Wolves should have beat Arsenal yesterday and would have had it not been for Leno. They are lethal on the counter attack it will be a tough afternoon.
I'll Hazard a guess

Yeah they played well yesterday, but against Brighton and Watford they didn't look great. Definitely a game we need to be looking to get points from.

Well at least they can't counter attack against a team that hardly leaves its own half!

Sorensen has scored again tonight, if he keeps this up we’ve surely got to see him at some point? Although FAC3R in Jan away to someone like Oxford in a much changed and disjointed team is probably most likely <laugh>

Sounds about right. You sound ready for managing a lower-half PL side in a cup tie! <gent>

Dummett went off injured for the Welsh tonight not sure how bad an injury it is but we have Kenedy at left back for the Burnley game

8 to 9 points from our next 6 would be a good return and a realistic target. I'd be delighted with this:

Burnley A - D/L
West Ham H - W/D
Everton A - L
Wolves H - L
Huddersfield A - W
Fulham H - W

Huddersfield and Fulham before Xmas should be looking at 4 points minimum, can’t afford to lose to those two. Wolves at home we can get a point, they’re a good team but no better than Bournemouth. Their weakness is upfront, they won’t score a huge amount of goals.

I don't do realism I'm afraid.

I’m not saying don’t be realistic. I tried it once and it was without doubt the worst thirty seconds of my life but don’t let my negative experience put you off.

I predict 30 points from the next 10 games, the club will be sold, Rafa will sign a five-year contract extension and the new owners will announce a frickin huge war chest for the January window which shows their clear intention to kick this Sleeping Giant in the nuts and get it moving again.
I may have got the points tally a tad wrong but... <divax>

Despite the disappointment of Sunday we're still a point ahead of what I thought (got 11 points and I thought we'd get 10).

Huddersfield and Fulham are big games for us, Mooy is out injured for Huddersfield which is a bonus.
