Default A Touch of Realism

So everyone is frustrated with our "average" start to the season. Some even suggesting if we don't win on Saturday we will already be too far behind to challenge for the title. Rubbish!

If we average 2 points a game it pretty much guarantees us being in the mix at the end of the season. In fact if we would have averaged 2 points a game we would have finished top of the table the last 4 seasons.

Dean Saunders said this when he was manager. Over a season generally look to win at home and get a point away and average 2 points a match. On that reckoning, having played 4 away matches and 2 home we should have 10 points to be on target for finishing top or there abouts. We have 9 points despite having a team still getting to know each other and having played some good teams. We are only 1 point off target and a win away on Saturday would actually put us ahead of target.

Yes, I, the same as everyone else, was hoping we'd stroll this league with the quality of signings we have had but things aren't as bad as some are making out.

First 6 games of the 1977/78 season, does it ring a bell. W2,D3,L1, seems familiar. Do you need to panic after 6 games, go on if you want to, but leave me out. These current owners are not losers, have faith.

Sensible and balanced post on Red Passion?

I predict this will be the shortest thread for months...

Stop talking sense, you know it won't work!
Torquay had the league won at Christmas but strange that they are still in this league

Biggest over reaction I have heard/seen in years on here last night.

Yes a long way to go yet and no cause for panic. According to the manager though, he thought it was nip and tuck last night, an even game. Really? If he thinks that he clearly was watching a different game to the rest of the away support. Grimsby were much better and illustrated that there is much to be done if we are to challenge at the end of the season.

Do wrexham pass the "eye test" at the moment ? No.

But we are a far better proposition than we were last season, far more entertaining and playing with 2 strikers !!

We will be in the playoffs at the very least.
