9 from 7 matches is probably not the start some were expecting from us. Over the course of the season that would give us our worst points tally since the 2004/5 season where we were fighting relegation for much of it following the sales of some key players.

Early days and all that, but if a playoff place requires 75 points, we're looking at 1.69 points a game, or 78 points season form. Carry on our form for another 7 games and we're then looking at 1.78 points a game, or 82 points season form. At the moment there's no suggestion that we're anywhere near the running.
