Balwer Posted April 24, 2009 Share Posted April 24, 2009 It seems there are some wildly conflicting views on this board as to how many points we will need to stay up. Currently we have 34 and 18th has 31. There's five games remaining, so we could be anywhere between 34 and 49. Three home games which are all winnable, two away games where realistically one of them (Chelsea) we have no chance of three and only a slight chance of one, so it's more like 34-47. Some here feel that 41 or 42 will be needed, some think only 35 or 36. Historically the past five seasons has been around 36 or 37, but six seasons ago (I think) 42 was needed. So I'd like everyone here to go on record and state the minimum requirement for this season. Personally I feel it will be 38. We're in pretty bad circumstances at Rovers currently with the lack of striking options and the lack of quality central midfielders. I believe Rovers will get 39, one win and two draws. I think there's a strong chance we need to get at least a point on the last day, and that we'll do it. I think whoever wins the Boro-Newcastle game will stay up, with WBA and Hull heading back down after one season, and we'll be 16th or 17th. Thoughts? Predictions?
