I think we'll win the playoffs.

Don't get me wrong - I think we're crap, not the players, just the style. No reason why we can't win them.

Just thought I'd leave it here.

It's all depends on Ayew in my opinion, if he's up for it then who knows.

Cast your mind back to the Reading game...

Ayew comes on after an hour with not a lot happening, Cabango knocks an aimless ball that flies over Ayews head, AA turnes and gives BC an earful, Ben says something back and Ayew goes absolutely ballistic and has to be held back, 20 seconds later Ayew plays a worldie of a ball inside to Grimes (I think) that's starts the move for Lowes equaliser. Ayew celebrates like he's just won the lottery, then goes on to put us 2-1 up.

So yes, a fired up Ayew could just be enough.

He's very much a player that loves a big game. He'll be up for it.

If you look at the squad then Bournemouth have it best. However, the squad isn't important now outsdie the season (unless you have injuries). I still think they are massive favourites.

Barnsley may finish 6th, but they have had good results against both Bournemouth and Brentford, and Dike has added a lot of goals 2nd half of the season. They would probably fancy themselves against those two sidess with their playing style, and want to avoid us. That's probably what will happen. They'll beat Brentford to set up a Bournemouth vs Barnsley final

Us and Brentford could do it on our days. Both quite reliant on Ayew and Toney though, let's call it as it is.

I would give us 20% chance, Brentford 20% chance, Barnsley 25% chance and Bournemouth 35% chance

statistically we dont concede many. Expect the semi final to be tight,- could well go to penalties and Freddie has a decent record.

If the positions remain unchanged, Everybody seems scared of Bournemouth yet we are currently 3 points above them. I also reckon Barnsley can shock Brentford.

If we play Barnsley, surely we're not scared of them . Bournemouth and brentford will view their semi as the real final and then come unstuck against whoever they meet at wembley.

The table doesn't lie and we are in the mix as much as the others. They will be looking at us and thinking how can they break us down, whilst keeping Ayew and the overlapping Bids and Conner under wraps at the same time.

Hourihane must not start, and we bring him on if we need a goal or the game is going into extra time. So that he is on the pitch for penalties.

He needs to be, if we get a couple of 9/10 performances from him in the playoffs then we won't be far away from a date at Wembley, then anything can happen on the day.

If we get to the final, I've a feeling we'll win it against whoever, if it's Muff over 2 legs...just can't see us making it.

A lot depends whether we play with intensity from the off where we can be competitive. We start games far too slow and teams get on top of us too easily ...

It's so close...too close to call I think. I wouldn't be surprised whoever goes up. Barnsley perhaps the underdogs and Bournemouth/Brentford probably the favourites, but we have nothing to fear. All we need is 2 goals and to concede none and we are in the PL. :D

Three 0-0 draws, and Freddie in goals for 2 penalty shoot outs - and we're in the Premier League. 😇


Everyday above ground ... Is a good day! 😎

We owe Barnsley one in the playoffs and there's no place for a bus stop in Hounslow in the Premier League. We've been better than muff for most of the season so I don't see what there is to stop us really.

I just hope we have more up our sleeve tactics-wise than just "give it to Ayew" whenever we are in trouble. Let's give him a chance and not keep passing the bad ball on to him.

The only two players who strike a bit of fear into the opposition are Ayew and Toney IMO. However Bmouth are the best team we've played over 2 games. We are likely to play them in the semi. I just hope if that's the case that they have an attitude of we just need to turn up.


Summers coming time to dream the day away. :)
