Hi Nick, the Wolves fan.
Just because I'm pedantic - we lost 1-0 at Molineux and not 2-1 this season.
Erm..I'm worried at seeing the number of people predicting us to finish in that 2nd automatic promotion space. People look at the Sheff Utd form, and they look at our results and they say there's only one outcome. There are more factors to consider.
1. The Sheff Utd slump has gone on 8 games or so now, and so it is bound to arrest itself sooner or later... and their run in is not the hardest..
2. Whilst we are unbeaten in a few.. and we have produced some good displays.. we have been lucky against mediocre teams... Derby, Leicester, Norwich and we wouldn't have beaten Watford had they not had 2 players sent off.
3. We are still 5 points behind them - we have to go to Bramall Lane, The Ricoh Arena, The KC Stadium (yorkshire derby) and Deepdale. We also have Reading and Palace to come to Elland Road
4. Watford. They are playing well at home, effective away from home - no pressure on them hence "We're going up but noone believes us, we're going up but noone believes us" chants from their fans at Reading.
I predict we will finish 4th... but obviously I hope and pray that I am totally wrong.
As for the playoffs - I reckon Us, Watford, Palace and then either Wolves or Preston. Wolves seem to be coming into form just at the right time and if they can get a result this weekend at Reading ... it will definitely give them confidence (not the manager he thinks the team are already God's gift to football)
I'll take a draw at the Ricoh this weekend, come on Norwich and Southampton.
^ Talk about being pessimistic! Thought our fans were bad...I keep talking to fellow Blades and the way they are carrying on, we are 2nd from bottom!
Leeds have got a good chance of making 2nd...but so have we along with Watford.
Town are out of promotion contention now for another season after that defeat to Preston. Tbh, it would have been great to see them sneak in the playoffs as oppose to falling in it whilst being in the top two for most of the season.
I hope Brighton finally manage to pull off a win. We need it so badly.
At this rate I can see us playing "League 1" football next year.
Been there, done that, got the T-shirt....Twice.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH! F**king Boston!
Still possible for play offs though . . . . thanks to Barnet.
True, and it's appreciated. Northampton and Rovers lost too, which is always good.
Normally, I'm a pessimist. And that hasn't changed. But I still say good point gained as opposed to two dropped at the Ricoh yesterday. If you had given me us to draw and Sheff U to lose I woulda taken it beforehand.
I will be praying for a Saints victory tomorrow night - Watford will leapfrog us into 3rd if they win. After every game, our next game is our biggest game of the season. The "game in hand" against Palace is on Tuesday night. It's important. Had another look at the run-ins. Sheff U have the easiest run in.
As for the relegation fight, Brighton are doomed (sorry Oziris) but at this stage of the season with Sheff Wed pulling off a shock win at home to Preston.. wins and nothing other than wins will save you. Having said that... it's not over till its over. Except in the case of Reading and promotion... that's not over.. but, really it is over.
Very important game tonight Southampton v Watford, should Watford win it will tighten things up more for the Promotion battle.
