    Am I right in thinking that we have to get 3 points from Fulham Away and 1 point from Palace Home (assuming we get nothing from Man U Away)

    Plus, Brighton can't pick up any points whatsoever from their last three games? (Newcastle Home, Arsenal Away, Man City Home)

    Yes we need to get 4 more points than Brighton from the 3 games. Big ask, but possible.

    That's a tall order considering teams don't seem to want to score against Brighton these days.

    Assuming Cardiff beat Fulham & Brighton beat Newcastle then Arsenal are a spanner in the works.

    They run hot and cold and it could well be that Brighton get a point or even all three before we play Palace a week Saturday.

    Do we really have any hope if Brighton pick up another 3 points?

    Brighton three points ahead of us. Nine points available, Brighton need six to guarantee safety.

    Remaining fixtures

    Saturday 27th April
    Brighton v Newcastle

    Sunday 5th May
    Arsenal v Brighton

    Sunday 12th May
    Brighton v Man City.

    If they lose all three, we need four points.

    Get a draw against Newcastle, we’ll need two wins, or a win and two draws.

    A win against Newcastle and we’re pretty much fucked.

    I still think we'll get something at Old Trafford. Maybe not a win.. I see a tense final day.

    How will Brighton fare against Newcastle though. Their game plan has been defend defend defend but this one they need to win.

    That’s my worry.

    We go to Man U needing a draw.

    We hold on for 85 minutes, have a goal disallowed and they run up the other end and score, or get a dodgy pen or something

    The only bright spot that I can see for us is that Brighton cannot score goals.

    the whoopsies are effectively 4 points ahead of us, when you factor in goal difference. We have 9 to play for and I think we have 7 points in us, if we play to the best of our ability and have some tremendous amount of luck. Newcastle are the sticking pint, they have nothing to play for.

    Stranger things happen at sea, but I can't see it, as there are too many ifs and ands, and if ifs and ands were pots and pans, there'd be no more work for tinkers.

    I think 6 points (Fulham & Palace) will do it, Rafa will not be on the beach when Brighton entertain Newcastle that guy is so competitive he wouldn't let his grand kids win at tidily winks.
    My only concern is Arsenal i wouldn't be surprised that Brighton get something there.

    They're effectively 3.5 points ahead, not four.
