This season is now one of our best for decades. There's records being broken all over the place, but this is now our best 38 game season for 20 years. We currently have 16 wins and 59 points, having scored 64 goals.
In 1990/91 Peter Reid guided us to fifth place, where we acquired 17 wins and 62 points and scored 64 goals. Nothing's guaranteed but I'm sure we'll surpass the goals record and probably the points record too. We won't definitely get another two wins but we've got a decent chance.
If we're allowed to include 42 game seasons then we go back to 1977/78, when we won 20 games and scored 74 goals. We only won 52 points but this was the two points for a win era, adjust it for three and it works out at 72 points. (Sixteen of those league goals were scored by our current Assisstant Manager.)
We probably won't match 20 wins, 74 goals will be tight, and 72 points might be beyond us - although it is a fictional target. The point is though that this will surely be our best ever 38 game top flight season, and we have to go back 32 years to find a 42 game season when we did better - and we could well surpass that level. Which underlines our achievement.
