By definition it's not hard. Number of points per game played is THE measure. Certainly is after 46 games is it not? Why would it not be at this juncture? Form comes into play as a result of injuries to key players. Momentum is a big factor impacting form due to a string of good/bad results. Even the bloody weather can be a determinant degree of freedom or restraint. If, and I mean if, we have the strongest squad in the league, the best tactical manager/coaches, we stand a decent chance. Luck re injuries of key players will undoubtably play a part - as will the luck of our competition. The owners of Littlewoods Pools figured that out.
