    3. The crowd isn't there - sounds weird but I think certainly for the Wigan meltdown last year a big contributory factor was the palpable panic emanating from the ER stands, which I think transferred to the players, so in some ways behind closed doors at ER this year might actually be a benefit - and win our 4 home games and we're almost certainly up whatever happens in the 3 away games
    Yeah I’m teasing a little
    And I especially understand no.3, but it’s a bit like saying we could win the Prem next season (if we have no spectators)

    It's great isn't it, all the pressure is currently on WBA and Brentford.

    All we have to do is tick the games off and match or better the Brentford results.

    Sounds so simple!

    "All we have to do.......", how manytimes over recent season ends have we heard/seen that written?

    It ain't over until the fat lady sings, and she hasn't even warmed up yet.

    Brentford have won a few on the spin now. Anyone seriously expect them to win the next 7 also? Decent if not great team, when was the last time someone won a dozen games on the spin in the championship? thats right folks, it doesnt happen! We are up , providing we dont lose the next 7 in a row!

    So just to clarify OWT.... you blame those people who go every week, they're not proper fans and they cause us to lose?

    Considering we cant go anymore, i must be one, Tongue it cheek guys but it has carried on relentless,

    On the thread, I believe we will do it this time, every team we have to face so far have something to play for either at the top end same with bottom end, Think this will play into our hands as teams wont park the bus, nothing worse than playing teams who have nothing to play for, pressure off relax and play so to speak,

    The only issue that I see is that we struggle to break down negative teams with packed defences.
    I think we will do enough for promotion, but still wonder what will happen if West brom find form again. May end up second.
