Make your own FINAL CHAMPIONSHIP TABLE!
« on: March 19, 2017, 11:15:29 AM »
Underneath is the terrific piece produced by one of our 'RR' mods yesterday - so I reproduce it and ask you to go through these matches and give 0, 1 or 3 points for each match to each of the top teams. How do they finish up?? Only POINTS totals, don't worry about goal difference!

Replies in please by last day of the month - Friday, 31st March. I'll also do this on the Toon Forum and Leeds LUFC Talk



CURRENT TABLE


1.   Newcastle   38   78
2.   Brighton   38   77

5.   Reading   38   67
6.   Sheffield Wed   38   62

Our mod's ("Owlish", but a Royals fan!) anaylsis

Reading face two of the current Top 8, 1 Middle 8 and the bottom 5 clubs in the Championship.  Wednesday also face 2 Top 8 clubs, but 4 of the Middle 8 and only 2 of the Bottom 8.  Fulham face 3 Top 8 sides, 3 from the Middle 8 and two Bottom 8 clubs.  The Table suggests they will have a hard time catching the Royals.

Leeds face 3 Top 8 opponents (including Reading), 3 of the Middle 8 and 2 Bottom 8 clubs.  Should Reading win the home match against Leeds, the Table suggests that they will remain in front of them for the balance of the season.  Huddersfield have a game in hand, and face only 2 Top 8 opponents, 4 of the Middle 8 and 3 Bottom 8 clubs.  TBH, it is hard to see the Royals passing Huddersfield, but the current goal differentials are close (Huds has a +4, Reading a +2), so it is not totally out of the question, but the Royals will need a significant revival over this International Break to catch up and pass the Terriers. 

As for Brighton and Newcastle, their current 10 and 11 point advantages and their +30 goal differentials make it unlikely that Reading will manage to sprint past either, baring a significant collapse.  But we have seen clubs bottle their finishes before, and both have shown some stumbles recently.  Solid form from the Royals could offer a possibility as the season winds down, but the odds are not favorable.  Still, a playoff finish looks very possible, and a win on April Fool's Day would set the stage for a possible grandstand finish... ;)





Me?!

Mine predictions come out with the final table looking like this -


1. Newcastle 46 94
2. Brighton 46 90
-------------------------
3. Huddersfield 46 88
4. Leeds 46 85
5. Reading 46 84
6. Sheffield Wed 46 75
--------------------
7. Fulham 46 72


Fullest respect as always, you know me, just wondering how you truthfully see it ... ?

Over to you!!

from Leeds LUFC Talk

I'll stay optimistic, from a Leeds perspective, and forecast a narrow missing out on an automatic place, if that can be called optimistic! Still fear for us in the play-offs.
I thought Norwich could potentially make it to the top six but they have to play 5 of the top 7, so that probably closes the door on them.
Anyway, here goes;
1. Newcastle 46 92
2. Brighton 46 91
3. Leeds 46 89
4. Huddersfield 46 84
5. Reading 46 81
6. Fulham 46 79
7. Sheffield Wed 46 73


1. Newcastle 46 95
2. Brighton 46 94
3. Huddersfield 46 85
4. Leeds 46 83
5. Reading 46 82
6. Fulham 46 75
7. Sheffield Wed 46 74

Fulham beat Wednesday in the last game of the season and are in play offs by GD. Newcastle win Championship on GD


1.   Newcastle      46   94   
2.   Brighton           46    94
3.   Huddersfield   46   88
4.   Leeds           46     87
5.   Reading           46    80
6.   Fulham             46    77
7.   Sheff Wed         46    77

The above IS NOT A LEGAL DOCUMENT. It is an opinion.

We may yet hear the horse talk.

Having employed a sophisticated algorithm I come up with the following:

1. Newcastle - 93 points.
2. Brighton - 91.
3. Huddersfield - 89.
4. Leeds - 81.
5. Reading - 79.
6. Fulham - 74.
7. Wednesday - 71.

Cheers

Burt
