Leeds last 6 fixtures currently on 33 points

Palace away
Man City home
Arsenal away
Chelsea home
Brighton home
Brentford away

Everton last 7 games 29 points

Liverpool away
Chelsea home
Leicester away
Watford away
Brentford home
Palace home
Arsenal away

Burnley last 7 fixtures 25 points

Southampton Home
Wolves home
Watford away
Aston Villa home
Tottenham away
Villa away
Newcastle home

Making your own assumptions on how many points you think each team will get leaves me wondering where Burnley will pick up there 8 points plus how ever many we take from our remaining 6

Total points end of the season
Leeds 38 points
Everton 37 points
Burnley 33 points

That’s how I believe the table will roughly come end of the season.

I concur with that LAD2 it will be nothing less than something totally extraordinary for Burnley to win enough points to go ahead of us. We would have to lose all our remaining games in all likelihood for them to have even the remotest chance.
Personally I’m not concerned anymore.

Only Tottenham out of burnley fixtures have anything to play for. The rest are mid table or down.

I’m basing my predictions on the optimistic hope that JM has had the desired impact on the squad over the last 2 weeks, and the return of key players and likelihood of having a real striker playing, plus the reality that no hard how they fight, the quality they may have at the other two clubs will be insufficient. Burnley are rudderless, and Everton may as well be too! MOT!

Total points end of the season
Leeds 41 points
Everton 33points
Burnley 33 points.

Wolves also have something to play for Aus but. Burnley have easily the most favourable set of games compared to Everton and Leeds

As for the gap of 8 points the key for Burnley will be winning 4 out of 7 entirely feasible with teams on the beach like Saudi Barcodes will be last game of seasonn
if they did they will most likely finish ahead of both Leeds and Everton as I predict.

OP back in Jan, the Saudi Barcodes were I seem to recall 11 points behind us when we played them, they then went and won 3 games in a row and were ahead of us in a matter of 4 or 5 games.

Burnley bridging points gap of 8 points is more than feasible.

The palace game is huge because we will very likely get nothing from Citeh, Chelski and Gooners.

I’d rather have Burnley’s fixtures than ours
Everton have a tougher run than burnley also but burnley would need to win as many games in last 7 as they won all season.

21 Apr 2022 10:48:25
Baz, they bought virtually a new team, Trippier eked two or three victories for them, then whilst injured they lose again. I don’t think there’s anything special about Newcastle, but they are winning their matches overall. They have assured their safety in the Prem fortunately for their fans, it’s usually the effect that happens when you probably have the richest owners in football history, take over your club. !

21 Apr 2022 10:59:26
Yes they bought/ loaned 5 players OP indeed and they still aren't good I agree but winning one match then 2 brought them confidence and crucial momentum.

It’s quite difficult to predict the Burnley points haul. The first three fixtures may be key, but for those you could as easily see them managing 7 points (WDW) or none (or anything in between) , and how well they do in those will clearly affect their confidence (and consequently results) for their remaining two home games - not particularly likely to get anything v Villa and Spurs away) .

Likewise tough to call the Everton haul. It would perhaps be a surprise if they didn’t get 3 points at Watford, as so far only Villa and Devon have lost there and even Newcastle under Bruce managed a point there. Brentford and Palace at home could be any result for them and who knows which version of Chelski will turn up at Goodison. They seem most likely to return from Liverpool, Leicester and Arsenal empty handed.

As for our likely results, Palace may actually prove little tougher after their performance last night. Vieira will demand a reaction, having stated after the game that they didn’t start well, not competing in the first half hour or so. Also acknowledged that playing us on Monday (rather than the weekend will give them more time to work on the mindset etc, following a possible hangover from the FA semi disappointment.

Citeh home and Arsenal away don’t look great, despite Citeh possibly needing to rest/ rotate players between CL semi matches, and with Arsenal seeming to have rediscovered some form. The rearranged Chelski home game being before their FA Cup final could play for and against us, with some players being rested, but others trying to prove they should start in that match - including Lukaku, who as a former Toffee and Devonian, may be eager to get the chance to scupper Liverpool’s hopes of a quadruple.

Our efforts in playing Chelski, will not be helpful for what would otherwise be a more winnable game against Brighton (who will have had all week to recover from a comfortable strolled win at home to Devon) and may well all be gathered together to watch us play Chelski on Sky, and chat through tactics against us for the weekend. Brentford will be so up for beating us in that final game. I’m certainly not confident of us getting much from our last six games.

21 Apr 2022 11:42:22
Equally, a little later than them with players coming back from injury and perhaps the new manager bounce has seen us acquire 10 pts from 12. If we can get a win against Palace, the big confidence lift may give us some unexpected results, especially against the teams at the top part of the table.

21 Apr 2022 11:53:24
I wouldn’t rule out squeezing something from the Russians as they seem to have gone awol.

21 Apr 2022 12:27:04
Good analysis again Clu ; Leeds are most definitely in considerable peril of R due to our remaining fixtures.

21 Apr 2022 13:46:31
I think the point being missed is that we are not quite the same team at the end of Bielsa’s reign. Then we had taken a walloping by several teams, still a lot of players missing and confidence at an all time low.
The players should be given some credit for fighting their way out of this situation and I think Marsch has given the players belief also.
So it would be I’ll advised to judge the team as they were 5 or 6 games ago to now.
Both Everton and Burnley have stuttered, picking up only one point a piece at home when there’s no doubt they needed three at games they could have won, ie, playing a tired Leicester with nothing to play for in the league.
A clearer perspective should considered.
I’m not going to make a prediction with our game against Palace but I feel it’s a game we can definitely win.

21 Apr 2022 14:27:57
Currently, at my most optimistic I could envision us getting 6 more points, with a win and three draws - which would be likely to see us safe and looking down on both Burnley and Everton. But my most pessimistic side can envision both those sides overhauling us.

The outcome of our game v Palace and Burnley’s games v Saints and Wolves will likely determine how pessimistic I’m feeling for the remainder of the run-in.

OP Regarding your post concerning Barcodes, highly weird then you couldn't see it when they immediately took over. Did it take you awhile to fathom that enormous wealth is helpful or more likely was it if George says black is black and white is white it must be wrong because George said it?
