    Final Play-off Positions

    Got 10 people so far predicting our own final points total, so here's another challenge.
    The last time League one was completed, 73 points achieved a play-off place. This exceeds our most optimistic forecast in our final points list. However, this season the race is much more competitive with teams beating each other and constantly rolling up and down. The challenge is: who is going to occupy the top 6 places?
    For me, 1st Hull
    2nd Lincoln
    3rd Sunderland
    4th Peterboro'
    5th Portsmouth
    6th Blackpool

    Poor Ipswich miss out again!

    Poor Ipswich miss out because they are that, poor!

    I don’t think that anyone is that far ahead of anyone else. The Posh are probably the best side on their day but, like us, they need a decent pitch and fine weather to be at their best. There are a lot of ‘hard to beat’ teams at the top of the table,so who wins when they play each other and they’re both hard to beat? I guess that what will decide who comes out on top, but here goes for nothing!

    1. Hull
    2. Sunderland
    3. Peterborough
    4. Lincoln
    5. Portsmouth (manager change at just the right time)
    6. Doncaster (despite manager change at just the wrong time!)

    As long as Gillingham don’t sneak in I’ll be content.

    How about the bottom 4 then, gazan, which we can safely watch with passing interest this time! At one point this afternoon 1 point covered the current bottom 6 so it’s gonna be fun!

    I’ll go Northampton, Wimbledon, Swindon and Bristol, although I confess it’s heart over head in at least one of those predictions!

    i agree 100% with your relegation 4 and for exactly the same sentimental (and somewhat regionalist) reasons.
    Ditto the comments about Gillingham!


    Any more takers???

    Change of mind from above.
    Just realised that I have missed out Rovvvers. So:
    22. Brizzle Rovvvers instead of Wimbledon

    This has absolutely nothing to do with their "manager"!

    Lots of us NOT selecting Rochdale to be in the bottom 4, yet they are currently bottom 5 points short of safety. Meanwhile, everyone's partiality for Swindon and Northampton is not coming to fruition at the moment.
