I'll do a Lanzo and start a new discussion.

We may be comfortably placed in mid-table at present BUT:
1) we have 8 home games left. FIVE of those are against the so-called big six. How many home points can we realistically expect to get from Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal and Man U?
2) the other 3 games are against, Burnley, Leeds and Watford - all must win games IMO.
3) I don't see us getting enough home points to be safe so we must start winning some away games and with just 1 win out of 10 so far that looks a tall order. However, fortunately, we have played ALL the big six away so we co0uld manage it.
Thoughts?

15? Fortune favours the brave etc etc. How many points do you realistically think we will get from those five games? 5? 6?

I say this to myself every other week, and I always live in hope.

Shall I start another thread asking “ when do you think we will win away again?”

We will get points from the big 6 at home somwhere along the line. We have 2 against Watford, plus Newcastle and Norwich away. Dont panic. How many points realistically do you think the current bottom 4 will get? They are terrible week in and week out. They only have 17 or 18 games left including the top 6.

We will only finish 13th, 14th, or 15th with the squad we have. No decent striker, no holding midfielder, no decent right back. A few more upgrades in the Summer and go again.

In reality we need to start bringing through some 18+ youths to the squad. Mitchell came from closure of the Brentford academy, other than that Wilf and Wan Bisaka are the only 2 since we have been back in the Prem - very poor return all things considered.

I have been to a few away games this season and the only one we have lost is Leeds, and to be honest we should not have lost there either. I get what you are saying but if we can start converting a few of those unfortunate draws into wins we will be doing very nicely indeed.

PV is putting things together. I expect that the matches will come when all the guidance he is giving produces results - hopefully a couple of winning runs. Two runs of four is 24 points - which will do.

Any ideas when the runs might start?

Nor Wilf. Since prem it’s Wan and Mitchell.
But give the new academy a chance to develop and we may become the biggest converge of youth to prem in the league.

When you eat your next dodgy meal (sorry Heathman - couldn't resist this riposte)
