We're 10th and have got Leicester just behind us, with games in hand. Brighton just ahead.

10th would be about right in my view and I doubt we're bridging the gap any higher than that. We shouldn't drop lower either.

There is currently an 8 pts difference between us in 10th and The dogheads in 8th. We’ll do well to get higher than 8th this season based on where we are now and the current form of Wolves. 9th is realistic  and would represent improvement on last season’s 11th placed finish if we can keep things going. But I reckon success as viewed by Gerrard would mean top 6. It looks unlikely, but you never know.

Looking at the fixtures we have a reasonable run home, if he can cut out the disappointing perfomances against the lesser clubs we could get to eigth.

You mean next season? I don't think anyone has top 6 as the aim this season. The math simply does not add up.

I am pretty sure he is aiming higher than 10th.
It would take a hell of a run to break Top 8 but Arsenal did something similar recently.
He will be expecting to challenge for top 6 next season.

We've got to start turning losses in to draws. Silly results happen every now and again - look at Man City yesterday - but it's the sheer number of defeats that are killing us this year.

We've lost 11 already from only 21 games. In the whole of last season Everton finished 10th with only 13 defeats. If we can't take points from the Sky 6 we'll never get close.

The upcoming run of games is an opportunity to build morale amongst the team, but the important bit is the six weeks in March and April starting with West Ham and finishing with Leicester. If we don't get a reasonable haul of points there we've got no chance of finishing higher than 10th.

Knock over the weaker teams in front of us in the next 5 games and we'll be running hot into the last batch of games, no fucker will want to play us

I think the United draw was a good sign, came back from 2 down to still get something, and then backed it up with the win yesterday. I said when he tool over 50 points would be a good job considering we were just under a point a game then. Now we are what, 26 in 21. So 24 from the next 17, which I hope we do better than. Anything around the 55 from last season considering our start would be incredibly good. I do think with a bit of fortune we could go on a really good run at some point though.

The run of games on front of us are very winnable, build a head of steam up and who knows where we could end up.

Wolves have just won six on the bounce ffs.

Wolves have done very well over the last few months, but as the early part of the season showed, they struggle if they get a few injuries.  I just think that if we can field the side we had out yesterday on a regular basis over the next couple of months (with the potential of adding a quality defensive midfielder this month) then I think we should have a strong finish to the season.

I think any team can go on a bit of a run - good or bad - so I'm not writing off a higher-than-anticipated finish.

Felt at the start of the season that 10th or higher, with something to build on, would be fine for this season given the high-profile departure.  I'm sticking by that.  But looking at the league table - I think Man Utd, Spurs, and Arsenal will be very difficult to catch now, and obviously the 3 teams up at the top of the table.  But the rest ... I don't think it's completely out of the question that we might catch them up.  For example, win our 2 games in hand over them, and beat West Ham away and we'd be 2pts behind them.  They're not that far ahead.

I would say top half finish.
