That's my point, it'll very unlikely be 10+,
So factor it in now.

We have plenty of winnable games coming with Doucoure and Onana to return soon.

Fixture list has made it look a bit rough but 5 of our last 7 are against probably the 5 other worse teams in the league.

After this weekend we have three very winnable games and Luton are up against United, Liverpool, and Villa with a cup match against City squeezed in there.

Form and momentum can shift quickly.

We do need points on the board so a win vs Palace will do us a world of good.

Can't get stuck on potential points deductions, appeals, etc - maybe we end up with more points, maybe less, maybe the same. Who knows, but with a full squad we are midtable so if we get back to that we'll do as well as we can to survive.

Their next three games are Man Utd (H) Liverpool (A) Villa (H) so not an easy run and hopefully a morale sapping pumping by Man City in the cup in between Liverpool and Villa.

Agree Brentford will be in trouble as well.

Absolutely no reason to believe Luton are safe. They have been on a good run but have tough matches coming up. It's not like their 8 points clear.

An injury or two to key players, some tough matches and they're likely right back in trouble.

Yeah nuts to think luton are safe, and it could be said if they fail to turn the sheff utd game around it will hit them for six

Honestly, the knee jerk reactions last week were mad. That’s Luton safe because they drew at Newcastle? Anyway, long way to go and there’ll be unexpected results as there always are. Still believe we will be fine.

I just don't see us finishing below Forest this season, assuming points penalties would be equal.

Forest and Palace the 2 I'm looking at.

Luton too obviously but reckon they will be OK.

Unfortunately the difference between relegation and safety for Brentford is a certain fellow by the name of Ivan Toney.

If he stays fit they will be more than fine.

I don’t get the confidence you have in Luton. Lost today and may well lose their next 3 games. A run like that is difficult to break out of.
