Everton will be an interesting one with where they are at the moment and we are still likely to be without Benteke.

If he is back for Stoke as has been suggested in some places then the run of games is a great opportunity to pick up points.

If we can start getting that out game after game we should be picking up points regularly.

12 points minimum required. We can surely win three of those 4 home games and I don't see why we can't pick up one away win. We owe Swansea one. BHA away is an avoid defeat at all costs game.

We will have few excuses if we fail to rack up some decent points from that run, especially with our home form showing some signs of improvement recently.

15 points would be amazing, and would leave us on 19pts which should have us par for the first half of the season.

Would take 12 now:
Eve H - D
Stoke H - W

Should just be mentioned that we would have played Swansea twice and not played Arsenal in the first 19 games.

It will be a crucial time heading into a period of trying to attract players to join us to improve us further.

Spurs is also not a banker they have lost Lloris and Alderwiereld and Kane only just made it back for Real from injury so be interesting to see if the give him a rest and pull him out of the England squad. Games against Spurs last year were pretty marginal.

Really hope that is true. TBH he needs to find his mean clinical self for the rest of the season though. None of this missing sitters stuff :) I watched the early highlights the other week and some were painful. Maybe he was carrying a knock or something. Donít care as long as he gets us 20 goals :)

You only need top 4 form if you have no points at Christmas.

If we only got 2 wins then we would have 10 points, another 26 might get safe and that is 1.36 points per game which is only 52 for the season and about 8th.

With the news that they hope Benteke will train over the international break that should raise confidence levels.

Looking back at a few seasons at half way, if you are below 15 youíve had it, 19 plus probably looks ok

So its 4 wins or 3 wins and 2 draws

Well in 14/15 we were 3 points after 10 games. At the halfway stage we had 16 points so from where we are we need 12 points from the next 9 games to be better than that or 4 wins. We finished 10th that season didn't we?

Long way to go yet.

GreatGonzo
03-11-2017, 04:02 PM
We are 8 points behind Brighton, 3 games to go till we play them and they play Swansea and Stoke. I don't think we will be able to go above them on the 28th - now that is a real shame.

OK I take your point, more like Europa League form then, 36 points could be enough for survival this year but I would think 38 would seal it

Yeah 36 hasn't been enough only once in the last 4 years (Newcastle on 37pts).

2011 was the last time a point a game 38 wasn;t enough when Birmingham and Blackpool went down with 39. That year 33 was bottom placed West Ham and only Manu U managed 2pts a game at the top so league was far more congested than usual. 38 wasn't enough in 2007 (on GD) and 2003 when West Ham went down on 42.

It has bee since 1998 that 40 points has been enough except for that 1 year.

Only twice has a team ever been relegated from the Premier League having scored 45+ points. Have a guess......

It’s all about league places for me. Need to get to 17th or thereabouts by Christmas as we have a lot of tough games in Feb and March.

We are currently 5 points off the pace given such crappy goal difference.

We can do this though and I really think Roy and the lads can get us mid table by end of season once our tails are up again.

Obviously we would all take 17th in a heartbeat though.

Come back against Everton, pick up the yellow, have the 10 day break missing Stoke where Shawcross etc will prefer playing Benteke in the air than Wilf and Andros on the floor. Come back and destroy Brighton.

All sorted.

I "hope" for 8/8, but doubt I'll get it. :)

Sarcasm aside, I think we need to get to 20 points by the time we've finished those games in order to be out of the bottom 3 and have a realisitc chance of avoiding relegation. But I am ever the pessimist (or perhaps just realist) and more likely expect to have 12 points by the time we've played them.

3 wins 2 draws and 3 defeats seems modestly expectant. 11 points putting us on 15, probably sitting 18th or 19th, but in touch so we can pull ourselves safe second half of the season.

We must remain positive when looking at those fixtures and work on the assumption that FIVE of those are winnable is what we Must work to, anything less will make it a tough task.
Yes we all know it will be a tough ask, but having got ourselves into this position we have left ourselves with no alternative but to aim for it. What is going to be crucial is having Benteke back AND fully firing as it is long overdue, also we remain lucky with further injury woes until the window opens.

Going to need 15 points from those games (assuming nothing vs Spurs) to make up for our poor start and be around par for halfway to avoid the drop. Would like to claw back our poor position asap but 7th place to 20th place is up for grabs.

Don't think we need that many points. 15 or 16 at the half way point will be decent. That's only 12 more over 8 games. Don't get me wrong, would love another 15, I'm just happy to set sights slightly lower

I reckon 20 points from those 8 are possible if we play like we have been.

We got tonked by good sides.... but were improving loads, and hopefully Benteke be back with a few goals.

Johnny Byrne

5 of 11 games against 5 of top 6 and 4 of them away. So still all to play for. We were good today and creating chances. No striker right now is killing us. Bad planning by the Board Iím afraid. They know it too.

Splitting the 8 games like this. I think a must is winning 1 of each section (minimum 12 points)
This would keep us in touching distance sill at very least.
