Albion have the play-offs in their own hands

The Argus: Oscar Garcia Oscar Garcia

Albion will be in the play-offs if they win their last three games.

Oscar Garcia's side have their destiny in their own hands after a 3-1 defeat for Ipswich at Watford today.

The Seagulls will finish in the top six if they beat Blackpool at the Amex on Monday, Yeovil at home on Friday evening and Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on May 3.

Reading and Ipswich are both a point behind Albion, Forest and Bournemouth three points adrift following a 1-0 home win for Forest against Birmingham.

Watford are five points below Albion but have a game in hand.

Monday's visitors Blackpool have dropped into the relegation zone on goal difference as a result of Millwall winning 2-1 at Middlesbrough.

Yeah thanks Waford.
But we can't keep relying in others to help us, we must go for it ourselves.
I am sure that Oscar and the team know this, but Blackpool and Yeovil won't get a walk over.
So get it right first on team selection and formation, and then tactics,keep the faith.
I just hope that Upson will be fit again , maybe even Buckley or Orlandi, and I also really ,really hope that TK is ok with the rest of the team , and not grumpy.
Team spirit will pull us through.

With Forest to play Bournemouth and Leeds away and Ipswich home to Bournemouth and Burnley away they should cancel each other out with a bit of luck! Reading could be the biggest threat, last game for them is against Burnley who will already be promoted by then so might not try very hard, hopefully Forest will be out of the running by then giving us a similar game.
We need two home wins, Blackpool will be the tougher of the two games as they have a chance of staying up whereas Yeovil don't! All out attack is our only option, every available striker on the bench as back up if we need to push for the wins. Could be that the likes of Cms or Hoskins could be the heroes of our season with a goal that takes us to the play offs. UTA

Watford are not out of the race themselves yet - only 5 points behind with a game in hand. However by beating Ipswich with a 2 goal differential Watford may just have given us a little extra help. I have an increasing feeling that goal difference might determine who finishes 6th.
By the way can anyone tell me if we have won 3 league games in a row this season since I am not sure we have ?
A little concerned about our CB position with Upson's injuries and GG not being well and only getting off his sick bed at Midday yesterday especially as Dunk is the only other CB in the squad.

We must win our two home games. It will put pressure on the other contenders, especially with us playing Yeovil on Friday night. We should win them, but it's going to be nail biting I'm sure. Ipswich have to play Bournemouth. I think Reading are the main threat as they have two home games and are away to Doncaster. I still think we are going to need something at Forest - unfortunately! Watford could get close if they win their game in hand, but they have difficult games. I am just glad we are still well in the mix with 3 games left. It didn't look possible after the Middlesbrough home defeat.

think this season was harder than last; you just have to look at the table and realise that the teams up to 12th place are still in it. The other teams are hoping we slip up now.
The good thing is that blackpool will be coming to the Amex for a win and so will be open and Yeovil are playing for pride so 2 tough games but if we field similar teams then we should be ok.

couple of draws with the teams near us playing each other should help; 74 points would be good but I think 72 will be ok looking at the other teams fixtures.

When we played Blackpool away Calde scored the solitary goal that gave us three points, but that was a match that we reportedly deserved to win, we hit the woodwork twice. The team we put out on that day did not have the attacking edge that we now have, but that edge means nothing if we don't use it.
The stats from yesterday's match show that we didn't have too many shots on or off target, we need to correct that for monday as a lack of attempts suggests a lack of creativity.
Blackpool are in trouble and have to look for three points from us, the first twenty minutes will be vital, none of that slow starting stuff. I don't see Blackpool parking the bus but we could expect an early onslaught hoping to do a Huddersfield, nick an early goal.

After getting it so wrong in our last no way will I predict anything other than a good match with both sides looking for a win.

It all boils down to having the right quality manager and players to do the job, more should have been invested last summer to propel us to the top 2 spots instead of a last minute scramble for 6 th place but unfortunately that is the mentality we are lumbered with.

A few people are saying we can't keep relying on others to slip up, but that is what has put us in the top six as much as our own efforts. I can almost say with certainty that we won't need to win all three games.
The question is, can we get the seven points we probably will need?

Fair comment. Although i still have to pinch myself as we have only really played well in the odd game at hm . Funny really Palace poor for most of second half of last season and play offs. In reality Zaha was the difference and got them up ,now look at them. Unbelievable ,maybe we will get lucky. I think we need Upson back on song though.
Dunk for all his good effort and promise is error prone once a game. GG not well leaves us with Ince in what was his normal role pre this season,which i for one would be happy with. Who knows what can happen in the play offs. But we are not there yet,but i would just like to take family for a trip to wembley to see albion.
What a day that would be. Dreams ;-)

Good question gordongull. However I would be happier and more relaxed if we win the next 3 games which as others have already said will not be an easy task.
I see that statistically we yet again dominated possession (65%) yesterday but didn't win. We really do seem to be more effective with less possession and when playing on 'better pitches'. I suspect because we can play with more tempo on good surfaces and have more 'space' with less possession.

Wouldn't have had our goal if Dunk was not playing. Agree that he did not have his best game but unless we only play 3 at the back then we have no choice.
What doesnt help is when we get on players backs.

What other defender would you play; looks like we will be withoutGreer and Upson or they will not be 100% and that is not good either.

