    See below. An easy ready to use "we are staying up" tracker.

    In short we all know we are going to get hammered by the big teams, we therefore have to look at those as "just for fun".

    Basically to stay up we need 40 points (probably less, but bare with it).

    The easiest way is to beat all of the worst ten teams from last year at home and draw with them away.

    If we do that we will have 40 points. I am including Newcastle and Huddersfield in the bottom 10 by the way.

    If you lose all of the others you end up with the following results.

    Bedwetting on NSC as we only get 9 points from our first 10 games.
    Talk of Europe when we hit 23 points in mid December.
    Talk of relegation gain by the end of January.
    Then NSC goes crazy after we reach 38 point with five matches to go
    NSC bedwets again as we take just 2 points from the final five matches, players on the beach, not trying etc etc etc etc etc.

    As long as are close or ahead of this tracker, it will have been have a good season. Enjoy!!
    Top stuff Giraffe, although I do see us beating both Bournemouth at home and doing the double over Palace, so we will be home comfortably 👍

      Not until Sky and BT get to grips with us. We're guaranteed at least one.
      What about us or NUFC on the first Sunday? Not being biased or anything... but both look the most exciting I reckon.

      Here we go, the first five game update.
      Reminder the assumption is we have to beat all of last years bottom 10 (10th to 17th, plus Newcastle and Huddersfield) at home, and draw with them away. Nothing from the other games.

      In short we are only point down (the failure to get a draw at Leicester). Bournemouth away was actually a "bonus" game where nothing was expected as they finished 9th last season.

      Dividing the five games up into "required" and "bonus", we are 4 points out of 5 on the "required", and 0 points out of 0 on the "bonus". Suspect we are going to need a few bonus points to make up for the shortfall in the required.

      Worth noting that the tracker suggests we only need 9 points out of the first 10 games. So no bed wetting yet please. 23 points by Christmas and the half way mark is needed as the second half of the season is tougher.

      So, in summary, Newcastle is 'MUST WIN'.

      Big Meltdown if we don't.

      Bit worried that it's against Newcastle where tracker loses track.
      "Unemployments rising in the Chigley end of town.
      And it's spreading like pneumonia.
      Doesn't look like going down"
