Form

Bored at lunchtime this morning and looking at the form over Bowen's first 7 games and how well placed we are in those tables (W4, D1, L2) and thought I would see how the season may pan out if we can keep up this kind of form over the remainder of the season - was pleasantly surprised by what we would do and what else may happen.

All teams form calculated over their last 7 games also, with such a small sample it's just a bit of "fun" really and won't tell us too much - points added - where 2 teams on same points taken the bigger fraction of a point to indicate better GD.

Key points:

If all teams carry on with the same form until the end of the season:

We will finish 8th on GD
The top 4 will be well clear of everyone else
The bottom 7 will be cut well adrift
Stoke & Barnsley will save themselves
Wigan, Luton & Charlton will drop.

Full Table

1. Leeds 105 points
2. WBA 104
3. Brentford 101
4. Fulham 96
5. Bristol City 78
6. Hull City 76
7. Blackburn 73
8. Reading 73
9. Millwall 72
10. Forest 72
11. Cardiff 70
12. Preston 69
13. Sheff Weds 63
14. Derby 63
15. Swansea 60
16. Birmingham 59
17. Huddersfield 52
18. Middlesboro 44
19. Stoke 37
20. QPR 36
21. Barnsley 31
22. Charlton 30
23. Luton 28
24. Wigan 24

If three teams were to get 100+ points it would be the greatest :shock: of all time - at any level - ever

(and yes, I know you've already put your caveats in)

On the plus side, Leeds to finish SO CLOSE to our record...but not get it.

No doubt their fans would sing "we've got the record....105" :D

Yeah, I nearly took the points out as that just won't happen - would mean Leeds just dropping 9 more points this season.

but I will stick to my theory that you will need the lowest points tally required to get into 2nd at end of season, lowest points tally to finish 6th and you will need the highest to finish in 21st place.

I clearly need coffee, I thought you were saying you needed higher points to finish in 21st than in 2nd.....

Does this mean the quality is good, because the teams are evenly matched or is the quality bad because the are no stand-out teams?
