    Are people still not getting @Giraffe's tables? Obviously, all of the top 3 won't go unbeaten until the end of season (highly unlikely anyway). It is just using a formula based on who each team is facing.
    We know what it means.If the results and final table look anything close to most of us will be surprised. Happy but surprised.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

    51,700 v Burnley last game in 1978/79. 4,005 v Wimbledon in 1984. Same division. I think this shows the real plastics.

      It is, although despite claims of accuracy, even @Giraffe admits that the points totals are too high, and that has been quite clearly borne out by what has transpired thus far.

      Of course the points totals are exaggerated but the positions aren't as it is the same formula for all 3. So if at the end of the season, we are top as predicted, I will be very happy.

      We are pretty dire away from home in 2017 so no chance of that point total.

      We need 92 points. Would be handy if Norwich match Sheffield w and Fulham result though in the next game.

      As I've said from the beginning, its not about the points total, which I always said was over inflated, it is about the GAP. That's the theory behind these kind of predictions because what it was highlighting was the difficulty of the run in for each team and nothing else.

      By way of a quick update, this is the position after the weekends game, with Huddersfield now the obvious losers, having failed to take 3 points in a game they should have done. Reading won a game they should have drawn and are now predicted to level up with Huddersfield at the end of the season. We are still edging Newcastle by a point.

      Remember the set logic of prediction is:

      If at home to top ten - draw
      If at home to anyone else - win

      If away to top twelve - draw
      If away to anyone else - win

      PROMOTION sealed with a win at home to Wigan.
      TITLE is won with a final day nail biter draw at VIlla.

      I'd also add, from the original prediction at this stage the table should be:

      Newcastle 82 (+1 from actual)
      Brighton 81 (+1 from actual)
      Huddersfield 76 (+5 from actual)

      So pretty accurate for ourselves and Toon and Huddersfield clearly let down by Saturday's disaster!

      And in other news, Fulham look a very good bet to reach the play offs, with MASSIVE completely falling on their arses!!!

      Massive have secured a whopping FIVE points from their last 7 games (W1 D2 L4)
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      Incredible choking, on an almost unprecedented level. Really hard to believe given they have a million fans at each game, home and away.