There is rumoured to be at least 200 million sitting in the vaults underneath the Amex, if even a quarter of this were spent on players we would blast our way to the title. Once we get to the prem we get a good 100 million now, so we get it all back and still comply with the farcical FFP rules so it's win win all round. There you go job done. Bloom has the cash, it's a matter of whether he wants a new yacht to go hob nobbing it in Monaco or if he wants Albion to be a serious premier league club and not one season wonders.

That's what happens when squad is not deep enough , 3 genuine central defenders is not enough ... As for Dunk, guy has ability , but makes too many mistakes, from the video highlights he was sold dummies far to easily .
We sold elabd for less than 100k again with to signed replacement ! We may get away with it, but in reality it's poor management , we have three keepers on the books purely so if one is out we have one on the bench incase of a red or injury, yesterday no specialist cover,
On another note I see Dobbie was fighting with a member for Blackpool , while Dobbie was trying to come on as a sub!

Watford are not out of the race themselves yet - only 5 points behind with a game in hand. However by beating Ipswich with a 2 goal differential Watford may just have given us a little extra help. I have an increasing feeling that goal difference might determine who finishes 6th.
By the way can anyone tell me if we have won 3 league games in a row this season since I am not sure we have ?
A little concerned about our CB position with Upson's injuries and GG not being well and only getting off his sick bed at Midday yesterday especially as Dunk is the only other CB in the squad.

An early goal needed to calm the nerves tomorrow, get Blackpool on the back foot straight away and push on for more goals. 3 points tomorrow and again Friday night will put others under pressure Saturday, who knows, we might go to Forest with 6th place already secured! Central defence will be vital, Dunk is up to the job but it would be nice to have Greer and Upson for this one due to their experience. On the CB issue, just noticed Maxi scored for Kilmarnock yesterday and looks to be getting plenty of game time, do the club persist with him or look elsewhere, think he is 23 so if not up to it now is the time to make that decision for the best of both player and club.

With regards to GG , some on here never give the guy enough credit, apparently sick before and after the game, if that had been elabd or Oatway some would be saying " legend" blue blood blah blah..
Those with short memories need to remember pre GG , ie the 7-1 at Huddersfield , which was the most embarrassing defensive performance I have witnessed by a Albion side, GG has faults, but is a great captain and most of all a winner, true character of a man when he could have refused to play , the point now gained at Huddersfield looks a mighty good one!
OG now needs to be brave and stick to the new formation ..

I have been one of those that moaned about Greer at times, but have to agree the bloke is committed, pity he's not younger, same for Upson, both will do another year at champ level! it's what happens if we go up?
With the TK situation I also hope it's not our defence that let's us down after the season they have had, will take the playoffs as being a very successful season all things considered, a playoff final a massive bonus and if promoted, unbelievable! gutted also as I've just realised I am on bloody holiday for the final!

A few comments on how we dominate possession,65% against Huddersfield,but the fact is that possession is mainly in our own half where we don't inflict any damage and of course this allows teams like Huddersfield to reorganise their defence,has been similar all season.
Possession is great when leading but as has been proved a problem when we go a goal down.
Lets have the possession in Blackpools half come Monday.

The club is sitting on our ticket money which we should have a greater say in how it's spent. We need to show that we will not be fobbed off with a second rate team under the broken record of FFP. If we want to be taken seriously as a club we need to demonstrate ambition.

Their raucous support in a rocking stadium puts most clubs support to shame, they have quietly and efficiently gone about their business while we have stagnated, next up for them is a 40,000 capacity refurb and possibly a cup win next season and european tour. We just dont have that pedigree at Albion to be a proper top flight club, only a massive spending spree might get us anywhere near palace now. These are the harsh realities of supporting the Albion.

Spot on Norfolk, Im afraid.

And to think we started it all for them by giving them our top scorer, it could only happen here.

I guess its why when you tell strangers you support Brighton they start laughing.

investment from where? Have you got twenty million or so spare to invest in the squad for signing on and wages?
There is rumoured to be at least 200 million sitting in the vaults underneath the Amex, if even a quarter of this were spent on players we would blast our way to the title. Once we get to the prem we get a good 100 million now, so we get it all back and still comply with the farcical FFP rules so it's win win all round. There you go job done. Bloom has the cash, it's a matter of whether he wants a new yacht to go hob nobbing it in Monaco or if he wants Albion to be a serious premier league club and not one season wonders.
Even if this were true who are you to tell others how to spend their own money? Bloom has put massive amounts into this club why not be delighted about this rather than continually moaning for more.
The club is sitting on our ticket money which we should have a greater say in how it's spent. We need to show that we will not be fobbed off with a second rate team under the broken record of FFP. If we want to be taken seriously as a club we need to demonstrate ambition.
200 million? Exactly where did you get this information? I really don't want to berate you, but it seems a little far-fetched?

On the CB issue, just noticed Maxi scored for Kilmarnock yesterday and looks to be getting plenty of game time, do the club persist with him or look elsewhere, think he is 23 so if not up to it now is the time to make that decision for the best of both player and club.
With regards to GG , some on here never give the guy enough credit, apparently sick before and after the game, if that had been elabd or Oatway some would be saying " legend" blue blood blah blah..
Those with short memories need to remember pre GG , ie the 7-1 at Huddersfield , which was the most embarrassing defensive performance I have witnessed by a Albion side, GG has faults, but is a great captain and most of all a winner, true character of a man when he could have refused to play , the point now gained at Huddersfield looks a mighty good one!
OG now needs to be brave and stick to the new formation ..
A wonderful post.Dunk should take note.
