The price of not scoring

For those who who refuse to recognise the price we're paying for not putting our chances away, here's the reality: https://talksport.com/football/efl/612302/alternative-championship-table-after-11-games-based-on-expected-goals/
I don't know the answer and clearly neither does the boss, so we can only hope that the lads pull their socks up and start earning their money – and take their rightful place at the top of the table...

Somejne made point about Forshaw not scoring and he got shot down but he was correct and it’s even more noticeable now klichs goals have dried up.

We have a joke about what will happen first a goal from a header from a set piece or Forshaw scoring

A joke is supposed to be funny ADRK. That's not funny.

Over the last 5 season's, it has taken an average of goals to get automatic promotion. Our current goal average will see us finish on 63 goals. We need to find another 17 goals from our current form, that's like a completely new striker!

Strange how people say not scoring enough, why don't people look at last season and say 2 wins and a draw would have got us up!..

So, 3 games less lost and 2 goals more wouldn't have made that much difference on what we had but it would have got us up!..

We only need a run of form and we might do something, but, 2 points behind 1st in not,(NOT!)a bad place to be!..

I agree, it's not a bad place to be, but not only will the failure to score cost us points – it's likely to have a demoralising effect, as well as affecting confidence. Having said all that, Radz and Orta bought who they bought in summer and there's nothing we can do about that until Jan (is there?). We've had a few unlucky breaks (most recently at Millwall), but when the balls do finally start running for us, and the goals start to come, we've got to be ruthless and kill teams off, then we'll be unstoppable.

There is only 5 Pts between 5th and 13th and no
doubt most teams will be thinking if they get a run
of form they might well be top by Xmas or New Year,
conversely if we drop Pts in the immediate future we
could well be around 13th in the next few games so
being 2pts off the top at the moment is no big deal...
many other teams are just a few Pts off the top.

NJS, that means every team in the top half have the same chance of doing what everybody here thinks we will!..

The point is, at this moment in time we're 2 points off top, and people are going overboard and letting people think we're not good enough!..
