Next 3 games

Recommended Posts

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

At least you’ve now confirmed the intent of the thread. 
There was me opening this one up thinking people might be chatting about the upcoming tough and exciting matches, top end championship fayre, but actually no, it’s just YET ANOTHER thread to find a new way to slag off LJ. 
Well done sir. I’ll await the next thinly disguised thread in about, oh I dunno, 15 minutes!

Sorry but how do you "chat about the up coming 3 games" and not mention our manager and or player selection? are we now only to speak of the opposition managers/players as our own are not to be questioned.

Do you not think it was a mistake not to start our new goalscoring forward on Friday for instance, after his run out v QPR?

Yes I do think that was a mistake. 
And I said so on the “Wells should’ve started” thread. 
Absolutely fine to discuss team selections vs upcoming opposition but for many it’s just another excuse to launch their latest tirade against the manager. 
 

Your opening post contained 6 paragraphs. 
4 of them had a sneaky side-swipe at the manager. 
Then the last one asks for “civil replies only”. 
 

Just start a thread that says “I want the manager out, discuss” and then we can perhaps have a forum back that doesn’t have 17 different LJ out threads in different disguises.

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:

 

I think the only prediction anyone can make is that anything could happen, 3 losses, 3 wins, 3 draws, who knows!  I’d take 3 draws now if I could

I mentioned our manager twice, both questions i.m.o and not "sneaky side swipes" but you are entitled to your view as I and others are likewise.

We are also entitled to express those views on this forum in as many threads/posts as we wish. This thread is different in many respects to other "LJ Out threads" as its now that our squad seems to have enough depth and quality to make that final push needed or indeed fall away from a good position. As these 3 difficult games are now upon us it seemed a good time also to see how others felt our chances were in them and how our manager would set up/select his teams in them.

I dont see it as "slagging off" or "side swiping" just questioning, anyway not going around and around again.........but do watch out for/or avoid, my next thread coming to this forum soon....probably early March :o

I'd take 4 points from that. Should leave payoffs still in sight. To compete in every game is what's expected. 

I know the championship is always fine margins, but I swear its even tighter this season. Crying out for a team to have a good run in to the playoffs. Could well be us. Just need to time our streek well

Minimum 4pts from the next 3 games just to keep in touch but after seeing the Birmingham shambles and against much better well drilled sides I'll be amazed if we get anything in February at all or away at Millwall for that matter. Hope I'm eating my words come the start of March but I very much doubt that unfortunately.

This is where I'm at. Derby will be well up for it and a win Wednesday will see them edge closer to the play off picture. 

 

WBA and Leeds, a lot gets said about the way they play and weaknesses there that can be exploited. However the table doesn't lie according to the LJ in brigade, which to be fair it doesn't. It doesn't lie for the teams above us either and they're above us for a reason, they're better than us.

 

I'm not entirely LJ in or LJ out but cant help but feel like these 3 games will shape our season. We've got a past history with not so poor results against top teams derailing us (Norwich 3-2 last year, wolves 2-1 year before). And I'll live in hope that no matter the results over the next 3 games we will see ourselves improve our league position again for another year, which in many ways a success. Do I have faith in it though? Not really.

Derby are the chance we have imo, but we will have to go for it for 90mins and LJ will have to make changes from his last starting 11 starting Wells and sitting Weimann on the bench being the first one of quite a few. Tomorrow could set the tone for the next 3 games, the month and maybe the rest of our season.

I actually think we have the players to beat Derby but we have to play the right ones and in the right formation, let them worry about us and lets get in their faces, sh1t or bust as they say and we could take all the 3 points.:pray:

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

More predictions; The fall away will continue and we will soon be mid-table; LJ will still be here this time next season, round and around we go.
