Just been looking at the fixture list... Leeds play twice before we play next monday - they could be 6 points ahead of us. I know things balance out by the end of the season and they have some big games coming up but as we head towards the run in could 6 points be too much?

I think we are streets ahead in terms of the football we play and the way we get forward. My friend who is a season ticket holder at Leeds thinks that results for them this season have flattered to deceive....

Their luck will run out eventually. That win against Notlob was undeserved and a fluke.

Was it about 12 games ago that both Leeds and Norwich were loads ahead - We helped to close the gap and a few others hung on our coattails and got closer too.

The WBA fans were in despair after Saturday night about autos gone - absolute bonkers to think that, the race for top 2 is still wide open. It would be a daft person to even rule out Boro or Bristol.

For sure with 12/13 games left a lot can still happen - suspensions/injuries/freak results etc.

Our squad has been brilliant in the past 2 to 3 games - i'd like to see a few of the others cope with such problems and with Roofe missing for Leeds, that could be a major issue to them.

The form league isn't terribly good for either Leeds or Norwich either.

All we need to do is concentrate one game at a time, like we are doing and don't get carried away.

At this time of year there’s lots of freak results too. Clubs at the bottom scrapping for anything, clubs in mid table playing with no pressure suddenly finding some form. Anything’s possible still.
Leeds could just as easily lose both and stay below us. Everything is so unpredictable

Exactly, Around Xmas time we'd just had a shabby 1-1 with Ipswich and were 10!!! points off autos and hanging onto the Playoff spots.

Big spell of form following that game and we're right in the mix having clawed back the majority of those 10 points. There's still 12/13 games left, there's a hell of a lot more twists and turns yet.

QPR away is their game in hand, not easy, as WBA found out last week, then 3 days later they play WBA at home, so they could be 6 points in front before we play what will be our game in hand at Hillsborough, if Leeds win both games I'd be surprised, but if they do, and we get a derby win it would put us 7 points clear of West Brom. There are far too many if,s to get worried about.

I also know a Leeds fan who is usually sensible and level headed.
He says that it’s as though his team are currently limping over the finish line.
Says if there were 3 matches left then he’d feel good, more optimistic about auto promotion
But since they still have 13 matches left he’s convinced Leeds WON’T make the autos.
Says there’s something missing and they haven’t been convincing for ages (in any match during 2019).

Absolutely. Win those two games, where we don't even play, and we might as well not even turn up at their place.
I'm going QPR 0-8 Leeds and Leeds 6-1 WBA, completely turn round the goal difference so we'd have to win by 3 goals at their place just to get it back. I'm done for the season now I've seen that.

If they’ve played two games more than we have, then no, 6 points is not too much!

Last week I was hoping both Villa and QPR could help us a bit by taking points off West Brom. Both didn't and West Brom did very well with two difficult away games.

What did we do? We took it upon OURSELVES to turn West Brom over.

We can do it ourselves - all it takes is one game at a time. We should just look at it as a bonus if other teams trip up - it's all about what we do.

The pressure is building on everyone in the top 4 but nobody has pressure more than Leeds.
I could hear their fans getting twitchy Saturday. I personally think they are the weakest side out of our major rivals and when they slip up I think it could even be for a couple of games in a row which at this stage would be costly.

Leeds will struggle from now on as they can’t keep playing the high intensity game that has got them into this good position in the first place. It happened to us last season, the difference this season though is we have a much better squad and have managed our games in a much better and controlled way, one final push from us and I honestly can’t see us finishing out of the top two.

Call me a pig or whatever for the confidence I’m showing but I honestly couldn’t give a fuck, the Blades are going up.

you fat piggy bast...............;)

Agree totally - well done for not fence sitting.

At the end of the WBA game the fans sang "the Blades are going up" - think it's the first time i've heard it this season :)

Although goal difference potentially comes into it, promotion is in our own hands, doesn't matter what everyone else does. Leets have WBA and us coming up, let's see where we are after that.

Bugger, now if you'd referred to yourself as deluded I'd be happy to call you a grunter...but confidence? Nah, I cannot imagine that if you were cut you'd reveal the words 'Danish' or some-such pig related term........you my son, are a Blade through and through, and the strange emotion emotion that you call confidence is based on a series of recent events beginning with a certain messrs Wilder and Knill.

It could be 6 points but maybe less. If we beat them, and we are well capable of that, then it could be only 3 points and we are certain to have a better goal difference, which is effectively worth an extra point.
