Next 3 games

Recommended Posts

 We know they are Derby, Leeds and WBA, a simple question really who thinks after them we will be sitting mid to bottom half of the table?

If Lee is the manager some think then surely we will be much closer to the top 2 after these next 3 games.

A defining month of the season when we either fall away or stay with the promo pack with the likes of Derby/Cardiff are moving up.

We have an inform striker now  and have strengthened the middle and defence, over to you then Lee go for it or not?

With only 6pts between mid table/top two this month could go either way, recent years say a fall away but it would be nice to buck the trend.

Derby are on a good run of form with England's all time goal scorer pulling the strings, so that will be tough, especially coupled with our poor home form.

Still, there is the potential for City to win.  So I'm going to be optimistic and say 2-1 to City.

I expect Leeds to raise their game again soon, and it will probably start against us.  Leeds to win 3-1.

WBA at home, I would hope for at least a point. 

I'm going for 4 points.

Whatever happens, we'll still be fighting for the top six come the end of the season.  For me, not a realistic chance of top two though.

I’m not into predictions but I’d be happy enough with 5 or 6 points from the next 3 games - and you never know we might win all three or even lose all three.............:dunno:

Every time someone says "How many points over the next * matches" someone comes out with a non-viable amount of points...

On paper you could make a case for us losing all 3. Derby are under performing but form starting to turn, Leeds are in bad form but we always struggle against them, West Brom have won their last couple and are clearly a very strong side when on form.

I think 4 points would be a decent return really, we have to target beating Derby. Even a draw would put the pressure on for Leeds and WBA.

Preston in that time play Stoke away, then Millwall and Hull at home.

We need to match up best we can with their results.

Thats us in a nutshell really, on paper we would be lucky to get 2/3pts but would not suprise me if we did win all 3.

It cannot be doubted though that we again are in with a chance of play offs, but will more than likely fall away from now on.

We have besides those 3 games yet still to face Cardiff/Swansea/Forest/Millwall/Huddersfield and Preston so it is definately in our hands if we want it enough.:dunno:

Derby; tough nut to crack, with there new talisman and good forward play;  still 3pts to us as we have to smash em

Leeds; are away to Brentford Tuesday so will be up for it at home Sat and be desperate to make a mark and take 3pts,; us 0 pts

WBA; steamrollered by the Albion, hope for a miracle; 0pts

3games= 3 points

We'll play shite football those two home games and i'd be very happy with 2 points from those. I do fancy us to give Leeds a good game, tough one to predict.

I just wanna see us play good football at home, which has been a bit of an ask this season.

Derby 3-1 (watch LJ switch to an attacking 442 like he did vs Huddersfield)

Leeds 0-0 

WBA 0-2 (LJ keeps 442 and we get overrun in midfield)

I can't see us taking any points from the next three and what concerns me more is of our last 15 games we have have to play every team in the top half of the league with the exception of Brentford.

Although some of the teams in the top half might not be there by the time we play them...

IMO Wednesday's game is massive. If we can avoid defeat and fingers crossed get all 3 points we'll go to Leeds with our peckers up.

I'd love to see a 3 5 2 Wednesday with a start for Henriksen (even if he only manages 45 mins) with Fam and Nahki up top.

If we lose Wednesday, then I can see us getting zero points from the next 3 :sad26:

Anyone have any idea why the Highlights (Lowlights?) of Friday nights game is not on the main BCFC site?   After the QPR game the 9 minure highlights package was up the next day.  Are they too embarassed to display it?......I have never known it to take so long for game highlights to appear on the site.

“I’m not into predictions” but I’ll offer up 4 predictions by the end of the sentence 🤣

Robbored predicts either 0, 5, 6 or 9 points.

Not very insightful but we could win all 3 and could possibly lose all 3.

I'm a City fan and can genuinely say I haven't got the foggiest how we'll do!

Hardly surprising. I mean before the Birmingham game it seemed like everything would be in our favour; home advantage, in a winning streak, new goalscorer, impressive loans... nope, we get soundly beaten.

So what should our expectations be now? Literally anything could happen.

There weren't any highlights!

They gave us a goal start and then outplayed us for 89 minutes.

I think this will be the start of our decline down mid -table to be honest. Happy to be proven wrong but i just can’t see it..

Even though Derby are on a good run of form, they’re in the bottom 3 for their away results this season. I’d like to think we can come up on top against them! We’re usually a reactive side aswell, especially after Friday’s result. Win 

Leeds (A) are a bogey side to us. Who also happen to be a very good side. 0 points.

West Brom (H) Loss I think. They tore us apart at their place.

Can't predict results with this team this season so instead I'll predict performances.

Derby: similar to Birmingham. We are allowed more of the ball by a well-organised and disciplined opposition. Our midfield are static and lifeless and although we get 15 shots off they are generally poor quality. Of those 15 shots, three are really good shots on target and it's a flip of the coin if they go in. At the other end Bentley saves two thunderous Rooney shots as Derby pepper our goal from range. Bentley is named MOTM regardless of the result.

Leeds: We're battered. It's relentless. Leeds take 25 shots to our 10, but those 10 are decent chances. Our midfield screen is bypassed with ease, exposing the defence and leading to a few heart-stopping defensive errors. When we do manage to break Eliasson does find some joy down the flanks and a few crosses find their target and give our fans some hope.

WBA: This will be carnage imo. They rinsed us at their place and at AG will toy with us. Just watch the Brentford game from last month for some idea of how we'll perform in this one.

Typical! We should be targeting at least 12 points from the next three games - that could put us 3 points clear at the top! Typical of some on here no ambition. About time we went for it.

Absolute worst case scenario is we'll be 13th after this batch of 3 games and that involves us losing all 3 and every single team below us producing better form then they have for the last 5 games. Even if we got no points I'd still expect us to be top 10

Disagree I think Brentford are the best footballing side in the league by a distance, West Brom are a good side and well organised.

Isn’t 13th the lowest we could possibly be, even if we lose all 3 games and all the teams below us win all 3 (doubt that’s even possible, but can’t be bothered to look into it)

It’s not been an easy ride being a City fan, wouldn’t it be nice, to at least have some idea of how the team will play next game!

mid to bottom half is 12th or 13th, Derby are 13th; 7 points behind us; as for the rest... who knows:dunno:

I think you would prefer I looked the other way and we got all 9points from the next 3games scoring plus 5 or 6 in each game and chased WBA down who will lose their next 3 in the process. 🤔

Point of this thread is to find out who has hopes of LJ galvanising our undoubted talented team into a serious threat over the next few games and who thinks it will be drop away into mid table time as we have done before.....often.

Our last game was a joke, starting from leaving one of the best strikers in this div on the bench to continuing with baffling subs and then blaming some players, he needs to improve Weds for sure, can start with AW on the bench

We will win all three games and be 3rd on goal difference.

If Wells and Henriksen play then I wouldn't be surprised if we did win all 3 games

Just have no idea what team will turn up which makes each match an emotional roller coaster

The penny will drop with LJ by Wednesday; to be fair I have it on good authority he has been pondering taking a risk at home for the last couple of years - have faith 👍🏻
