    Finishing 1st or 2nd is not important avoiding finishing 3rd is, so let Newcastle beat Huddersfield
    So you don't mind finishing 4th, 5th or 6th or wherever then ?

      "Assuming...." threads have become this season's 'points required' threads and every bit as tedious and pointless.

      Can we just beat Forest, and then actually not give a toss about anything else except beating Rotherham, Derby, Leeds........

      I think Brighton and Huddersfiled will finish in the top 2 and Newcastle in 3rd. Over their next 8 matches between now and 14th April Newcastle have to play Huddersfield (A), Reading (A), Fulham (H), Sheff Wed (A) and Leeds (H). I think it is very likely they will drop a lot more points than us and Huddersfield over that period.

      WTF? WHY do you think im a PALARCE troll u assh*le. WHAT PRECISELY IS WRONG ABOUT MY POST?
      Nothing as far as I can see. Maybe assume was the wrong word but that's all.

      For me, I want a draw, IF we beat forest, I would be happy to be 8 clear of Huddersfield and level on points with Newcastle.

      It seems to be the cool thing on here to take the fun out of speculating.

      "One game at a time".
      "Defeat nailed on".
      And crap like that.

      If you don't want to speculate on things then why bother to open a thread which is crystal f***ing clear in it's thread title that it's a speculative thread. Not exactly rocket science is it!

      In reply to the original theme, I'd prefer the draw, not because it keeps us closer to Newcastle, but both teams drop 2 points and gives us extra 'safety' over both teams in the run-in.

      However, if we don't win, then I'd want a Newcastle win. Auto is much more important than the title (stating the bleeding obvious I know).

      At 5pm on Saturday we would be 1 point ahead of Newcastle and 9 ahead of Huddersfield (subject to their game in hand) so would your rather:
      Have Newcastle thrash them and go back to the top thus keeping our points gap or
      Have Huddersfield win so we stay top and would still be 6 points ahead of them or
      Draw. The draw would be enough for Newcastle go back to the top on GD but still leave Huddersfield 8 adrift...

      I prefer the long game and would rather Newcastle thrash the Hudds..Top is not as important as promotion
      Come back at 4.45 pm on Saturday

      I can't see anything else but a draw between Newcastle and Hudds, both teams with throw everything at it and if there is a victory it might be by another fluky goal.

      Now the team are finally on the finishing straight, if they want promotion you have to assume they'll win games like Forest away.

      Providing we win then best result would be a draw but doesn't really matter if Huddersfield win Newcastle will be under far more pressure as they are expected to romp the league
