Record Watch 2011-12

by Franchise FC » 17 Aug 2011 21:55

A bit early I know, but I was stunned by the extremely low number of sides that still have a chance of 13 wins - it's only 10 of 92.

Bolton
Manchester City
Manchester United
Wolverhampton
(and this lot above have only played one game)

Southampton
Brighton
Derby

Charlton
Sheff Utd

Rotherham

There are still 92 teams that have the chance of reaching 106 points !!!!
(I'm not listing that lot)

Looking at the way West Ham demolished Watford last night they could be on for the 106.

^ by that logic. so could a lot of teams who have had impressive starts to the season :lol:

And as has been shown over the past few seasons - most tend to fall away from the 106 pace by Christmas, and the remainder by around February. Don't forget that Newcastle didn't manage to beat the record two years ago and they pretty much strolled to the title.

For 45 minutes we gave them a decent game but a very soft goal (2nd) right on half time killed us and they had it easy after the break.

12 out of 92 - you missed out Tottenham and Everton.

It will be 11 games in at the earliest for teams outside the top flight to be unable to beat 106 points; 3 games in for teams in the PL.

I know they've got fewer points to play for but Blackburn can't get 106 - the first casualty - 90 to go

I wonder if there is another club in the world with RFC's relatively small stature to hold a collection of such impressive records?

Most points in a league season, most wins to begin a season, most goals in a single game - I just imagine these records are the preserve of the 'big teams' in other countries.

To be fair there's nothing prestigious about the last one. We largely hold that record because we conceded 7.
