How many points from our first five then?

Recommended Posts

Could be anything. I'm led to believe Wagner really wants to put fitness work into the lads and with a pre-season that can go two ways. Bomb out of the blocks with a team that's much sharper and fitter (think Bielsa's Leeds) than others, or start slowly (like Farke's teams) as they're still recovering a little/not fully grooved in.

I think if we get 4 points from the first two, we could power off to a really good start. But it's a pretty big if.

Who knows but 9 pts from Hull, Huddersfield and Rotheram should be realistic.

October looks fairly tasty, could be 0 points out of that lot.

Wagner needs a good start and that fixture list looks pretty kind.

I heard last night that the latest German God has six weeks from the season start to 'make an impression' otherwise yet another managerial change! One might suggest that our appalling run in last season and ZERO goals scored in last FIVE home matches was enough of an 'impression' for him to have been released already! 

The August fixtures do look reasonably kind for him, though, so the axe may get deferred until October.

Gonna stick my neck out this season & narrow it down to 0-15*
 

Will actually go further, and uncharacteristically (for me)  forecast season total : 0-138 pts*

 

*depending on success of recruitment, coaching and squad morale.

Don't even know the teams or how we'll be playing yet! lol

But I'd say Hull will be a draw, cause it's opening day. (+1)

Saints - who knows how either of us will look, so play it safe with 1pt there too. (+1)

I think out of the opening 5 games, Millwall and Rotherham are the most likely to be 3 pointers. (+6)

Huddersfield, again who knows at their place.  You'd expect a win though (+3) .

So, 11 points.  Probably about what you'd expect too(?).

I suppose the one benefit of us playing so badly last season is that many of our games are unlikely to be picked for Sky, so not subject to last minute amendments!

We ALWAYS start slowly even in good seasons!

Yeah, we do. Let's go with 7 points!
