Comparisons with last season's promoted sides

OK, zero points from the opening 3 games is worrying stuff, but we knew it was a tough start. How does it compare against last season's promoted teams in terms of the opposition we've faced?


Manchester City 5 - 1 Norwich

Norwich 1 - 1 Wigan

Norwich 1 - 2 Manchester United


Manchester City 4 - 0 Swansea

Swansea 0 - 0 Wigan

Swansea 0 - 1 Manchester United


Manchester City 3 - 2 QPR

QPR 3 - 1 Wigan

QPR 0 - 2 Manchester United



So from the same games last season Norwich and Swansea had 1 point, QPR had 3. Its up for us to go to Arsenal and get a point, then the season can properly get into gear.

QPR beat Everton in their second game last year, but I'd look more at the Norwich and Swansea stats as we are a more similar team to them than QPR.


Yep, my bad, read that one wrong....!


Anything next game at arsenal is a bonus, but we really need to be picking up significant points in the home games against Villa and Fulham. If not, we'll be in massive trouble (and I think NA will be out of a job).

This first month or so is quite aberrant in terms of fixtures, and even without that aspect, the season doesn't bed in until October. We have played some great stuff but been learning some salutary lessons so far. Defence is the key problem area still not adequately addressed.


Worry if we are bottom or thereabouts Jan 1st 2013.


Worry a lot more if we are bottom or thereabouts 19th May 2013.
