I've no idea. It bothers me that we play 3 big clubs out of 6, as they are less likely to be impacted by injuries. I guess we'll need to target points in home games against the two small clubs and the away game at the tiny club that have never been in Europe.

And I see you've excluded 17 points from your selection, which is a pity for all the NSC Colin Hunt office joker types.

And looking at those fixtures, Arsenal is clearly going to be free hit as it is sandwiched between very winnable PL games and a crucial Europa league game.

I'm not sure whether you're still including Spuds as a 'big' club, considering their slide down the league, but they have quite a few players out, I seem to remember.

I did count them as a big club as they are one of the teams likely to have a bigger squad. Whether they are actually a big club is questionable, but they probably are. Even though they've been uncompetitive at the top for decades, they have a huge stadium (and the best in the country) and have pretty much sold out every league game for about 30 years.

Not unlike Feyenoord or Sporting really, both of whom I consider big clubs.

really hard to predict, but the tracker says six, anything higher than that would be a bonus I think considering our injury list, I cant see us keeping up with the European tracker unfortunatly.

Think we may have 2w 2d 2l meaning 8 points.
I am hoping for more and first thought was to vote for 10 but the injury crisis and fixture pile up caused me to reconsider.
Of all the 18 possible totals only one can be achieved in 3 different ways.

I've gone for 10 points (3W 1D 2L).
After December, we will be at the halfway point of the Premier League season.
If we can accumulate 30+ points before the new year, it would put us in a good position where we could possibly qualify for Europe again.
