robbie the clueless cunt Savage reckons we'll finish 10th on 52 points, so he's basically pick up 12 points from our last 12 games.

7th for me.

To get Europa this season would be some achievment .Next 3 games are vital .Forget the shite.
Thing is we're one of 10 teams competing for 6/7th and Man U and Arsenal could go on a run .

We're capable of 7th even with this shitty midfield.

I'd be delighted if we finished above utd and Arsenal.

Italicized is a great word. Definitely the first time I've read or said it.

Somewhere between 7th and 10th I think.

7th seems realistic to me.  The next two matches will tell a lot.  Beat Arsenal and we have a big enough gap that we should be able to maintain it.  I think we'll finish above Sheff Utd and Wolves

Oh, and I think one other important aspect to note is that we have so many 6-point "swing" matches upcoming. Best United at home and it helps us, hurts them. #thanksCaptainObvious

53 points for the season. Guess I'm not much different to Robbie Savage...
