Before we dive into our make-or-break 31st game of the season this afternoon, I thought it would be interesting to see how we are stacking up aginst the other two years captured at the 30-game mark in this thread, which also just happened to be our best (2016/17 - 2nd place) and worst (2021/22 - 10th place) seasons in recent memory.

I also ran the averages for 38-game seasons at the 30 game mark as a comparison, along with adding current end-of-season records as they stand.

Some key points:

  • Fail to win any of our last 8 games, and we will equal the all-time 107yr-old record for lowest number of wins in a season.  Likewise if we lose all of those 8, we will equal the most defeats in any 38-game season (please step forward Steve Paterson and Mark McGhee).  Of course if this were to happen we would undoubtedly have bigger, more downward, problems.
  • We still need to score 3 more goals to avoid setting a new all-time record for least goals scored in a campaign.  This should be easy, right?
  • We should continue to be extremely grateful to Steve Paterson and Mark McGhee, as thanks to their efforts we only have the 4th worst goal difference this century, rather than the worst.
  • We are almost 14 points behind the average for 30 games into a 38-game season. Fourteen.  We need a minimum of 5 points from 24 to avoid equalling ll-time worst points total in a modern 38 game season (Hi Steve).

Enjoy.

Wow, we were quite the team in 1935. What was it like watching those guys play @BigAl?
