9/1 odds.

Good odds for the people on here who dont think we will win it 🤷‍♂️

1/20 is our odds.

Got to hand it to some posters, who read what they want to read, and respond accordingly? 

Couple of questions. 

1. Can anyone point to a thread, or even a (sensible*) post, that supports the comment "for the people on here who dont (sic) think we will win it " ? . I doubt it. Does anyone THINK that we won't win it? 

2. Can anyone point to a thread or even a (sensible) post, that says let's just calm down before we open the Champagne and begin the celebration? Yes, a few , some mentioning the international break, potential injuries , forms of other teams and so on.  

 

*anyone mentioning meteorites hitting the earth and wiping out humanity do not fall into this classification .

This is great time of year for cliches (at the end of the day).

Conversely I wouldn't be surprised at all if Watford beat us at Carrow Road and we still with the title - I'd imagine the odds on that are still a lot shorter than the scenario you pose.

Who cares ? If anyone's brave enough to put money on Watford against a 1/20 shot ( 1/16 with Bill Hill ) then good luck to them.

All we need to worry about are the chasing pack behind the top two and with Brentford at 40/1 and Swansea at 100/1 I'd say we've pretty much home and hosed for an automatic spot.

That's all that matters.

Good odds because the bookies know its not going to happen. 

Maybe...but its not beyond the realms that they beat us when we play them...and then somewhere else along the line win a game where we lose one (maybe this b@stard Preston game on Good Friday??)

That would reduce the gap over them to 2 pts

With 3 points for a win it's doable. Hopefully by the time we play them 9/1 will have drifted out. 

Watford have had a good run but will slip up eventually. Even and unexpected draw could be game over.

Watford will not win at Carrow Rd, not beaten a team in top 8 away all season.  We may have enough points for promotion already.  

Champions must be the aim.

Reading some of your previous posts regarding scenarios and what if's i think your glass is not just half empty but is bone dry.

Last season Aston Villa were 1/20 to go down after we beat Newcastle with 3 games left. We were 12/1 to be relegated. Que some insane results. We went down. Of course I am not realky thinking the mighty Hornets will do it. Your form is still better. But never ever trust an odds on fav 

Villa clawed back 7 points in 3 games. Including at home to Arsenal.

You also sacked your manager during that period.

Saying 'Watford sacked their manager' is like saying 'day follows night' or 'the name of today has a Y in it'.

I didnt have a manager to sack. The board sacked the clubs manager. Given the dull international break i propose we settle an age old question. This before we focus on promotion etc.

 

What is more useful to the human race, string or celotape?

Must admit the visit of Watford will be a concern. Our home form is not that good- lost once all season!.

3 of Watfords last 4 games are;

City, Brentford and Swansea. 

It will take a catastrophic collapse from us or Watford win every single game from here.

I think Sellotape is the brand name (I’m not sure if this is true, but the story is that they changed the C in Cellotape to an S so the name could be registered as a trademark). Cello strings have been around for a long, long time, so Deborah definitely won’t be in. 😊🙂

I bought some double sided sticky tape the other day and that is pretty impressive stuff!

Back to football. I’ve been impressed by the approach to the last 5 or so games. It’s been focussed and highly professional and in the Forest game we controlled the game excellently. I see no reason for the approach and philosophy to change, and we’ve got a terrific points cushion so every reason to be positive about the final outcome.
