    17/18 Promotion Charge

    There's another argument that we should do what Huddersfield did last season - cruise the couple of games and rest players, ready for the playoffs.

    I admire your optimism but can't help remembering when we were favourites over two legs against Bradford in 2013 and I also have some horrible memories of Wembley finals this century.

    The above does not make sense - unless you add Villa to the 24 other teams (creating a 25 team league!). Instead of a 25 team league, transpose us for the second place team - a team that would still have been promoted with 85 points GD +5. Simples.

    You're still playing a 25 team championship! It's all academic no matter how many points we get as the Premier League won't allow us to transpose this season's points on last season's table to enable us to be promoted (gits!). Back to the hypothetical game, we could still finish with 87 points, easily enough to have gained us automatic promotion last season.

    ....and then the league would have 25 teams in it. In this hypothetical game we replace the team in 2nd place, i.e. take out Brighton and replace them with Villa. If Brighton (us in our little game) had finished with 85 points with a goal difference of +5, they would have still have finished second. As further explanation, playing the supposition for surviving relegation, how many points (ignoring GD) would have needed to survive the table below? Team W 40 points Team X 35 points Team Y 30 points Team Z 25 points. The answer is 36 points, NOT 41 points.

    85 points and a very, very achievable goal difference of +5 to be precise . I've liked your post as someone else who understands how the hypothetical game works.

    No, that's not how it works. For example if Brighton had finished with 85 points with a goal difference of +5, they would still have been promoted. To assume we would have needed to finish above 2nd to finish second would put us in a league of 25 teams, not 24.

    To finish ahead of Reading who finished 3rd, we'd have needed 85 points and a goal difference of better than +4.

    Russia

    The U.S. has just stated that, provided Assad does not use chemical weapons again, this military operation is now complete. The targets were restricted to a chemical/biological weapons manufacturing/development site and two chemical weapons storage sites. It doesn't smack of regime change at this time, so hopefully Russia will resist their temptation to heighten the issue beyond the war of words and restricted diplomacy.

    Knowing what the response would be, Assad lit the match last Saturday. He had notice of such last year. I think you will be surprised at how far this current response does not spread, at least in the military sense of approaching something anywhere near a WW.

    Samba's ideal to protect a lead, especially when the opposition decides their only option, to grab a late draw, is to lump it forward (as witnessed in our two victories this week). I like that we have Samba in our 18.

    Not sure if you are serious, but I don't believe it will commence WW3. After all of Russia's bravado, it will be interesting to see what (if any) military defence of Syria, Russia provide and how effective it is.
