StrandedSnowflake RoyalWestYorksRoyal I just think we've underachieved against a number of lower teams this year but rarely look out of place against the better ones. Brentford away is the only game where a top opposition has looked definitively better than us, and maybe you could add a 45 minute implosion at Bournemouth. But it's against the likes of Millwall, Birmingham, Wycombe and Middlesbrough where results have not been up to scratch.
Which to be honest could almost certainly be said of most teams at the top. And far better to trip up v teams at the bottom than your actual rivals where that point swing really matters.
Afterall, it was beating Saints and West Ham that won us the League last time. Not putting away the teams at the bottom.
Picking Milwall/Boro as where we shouldn't have slipped up are strange choices as they are on the fringes of the play-offs and Milwall have barely lost to a top 6/7 side all season.
The Wycombe result could haunt us esp. given the nature of it but I don't think we would have won the following 3 games without it.
Everyone in the top 6 have dropped points where they shouldn't:
Norwich lost to Luton and Derby
Watford lost to Huddersfield and drew at Wycombe
Brentford lost to Coventry, drew twice with Derby
Swansea lost to Brum, Bristol City and Huddersfield
Barnsley lost to Luton, Sheff Wed and Huddersfield
Bournemouth lost twice to Wednesday, only took 1 point off Derby and 1 off Luton
So yes picking up more points against the strugglers would have helped but the points against those around you are almost worth more, esp. at this stage of the season.
Yeah but there's NO WAY Wednesday will beat Cardiff....
