Last season we had 24 points after 15 games, and we cruised easily into the play offs by the end of the season
Only 3 points worse off this year and that's after a horrendous injury list

Perhaps not quite as bad as everyone makes out?

If you think we cruised into the playoffs , your deluded mate.

But your only after a response to wind people up, because you've got what you wanted.

It's a valid point but last season we spent a lot of time in the top five, where this season's a lot like out first season in the Conference that we couldn't brake into that Play Off places. I think we have a good chance at Wrexham and Torquay gets us away from from home and playing teams that are going to come out to attack us and we can play on the counter attack football and exploit them where the last 4 fixtures only Chester had a go and we beat them.

Not exactly a 'horrendous' injury list. Especially given the fact the manager signed a player who has a track record of being injured.

As for being 3 points worse off, in the first 15 games we've played, 10 of those are currently in the bottom half.

Oh and we're still in this league. So this play-off campaign didn't exactly work out well either.

And last years winners only had 27 at the same stage but still managed to win the league with a 19 point margin.
And on the crowd front of the five teams we have played at home this year that we also played last year we are up by an aggregate of 200, thats 4 grand up (approx.)

How can pointing out facts be a wind-up?

Except maybe for people who'd rather stick with their opinions than face the facts.

Yes but this time last year most were saying it was not good enough at that stage.



If the football is bad you can always watch the gulls.

As I am sure Luton fans were last year. But it just goes to show despite only having 27 points and 8 points behind the leaders in early October, as Luton were, it is quite possible to turn this around to winning the league by 19 points so now is not the time to panic with any knee jerk reactions.
