Would people have taken 4 points out of 6?

I probably would have..but at the same time no confidence we’ll get promoted. Burge not convincing me as a no.1 and 9 teams out of 10 then get automatic have a 20 goal a season striker..we don’t. So conflicting feelings.

Suppose so, but we look a million miles away from a team capable of finishing in the top 2. We need to find a way to include our centre forward in our play
That's it like, the only thing missing and has been for the past 2 season is a striker that gets goals. Wether that's the players themselves or the system we play is up for debate. I think looking at Grigg and Wykes recond at other clubs it suggests it's the system that's to blame.

I think the sentiment is correct, even if the stats aren't quite. You'll struggle to get promoted if none of your striking options hit double figures, which I think we'd all agree is the likely outcome for us
Got to say, O’Brien doesn’t float my boat and all this stuff about it being Griggs year is shite and he’ll end up being one of our worst signings ever. Excellent goal by Gooch like, need more of that. If him and Maguire don’t do it, no one else will.

Let's be honest it should easily have been 6 apart from burge fucking up we would have won that game plus we missed some good chances

Last season taught us one thing and its that grigg and wyke dont cut it and gooch and maguire were the only ones producing the goals - whether you liked their play or not it was hard to argue with their goal and assist figures for their position. Think both need to be in the team unless someone else proves capable of scoring. Think O'Brien worries me most tbh - he's had our 4 best chances really this season and hasn't looked competent with any of them.

The op said a 20 goal a season striker. Double figures is 10. We will have a 10 goal a season striker...I think.

Yes and if you read it properly, I said the numbers might be slightly off - Coventry had 18 goals if you want to be pedantic (scaled up for the season) - but the sentiment of a high scoring striker being needed is correct and that ours wont even get past 10 never mind higher

We've 4 points from 6 the window isn't shut so we can still strengthen. It's far from the time to panic or become a doom merchant..

It's a decent star to the season. Not spectacular but it doesn't need to be. We just take it a game at a time and most importantly not worry about what teams around us are doing
