    An interesting snapshot of all our results without playing the top 6.

    We're beating who we're expecting to beat, and we're getting draws or wins generally against mid table teams and we lose fairly consistently against the Top 6 with mixed performances. It's what I consider a good base as it's sustainable. You aren't going to beat the Top 6 reliably without being a Top 6 side, but you are going to beat the lower teams more reliably if you're doing the right things.

    Looking at those results, there's a few where we could/should have had more points. The only two I can see where we got more points than we deserved were Burnley & Leicester at home.

    43 points from 22 games ie almost 2 points per game. Very impressive.

    If we could be a bit more negative against teh top 6 I think we can pick up some more points against them

    Something strange which I noticed looking at the "form" part of the PL table. It appears that of the last 50 PL matches only 4 have resulted in a draw (8%).

    Perhaps this is normal, but without giving it too much thought I would have assumed that results averaged into even one third splits for W/D/L.

    Maybe this is just a demonstration of the huge gulf in class between the top 6 and the bottom half of the league?

    If we beat the top 6, we’d be in the top 6.

    Or maybe top 7.

    If 18 points equals the cup, does that mean a team who enters at the extra preliminary rounds can get to the 1st or 2nd round and win the cup?

    Or if they draw and win for 4/5 rounds they get it?

    Correct, it’s like a handicap system for the weaker teams.

    I think this topic's subject needs an update.

    We've progressed well past 18-19 points now.

    Any update on the Bottom 14 table?

    I suspect we’re bossing it.

    That really does feel like 3 points dropped, which is a sign of how well we are playing this season.

    The current position is:
    • 9 points better than this time last year (46 vs 37). This is the same as after the last game.
    • 9 points better than the comparable fixtures last year (46 vs 37). This is 3 points worse than after the last game.
    • 11 points better than the '40 point' line (46 vs 35). This is 1 points worse than after the last game.

    Not quite yet...

    The current position is:
    • 12 points better than this time last year (49 vs 37). This is 3 points better than after the last game.
    • 12 points better than the comparable fixtures last year (49 vs 37). This is 3 points better than after the last game.
    • 13 points better than the '40 point' line (49 vs 36). This is 2 points better than after the last game.

    I think the graph looks more impressive by not extending the y-axis. Sort of like there is no way to mathematically comprehend how many points we've accumulated

    David has not paid for an extension to the y axis - that is the problem

    Times are hard, I can’t go wasting my money on any axis, let alone the y one.

    You’d be better off taking the ‘Hennessey defence’ and denying all knowledge of the Axis from now on.

    Gaah! I admit defeat! I can't keep the 50 point line away without throwing away my (limited) integrity.

    Far from a classic, but anther point does get us up to the 50 point level. So how many points might we pick up? Play like tonight and not many, lets just wait and see...

    The current position is:
    • 12 points better than this time last year (50 vs 38). This is the same as after the last game.
    • 12 points better than the comparable fixtures last year (50 vs 38). This is the same as after the last game
    • 13 points better than the '40 point' line (50 vs 37). This is the same as after the last game

    Plus our 3rd ever best start in the top flight after this many games! We didn't play well tonight but this is a great season {as long as we beat Man City}

    I was expecting more of a celebration on the axis upgrade.

    Maybe 50 now feels like a minimum expectation which I guess shows how far we've come as a Premier League team.

    I still think we will get at least 4 more points though. Draw - draw - win for 55 would be amazing.

    You are right on the celebration point. What a treble season this could be. FA Cup win, 7th place AND forcing David to change the y-axis on his graph before the end of the season. We have one of the treble already and its been the hardest of all.

    I don't like it, makes the graph look tall and will make us look bad next season.

    Seems to me Davidmsawyer has ruined our season by increasing the y axis - it has led to a complete crumble in form - and the only good crumbles are rhubarb or gooseberry as everyone knows.

    Don't blame me - blame the players! I'm currently drinking red wine and cooking for the family to distract myself. I'll do an update before the next game.

    That said - I'm pretty sure even this seasons bad of end form is nothing compared to previous seasons
