Apart from away wins though, as all our away wins are against top half, none against the bottom half. #Fact

Have we had many “easier” away games?




bri77

Several matches yes. ZERO wins, thank goodness for easier away games.
The third easiest possible was against Oldham went well didn't it?

Thought I'd check the title of this (C78's) thread. 'Easier games to come.' That's what C78 asserted. So how have we done since the threads inception?
At the time of the opening post we had; 6 points from 2 easier games av 3ppm 0 points from 4 harder games av 0ppm. Total 6 points from 6 games.
Since then we've played 12 more easier games and now average 1.357ppm against bottom half sides. 12 more harder games and now average .875ppm against top half sides. Total 33 points from 30 games.
So what can we deduce using this crude data alone?
We have got fooking miles worse against the easier teams, dropping from an average of 3ppm down to 1.375 ppm. Fortunately we have massively improved against the harder teams, and this has helped maintain our average of around 1 point per game overall.
Conclusion then There were no easier games to come?

It doesn't rhyme?

I’m going to assume this is a joke, otherwise you’re right up there with Rambo, ThreeInABed and Glastonbury on my “Thicker Posters To Come” graph

Damm. Oh well, let it be prose. I was gracious enough to add a question mark in order to invite a reply.

Explain your assumption maestro.




Cobbler78

Explain your assumption maestro.
If your post was serious, then read it again. If you understand what you’ve said then no explanation is needed. If you don’t understand what you’ve said, again, no explanation is needed. Which one is it?

CJ, you are going to need one of these mate. Dickie is quite obstinate.

CJ, you are going to need one of these mate. Dickie is quite obstinate. Yes. Any chance Dickie hails from Billericay?




Tabasco Kid

Nah, MK. Doesnt quite rhyme though.




WasRambo

Nice post cj. Not only does it totally rubbish the theory but it also shows up who actually is the thick one.
He can't stand, or understand that as our form has improved, we're bucking his trend and now getting better results against top sides.
If only he'd listened to the realists who advised that current form is as strong, if not stronger indicator than the raw league position.
He'll learn. Maybe. Not...




Cobbler78

Just to clarify this “bucked trend”
Vs top half 0.875 points per game Vs bottom half 1.357 points per game
Despite playing 2 games less againts teams in the bottom half, we’ve picked up 5 more points compared to games against teams in the top half.
I look forward to the comments after the next 3 games when the gap will be wider. 🎣

He's rattled! Spelling mistakes in every response now....
I doubt he even realises the absurdity of his posts.

The absurdity of facts you mean?





cj

Just to clarify this “bucked trend”
'Bucked trend', what's that got to do with anything? Your over complicating things Your opening post reads, 'Easier games to come' Yet the simplest fact is, 24 matches after your assertion we now have 33points/30games compared to the 6points/6games we had back then. So I'll ask you to explain again. What happened to those easier games?
