Spurs GD: +30
Woolwich GD: +26
Chelsea GD: +21
United GD: +19

Not unthinkable that the goal difference will play a role in the end.
Yep I agree.

9 points gives us +3 goals minimum.

City is a likely loss if we are being honest and then it's 3 wins from 4 games and not losing heavily if we lose another.

Win 3 and assume we finish at +30. Hard to see 2 beating that if we all had the same points.

It's just a case of us holding our nerve.
 
I reckon if Man City beat United next week & Chelsea lose or draw with Man U up at Okd Trafford that we'll be alright. The two big ones for me for the rest of the season are West Ham at home & Bournemouth away. That GD gives us a little more space than we hoped 70 minutes into that Huddersfield game. Big old end to the season we have coming up pal
City won't win their last 5 games. All indicators point to Liverpool. The symbolism of this year just seems like destiny is all but written.

And United would be the most likely team to burst that light blue dream.

My complacency guard is set to MAX already, but If there's one I'm least concerned about....
 
Woolwich looks terrible even with a man advantage. Watford is bossing this first half.
they really did look terrible, couldn't believe I was watching a premier league game when Woolwich had the ball, they looked disjointed and could't do the basics in midfield or up front. They barely beat 10 man Watford when also gifted a goal. I really don't think we have much to worry about here.
 
Sky and the FA are not even disguising the additional "help" they give to Buttnal, with penalties where they should instead be booked for diving and a red card totally unjustified and then explained away by Sky and backed up by the gutter press.

This is the worst refereed league in football as Neil Warnock said the other week.

Honestly can’t believe how shit Woolwich were yesterday, I don’t see how any of their players can take confidence from that performance.

If they continue to play like that away from home they aren’t going to get more than 3 points total from their remaining away games.

That would leave the table as

3. Tottenham - 79
4. Woolwich - 77
5. Chelsea - 76
6. United - 75

It really is very close, although I think one of the others will slip up in one of those games but can't decide who.

All the key games in April. With little for opposition teams to play for can see all the CL challengers winning all matches in May.

Looking at those fixtures - It's hard to disagree that we have the easiest fixtures. Especially considering 3 of those are in our new stadium and no longer at Wembley and you factor in Arsenals horrendous away form.

Man Utd have a horrible next three fixtures. Whilst you can never quite tell what Everton you're getting, they seem to be raising their games for the bigger clubs recently with a draw against Liverpool and beating Chelsea and Woolwich.

Chelsea are another inconsistent team and you're never quite sure what you're getting from them. One week needing referees to help them beat Cardiff to comfortably beating Brighton. Plus, they've played a game extra than anyone else.

3. Tottenham - 77
4. Woolwich - 76

5. Chelsea - 74

Bournemouth are shit v top 6 this season and we’ll beat the Spammers I’m sure of it. I’d worry more about Brighton because if they lose v Cardiff they’ll get dragged in the relegation battle so they’ll probably look to close up shop v us and get a point. Which is not good considering how we struggled against defensive sides.
 
So mathematically it's still possible for this to happen, no?
1. City
2. Liverpool
3. United
4. Chelsea
5. Spurs (CL winners)
6. Woolwich (EL winners)

Christ, I might even take fifth for it to happen and dump Chelsea out of CL. Karma!

Also, you could swap Chelsea and goons and be just as happy....

No I want to avoid St Totteringhams day. My boss is a Goon and the prospect of having to put up with it is horrible.
 
Ideally I hope, given the league currently, that we finish 3rd and Man United finish fourth. Given the financials we would go ahead of the Goons this year and they are liable to struggle to get out of their slump. Best of all would be if Chelski and them go on (and tire themselves)but don't win the Europa so had to spend next year in Bate and Ostersund....

There’s something so satisfying about how quickly it’s become accepted (outside of North London) that we’re better than them. Without having too small time of a mentality I would definitely take 4th and them outside the top 4 over 3rd with them in it.

Mate we've just reached our first European Cup Semi Final since 1962. Are you really that worried about a poxy little name Woolwich fans made up for whenever they finish above us?

Those motherfuckers are squirming in their office chairs this morning. Knowing that should be more than enough. Get top 4, beat Ajax and reach the final and it's a HUGE season, even if they squeeze 3rd in the league

You are of course, right. Sorry
 
looks like its going to be tough to get top 4 now, we will be reliant on other teams wanting to beat Gooners ,Chelski, & Man U,
the way the games are falling for us makes it hard to get the maximum points,
BHA & Everton should be ok, but Hammers its their cup final, & bournemouth 2 days before CL are trough
