Here is the annual ‘Can we finish in the Top 6’ thread. We have 16 games left or in other words 48 points left to play for this season. These are the games left remaining for ourselves and our contenders for a top 6 place – in Black Bold are the games where those going for a top six finish play each other as well as when there is a local derby, in Red Bold are teams we can no longer catch. I will try and keep this updated after there is a full set of fixtures.

No chance. While we are bossing games and cant hit a barn door with a banjo. You dont climb the table with draws. It frustrates the life out of me because if Hemmings wanted it he could make it happen. Its pne, been putting up with it nearly 60 years but by god under the current circumstances its wearing a bit thin.!!

We're just too slow in the final 3rd. We get there quick enough then the movement just stops

I don’t see why we cannot make it. Earlier in the season we were free scoring and we have the same players plus SS, we just need to get back to scoring and taking our chances. It happened before why not now?

I don’t think any of the chasing pack are any better than us but think the 6 teams above us are all better and will churn out more points.

I think we will fall just short. Today, in the second half, we got into good positions and then had a shortage of options in the box and it's not the first time it's happened. Some tough away games to come but I'm not writing us off.
We could do with more clean sheets at home. Think we've only had 2.

Good list. I notice our home game against Hull is missing on February 22nd. With so much information in front of you I'm not surprised one slipped the net.

We've every chance of getting in the play offs and am sure AN will still be aiming at a top 2 position. We have our weaknesses but so do all the teams above us. We have a very good side.

Of course it's possible, but we probably won't make it.

I'll continue to hope until it's mathematically impossible.

Remember the run we pulled on Cardiff!?

I always remember that 6-0 win against them. Our goal differences were identical but we had scored more goals. Lonergan saved a penalty. Had it been 6-1 Cardiff would have been in the play offs. Shame we were so poor against Sheffield Utd.

At the start of the season if after 30 games you told me we'd be 3 points of the play offs I've had bitten your hand off.. Which makes this last transfer window so frustrating... Fingers crossed for the lads going forward 🤞🤞🤞
