Sorry if there's already one of these going but thought it would be a good idea to have a thread to discuss scores results for games not involving us,

Forest Derby currently 1-1 as it stands will be a result suited to us even at this early stage.

Watched it. Forest were awful. Some 'names' amongst their team/squad, but they were lucky to get anything. Think that may be 7 home games without a win now. Derby were a bit better, though it was mainly their youngsters coming through that impressed (Knight and Lawrence).

Barnsley 1 nil up against a 10 man QPR. We could slip into the bottom 3 today

Looking highly likely we will be sitting in the bottom three by the end of tonight's fixtures

Won't be coming out of it any time soon
That's my opinion too after last night's showing. I was really optimistic before the start of the season. However we just need to be better than 3 other sides, hopefully Robins can turn the tide.

Doesn’t matter as long as you’re not in there after the final game.

I agree but I can only see another hammering on Friday which really doesn't help going in to the more winnable games

With Derby winning, we're in the bottom 3 only because Forest the same points but a better goal difference. The Trees win or draw against Luton tonight and we'll be down there on points as well.

Last season's table at same stage:

none of the bottom 6 this time last year got relegated and they'd played 14 games at this stage but you carry on being a drama queen.

I repeat none of the bottom 6 at this stage last season got relegated. Stoke and Barnsley had worse PPT ratio than ours, worse GPG ratio than ours and worse goal difference than ours and both stayed up.

The 3 relegated teams were 7, 11 and 14 points ahead of them respectively. Stop being a drama queen.

but the remaining 38 games of this season do. You're making a colossal fool of yourself.
Nothing is settled after 8 games of a 46 game season.

Forest had iannou sent off (hopefully a 2 or 3 match ban, so he misses the game against us)

Rotherham are competing much better than us so far this season which I find fairly inexcusable.

Better equipped possibly as wasn’t too long before they bounced back

followed by the sarcastic but it's ok everyone's saying don't panic remark and the post about where are the goals coming from.
We all know we're struggling for goals, but again, with only 8 games gone, there's time to put that right, that doesn't mean we will, but it's too early for a meltdown.
