They finished fourth and we won it. It's a good start but these meaningless stats are beginning to annoy.

We're deffo dropping points v Chelsea / Man City.

I must admit I was saving that stat for our tenth win on the bounce.

United won their first ten then imploded.

Yeah, do recall that...under Big Ron who went on a spending spree that summer & brought in the likes of Jesper Olsen who was a decent player but a bad injury to one of their defenders & Bryan Robson put paid to their season after that run...mind you, they rode their luck in that run so weren't all that!

I also imagine a 32 game accumulator would pay a bit more than 1000-1.

32 game accumulator would be over 20,000 to 1

ChesterDave 25-09-18 11:18 PM

30 games at an average of 2/5 is 24,000/1

Id want around 500/1 just for correctly predicting WDL split of 32 games never mind predicting each individual outcome

The extra 2 games makes it 47435/1.

For the full 38 games, the actual odds would be 357162/1. :haha:

So, 1000/1 you say? :chin:

Charly 26-09-18 01:10 PM

ffs!

Probably why I dont gamble.

red g 26-09-18 01:12 PM

imagine having a quid on that!!! when would your arse fall out?

what would it be £34,000 single on last game of season, shitting it much!!!

think i would have bailed half way through season.

dom9 07-10-18 06:39 PM

It's tight at the top. Three unbeaten teams level on 20 points after seven games.

And we've played two of them already.

If we can somehow start hitting top gear, we're very well placed.

Otherwise, we're showing we can grind out results, whilst not aesthetically pleasing, is nonetheless a progress of a different sort.

Exiled_red 07-10-18 08:00 PM

We need to get the front three firing, defence has been good but the offence has been fairly dire the last few games

Buzzo 07-10-18 08:05 PM

I wonder if it’s worth trying to mix it up a bit, or trying Mane and Salah on different wings - just alter the dynamic a bit and see what comes out of it.

8 games right - 6 wins and 2 draws - 20 from 24...?

So it is

Liverpool 21-10-18 01:14 AM

looking at the table if Spurs beat City next week, City will probably drop to fifth in the table. :jaw:

I think us being in pack challenging them definitely helps us rather than 1 on 1 scrap.

Norbs 21-10-18 01:28 AM

If arsenal win tomorrow they could be top the week after. It's really tight this season

if fixtures play out, City/Spurs will kick off on the Monday fourth vs fifth winner goes top :haha:

foresterbloke 21-10-18 05:18 AM

Bloody hell that is tight

That canít be right? If we win next Sat and City lose to Spurs we are top on our own. Spurs can only go too if we lose at home to Cardiff.

It is tight tho.

true :D if we draw its possible City are fifth, Spurs top on GD. I wouldn't fancy an acca with those results tho :haha:

Liverpool 29-10-18 11:49 PM

over a quarter of the season gone, on course for 98/99 points and still outsiders to win the league :haha:

Think their know how and depth will do us eventually. Psychological advantage with the goal difference.

Us and city are still going to go up several levels as the season progresses.

Think we are more likely to win in Europe.Looking at the rest of the clubs, its only city/barca that we wont do easily over two legs.That format suits us much better.

foresterbloke 30-10-18 01:12 AM

Mahrez has annoyingly settled very well for them.

I have a feeling that City are worried about us.

It's going to be interesting to see how this pans out. Both teams will drop some silly points. It's how they react to those that will be the difference.

If we beat Arsenal on Saturday, it will be a huge statement. Manchester Derby the week after that.

Football is good again.

labourRed 30-10-18 09:02 AM

He'd have been a decent Coutinho replacement but i don't think we really had him as a target.

I have City as the clear favourites and Chelsea are just as likely as us. BUT, I do feel we might have more left in reserve, I feel we are still to peak, we've been grinding out wins and carrying our attacking players to an extent and Keita and Fabinho are still finding their feet.

I think we might improve still but I think City are playing near their peak levels now.

Next game is massive.

Yep. They might have even been top at that point as the collapsed sewer beneath the Kop had meant some postponed games for us.

QPR were annihilated.

I was in the Kop that day, one was a proper maracana-esque run or thats how i remember it :D

"And still Barnes! That's a *fabulous* individual goal!"

Mad how those old commentaries stay with you.


Buzzo 30-10-18 10:24 AM

There was an entire article about that goal in the Guardian last week. Mid air pirouette:rock:

John Barnes QPR - YouTube

Ha, yes.

The Mighty Reds video probably has a lot to do with that.
