We can still finish as low as 9th.

I suspect teams between us and 9th playing each other means that's not possible though, it's it not? I'd guess it might vaguely possible that we could just about drop out of the playoffs if we didn't score another point in any of the 8 remaining league games this season.

Yes, it's possible. There aren't enough games between the top 9 left to influence it a great deal. The most significant one is Tuesday's game between Coventry and Hull. Either of them could lose that, but if they won their remaining games could still overhaul us, albeit Coventry could only do it on GD if they lost.

That's not in the spirit of doom and gloom.

Not sure that's right! Southampton alone still have to play us, Preston, Coventry and Leeds! They can't all win those games. That's without checking the other 7 teams below fixtures against each other.

They have 10 games left, could lose all those and still overhaul us. Obviously I am assuming that we could lose all our games to end up 9th.

I have considered all possibilities.

We are going to finish 3rd, 24 points ahead of 6th place and promptly lose to them (probably Norwich) in the play-offs, McKenna then gets poached, Davis goes with him and we sink back down into oblivion.

Norwich can afford to lose a game and still finish above us. Assuming we lose all 8 matches.

Actually, I'd have taken 9th before the season started. Newly promoted, places better than beloved 15th, good return to Championship football and base for the future.

And yet here we are 😃

What about we could never compete with the Premier league finances of Leicester, Leeds and Southampton we've just been very very lucky so far?

Spot on, no way we could compete with them without the lucky breaks we've had. If we go up, we'll come straight back down.
