    3 more wins should be enough to stay up?

    Cant see the bottom 6 (18 points or less) all picking up 20 points or more from their last 17 games so realistically 35 points is probably enough this year to survive... we dont have that many winnable games in the next few months (fulham away, hudds and then cardiff at home possible) and assuming a few draws elsewhere so by end of march we should be sitting pretty. we're not going to overtake watford or probably bmth so will settle for finishing where we are now in 13th this year...onwards and upwards next year..
    Potter or Potty? Time will tell

      As things stand, 3 wins - 34/35 points - is also my target for survival based on my current points projections for the bottom teams.

      Can see it being even less. Last year’s 18th position only got 33 points, and I can see at least one of those teams on 16-18 points having a complete disaster of a second half season where they only pick up 12-13 points - my money would be on Cardiff and Newcastle.

      3 wins, or 2 wins and a couple of draws, will be enough. With 7 home and 4 away games against non-top 6, it would require a monumental loss of form and injury bad luck from here - our current odds are 50-1!

      I'm not even bothering with relegation stats this season because we're nowhere near bad enough to be going down. We are in the same bracket as Bournemouth, Watford and West Ham as absolutely nailed on to be here next season but with equally very little chance of finishing in the top 8.

      My concern, if I have any, is that come 2nd March we could have played 7 games and picked up only a few points.
      So come those easy* games of Hudds, Cardiff, Saints, B'Muff and Newcastle all at home, we may be shell shocked and totally out of form.
      *no such thing.

      Next few MONTHS ? We've got Watford and Burnley at home and Fulham away in our next 5 games. Why aren't those games winnable ?

      Agreed. So let's play a full-strength team in the Cup, pick up a few injuries and try and make the rest of the season a bit interesting instead of just a procession of glorified near-friendlies!
