I just cannot see where the next 3 points is coming from. As said in the match thread, we're slowly drowning and getting cut adrift from those above us. 12 games in that's massive alarm bells surely?
Dec/Jan is massive for us. If we lose a lot of those games yes we're in massive trouble. Win quite a few of them (which I still believe we can do - last night MR arguably played into Brum's hands making sure we were tight at the back rather than letting our attacking instincts to the fore and I think we lost more than we gained from the switch) and we're more than capable of staying up.

I expect MR to continue with this new system as we kept a clean sheet and two up top saw us under pressure, and i don't mind that so much against the stronger teams. But against 'smaller' teams we have to back ourselves to compete and score. Hopefully when Godden returns he'll be eager to try Godden and Walker together.

MR usually stumbles upon a system that works for us - hopefully he'll do it again.

That won’t be happening as we don’t have any money
You said on another thread that Robins has/had been backed. So you now don’t think he will be “backed” in January as we don’t have any money? 🤔
What’s changed?

He’s kept some back for Jan is my guess and he’s gonna need it

We’ve just had Wilson’s money
A proportion of the Wilson money was likely used to pay the first instalment of Walker's transfer fee.

The rest of which has probably been put aside to mitigate the fallout of no fans coming back this season.

Therefore, Robins isn't likely to see a penny of that in January.

A quarter of the season gone, and 9 points, that average equates to 36 points for the full season, and we have played a lot of the hardest teams once. We need to better the first quarter by 1 win in each of the 3 remaining quarters and a couple of extra draws. that would get us close to the 50 point target, which I think will be more than enough this season.
No need to worry yet.

...and to think some posters were actually claiming that some of our players were worth 10s of millions....
