3 games to go

Post by tonyp »

With Posh (presently on 65 points) having 12 games to play, in my opinion, we have to get at least 24 points to be sure of automatic promotion. This would give us 89 points.
Hull (presently on 68 points)have only 10 games left and they might get 20 points putting them on 88.
Sunderland (presently on 63 points) are setting a cracking pace and could well get at least 27 from their remaining 12 games putting them on 90 points.
Doncaster (presently on 56 points) might get 26 from their 13 remaining games putting them on 82 points.
I don't see any of the others worrying us.
This is how I see the final six-
1. Sunderland
2. Posh
3. Hull
4. Doncaster
5. Lincoln
6. Gillingham

And Gillingham will win the play-offs.

Any other guesses?

I think Sunderland will win the league quite easily. They have a brilliant manager now & with a new owner could push for promotion again next year. Far too powerful.

That leaves us & Hull imo. Who will break first, Fergie or McCann?

It's going to be an interesting, if nail biting end to the season. There are still 12 games to go, six at home and six away; 36, yes 36 points to play for still!!

Twenty-four points would leave us on 89 - is that enough for automatics?

If so, we need to win six, draw six - averaging two points a game.

As you say, so nail-biting it's squeaky bum time.

If we only get to 89 points we may well throw it away. At the moment it is in our own hands.

Now that we have only 9 games left I think the final six might be
1. Sunderland
2. Posh
3. Hull
4. Blackpool
5. Lincoln
6. Portsmouth
Hull to win the play-offs.
Any other guesses?

I think Sunderland are due a bad run ...they are unbeaten in 12 in all competitions so I’m thinking we beat them Easter Sunday and then they start stuttering ,well for a few games anyways .

Let’s hope so, would be hilarious to see them stuck in League one for a 4th season, they’re one of those clubs the media love and have the most deluded and fickle fans in the country who seem to think they should be in the Champions League every season just because they have a nice stadium, albeit one full of bird **** on seats and restricted views.

I don't write many here but I carry on to follow club's results. I think POSH could make a great step if they win next two games front Fleetwood and Sunderland.
The difficulty is that no team have the same matchs played as the others. We have one less than Hull but one more than Sunderland...
The victory on Accrington is very important on this way. I hope, that victory will be a new start for a new positive run... The big aim on these two next matchs is to win in Fleetwood and doesn't loose front of Sunderland. Sunderland is on an impressive unbeaten run of 12 matchs... Ever doesn't lose will be a good thing to keep them on a good distance. But I think Poshies have a great abilities to defeat them.
Unfortunatelly, I cannot watch matchs here in France (Yes I'm a french fan haha), but I watch highlights on YouTube and read press on the club.

The only fact I don't understand, and for moment was not big problem hopeflly, is the lack of turnover from Fergie on the starting line-up... Guys as Reed, Hamilton, Eisa deserve to play more no ?
On Eisa, he has big difficulties for two years now... Very strange from him.

Well, I hope the best for the club and I hope they will sucess on their goal to get up promotion on the end of this season because they deserve and they show big mental and big defence.

I’m pretty sure you can, if many of our fans can watch in Poland, South Africa, Australia and USA can watch on iFollow for £10 per game or £120 for a season ticket for games home and away. The last time I was on holiday in Spain I watched by the swimming pool on my iPad.

I think I will buy a season ticket for next season in Championship :clap: :comeon:

What do you think about the team ? Clarke-Harris is he better than Toney or it's too hard to compare both ?

I think Posh can be able to keep JCH in the team next season if they are promoted in Championship League..

Impossible to compare but I personally thought Toney was better. He has proved himself at a higher level too

Gillingham are now in the top six after beating Wigan.
We have to hope that the play-offs don't include Posh and Gillingham.
