    Am I missing something here?

    You draw 6 games and get 6 points. You win 3 and lose three and get 9 points. What's the point of having a massive unbeaten run, if you're not actually winning matches?

      And using your fine example of having an additional 3 points unless they were decent wins by clear margins it would've put us 2nd at best. We're doing far better than expected in spite of the draws and the 3 points for a win and a defeat being better than 2 draws has been mentioned many times on here.

      Your maths is very accurate. Noit sure how it translates to the real world though, do you mean that if we had conceded a late winner to Derby then we would have held on to beat QPR?

      You are missing something. Draws and Wins make up an unbeaten run. Our 22 match unbeaten had wins in them.

      Middlesbrough haven't had a massive unbeaten run and have lost 4 games. However, they have three more points than us and a vastly superior goal difference. I'm not convinced that I am missing something.

      Firstly, you don't lose and build a non-losing mentality. Then work on converting draws to wins.
      What you're missing is we were in a relegation battle this time last year.

      Yes, but maybe not enough, Middlesbro have three more defeats than us, yet are still three points better off.

      It was you just your example mentioned draws in an unbeaten run not wins. The thing for me that is important is average points per game, for the first time in a very long time we have an average of under 2 points per game. We now need to win against Brentford to get back our 2 point per game.

      As I said its points per game that matters to me. Up until yesterday we were on automatic promotion level.
