    1.We are scoring goals, which some of us worried we wouldn't be doing very much of, only 7 teams have scored 10 or more and we are one of them.
    2.Matty godden... I genuinely feel comfortable that he's leading the line, proper forward.
    3. We are currently 7 points better off than we were after 6 games last season, and we'd scored just 3 goals in them 6 games.
    4.Unbeaten
    5.Even though we played terrible today imo, we still scored 3 and got the point at a good side.
    6. We still haven't seen our strongest 11 on the pitch together, which can only be a good thing

    I've enjoyed the season so far.. We will absolutely paste some teams this season and am still fairly confident we can take one of them playoff places come may

    Agree with your positives. In terms of negatives though, I would say the draw at Bolton is an effective 2 point loss to all our rivals, which could prove costly at the end of the season, and secondly that we have had a fairly easy group of fixtures so far, which probably provides a poor guide to where we are truly at. Next week will be our first against a team in the top half of the table, and should provide a better guide to where we should hang our hopes and aspirations this season.

    The team must learn from their mistakes and not just ignore issues. In spite of the great start to the season (which we have seen on occasion in our history) we as fans have every right to feel disappointed that we're not on 16 points right now. The team must try to eradicate conceding soon after scoring (i.e. Oxford, Portsmouth etc), giving away stupid own goals/gift-wrapping goals (Oxford, Portsmouth), committing silly fouls/getting red-carded etc. I really feel we can even take of one of the 2 top spots come May and not have to settle for the playoffs if we just concentrated a little more and played consistently over a full 90 minutes. Granted we have not had our best XI out there, but every team experiences injuries and suspensions. It's time to be greedy and not make excuses. it's frustrating seeing Bolton get slammed 5-0 every week (knowing we should have got 3 points from that match) and giving away a lead in stoppage time today is something that should not have happened.

    Scoring 3 away & not winning is just criminal struggling to take positives from it bar the fact sounds like we got a point but pretty much got out played all game.

    We're a league 1 side and they all make stupid mistakes.
    If no-one made any stupid mistakes, they'd be playing in a higher division.
    Hopefully, we will learn from our mistakes and make less as the season progresses, but then again so will all the other clubs.

    If Bolton get ejected from the league, as looks likely, their results will be expunged, so that won't be an issue.

    Pot half full opinion. We scored 3 at Portsmouth and most people seem happy with that point, and (as you correctly say) we were outplayed yesterday but still scored 3 came away with a point.
    On another point, I noticed yesterday that Charlton - who we did the double over last year but still got promoted - are 2nd in the Championship, and Scunthorpe - who did the double over us but still got relegated - are bottom of League 2.

    There are plenty of positives so far. I'm really happy with the start.

    One thing with Robins' teams is that we generally get better as the season goes on and if that's the case this time again then we're in for a great seasonn.

    Allen should make a huge difference when he finally plays too.

    Remember the season we got promoted we got spanked by Yeovil at home, football can be a strange game but we seem to be getting something out of matches we wouldn't have before.... Bolton game aside which I still blame the officials

    Less criminal than scoring three at home, controlling much of the game, having twice as many chances and not winning....

    Or if you're 3-1 up against 9 men.

    And technically we put 3 in the bag on that day too which shows that our players know where the net is now. Bolton was a funny one really. Robins is right. Nobody will have wanted to play them in their home first game. Had banana skin written all over it.
