    Interestingly though, the top four after 7 games last season were the top four to finish, though in a different order. Means nothing, means a lot.

    Really? I thought Plymouth started awful last season like we did, but just sorted it out much quicker

    I agree that the table doesn't mean a lot at this stage but a good start should not be underestimated. We need to get as many points on board as we can right now, make hay whilst the sun shines, so that we can ride through the inevitable bad patches of form and still come out in a healthy position.

    Think we didn't make it to 19 points last season until Orient away, which was late November!
    Very impressive work over the past 10 months. Hope we can keep our momentum going. I feel like last night's result is the kind of game that, a few years ago, we may not have found a way to come back and win - it feels like t current side just always expects to find a way back into the game and to score.

    Last season Argyle lost the first two games then won the next 6 (including us) and were top. After 16 games they were 7 points clear. Then they lost 3 in a row and got hauled back.

    Indeed they did but they sorted it out after three games and if memory serves me correctly were at one time at least five points clear at the top. They then hit an uncertain patch but their early and mid seasons results were enough to keep them safely in the top three.

    The first 10 games never means a lot, it just helps. No point winning the first 10 games if you lose the next 36. Sure the first 10 games are an indicator, but there's no point thinking that we're destined for playoffs just because we're top of the league in November.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd far rather see us in this position than where we were last year, and it's definitely positive
