Champions put a £10 on it before season started.....

But then I’ve done this for the last 4 seasons so hopefully this year it works ;-)

Tricky to say. I think WBA are better than us at getting better shots in. They forced Kiko into several good saves when we played them but when we shoot from around the edge of the box we usually only make the ball boys work rather than the keeper. I don't see the top 2 changing barring an alarming slump as none of the challengers really look capable of closing the gap if we maintain a 2 points per game average. Brentford have lost 9 games already and all the other teams seem to be beating each other.

You've been fairly scathing of us in recent weeks.

Fixture congestion is going to be crazy in February, with Millwall already in the 4th round of the cup our game agsinst them will be moved. Means we only play 3 league games in January and then 7 in February.

I think come the afternoon of 29th February, having played Brentford and Forest too, we will have a good idea how things may pan out.

Only on certain players performances.
Some have had a stinker followed up by a excellent performance
Leaky defence.
Concern about the depth of our squad.

All very true

Still think we'll be ok at our contenders have similar problems

I've always thought we'd be in at least the top two.

I'll praise good performances & be critical of poor displays, I don't see Leeds matches through rose colour spectacles, if things are not great I'll say it as it is.

Many on here were saying Preston were a good side, I disputed it as I wasn't that impressed with them over the 150 minutes I witnessed at Deepdale & ER. Ironically they have lost three consecutive matches at home now sitting halfway down the league & are also out of the cup

Still think we look the best team in the league

My Championship Finishing Position predictions in Cat's competition back in August

1. Leeds
2. West Brom
3. Cardiff
4. Fulham
5. Brentford

And I'll stand by my initial thoughts :-D

Objectively we should get an auto spot but, as the saying goes, “it’s the hope that kills you” - almost as a matter of preservation of my own sanity I never try and get too carried away - I won’t believe we are going to do it until we’ve done it.

I'll leave the poll open Haighy & by all means we can comeback to it by the end of January, still believe we'll be nine plus points clear at that point.

If we sign a couple of solid players (and yes we need to) I'll be even more convinced of our destiny

Preston are a good side, if you haven’t noticed there is very little between most sides in this league, there is a bigger gap between 1st/2nd than there is between 3rd and 15th! We have a squad of fantasticly hard working players who play to the best coach this league has ever seen, he has them all at there very best. Not much will change with this squad for the rest of the season, 2 players hopefully arriving in this window. What happens if we lose our next two games? Does that make our squad poor? Full of liabilities? As a fan base on a whole, we need to be far less harsh on our players

Top two, but not sure in which position. We are the best team in the league, but the squad is thin. Not moaning about this, just cognisant of the fact that injuries to a couple of key players could derail us. That said, I have complete faith in MB, despite his stubborness, sometimes strange subs etc. He's a year wiser to what a long, attritional season the championship is, he will get us over the line this time.

Agree with what you say dezzy

No it doesn't mean we are a bad side if we lose our next two league matches, can't envisage that occurring even though football is a funny old game

As Norfolk says, one game at a time.
