Well Iíve plotted our way to 46 points from our current position which I would be very happy with.

Given we seem to be going along the win one lose one, sort of season, weíre looking at averaging around 1.5 points a game, which would give us 57ish.
57 would be enough to see us 7th or 8th over the last 4 seasons

A meagre 8 points on top of that would give us our best haul since finishing runners-up under BFR.

I love the way the villa players and Deano are learning from mistakes in previous matches. You can see the gradual improvement.

Against Brighton, Traore didn't track back and an unmarked March got Brighton's winner. Boss shows him the video, then against WBA his tracking back was fantastic.

Last season against 10 men, Luiz dropped back to collect the ball from our defenders. Waste of an extra man. Against WBA, our defenders made the passes and Luiz moved higher up the field. We took advantage of that extra man.

Against WBA, on a number of occasions Targett ended up just outside their penalty box in a central position. This gave Jack and El Ghazi more space to do their trickery down the left and also forced a WBA defender from the goal mouth area. Good thinking.

Mings is releasing the ball faster and when possible McGinn is starting to get into shooting positions again. There are many more examples of this team learning.

At the moment, we are playing fantastic football, very willing to learn and our back up players are stepping up to the plate. We should fear no one in this league and I mean no one. Not even the mighty Liverpool. :) 

In this unusual season, I see no reason why we should not set the top 6 as our target. Wouldn't be surprised if our owners are thinking the same.

We're only five away games from staying up.

After 12 games we're actually currently on more points than all 3 seasons when we finished 6th under MON.

We can certainly finish top half although still more likely in 8th-10th range than anything above that but we'd certainly have all taken that as amazing season in August.

I've gone from `14th to top half , to top 8 finish.  Won't be easy but we can only convert another 5% of our chances.

Simply has to be somewhere in the top half.

30 points from 25 games would probably put us top half. 35 Top 8 and 40 Top 6.

1 win from last seasons tally. Ridiculous.

Be disappointed if we don't finish at least top.

Liverpool are currently clear at the top having lost only one game all season.

We absolutely put them to the sword.

I'm not saying we're the best team in the league but we're certainly in the top one.

Hoping for 12th but would settle for 16th.

Currently awaiting VAR review.
