    I have decided to post the weekly stats in one thread again so that maybe the thread can be pinned like last season.

    We have now slipped below the 40 point line and need to arrest the losing run this weekend, hopefully with a bit more attacking intent. The passing stats look good but when its all between Bachmann, Sierralta & WTE it means nothing. What is telling is the low number of shots on target and big chances created. We have a potentially exciting attack and are making so little use of it.

    Each survival season has relied on a 3-4 match boost. QSF when we were lucky to play all the relegation favourites in a row. Javi, Silva and Mazzari with early season results. Pearson had a boost but we were dead in the water by that point.

    Xisco probably needs to get that boost in, best opportunity starts on Saturday (well probably last Saturday...). No pressure mate.

    Back above the 40 point line for this week at least...

    I'd certainly expect some points from three of the next six games; Newcastle, Leeds, Liverpool, Everton, Southampton and Arsenal. I hope for eight points, two wins, two draws and two defeats, but I wouldn't want to predict which result against which team. Given our counter-attacking style I think we'll have more joy attack wise against the better teams who will have more possession. The worry is we may conced at a faster rate!

    Thanks for doing this Hornet 77 - I do like a stat!

    Everyone has their own little way of judging how well we are doing, on track or not etc.

    I've been trying to decide if 7 points from these 6 games is good or not.

    I’d say points could easily be 0 v Man City, Man Utd, Liverpool and Chelsea. That’s 8 games.

    Leaves 30 games. That’s 5 blocks of 6. If we get 7 points in each block that makes 35 points, which I’d imagine would be right on the line for 17th.

    So I guess we could call this first block of games on par. Not bad, maybe a slight missed opportunity overall.

    In a vacuum, points-wise 7 is almost solid enough, as we can sort of see from the table. But take the context into account, including the nature of the performances and the level of opponent, and it's pretty poor.

    It's also boosted enormously by Villa deciding to basically forget when the season started and turn up having stepped off the plane from the Bahamas without any preparation. We wouldn't be expected to win that on paper 9 times out of 10, and I don't think anyone would be predicting three points if the reverse fixture happened to be coming up this Saturday.

    I'd definitely have taken 7 points from the first 6 games if you'd offered it before the season started, even with the relatively kind fixtures. If you get off to a shocker (like Narrch) you're playing catch-up from the start, especially as one of the Prem's smaller clubs.

    An update now after all of the matchweek 6 fixtures:

    I'd have taken 7 points from 6 games at the start of the season as this keeps us above the run-rate for 40 points.

    This would be reassuring if it wasn't for the Head-to-Head comparison with our relegation season in 19/20 when in the corresponding fixtures we had four wins and 2 draws, gaining 14 points!

    For all the doom and gloom, a lot of the stats for this season so far are actually better than the majority of our other seasons. Long way to go and appreciate this will probably have changed significantly after the November fixtures but it's not a bad start

    It's crazy to look at the round-by-round position in the table and to see evidence showing how we do not finish seasons strongly. It looks like every year, from 32nd match to final match, we lost places. Always felt that way anecdotally, but really clear with the data.

    I guess last season we finished strongly overall, and we picked up under Pearson before falling flat after a horrendous start to the season two seasons ago, but I just want one Premier League season where we finish strongly!
