At first, I thought that West Ham had got an impressive result at Wolves, and that they have to be counted on for the top four race. But looking at the stats from this game, I realise that it had more to do with luck than anything else, and that Wolves thoroughly deserved at least a point from this.

So, not too concerned with them. They’ll not be able to sustain any kind of sustained winning run over the last eight games. They might also have lost Antonio for a while.

Declan Rice is also out for a month.

Yep Lingaard is having a purple patch once they dries up they will decline… Not worried about them.

Chelsea are our direct threat, just need them to get beat by City, a draw with West Ham would be great also.

I suspect it’ll be all about retaining focus on our own results in the dressing room.

From our (fans) perspective, It’s all there for the taking now looking at the remaining fixtures for all the teams.

As far as I’m concerned, if we finish the the Top 4, it will be deserved. If we don’t then it wasn’t deserved - but either way, so far it’s been a pig of a season, and after 4-5 months of football misery, I am excited about it all again. That can only be a good thing.

I have decided we should just win our next 13 matches.

The rest will take care of itself.

Odds three months ago on J-Lingz’s current form??

1000-1, I reckon.

Biggest comeback since Lazarus.

Next couple of weeks will be crucial. Most of the bunch have European and/or Cup fixtures in addition to their league games.

Two more wins please.

Then we can go to Old Toilett and a point would be ‘ok’.

What result do we want from the Leicester v WHU match tomorrow?

Draw, we will chase down those mangy foxes. Bodgers likes a good bottle.

The way the season going we probably will be needing 6 wins out of 7 games to end up in the Top4.

Still not feeling confident.

Draw as they lose a point between them. Or WH win as a distant second. A “hard” game would be favourable with several reds and no serious injuries.

Anything but a Leicester win.

I reckon we have to finish above both of these because Chelsea look too strong atm.

What strikes me about Leicester’s run-in is they have 3 ‘big 6’ teams right at the end of the season when all 3 might have already qualified (mancs and Chelsea) or be out of the race (Spurs). If it was the other way round and they were their next 3 games I’d have us firm favourites for top 4.

Chelsea lost to WBA as my Dad keeps saying!

They’re losing all of these if it meant stopping us from getting top 4 (whether they finish top 4 or not being irrelevant to them) ?

ManU will surely end up second.

Spurs out of the Top4 race.

Everton have two games in hand. Might win tomorrow against Brighton but after that they play Spurs and Arsenal - come on North London :grimacing:

As things stand it’s 4 Teams (+Everton) fighting for two spots.
