You're going to justify the dropped points like this?
At this pace we'll be lucky to finish 7th.
6pts from 4 games is pretty much bang on the pace that will get you 7th.
You have no way of including extenuating circumstances in your view of results, do you?
Do you really think a point away to a newly promoted team in their first home game with 10 men, a point away to a team with form for comebacks when we also played 60 minutes with 10 men, and a point at home when decimated by injuries isn't progress? We should have had penalties in both the last two games too.
Last season we'd have lost all 3 of the drawn games.
