I know the table is irrelevant 3 games in, but...

Recommended Posts


Smith needs to get four points  this week. So basically a win against Huddersfield and a point from Millwall.

Nope, for me it’s six points required. That probably puts us within striking distance (in touch) after 5 games.  
And…..I think we will get the six points!

The table is relevant, pre-season isn’t.  I thought we had a tough run of fixtures at the start of last season - not this.  Smith needs to go.

We face Huddersfield and Millwall at home next week.

For me it's 6 points or Smith gets fired. Anything less is not good enough. I hope and expect the board to be thinking similar

I dont mind starting the season slowly at all, the usual good omens of seasons past with building momentum. So it bodes well to me to have a slow start, however if Dean 'Gaffney' Smith (same levels of talent) doesnt sort it out the shots to goals/winning problem quickly then we have to get rid and get some fresh managerial talent in. The squad is a top 6 one on paper hands down, I just don't see a direction or style of play under Gaffney and hence a waste of potential of the team.

For me he gets 2 more games and it's a 4 point minimum or 'Dean and Well ard' get the hook!

It is really bad for confidence. 

Farke had some dodgy starts in the Championship, but we were never bottom.

I think the most telling thing from today was when Mark Rivers said on Canary Call that Dean Smith is "boring", and he switches off when Smith is talking. When asked if the players would do the same, he said "of course they would".

Behave.

We’ve played Hull, Wigan and Cardiff. I’m interested to know what points tally you’d have expected from those games. Minimum of 7, IMO. It doesn’t matter if these were the first 3, the last 3 or a random mid-season 3 games; our return is diabolical.

Wait, what?

In the original post I said that's not how I thought it would look, indicating i would have expected better.

I dont understand your comment. You are literally agreeing with my opening post 🤔

It's like you're trying to make a point that isn't there to be made...

In context then, your response to Winning 25 makes no sense (which is what my reply is to, not your thread-starter). Stop arguing with yourself!

I said the table is irrelevant after only 3 games. Which it is. 

He said it was relevant. I can't believe I'm having to explain this.

Go have a little lay down.

Yeah but Rivers also said keep getting the ball to Hernandez, he's exciting and a great player to only then essentially say he's rubbish and should have played Sinani instead,  even though he's not seen Sinani play.

He also said he hates teams who pass out from the back and much prefers a direct 4-4-2. All whilst simultaneously harking back to the Farke days without the faintest sense of irony.

So I'm not sure he's the best to rely on, as good a player he once was.

I reckon nobody would have bet on us, Middlesbrough and West Brom all being in the bottom 6 with no wins between us!

Anyone pulling their hair out after THREE games is insane.

We're playing well ... let things blend and we'll be more than fine.

This!

But alas, haters gonna hate and pant wetters gonna be wet.

The strange things to me is, haters and wetters always have to blame someone else for hating or being wet.

Same with moaners……

Never understand why people think points in the first 6% of the season are less important than points in the last 6%🤷

I think it's more the fact the obvious issues from last season under Smith are still present. Giving away cheap goals from simple errors, poor finishing at the other end and no passion or obvious style of tactical play. Can't score, can't defend. You can "play" as well as you like but it's a results game and currently Smith is losing.

I’m saying it’s NOT irrelevant. You can’t claim it to be irrevelant while pointing at it shouting “EVERYONE, LOOK!”

The table is a reflection of form and being bottom at ANY time (yes, even after only 6% of the season) is damning. 
 

Had that lie down, made no difference. Your turn.
