Sorry, but I haven’t really got the time to do as full a breakdown of the rest of the season as I had originally intended to, but, following Norwich reclaiming second spot with their very impressive 5-1 win at local rivals Ipswich, I’ll reproduce the posting I put on a Cardiff City messageboard concerning City’s position going into tomorrow’s match with leaders QPR (who know that, barring a huge points deduction, a win will see them promoted);
“Anyone else think that………..
if we are behind Norwich with three games to go we aren’t going to catch them?
With games against Burnley, Norwich and Reading to come, I’m going to become a Derby fan for the rest of the season – that win over the jacks and draw at QPR offers some hope that they can do us a favour, but to be honest, I can only see them, perhaps, getting something from the Burnley match.
Likewise with Portsmouth I’m afraid who face the jacks, Burnley and Norwich in their next three games – if their game here is anything to go by, the best we can expect is them possibly extending Swansea’s run of away matches without a win.
Finally, Coventry have to play Reading and Norwich in their last two matches and they are in good form at the moment with ten points from their last four games, but I’m afraid I don’t see them helping us out either.
“Must win game” is a term that is used way too often, but, in my view, it is justified when applied to our next four matches. “
