    I'd expect us to win this Saturday if we were at home. That said, I'd be disappointed if we didn't win this weekend.

    There's no point urging calm and predicting more of the same though.

    There's also no point panicking if there is more of the same over the next couple of games.

    To be fair I haven't predicted more of the same. I'm expecting an upturn over the next 5. If we don't, then you can hammer me.

    Also folk are predicting we win at least one of the next three, even if they’re saying that 4/5 points with the right level of performance would be ok. That’s an improvement in form so it’s completely inaccurate to suggest otherwise - as we’ve so far won one in eight.

    We've won 1 in 11 league games - that's relegation form.

    Alternatively, we've won or drawn 70.3% of our last 54 league games.

    Numbers are fun.

    Thats how I see it people were saying blackburn were this and that before we played them when they were 7th. They aren't all that, and looked poor when we played them we just couldn't finish. Need to start picking up wins from the next 3.

    We need the right players in the right areas. The chances are falling to the wrong players. We need to address why a raking diagonal is falling to Callum Brittain and not Woodrow or Freiser.

    I've just tossed a coin and it landed on a head once in eight times.

    Heads out.

    EDIT: I'm not comparing our form to a toss of a coin before anyone suggests so, just that variance can work against you over a small sample size (i.e. 8 games)

    We've played Blackpool 103 times but never on September 25th.

    Good job it's not September 24th as we've lost at Bloomfield Road twice before on that date.

    We just need the strikers to start striking for me.
    It might be obvious that goals win matches, but if we could actually convert early chances that we should be then teams have to change their game plans and open up, hopefully leaving more gaps.

    Yo be fair freiser had a great chance with the header, helik had a free header, our other forward odour had a one on one. We're just not clinical enough its worrying.
