Going back to our inability to win by more than one goal, that table highlights the issue. Of those 6 games we've only lost 1. That means in 5 of those matches we've scored the same or more than the opposition and yet our goal difference is still 0!

I should have clarified, as I did in my original post on another thread. I'm pleased we're now winning more regularly. It would just make the last few minutes of a match a whole lot more relaxing if we had more than a 1 goal lead.

I guess it was more to show how **** we've been for such a long time and not intended to be a comment on how we are doing now.

Certainly good reading! Hopefully we can score a few more, it's not like creating chances is the problem, it's actually putting them away, even Demi's goal was very lucky. Thank god for the unexpected resurgence of Dennis!

The back four has certainly looked better in recent weeks!

Good I'd love us to give someone a tanking, when was the last time that happened?

I know people like big wins but it winds up the opposition much more if you win by a dodgy penalty or an offside goal. If you’re winning four zip the opposition fans have already gone home but a 90th minute own goal and you can really enjoy giving them the ****er sign. That is the true spirit of football. One of my favourite ever goals was Freddy’s late penalty against Northampton in the 95 home play off semi. Nicolau with the dive, what a legend. Or Mike Marsh’s last minute thunderbolt against Ipswich. They were so gutted as their play off dreams were dashed. What I’m saying is a 4-0 is nice but tomorrow I’d rather Murphy hand balled a goal in the 94th minute in front of their own fans to send us through.

Ah, it's refreshing to know that the spirit of true sportsmanship isn't dead.

It was 05 semi but what we wouldn’t do for another Freddy in his prime.

Firstly I totally disagree with your opinion and secondly I was thinking more in terms of the table. We always seem to have a worse goal difference than teams around us so we always need the extra point to go ahead which, when you're as **** as we have been, is difficult, not to mention dangerous when you're near the bottom.
