    64pts is the highest a West Midlands club has achieved in the Premier League since it reduced to 38 games. So another 27 points this season will set this team up as the greatest West Midlands side in Premier League history!

    No harm in dreaming!

    If we want 7th we will have to get at least 60 anyway. It's a target we should be aiming for.

    Next few games we will see if it's attainable...

    I’d hazard a guess. 58 points will get 7th season. Looking at trends from others years with points tallies similar at this stage.

    Watford would need to win 7 of their remaining 12 and Wolves at least 6 of their 13

    I don't like to say this, but the Villa finished second early on. 46 games or not, we have a way to go to match that.

    I assume the 64 points was the Vile?

    Very ambitious.

    2pts per game required.

    But it IS possible. Come on me babbies.

    I did a calculator and have us at 59pts, 3 ahead of Watford.
    Liverpool win the league with Man City 3 pts behind.

    Another shameless PPG thread plug, the average PPG of 7th place (not the points needed to finish 7th - as that is technically 8th place + better GD) over the past 10 years has been 1.55 - so 59 points.

    There are 39 points to play for or four defeats out of the remaining 13 games. It is possible when you consider how teams can keep winning. I think of Leicester to win the title and Palace to escape relegation. It is a dream but dreams can come true.

    Indeed. Let’s just say, the West Midlands club in the 21st Century... :)

    That Watford away game is looking like a biggie, don't think West Ham are good enough to catch us, and we're too far behind the top 6 and probably not consistent enough.
    Can't believe what I've just written!!

    A lot will depend on what Chelsea do. If they stick with Sarri I think they are definitely catchable, especially if we do them at Stamford Bridge!

    History is great but with this side I tend to now look forwards and not backwards and so for me Wolves ending the season as the top MIDLANDS club is just fantastic! It's got to be a few seasons since we achieved that?

    Sorry Shiffers, we finished behind Forest that season! Top West Midland side but not top MIDLAND side! Further back I'm afraid, which it makes it all the more sad that we've had to wait so long for this side to come along.

    I think we'll make the 60 mark with gas in the tank. So after tonight, another 19 points.

    Surely we will get an absolute minimum of another 12 pts (3 wins 3 draws) taking us to 50. Another 3 wins and a draw takes us to 60. That would be an amazing achievement. But I think we will land up in the mid 50s which would still be brilliant. 7th is definitely a possibility if we can win tonight and create a bit of a buffer between us and the five other teams in our 'league'.
