Ever since that Notts chairman got his cock out theyíve really picked up.

Power- itís over to you!
In the spirit of RW saying fans have a part to play perhaps that is what he meant. Next home game all fans should get their parts out and wave them to guarantee promotion. It will be nailed on (promotion, not the part). Unfortunately due to sanctions I won't be permitted to take part join in.

6 off 7th with a game in hand. Most certainly all to play for.

The GD is worth a point off atm.... so effectively 7

We were always going to drop a few places today, what it does do however is bring a certain number of clubs into the mix who previoiusly people hadn't really considered, like Oldham, Crewe, Stevenage, Grimsby... all of whom we have to play.

The bottom line is still we have to win the next 4 in a row to get into contention.... as we'd need 2 wins and a draw to get into the top 7 if nobody else played a game.

Donít really have to win next 4. Just accumulate enough points in the next 14 games to make 7th. Doesnít matter when you win those points.

In theory. However that takes no account of the psychology.... it's very difficult to win games towards the end of the season when fatigue and pressure start to take their toll.

Let's imagine that 72 might be enough for a PO spot... win the next 4 we'd be on 58 needing 14, that would be very doable, and leave a bit of room for say the line being 75.  If say the next 4 yielded a win a loss and 2 draws... that would leave 7 wins from the last 10, very difficult and you want find many seasons in our history with such a late season haul.  Now is the time to do it, starting on Sat v in form Grimsby, not easy.

So if we were to only get say 10 points out of the next 12 then itís all over?

Just checking

That would be a decent return... but history tells us even in a very good season the haul from the last 10 games averages out at 17 points as a mean figure, or median figure.

I'm basing very good season on achieving promotion or a PO finish.  We've had 14 of these in my time.... so from 56 points with 10 to go, 17 would give you 73, which could be enough or not, that remains to be seen.

From the 58 point position the average good season finish would yield 75 points which was good enough last year.

To give a further indiator of how hard this is.... our 3 title winning sides from that era, 85/86 got 24.... 95/96 got 20..... 11/12 got 20  and 68/69 got 21.  7 of those sides got < 17,  2 got 18 and only the final Macari side, did the strong finsih for 21.

Im going for a run, having a bath and then making tapas for dinner.  Just as soon as this episode of Friends is over.
Ha, I did pretty much exactly that albeit I preceded it by going to the tip rather than watching Friends. And I made pasta rather than tapas but that's an anagram so it's more or less identical.
