Apparently, we have the same number of points as Norwich as the same stage last season.
We can do this
I know every team can do this, but if we'd had more home wins we'd be up there with Southampton and West Ham.
Portsmouth, Millwall, Coventry and Peterbrough - all games we were winning 1-0 very late in the game (2-1 against Pompey) and we conceded a late equaliser after failing to kill the games off.
We deserved wins in all four of these (Pompey's goal was about the 92nd minute, I think) and in Peterbrough we hit the crossbar twice.
We still struggle to get a second goal against teams at home, or let them score and give them a lifeline. Even today, our second was a minute before the end and we should have put it to bed.
Still, our fate for the play offs is on our hands. And if we went on a stupidly great run, we could get one of the top two spots. Unlikely, but with Southampton and West Ham to play still, it feasibly could happen.
Tonight we looked about a million miles away from the Premier League though.
It's such a tight division though. No-one's running away with it, and about any of the top 8 could be saying "if only we'd won this game or that game we'd be top of the league".
We've been beaten by the three teams above us as well (Southampton, West Ham and Reading) and that has cost us, but unbelievably, it's the home draws that STILL have prevented us from being top. Because we've won so many away games, we're still up there.
