Re: Relegation Watch

Relax everyone. It was in our hands before last night and even more so now. With 2 teams 5 behind us and one team 3 there is no way 3 teams are going past us with 2 games to play even if we lose both.

Have a feeling we'll be mathematically safe on Saturday even if we lose.

Re: Anyone Nervous?

For Bolton to go past us they need to turn round a run of 1pt from 18 to pick up at least 4 (assuming we get 0). For Burton to go past us they will need to have been on a run of 4 straight wins. My point was that Bolton play Burton! So unless we all draw (yes please but odds against), either Bolton...

Re: Saturday

We thought we would beat Sunderland and we thought we would get at least a draw at Wednesday. Neither happened; as the squad almost to a man;are either unmotivated (Aluko/Martin) , stupid (Kermit/Edwards/Bacuna/Blackett) or just plain useless (the rest bar perhaps Moore & Barrow). Clement was p...

Re: Anyone Nervous?

You can't come on here talking sense! This is the panic thread don't you know?! And obviously Bolton, Barnsley and Burton are all going to hit form now, just like they've been about to have a rich run of form ever since the turn of the year when we were 19th. It's a result of those obvious turnarou...

Re: Anyone Nervous?

I'm nervous! I dont get the relaxed attitiude. 10 years ago we were sent down by Fulham winning 3 in a row and winning away for the first time in a year. I think we can assume we will lose both our games (pretty likely given our Sat 3pm home record and Cardiff's form). I know Ipswich are rudderless...

Re: Anyone Nervous?

Bolton and Barnsley are so poor that we are 100% safe. Neither one of them will get two wins and the goal difference is heavily in our favour too. We have a 2 goal better GD than Barnsley. Yep, if Barnsley get level with us on points, they will have a better GD than us. They won't though so it's al...

Re: Anyone Nervous?

Saturday is our play off to stay in the championship. Simple as that. Win that and we are safe barring some absolutely freakish results. Get behind the boys, create an atmosphere, do our bit, thank Paul Clement and let the rebuild commence. Now why have you done that. You know what our record is li...

Re: Relegation Watch

Just for the record, if Barnsley don't get more than 1 point from their next two fixtures Reading will be safe even if they lose both of their final games (presuming Bolton don't manage a 10-15 goal win v Forest). If Barnsley don't win tomorrow, I can't see them picking up another point given their...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

It must've been close between them. Will be interesting to see if MS can continue his form into next year, whereas I expect KdB to be one of the best players in the league again. Doubtful as he'll be expected to play in the shadow of Ronaldo at the Bernabau. Should start comfortably ahead of Bale t...

Hamburg trying to pull off another miracle escape from relegation. 5 points adrift now and have Wolfsburg up next, who are one of the 3 teams on 30 points they are trying to catch up with, Freiburg (who they beat this weekend) and Mainz the others. A win will see them close the gap to 2 with a game ...

Re: Relegation Watch

Experimental 361 site has raised our % probability for relegation 1% following the weekends results.

They now see us as having a 3% chance to drop.

They see the bottom 3 as is dropping, obviously Sunderland have already gone.

C’mon Burton Despite our piss-poor season (end-of-season) you are raising your credits....hope you make it. Makes next week interesting. Without them winning today we could have been safe next weekend even with a loss (barring massive GD swing). As Bolton play Burton, if we lose then we will only b...

Re: South Stand Singers For Sunderland (H)

Not that I'd ever suggest this personally but it could be suggested by others that a lot of the people in the group only took part to get special attention like this. They wanted to be made to feel special and look like real fans in front of the players. Others could suggest this group are complete...

3 points means we need to win a game, or draw all three https://media.giphy.com/media/DHqth0hVQoIzS/source.gif My point is, that really means we have to WIN ONE GAME as I can't see us going unbeaten for the last three games and winning games is something we are very poor at We don't need to win any...

Frankfurt make it through to the cup final, to lose to Bayern. Will be interesting in that the Frankfurt manager takes over at Bayern this summer, so this will be his last game. Was a terribly timed announcment, Eintracht had a chance of making the CL but following the announcement got stuffed at Le...
