Of the eight games we have played which also took place last year we are 2 points better off! Mansfield was a 3 point negative swing but it was offset by Crewe in the previous game.

Game - Last Year - This Year - Difference

Stevenage a L - L 0
Wycombe a L - L 0
Donny H L - D +1
Crewe H L - W +3
Mansfield A W - L -3
Accrington A D - W +2
Yeovil H W-W 0
Newport A D-L -1

On balance we're on target to repeat last year's mid-table finish. I'd take that now with a view to targeting next yield for a top 7 spot, provided we stick with RS. If we don't they I would allow for another "transitional" year. The club has generally been more successful sticking with a stable management team. Swapping managers rarely yields quick fixes. There are still players on the books who the current manager inherited, plus he has yet to see every team first hand at this level.

Perhaps we could repeat the Dean Court performance of Newell's first year,by carrying JF shoulder high for avoiding relegation.

A never to be forgotten moment which still makes me laugh. Especially as he learned so much from that near miss to make sure the next season   would result in...relegation!

Laugh? I cringed at the time and feel very uncomfortable being reminded about it!

I am not sure we need an analyst to tell us we are going to be average again this term.

Courtesy of Luton's 30 point deduction if I remember rightly!

I remember looking at that and being more disgusted by it than I was when I stepped in Alsatian police dog  sh.it on the pitch .
Funny how you always remember truly cringeworthy moments.

We need an analyst to tell as to why contrary to all our experiences we live in hope.

Average might still be a bit of a stretch for us this season Herts..

That was what I was thinking when I looked at the results so far. Although we came 14th last year we were only 8 points off the play-offs. We are 2 points better off with around 1/5th of the season gone, so that equates to 10 extra points after 46 games  

For all the soul searching and predictions of doom  we are only 4 points off the play-offs now with two home games to come!!
