    I've done the math and we will finish on 82 points this season. Which would represent a fantastic improvement over the last 4 seasons (64(!), 70, 66, 69).

    Think we will finish in second place. City will probably finish between 94-97. Which they cannot sustain into next season.

    We're heading in the right direction guys. Buy well in the summer and I daresay the trophy will be coming home next season (famous last words)

    80 points. We’ll rest players the deeper we (hopefully) go in the CL and drop some points.

    Newcastle A - 3 pts
    Chelsea H - 3 pts
    Palace A - 3 pts
    Liverpool H - 1 pt
    West Ham A - 3 pts
    Swansea H - 3 pts
    City A - 0 pts
    WBA H - 3 pts
    Bournemouth A - 3 pts
    Arsenal H - 3 pts
    Brighton A - 1 pt
    Watford H - 3 pts

    85 points total, would be an amazing improvement from last years total of 69 points. Though maybe I was a little generous, probably have some other banana skin game somewhere like I did for Brighton A. Probably another loss.

    Most likely, but I think they will beat Liverpool at home which will balance it out.

    Matching last season results in the remaining games (8W, 4D) would give us 84 points. Comparing corresponding fixtures from last season now we are on +15 at the moment. I think we'll have another loss somewhere in there, so a point total between 78-81 seems a realistic target and should see us at least finish in 3rd.

    Would love it if we hit 80, it would be major progress.

    If we did finish on 82, where would we have finished in every other premier league season? @Damien

    Incredible how high the standard to win the league was from 2004-2009.

    Hopefully, a good run in the CL and FA cup will probably cost us a few prem points, in which case 80 points would be a good achievement.

    Why? 9 points is what we should get in next 3 league games.

    Sorry. Quoted wrong message.
