    It looks like Leeds are going to go up automatically. They can put some daylight between them and 3rd with a win against Swansea.

    I'm not sure on Brentford and WBA. Feel like WBA have the better squad but they have a mistake in them. They have similar level run-ins over the four games but I can't see Brentford's momentum getting slowed.

    Fulham are minimum playoffs and I think with only 9pts left to play for, there's not enough of a swing to hold back Brentford and unseat either WBA/Leeds.

    A win for us tomorrow would probably put us a point or two away from playoff assurance. 5th is probably a really good shout for us to finish the season barring a total collapse or some great form. We could only really get better GD than Fulham and they're 8pts off us.

    As for 6th, honestly seems like no-one wants it. Cardiff lost. Can't see Derby, Blackburn or Swansea winning over the weekend. Tomorrow is a massive game for Millwall, a win for them would likely take them 8th and 2pts off Cardiff.

    Honestly even Bristol City could get right back into it with a win.

    I don't particularly want us to finish in the play-offs, whoever finishes 6th gets the pleasure of being humiliated by Brentford twice.

    Why do we never get goals like that Benrahma one...

    Peach of a goal. It’s a delight to see this kid week in week out at home. Just hope we can keep hold of him tbh.

    I was actually talking about the the one where Hamer jumped over the ball.

    Don’t know why this game has his sights set low, obviously Pep is the main target followed by Klopp

    If that's what he'd do for Farke, imagine what he'd be prepared to do for those two :flushed: I'm liking his hot take that Farke will get sacked too then assuming he'd be interested in managing a league 1 side.

    The Charlton Twitter admin is bit... interesting shall we say. Pretty sure he said something to the effect of they deserved more against us in the 0-0 we had against them in January when Hector missed an absolute sitter and they had 1 Shot on Target in the whole game.

    Do find it a bit funny that conceivably Brentford's chances of Autos rest on us.

    Motivation for you, I'd rather play West Brom in the playoff final than Brentford

    Optimistic of you to assume we won't get 🎃🎃🎃🎃 housed 1-0 on Aggregate by Forest in the Semi's.

    You're already on Holiday. At least we're still playing for something(ish). 7 Points clear of Forest, so we're pretty much guaranteed a Home Leg second so try and win 3 out of 3 and see where it puts us.

    Bristol City were a lot better than they've been described in here. We had our chances but cant argue at all today well beaten by a much better side.

    It really is the hope that kills you. Frustrating how we could've been well established in the playoff mix, and I really believe we would've been without the break.

    If I'm honest though, I'd really rather not get into the playoffs this season. I know it could and likely will be our only chance for a good few seasons, but it's just pointless without the fans. Be seething if we went up via Wembley, not being able to watch it, and then doing a Norwich next season.

    Honestly mate we haven’t played attacking, on the ground football like that in 18 months. Absolute night and day difference to what’s been served up for the last 2 seasons.

    I can’t believe how bad Boro were defensively. Third goal was absolutely criminal and if we hadn’t got it then I’d have not fancied us to hang on at 2-1.

    It was shocking from Fry cant believe there were rumours of 20m bids for him we definitely missed our chance to get decent money for him.

    At least we don't have to deal with VAR if/when we don't get promoted.
