Question for any stats nerds, what's the greatest amount of goals ever scored only to not reach top six?

Sounds like a kick in the nads when you put it that way! To get to the same points as Posh last year we would need 22 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses....not sure if that sounds any better really.

Automatic promotion is already gone, imo. It needs HMS Pisstheleague form to start tonight and continue for the remaining 35 games thereafter to even be a possibility. We don't look like we can achieve that. We're playing for 5th or 6th now I suspect.

in the last 6 games we have averaged 1.83 points per game, if repeated across the remaining 34 games that would give us 62 more points, 76 in total, so we are currently in play off form despite the angst being displayed on here.

To make an automatic slot, we would need to have a couple of winning runs, which is quite possible given the squad we have, and the fact that other squads depths yet to be tested by the long season and the winter months.

A strong second half of the season, come 5th or 6th, form side going into the play offs.

Worked out ok last time that happened đź’Ş

That's true regarding our last 6 games but it's unlikely we'll have another run of 6 games that includes the worst two sides in the league at home along with three away games against sides in the bottom half. We will inevitably have runs of 6 games where we will struggle to pick up 11 points so when the fixtures are kinder we need to pick up more than that.

To make an automatic slot we need over 2 points per game now and we don't look capable of sustaining that form over 34 games.

We need to play well against the better teams, and start taking points off them. And I think playing against them might actually suit us more. We'll see.

Tonight's a big test of Cook's ability to motivate the team and manage games. Win and/or good display and things are maybe more encouraging. Defeat and/or another collapse from a good position and it'll be a long winter.

Mullet Gtsb Blue badger Bloots N2 Blue ITFC Joe …and the rest. Do you not understand that these forums have massive sway these days? You’ve killed it. We may go on to bigger better things, who knows? Your bitching and whining on here is picked up and has a massive ripple effect. Fking knobs the lot of you. For weeks you’ve been stamping your feet like little girls and it gets picked up when all you needed to do was ride it out for a bit. Pathetic. Cook always comes good, he always has done, talk to any Pompey, Wigan or Chesterfield fan. I’m in Pompey tonight and they’re all shaking their heads. Dkheads the lot of you. Happy to get banned on the back of this. You’re ridiculous. The ramifications are massive which may be placated with money but fk me; learn to kick a ball and know what you’re talking about before you lash out in anger. A massive shame and a massive shame on you. Cook is working hard. What are you doing other than idly pointing fingers and drawing on nonsense stats. Nothing but contempt for you lot and your baseless insights into football when you’ve never even kicked a ball.

I don't really get the argument that playing against better teams will suit us better. Our three wins have come agisndt sides who are in the bottom half, two of them really struggling. We've not beaten any of the sides in the top half that we've played yet.

In another clutching-at-straws special in terms of positive outlook, we can average 2 points a game while losing 1 in every 3 games. Ok, that assumes no draws, but to be able to lose a third of your games and still have automatic promotion form makes me a little more cheerful, however unlikely it is.

We need more than 2 points a game. 2 points a game only takes us to 82 points, which won't be enough for automatic promotion.

3 points available each game though, so we only need 66.6%. I got more than that in my English O Level, so shouldn't be too hard!

As pleasing as a bit of an upturn is, I'm finding all this talk of automatic promotion or being in the POs positions by Christmas all very entertaining. Must be something in the water.

Didn’t suit us very well when we played Bolton.

I'm not sure how you got more than that in your O level if you think 66.66% of 3 is more than 2. The more than is crucial here, 2 points per game will likely see us 4th at best.

To get into the playoffs we're going to need to beat at least one top half team. We haven't managed that at all yet. We are not displaying playoff form purely because we've managed to win 2 of our last 6 games against teams in the bottom half.

We are in play off form but against the lowest teams in the league. Last season we started well but if you watched the games you could see we were really bad and just scraping past really poor teams. We were worked out by the second half of the season.

We won't continue this run over the next month but will hopefully pick up the odd 3 points.
