What points will we finish on and position

by linkenholtroyal » 21 Jan 2019 17:53

I thought it might be fun if we all guessed the points we think we will end on and the position we will be in at the end of the season.

I will put everyone’s together and we will see who is right at the end of the season. I will only count peoples guesses up until kick off against Bolton.

My guess is

20th on 48 points

What's the prize? We could all put a shilling in. Just saying...

I'm betting a lot on RFC winning at Bolton

I think the psychological lift (if we win) will be MASSIVE

A defeat would be equally devastating.

But I think we are a hugely better team than under Clement. I would expect a big upturn in form and points per game anyway. I worry about Bolton, solely because of the psychological affect of a defeat.

I also think that IF we win at Bolton, relax a little, managed to beat Villa well, we could go on a McDermott type winning run. We are mentally fragile (but getting better) and I think we could easily become a winning side and next year's dark-horses

Not insane IMO (and Napoleon agrees)

It includes a horrible patch with four defeats in five games

I have us down for 22 points and finishing in 20th on GD - 45 points total -19 GD, but if it gets that close, then it's practically the flip of a coin.

20 Reading 45 -19
21 Millwall 45 -22
22 Rotherham 45 -25
23 Ipswich 36 -36
24 Bolton 34 -46


Bolton (A) - W
Villa (H) - L
Wednesday (A) - D
Blackburn (H) - D
Sheff Utd (H) - L
Rotherham (H) - D
Ipswich (A) - L
Wigan (H) - W
Leeds (H) - W
Stoke (A) - L
PNE (H) - W
Hull (A) - D

The filth or otherwise of that run in will depend on how the team does in the next 8 or so games, if the team click and we get on a roll then they we will look at that very differently. If we pootle along like we are now, then yeah, ouch.

For my money, I think we'll pick up another 25 points W7 D 4 L 7 to get to 48 and finish 19th.

Wearing Rose Tinted Glasses - We're not mathematically out of winning the title - If we win all our remaining games that will put us on 77 points, which admittedly looks a little low for a title winning team but other results could go our way.

Wearing Shot Tinted Glasses - We're on 23 points now, we won't pick up anymore and we'll be hit with a 20 points deduction for going into administration, So 3 points.

I feel confident in saying we'll finish somewhere in between those two scenarios.

Taking into account we obtained 44 points last season and we're currently on target to get 37/38 points this season, that combined total of 82/83 points still wouldn't have been enough for automatic promotion last season, or the season before, or the season before, or the season before etc etc....
