I rightly abandoned the week-by-week predictortrons as they were too complicated and not accurate. But the SEASON predictortrons are still something to behold.
At the start of the season predictortron had us down for 52-57 points (54 was deemed most likely).
After our bad start (I ran this in late October when we weren’t doing very well) predictortron revised its estimate to 46 points.
Well blow me down if we haven’t just reached that total.
So there was nothing to panic about after all!
Over 38 games you’ll have ups and you’ll have downs. So just as we shouldn’t have overreacted to a slow start, we shouldn’t just assume that because we’ve had a good 2012 that the 2012-13 season will be a walk in the park. It doesn’t tend to work that way really (although increasingly, if you look at our starting 1-11 against others’ we’re a legit team). Anyway, the moral of the story: DON’T PANIC! Most teams lose lots of games and the fact that some of them come in a row perhaps doesn’t mean much (or does it? Zamora, Europa, transition(a), etc).
Anyway, we probably won’t reach 54 points but I reckon that’s probably about our level.
PS I’ve also mentioned how I always like Fulham to be about par on the WDL totals. We’re now 12-10-12, which is nice.
