First 8 games - The Good, The OK and The Meh

Looking at our first 8 fixtures up to the International break, what do you feel is a minimum points total we should expect?

Arsenal V West Ham
West Ham V Leicester
West Ham V Bournemouth
Liverpool V West Ham
West Ham V Newcastle
Man City V West Ham
West Ham V Norwich
Sunderland V West Ham

On average, 10 points per 8 game block will take you to comfy upper mid-table.

From this group of games, I'd say we need to see at least 11 for it to be a satisfactory start. 13+ would be good, and -10 would be disappointing.

    13.
  • 15 points, really should be getting 3 points in all those home games and 3 points away to Sunderland.

    Anything under 12 would be disappointing.

  • You'd hope to win 3/4 of those home games.

    You'd expect nothing at Arsensl, LFC or City.

    Sunderland could easily be a draw.

    rav - my thoughts exactly.

    If only the Premier League was played on paper. ;weep

    As it isn't I'll say 13 = vg

    12 = still ok.

    11 = well, it's a funny old game.

    10 = a bit worried but it's a marathon not a sprint.

    Below 10 = worried now but coyi

    It's never to early to speculate!

    It's not a prediction game, just a guide as to what points total you would feel OK with after that run of games.

    A good opening run of 3 wins on the bounce followed but a losing streak of 3 losses in a row.
  • Grey ;ok

    11pts.......
  • Why can't we win at the Emirates on Sunday?

    Who's to say Arsenal can't have an off day or we play to our fullest potential and thrash them 0-4!
  • No one, MJ, no one at all...

  • Speculating that we'll start in confusion, and get into it by October - like last year - it may go
    0 no chance
    3 a six-pointer already!
    0 they're organized..
    1rodgerz out
    1Brolley gets revenge
    0close, but...
    3we're rolling
    3 steamrolling
    Need to keep the faith after 6 games, but 11 points from 8.
    Maybe.
  • I think we may be a of an unknown quality this season and that may give us a distinct advantage so,

    Draw
    Win
    Win
    Draw
    Win
    Loss
    Win
    Draw

    An optimistic 15 points.
  • 24 points good, 10 meh and 3 bad
  • 10 points, guaranteed and in the bag. That also gives us a bit of banana skin leeway against Bournemouth.
  • You'd hope to win 3/4 of those home games.

    You'd expect nothing at Arsensl, LFC or City.

    Sunderland could easily be a draw.
    ;doh ;lol
  • I want to change my prediction to 15 points ;whistle

    Luke - Nice use of "you'd" rather than "I'd".

    Lukerz - ITK ;cool

  • 3 more points and we got what i expected of us in first 8
  • Well I said 11pts so we're doing mighty fine.....mighty fine ;ok
  • So, it's 14 points after 8 games
    Would have taken that b4 season so I'm thinking its a real good start ;ok coyi
