Thread: Worst home record in the entire league

  1. #1

    Worst home record in the entire league

    We've now played 12 games at home in the league this season. We're currently bottom of the 'home' league table with a dreadful 7 points from 12 games. This is how we compare with all 4 divisions:

    Gillingham (bottom of League 1) - 9 points
    Oldham Athletic (bottom of League 2) - 8 points
    Cardiff City - 7 points.

    Both Burnley and Watford have 7 points but have played fewer games than Cardiff City.

    How does our form compare with previous Cardiff City seasons?

    1994/95 - 2-3-7 13-17 Failed to score in 4, kept 2 clean sheets
    1985/86 - 2-3-7 8-16 Failed to score in 6, kept 2 clean sheets
    1984/85 - 2-2-8 14-28 Failed to score in 3, kept 1 clean sheet
    2021/22 - 2-1-9 9-19 Failed to score in 7, kept no clean sheets

    In short, our home form from the start of the season is the worst it has ever been over 12 games. It is a truly shocking record, particularly when you think we had some pretty woeful Cardiff sides in the 80s and 90s.

    5 is the lowest number of home wins we've recorded in a full season. We've never lost more than 13 home fixtures in a season.

    Our remaining visitors to our fortress are Nottingham Forest, Peterborough United, Coventry City, Blackpool, Fulham, Derby County, Preston North End, Stoke City, Swansea City, Luton Town and Birmingham City. We need to find a way of picking up results at home and fast!

    as an aside.....guess who holds a unique record?
    Robert Earnshaw is the only player to have scored a hat-trick in the Premier League, all three divisions of the English Football League, the League Cup, the FA Cup, and for his country in an international match.

    Derby once amassed a total of 6 points in a season.
    We are already better than that.

    That was the Premier League so we could definitely outdo their 13 home defeats

    It's not that much of a surprise really. The onus is usually on the home side to take the game to the away side, not always, but in most cases, especially in the championship. We are not assertive enough at home. we don't seem to go out to win, rather, we react when we go a goal down. Morison needs to find a way, although it must be difficult when the midfield three are slightly more mobile than a traffic cone. We need a player or two in the midfield as a matter of urgency, they don't create a thing.

    Agree with that. Our first half record must be just about the worst in the football league too. I expect if we played Shrewsbury Ladies team we would start with three centre backs eight defensive players hope to keep it tight for the first thirty minutes and perhaps bring on a couple of attacking players with twenty minutes to go.

    We are too defensive, that's fine if we are calculated about playing that way, like hitting teams on the break or switching tactics when the game is swaying our way. We don't do that, and we play defensively because the management team know that we aren't good enough to play in a more assertive way. The biggest concern though is that it isn't working and morison must find another way. Two in midfield is a must, or a change in formation. Wing backs is all we have and it hasn't worked. We need something from the middle of the pitch urgently.

    Yes, our first half record is also the worst in the league. Only Everton have amassed less first half points than us but they've played 6 games less.

    Our record of scoring only 3 first half goals all season in the league is comfortably the worst as well.

    I'm looking through some tables. Cambridge United lost 18 at home in 1984/85 in Division 3. Doncaster lost 17 at home in 1997/98 in the bottom tier. I think it would take some doing to be worse than that.
