    That is when the Potter magic will kick in, that's when the Psychology MA comes into affect and BHAFC the musical named '50 points and flying' premiers at the Dome.

      No away wins whatsoever - not even for an unlikely forecast of fixtures that qualifies us for Europe? Was this the same last season?

      This is quite interesting, especially as I did the first ever "Stay-Up - O - Meter" on here many years back.

      The thing is, there is a far, far simpler way of tracking survival and that is to average a point-per-game. So long as we have more or an equal number of points per matches played then we are on track to stay-up.

      Although that would only show what we require on average, taking no account of those games we are more likely to pick up points from, and those, where to be honest, its likely we wont. The beauty of Giraffe's tracker is that it gives a pretty good indication of how we are doing in relation to where we could reasonably expect to be at any given point of the season. Although only in its third season this tracker has become to "go to page" after every match.

      Well done, the first award for not reading the rationale of the tracker. More will follow no doubt

      Yes it's the same as last season.

      This tracker thing is what keeps me sane (and hopefully bone dry) all season.

      Well, we certainly didn't start too well at Watford last season, so a point after one game already looks VERY optimistic
      (Does look fairly straight forward when broken down like this...)
      How long? Not long

      Kudos on totally missing the point.

      But you cannot guarantee points against any clubs, so earmarking where you will your points from is a little strange. I understand that you can write off wins against the "Big 6", especially away from home but the rest can depend on many factors.

      Since Watford have been promoted they have been favourites for relegation every season, so after our comfortable survival the 2 years ago, I bet 99% of Albion fans would have been confident going to Vicarage Road at the start of last season...But we were turd and got beat. Also, Fulham who finished second-bottom we only took 1 point from and 3rd bottom Cardiff we got zero points out of. So it is difficult to judge who we will and won't beat.

      So I like the idea of averaging a point-per-game as it takes out the worry of who we are playing so long as we are hitting the average we know we will be fine.

      Far better way is your way, 1.05 points a match for 40 points is easier to track than predicting which games we may get points from
