Next 5 games will tell us where we are..... 10:38 - Oct 25 with 6395 viewsitfcjoe

Plymouth (a)
Wycombe (a)
Oxford (h)
Sunderland (a)
Rotherham (h)

Playing 5 of the top 6 - what do we need to come out of that with?

I'd take 9 points now, in fact I'd bite your hand off for it!

A really tough spell - feel like Wycombe and Rotherham especially will be kryptonite in terms of style for us, so then you are relying on going to Plymouth and Sunderland and outplaying them on their patch.

Would be over the moon if we manage four points from the first two, think our season would be well on track from then.

Need to keep the 2 points per game up - so 10 for me. I must say I am surprised we agreed to rearrange the Wycombe game for this Tuesday after a long trip to Plymouth.

9 would be great. Around about what we need in normal circumstances from 3 away games and 2 home games but here it’s also mostly taking points off rivals.

Although I’d probably take 6+ points and a couple of statement performances. We’re still building and I don’t think anyone has faced a set of fixtures like this. But come out the other side in reasonable shape and we can be confident going forward.

It's a tough run but I'd like to see us be ambitious and aim for 10 points. That would send out a statement and we'd then have a lot of belief that this season could end in success. 7 points or less would be disappointing, 8 or 9 would be okay but not ideal.

10 or more would be ideal.

Massive spell for us and really hard to predict. Rather than points I'm going to say I'd be happy if we come out of that having lost only once.

The ones that bother me for very obvious reasons are (as Jake also says) Wycombe and Rotherham. I can't, hand on heart, see us faring well against either of those when they put together a 10 minute spell pinning us back and slinging balls into the box. We struggle on that front against far inferior sides. So putting one of those two away would be a significant forwards step. Quite fancy us at Plymouth actually, while Oxford/Sunderland both beatable.

11 points would be great if quite optimistic.

If we could manage 3 wins and 2 draws out of that then it would be a real statement.

Perhaps hopefully, I think playing the better sides might help us. Sure we will be severely tested at the back but our 4 up top along with the 2 CM's should enjoy playing against teams that give them a chance to quickly counter or aren't just sitting back.

16 points or Cook out.

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.

It's a really tough set of fixtures, but ones I am particularly interested to see how we fare against our fellow promotion rivals. If our aim is to finish in the top 6, we need results against this lot to peg them back after our sluggish start. They are going to take points off each other too, so lets not forget that. Although Plymouth have started well, I get the impression that Wycombe and Rotherham are the real threats, they both seem to be bulldozing sides out of their path or finding ways to get the job done at the moment. So, 8-9 points would be a decent haul. One thing is for sure, we'll get a far clearer indication of our own standing in this league, once we've come through these 5 games.

I’m looking at the Plymouth and Oxford games as the most winnable, but we could easily come unstuck.
If we can get a win at Plymouth and a draw at Wycombe, then we’d set ourselves up nicely for Oxford at home.
Bit daunting to look at those 5 games at once. Just get the win at Plymouth to kick things off.

I think Rotherham will be the hardest, but not overly optimistic about travelling to Sunderland and Wycombe.

We've got better players than all of those teams, we just need/have to show it. Honestly, if you line up their starting 11's against ours, how many would you swap? We shouldn't be fearing anyone.

Sounds like situations made for Toto. He’s great at defending the box.

However, the most dangerous leftists of all may be certain oversocia- lized types who avoid irritating displays of aggressiveness and refrain from advertising their leftism, but work quietly and unobtrusively to promote collectivist values, “enligh- tened” psychological techniques for socializing children, dependence of the individual on the system, and so forth.

I wouldn’t swap squads, but we’re still in that stage of putting it together. Wycombe and Rotherham know this division and maybe their eleven will simply beat our eleven even if we’ve got better individuals.

If we can lose fewer than 1 and win at least 2 then that’ll be a decent haul.

I would take 9 but think we need 10 at least.


Plymouth (a) - Win
Wycombe (a) - Draw
Oxford (h) - Win
Sunderland (a) - Win
Rotherham (h) - Loss

Could easily see us losing to Wycombe too.

Plymouth - apart from spanking Sheff Wed 3-0 in early Sep they haven't pulled up any trees at home (2-1 v Donny, 1-1 v Fleetwood) so I fancy our chances of a win there.
Wycombe - similar story at home - perfect home record but have played teams mostly near the bottom, but their style of play is horribly effective - I think a 1-1 or even a 1-0 defeat
Oxford - 4 wins in the last 5 including a 5-1 spanking of Accrington and a 3-1 away win at Burton - I think this is a tough game although hopefully our recent run at home will continue - 1-0 to us
Sunderland - I'd take a point here and think we will get it
Rotherham - 5 wins in the last 8 including beating MK away 3-0 on Saturday - this is a tough one and I can see them beating us 1-0

I would take7 or 8 points now - any more is a bonus - any less than 5 would be a concern

2 wins
2 draws
1 loss

8 points with 3 away games and the return legs to try and win later in the season would a realistic and not too bad return IMO.

Obviously crave more, and we're capable or more, but just can't tell how it'll go.

9 would be amazing, but they are really tough games and I fear we are not quite at their level.... yet.

I’d take 7 points, beat Rotherham and Plymouth and draw with Oxford.

I think we'll lose more than one, but it will be the manner of the defeat that will be key.

Get hammered at Wycombe or Rotherham who will know we have a soft underbelly when 'bullied' in a game, it sets us back a bit.

2 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats for me. Those 2 defeats being at Wycombe and Sunderland.
