We're coming after you Wolves!

Love it.

"They have lost this season"

Guess we're fucked, then.
 
Well yes Wolves can be caught, but it would take an almighty downturn in form for that to happen.
 
Well finish top, they’ll come after us.
 
Except they're not, we continue to move further away from them. I'd much rather they came up with us though than Cardiff, Brizzle or Villa.
 
Fair play, though, most of those posters seem even-keeled.

Rowett still in charge there, I take it?
 
Yes - Rowett is doing well there. Hopefully they piss on the parade at Ashton Gate. Did I mention I fucking hate that lot?

Should I hate them, too? My feeling about them prior to this season was that they have typically been pretty poor but the fans think they should be doing better. Not too different from Wolves. Am I wrong?
 
Who?
As one poster on their forum put:
Lasting 15 games Wolves have more points
Last 10 games Wolves have more points
Last 5 games Wolves have more point.
They aren't closing a gap on us, just the rest of the table.
 
We weren't the best team in the league in 2001/2, nothing like, and there is no way we end up with around 86 points (which is still normally enough to get top two) this season.
 
The average third place point tally over the last 10 seasons is 82.4, that means we need to play as well as Norwich, the 17th place team, to be able to reach that target.
 
My school has a fair few Derby supporting pupils at it and they keep saying this sort of thing to me, my response is effectively what the fans on that site are saying already, "You're going to catch us by consistently acquiring less points than us?

What is the average points total for sides finishing in the top two?
