I agree with your point over the start too, compare our statler with Dagenham, in their first 6 games theyve played 4 of last seasons bottom 5.
That's a good point. Our most difficult start I can ever remember and it doesn't let up for another 3 weeks. We are probably playing what will end up being the top 10 over the first 2 months. If Chesterfield or Dagenham had our start they'd probably be where we are.

The league table wont take proper shape until November/December. By the time we come around to the return fixtures in 2022 we should have moulded our side and significantly strengthened in the transfer market

While Tuesday was a disappointing result, 1 defeat in 6 with those fixtures is far from a disaster with virtually a new side.
