Top six predictions at end of season.

Recommended Posts

At the start of the season on a so called super computer the predictions were.

1- Leeds.

2- West Brom.

3- Fulham.

4- Cardiff. (As if)

5- Robins.

6- Notts Forest.

At todays date we have as follows.

1- West Brom ( who I think will take it away easy in the end )

2- Leeds.

3- Fulham.

4- Notts forest.

5- Brentford.

6- Robins.

so at this stage that’s 5 out of 6 in no particular order correct with the “super computer” predictions  except with Brentford coming in the top six and Cardiff dropping out.

I think it will come out more like this and appreciate others 

1- West Brom.

2- Robins ( yes that’s us )

3- Fulham.

4- Brentford.

5- Leeds.

6- Millwall ( expect them to come with a late surge and Notts forest coming in at 7th.

Think Forrest will finish top six , personally think there are three teams guaranteed to finish in the top six as things stand.

West Brom, Leeds & Brentford.

Agree on Forrest, wouldn’t be surprised to see us or Brentford drop out as we both have a recent history of going on poor runs - could be the year it changes for both of us though!

Honestly, the table at the moment and looking whose below us. We have a better squad than every single one. You could even argue a better player in every position. Top 6 is very achievable

I'd like to believe this. Problem is that I could only name a handful of players from those squads.

I think it is easy to underestimate other sides because we don't know enough about their players. At least that's true in my case. I watch a game and could only tell you how well (or not) our individuals played. Unless an opposition player stands out, or is well known, I usually just come away with a general impression of them as a side. I can rarely say how good individual players are from seeing them live once or twice a season.

I suspect a lot of fans are the same. I think this can lead to over estimating the ability of our players compared to other teams.

Sounds like a very probable scenario! Imagine if both teams need a win to make top 6. Head explode emoji doesn't do it justice...

Given PNE have been awarded more penalties than anyone else in the division I would be very nervous.

Haven't we forgotten Wayne Rooney's Derby County? They're always favourites fpr the play offs!

 

(Unless they're preparing for life in Division one with a 15 point deficit)!

Having seen a couple of Brentford’s games on the tele recently (as well as the thumping they gave us at home) I would heavily back them for top 2, possibly champions. They play some really exciting football and seem to have a huge amount of momentum behind them as well as some class acts in the first 11. 
 

As for us, history tells me we’ll miss out, but there’s a gut feeling after Saturday felt by myself and others I’ve spoken too that things feel different this year. What that means time will tell. 
 

1. West Brom

2. Brentford 

3. Fulham 

4. Leeds 

5. Bristol City 

6. Forest

On paper our squad looks strong, I still am slightly concerned that despite the clean sheets and wins we seem to defend a lot and don't create many clear cut chances. I think this is what people talk about when they discuss xg; not something I truly understand.

Saturday's goal was fantastic, but it was a moment of inspiration. Diedhiou had a couple of other chances that really he should have scored. Hopefully Wells can help with that.

We also have a tough run coming up but we have good momentum.

I think with the incomings top 6 has to be the expectation.

Tipster writing at the start of the season had us finish 2nd behind Fulham.....

https://www.oddschecker.com/tips/football/championship/20190730-the-championship-2019-20-betting-tips-predictions

Are Leeds going to bottle it again and carry on the poor form and are WBA going to carry on their bad form as well ? Leeds 7 points from the last 6 games and WBA 5 points. City got 15 points, catching up 8 and 10 points respectively.

I'm looking at the consistency of Fulham and thinking they'll make top 2 with one from Leeds or WBA.

Top 6 is a realistic target for City rather than an expectation.

Fulham

WBA

Leeds

City

Forest

Brentford

With half an eye on Derby.

Listening to the recent Going up, Going down podcast, they said based on XG and shot creation City have no right to be where we currently are and will likely plumet down the table soon. I'd love to disagree but it's not like we've dominated anyone for 90 minutes more than once or twice this season.

"They've" been saying that most of the season and we're still up there thanks to having the best shot/goal conversion rate in the division.

Always remember 1-0 to the Arsenal/City.

It's so close up the top end of the division, win Friday and we go third. I'm genuinely optimistic with a few big results we could sneak into the autos. We are now the in form team in the league (even if we did have to grind them out). Hopefully our signings can hit the ground running and give us more of a spark on the attacking end of the pitch, although in terms of goals we are fairly high in the division!

 

Think Johnson et al noticed that out defensive record wasnt great, so looked to strengthen that in the window with Benkovic and Henriksen being a solid midfielder (dont know to much about him).


On the other end of the pitch, Afobe was on grass in his boots working out on his insta the other day. Imagine he is aiming toward the middle of March to get back on the pitch!

Swansea instead of Cardiff.

Brentford instead of us (just).

I think we have a great chance of proving me wrong, but its a mad league and every remaining game could see us come unstuck.

Same probably for the teams around us, and of course our contenders won't fancy playing us either but that does look a pretty tough run in.

West Brom

Forest

Leeds

Fulham

City

Brentford

Can't see much change to the top 6 from here on in. Us and Forest recruited well in January which should see us both push on.

The crucial games for us are not against the top 6 but those in positions 6-10, Swansea, Millwall, PNE, Wednesday (and yes Derby to keep them pegged back).

I wasted a lot of time doing a score predictor (which is pretty pointless anyway at this stage of the season - with 192 separate games remaining 🙄) and the final table was pretty much identical to the table as it stands. So I am obviously incapable of independent thought, and was clearly just letting the current table influence me.

Derby beat Sheff W in the final but the EFL belatedly dock them points which drops them out of the top 6.

Johnson is then summoned to EFL HQ along with Bielsa, manager of the other losing semi-finalist, together with the managers of Brentford and Notts F.

Here they have to play the semi-finals and finals with Subutteo players covered live on TV by Sky.

In the lead up, Bielsa was caught peering through LJ's window at home watching him practice.  This led to dirty Leeds being disqualified and we had a bye to the final where we played Brentford.

With so much riding on the game there were a lot of accusations of cheating by both sides and the managers had many lectures on the difference between a nudge and a flick.

The game was decided by a bizarre goal where Brentford took a goal kick which bounced off one of their defenders and into the net.

And so City were back in the top flight.

I'm concerned about the optimism on here. Are you forgetting that we're trapped in a cycle of lose 5 out of 6, then win 5 out of 6, and repeat ad infinitum...?!

Related point, and hypothetical question for everyone else too: would you take a guaranteed 5th place now, or take the risk and go for top 2?

Still many variables to consider, suspensions, injuries and that good old Lady Luck that can make or break fortunes 

At this moment in time any of the top 6/7 could get an auto position and further down again for a play off spot

The next four games for us could determine our top 2 auto credentials with potential 6 pointers against WBA & Leeds

Just like no-one’s dominated us either.

I think after the Leeds and West Brom games we will have a good idea where we are going to finish. So that's four games time and if we manage to get 7 points from the next four I will be very happy considering how tight this league is!

That's what I meant about Millwall and Blackburn they were comfortable, just get the feeling we will lose to Leeds and help them out of a slump and West Brom we will see just not convinced with us as a home team hopefully the new signings will change that

Brentford will not get 39 points from their next 16 games. I doubt anyone will hit the two points per game mark. The one thing about the championship is you can't predict it.

I know I’m being pedantic, but Brentford, we were down to 10 men, and even then I didn’t think they dominated us.  Did they have another gear or two? Yep, but I thought be battled away.

I don’t feel MIllwall dominated us at all, played better? Yes, but not dominated.  Blackburn (along with QPR’ on Saturday) are the only games I’ve missed watching.

But all subjective, so no probs.
