Christ, some of you lot are a miserable bunch. If you had free entry into a strippers I'm sure you'd be complaining that the tits would be too small or the beer too warm (more likely, no craft ale)
Newcastles next 3 games are away to us, Huddersfield and Reading. Yes we can't control what they do but it's a proper bitch fixture list and is crunch time with regards to whether we finish 1st or 2nd or continue to look over our shoulder at Huddersfield. I'm glad CH is instilling the one game at a time mentality in the playrs but as fans we don't need to subscribe to all that bollocks. It's time to start believing.
Only thing that gives me a bit hope is our away record, even though we don't really play great we seem good at picking points up and quite solid. The pressure of playing at home is what has let us down. If we concede first you'll blow us away though, was impressed with you yesterday. Would take 5 points in the next three but anything less would be a worry unless we beat Huddersfield.
I really want Newcastle to beat Huddersfield ( while we are beating Forest at the same time ).
I was sent this earlier. It's a table of the remaining fixtures for each club, based on the average points already gained by opponents to be faced.
It's good for us. Less so for Newcastle.

I'm not suggesting it's a bad loss rate.
It is entirely relevant in the context of this thread, though. The OP is suggesting we'll have it easy because we're only playing one more team in the top 7 after Newcastle, I'd say it was entirely relevant that while we have only a few losses, half of them are against the teams the OP is suggesting won't trouble us. That 20 of our dropped points have come against teams in the bottom 17.
We can't assume that because they're not top 7 they won't trouble us. There will be teams fighting for every last point in their outside chance efforts to sneak into the play offs, or to get out of relegation trouble. Then we get into the idea of pressure. Teams that are not in the running for play offs and not looking over their shoulder will be able to relax and just play without pressure of expectation.
