Absolutely baffling. Iím way at the moment so unable to update the stats, however, I guarantee weíve still got more points against the easier teams than the harder teams still.

The truth is Dick, you always were at "our level". You just could not bring yourself to admit it.

You would think a 40 year old would know his limits by now.

OK, I'll give a post match update.

Without over complicating things.
At this threads inception we were averaging a point a game. 1ppm
Since then we have taken 27 points from 25 games. 1.08ppm
Well over half a season on and no discernible change, or sign of those easier games yet then.

Must admit can't quite understand the fascination of some punters who are attracted to '78 and his debunked Easier Games theory. More often than not it degenerates into name calling or worse. Now we have some posters who pick on grammar errors - on a football forum! In view of today's result would have thought that any remaining credibility in 78's theory has long flown the nest.

Thereís a potentially interesting conversation on here comparing recent form and immediate factors such as injuries with overall long term results. Unfortunately it has got deeply buried beneath the name calling.

No away win all season, couldn't have an easier game than Rochdale, although if you go purely on league places Bury slightly easier, remind me how that one went.

Surely this thread must be dead and buried now?

Well the author is conspicuous in their absence. Maybe now the penny is finally dropping that when it comes to determining whether games are easier or not, there's a lot more to it than looking at the current league position of the opposition.

Remind me of the points per game when comparing top vs bottom half.

Ok then.
In terms of upward improving trends.
We have had 2 winning league runs of 3 victories, one against Gills(a) Blackpool(h) and oxford(a), and then one against Southend(h) Bradford(a) and Donkeys(h).
Chuck a draw with Rochdale(a) and Blackburn(a) on those runs respectively, and you get our two longest leage runs of four without deafeat.
Five of those games were played away and three were played at home
Four games(3wins) were against C78s current so called harder opponents, and four games(3wins) against his easier opponents.
If you can find a pattern in those figures alone, I applaud you.

Regarding injuries, suspensions, transfer windows etc that's surely for another thread because the OP has constantly expressed a desire to keep this as simple as possible, unless it suits his argument otherwise of course.
So since his first post suggested easier games were coming, the simplest analysis shows we currently average 1.08ppm from league matches played since then, compared to 1ppm from league matches up to then.

The distraction.
Although it's been shown that in some previous seasons we've actually fared better against lower opponents (by Buster?) I don't think anyone has ever argued on this thread against the idea that we could and should pick up more points against teams in the lower half or against teams below us.

C78 has been arguing with himself on that one, and then declaring himself proved right  Grin
Actions attributable to only a very small section of society?..

This pretty much says it all.

It's disappointing that C78 could not take the general agreement with the basic statement around getting more points from the (eventual) bottom half and then be open minded about everything else as this would have enhanced the thread.
