First time I've ever looked at this thread, and it will probably be the last , chill out, enjoy the moment, as the post above says, certain people are looking far too deep in to what is basically a simple game,
I say this to MJG and others, "Do historic stats have any relevance, yes or no ?"
I'm guessing that you are going to answer yes or otherwise you wouldn't continue to waste so much time,
So in that case I'll give you some relevant stats ,
Fulham have never won a meaningful trophy in their entire history, (potentially the longest run of failure in football)
Fulham have never won a play off game,
Now they are two powerful stats and the only two that matter right now, this great Club of ours has had a losing mentality for over 100 years, Jokanovic suddenly needs to find a way to break that curse that hangs over us over the course of the next two months , if he can't then all the other posts on this thread are irrelevant,
So relax, enjoy tonight, forget about historic data for 5th and 6th place, let's enjoy the moment and we'll worry about 3 big games in May when we get there. ⚽️🏆🍾🍻
I'm happy for you not to read this thread again (and of course you wont read this as you are not going to look again).
Stats have a relevance and historic ones do help interpret what should happen with a degree of error and just common sense as well.
Its just talking points for some and those who like this thread come back and those who dont should ignore it.
I for one very much appreciate this thread and the amount of work that you've put into it.   Numbers tell a story, and this story is an interesting one.

After 5 games Cardiff had nine points on us already. Considering their recent form and how well their results have gone. The fact we are still about the same gap behind them even with our poor start to the season. Says an awful lot about our record run. It also shows they have been far more consistent throughout the season.
They have never been out the top 4 and only out the top 2 for 14 of their 39 games. Dislike them as we do they deserve to be where they are.

I love this thread, I just think we are in danger of getting a bit obsessed at the moment. It's understandable but it shouldn't prevent us relaxing and enjoying the ride while it lasts.

Cardiff chase down

Biggest gap was 18 points at game 22 and smallest was 4 at game 30

Automatic promotion or not this table shows how far we have come in chasing Cardiff down.  We can lament the slow start to the season all we like but it's history.  This recent run and the attempt to chase down Cardiff has been nothing less than magnificent.

PS Mike how about an additional row below Cardiff showing the points difference for ease of interpretation?

The bit that surprises me, is after 20 games we had 26 points. The next 20 games gave us 49 points! So from an average of 1.3 points per game we have moved to 2.45 ppg! Almost double......crazy!! 😋

A win tonight mathematically guarantees us a play-off place.

Yes, would love to see an update here!

Wasn't there something strange with the last update? All the tables except the first one seemed to be from round 38?

I'm working on the road this week so haven't had a chance to  update anything yet, but if I get a decent WiFi connection later I'll do it.

Love these posts Mike.  You often find something new, this time it's that "gap to Cardiff chart".  And what a sight it is!
