Rich’s law for seeing how it’s all going
The law states that, at any given point in a season, Fulham should have about the same number of wins, draws and losses. Any imbalance one way or the other is either a signifier that Fulham have been better or worse than expected.
We currently have a record of: P13, W2, D6, L5
How to read this, then?
By Rich’s law for seeing how it’s all going (RLFSHAG) we are only really two defeats off pace, while having an extra draw in our favour.
Against that, lose tonight and we go to P14, W2, D6, L6, which means that RLFSHAG can only reach equilibrium in the near future if we win our next four games, which is a big ask.
But there’s nothing to say we have to get back on track in the near future.
Let’s give ourselves until game 24. To be on track after that match we need to go W6, D2, L3 over the next eleven matches, which looks tricky but might be achievable.
If we’re still off then it’s time to panic.
