Well here we go again.

I was going to leave this till about ten games but its all set to go and have been asked by a couple of people to put them up.

Full Table with 4 & 5 game form (this will change to 4 and 6 game form next table)

Gaps for Fulham to 6th & 2nd

Projected points for 6th place and Fulham based on full season projection

What we need to do

Yes its way too early...but here it is. Any ideas for different tables relating to all of this please let me know.














Just the views of a long term fan

I know people will say it is early days and all that but, I really feel from here on out every game is a vital game.  We need to grind out points which means we need Ipswich match like performances and no more Sheff Wednesday performances.  Personally hopeing for at least a 22W 11D and 8L season or better. 

COYW!

That's just not accurate really. After the 1st International Break last season Reading were 15th and 2 Points off the Play-Offs and ended up finishing 3rd, 10 Points ahead of 7th, despite the fact they had some absolutely horrendous performances/results throughout the season.

I understand that and really admire teams that do that but, at what point do we say every game matters?  10 games in 20 games in?  For me it needs to be now.  We need to say that every game from now matters.  That every point matters.  Otherwise at some point the season just slips away and we look back saying oh, that is when we should have really focused and made the effort. 

For me the time is now if we are going to make a push for promotion.  Now is when we say this is it and we fight and grind every point we can out of every fixture.

Agree.

To say otherwise is a bit like not bothering to put any effort into your career on the basis that you might win the lottery. Yes you might go on an exceptional surge at some point but it's unlikely so we cannot rely on it. Last season we still only scraped into the play-offs with a bit of luck with Leeds' capitulation. We need to aim higher this year.

I doubt that Jokanovic and the players think or say that games do not matter that much, because it's still early. They wanted the 3 points against Ipswich as much as against Sheffield Wednesday and as much as they will want them against Cardiff, etc. Obviously there will be ups and downs, good days and bad days, days where mistakes will be made or the opponent will be better, but that doesn't mean that the game does not matter for them.

MJG asked for ideas for similar projections.  We have a thread started 114 days ago that has reached 405 pages.  How many pages will it get to by the close of the transfer window in three and a bit days time?  At the average rate of posting I calculate it should get to 417.  But intuition suggests somewhere in the mid to high 420s more likely.  MJG (and others) views on this weighty matter welcomed.
